In my last years of service in UA I worked in what was called the NAAFI...Navy, Army and Airforce Institute...some kind of Army shop, name copied from the British. We had no Navy! Anyhow, we used to receive some goodies from the UK, remember the Stansted shuttle? These at times included Newspapers and magazines.
In October 1972 we got a bundle that included the Sunday Times Magazine of 22nd. I grabbed it before the CO saw it and I have kept it in my archives ever since. It gave coverage of the highlights of Kabaka Mutesa's life, under the heading, 'The King who died in Bermondsey', written by one Mark Amory.
Below are excerpts from that magazine. I think it might settle some of your doubts and the speculations of many. He was a heavy drinker and as those excerpts show, at PM he was found with 408mg of alcohol per 100 ml of blood. That was above the life-threatening threshold of 400.
That is at the balcony of the flat in which he died. As you can see, the conditions under which he lived had pushed him into smoking DIY cigarettes.
