The Kampala city Lord Mayor, Ssalongo Erias Lukwago has been hurriedly rushed to hospital after collapsing and blacking out during the requiem mass for fallen Archbishop Lwanga which is under way at Rubaga Cathedral.
Lukwago who was seated in the VIP section fainted during the mass and qas helped out by some of his aides who were on standby.
Lukwago’s illness which is also believed to be linked to poisoning brought him to his knees last year and he was flown to Aga Khan hospital in neighbouring Kenya for a review. He was reportedly diagnosed with acute anaphylaxis, a reaction to some foods, and weather conditions.
By the time of filing this report, Lukwago was steadily recuperating and his sugar levels were being balanced.
