The Minister for Presidency Esther Mbayo said Tuesday, ‘’21 heads of state both from Africa and the rest of the world have so far’’ confirmed their presence ahead of President Museveni’s inauguration ceremony that’s scheduled for May 12.

Ms Mbayo in the statement- said President Museveni had ”extended invitation to 42 heads of state’’, from a pool of over 190 world over- to attend his swearing-in ceremony themed, ‘’Securing your future.’’

Ms Mbayo, asserted that the ruling ‘’National Resistance Movement (NRM) party’s goal is to transform Uganda from a peasant to a modern, industrial and prosperous society by 2040.’’

She explained that the function to be held at Kololo Independence grounds on May 12, just over a week after Uganda confirmed its first Indian Covid-19 variant B.1.617- will be restricted to about 4,000 invited guests with limited fanfare.

‘’All invited guests will undergo Covid-19 tests. The National Organizing Committee has done all necessary measures to sit guests in such a manner that there will be proper social distancing,’’ she said.

Mr Museveni, who has been President for 35 years now, was declared winner with 58 per cent of a poll that was marked with contestation and a violent electoral season that claimed over 55 lives, leaving hundreds arbitrarily behind bars.
