Only just above 4000 people will attend President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni’s swearing-in, Esther Mbayo, the minister of the presidency has announced.
Mr. Museveni will swear in next week on 12th May.
“I take the Honour to inform you and the world over that on 12th May 2021, Uganda will hold the Swearing-In Ceremony for the President elect Yoweri Kaguta Museveni who was successfully re-elected into Office for another Term,” minister Mbayo revealed.
The President – elect Yoweri Museveni was declared the winner of the January 14th 2021 Presidential Elections with 58.38% by the Independent Electoral Commission of Uganda defeating the other 10 presidential candidates that participated in the Race.
The theme for the Swearing-In Ceremony is, “Securing the Future”.
The function will take place at Kololo Ceremonial Grounds in Kampala starting at 7:00 a.m. The Swearing-In Ceremony will be very different from the usual.
She added: “In other words, it will be a ‘scientific’ one i.e we have extended invitations to few numbers of people to the tune of 4,042.”
The logic behind limiting the usual numbers and the fanfare that characterize such functions is to be able to strictly observe the Standard Operating Procedures set out by Ministry of Health against the spread of Covid 19 pandemic. This function is therefore strictly by invite.
The rest of the Ugandans will watch the proceedings on all our national televisions and radio Stations, says Hon Esther Mbayo.
