123, landmark address


As a rheumatologist, Lutalo’s work involved diagnosing and treating inflammatory conditions that affect the joints, tendons, ligaments, bones, and muscles.

According to a statement from the Uganda Medical Association (UMA) to which Dr Lutalo was a member, the experienced medic succumbed to bowel cancer on March 2 age 75 after a long fight for his life.

“He worked in several hospitals in Uganda, including Mulago and Mbale hospitals. He worked in Zimbabwe at Kwe Kwe, Gweru and Harare Central hospitals,” said the statement.

“He also worked at King Faisal Hospital in Kigali, Rwanda, from where he was appointed clinical professor of medicine and rheumatologist.”

After his stint in Rwanda, Lutalo returned to Uganda and retired, although he continued to practise as a consultant rheumatologist at Case Hospital in Kampala on a part-time basis.

He studied medicine between 1968 and 1973.

Lutalo who was born on September 3, 1946, is survived by his wife, Angella Kiyingi Lutalo, and four daughters – two of whom followed in their father’s footsteps and became medical doctors.

“Funeral arrangements will be announced in due course. Our deepest condolences to the family and friends. May his soul rest in eternal peace,” the medical association eulogised.


There will be a Funeral Service at Namirembe Cathedral on Friday 11th March 2022 at 12:00pm, followed by vigil at their home in Bunga- Kalungu starting with a service at 06:00pm.

Burial will take place at their ancestral home in Mpigi- Nakaseta Zirobwe Road on Saturday 12th March 2022 starting with a service at 11:00am.

Informed are: Relatives, Friends and In-laws.

    Mrs. Angela Lutalo was my teacher in Senior 1 and senior 2 before she moved to Zimbabwe. Her younger sister, Rose, was my classmate and we roomed together in the same dormitory.
    I heard a lot about Dr. and Mrs. Lutalo from Rose who lived with them before they moved to Zimbabwe.
    I am very sorry to learn of the sad demise of Dr. Lutalo. I pray for the peaceful repose of his soul and that God may grant his family and loved ones comfort and healing during this time. I especially pray for my teacher, Mrs. Lutalo, and for your children, that God’s comfort rests on you and remains with you, now and always.
    Love and God bless.
