Lukwago, who was seated in the area reserved for VIPs, was helped out of the church by two men and evacuated through the door linking to the priest’s residence shortly after his sugar levels went down, according to a source close to him.

Last year, Lukwago was admitted to Nairobi hospital after being diagnosed with acute anaphylaxis, an allergic reaction to some foods, insects, stings and medicine.

This condition cause the immune system to overreact to the allergen by releasing chemical and cause one to go to shock, experience a drop in blood pressure and blockage in breath.
