Health issues: apparently fine. He is a scholar who never held any diocese. 

 

2. Jozef Tomko (1924)

5. Francisco Alvarez Martinez (1925)

10. Emmanuel Wamala (1926)

image.jpeg.41dfe569a9e22ca8bdc42abb2b0d5093.jpeg

 

Health: how is this guy still alive? It was a continued hospitalization for him two or three years ago. His successor died last week. Uberfrail.
