A second postmortem report on the cause of death of the fallen Chief Magistrate of Makindye Court, Richard Mafabi has been released.
Similar to the first report from Mukwaya General Hospital, where Mafabi had died, the new report from Mulago also indicates that the cause of death for Mafabi was a blood clot in his brain.
This had earlier been rejected by the late’s family calling for a second postmortem to be carried out. They held a belief Mafabi had not died a natural death.
Mafabi collapsed suddenly Sunday afternoon and died as he was being rushed to Mukwaya General Hospital in Nsambya, Kampala, for treatment. According to the first postmortem report, the judge died of a blood clot in his brain.
However, this has been dismissed by his family, calling for another postmortem. They believe their relative didn’t die a natural death.
Mafabi came into the limelight a few weeks back when he handled a very high profile case involving the Inspector General of police, Gen Kale Kayihura.
He issued an order summoning Kayihura to Court to answer to torture charges. Kayihura consistently dodged court until when the order was cancelled by a High Court judge, Joseph Murangira.
