KIU, Main Campus - As Uganda prepares for the 12th May 2021 swearing-in ceremony of President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni at Kololo Independence Grounds, the Uganda Police Defence Force (UPDF) has warned individuals plotting violence and threatening to disrupt the ceremony.
Speaking to the media on 26th April at Naguru police headquarters, UPDF spokesperson Brig Flavia Byekwaso brought to attention the continued hate speech by a section of individuals through the help of foreigners who plan to stop the president's swearing-in ceremony.
“The posters circulating in the city have words like, “Tajja Kulayila Nomuganda Afugeko,” “Nga 1st May, Kusiiba Tugobe Abahiima”, Byekwaso said.
These posters have however been confiscated as they may instigate violence within the public resulting in the destruction of property and loss of lives.
President Museveni's swearing-in ceremony under the theme, "Shaping Uganda's destiny; our sole collective effort" will mark the beginning of his sixth term in the Presidential office.
A total of about 15 heads of state and other dignitaries are expected to grace the occasion come 12th May.
As we wait for the swearing-in ceremony, let's try to avoid commotion and chaos incited by the specified group of individuals that plan to stop the ceremony as UPDF follows its leads to arrest the suspects.
