Bobi Wine: Deaths of prominent people due to ‘blood clots’ and ‘heart attacks’ leaves a lot of questions

The former presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu has called for an independent investigation into the death of the Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIGP) Maj. Gen. Paula Lokech.

Gen Lokech died on Saturday morning at his home in Kitikifumba, Kira municipality. According to a postmortem report, the gallant soldier died of a blood clot that had been carried into the lungs.

The former MP raised questions about the manner of death of very many prominent persons in the past few years.

“To date, there are many deaths which have left more questions than answers and this is one of them. While we know that death is a fact of life, the pattern of deaths of prominent persons due to ‘blood clots’ and ‘heart attacks’ leaves many questions.” Bobi Wine said

Archbishop of Kampala Diocese Dr. Cyprian Kizito is the latest prominent person who died of blood clot. The post-mortem report from Mulago national referral hospital indicated that Dr Lwanga succumbed to Ischemic heart disease following coronary heart thrombosis.

“I therefore join with the elders and leaders of Acholi sub-region as well as other concerned citizens of Uganda in their demand for an independent investigation into the cause of this death. Even as we make this demand, we know that the regime never allows any such thing to happen. Ultimately, most answers will come out when Museveni is long gone.” he said

“I want to send deepest condolences to his family, friends and the UPDF fraternity. I also send deep condolences to the people of Acholi sub-region for losing a dear son, who defied the odds and rose to the top. Gen. Lokech was a gallant, courageous and fine soldier. A lot has been said about his bravery on the battle-field. His peers talk of how he commanded from the front, sometimes putting his life on the line. He had such a distinguished military career which many younger officers and men were eager to emulate.” Bobi said
