President Museveni prepares a striking entrance into Kampala city as he celebrates January, 14 landslide victory.
On Saturday, Yoweri Museveni was announced the winner of the passionately contested January, 14 ballots after collecting 58.6% of the votes against his closest rival and National Unity Platform’s Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine who scored 34.8% of the cast votes.
The incumbent is yet to make an imposing return leaving his country home in Rwakitura, Kiruhura to Kampala for the first time since the preceding week of the polls.
“President Museveni returns to Kampala today from his country home in Rwakitura for the first time since his re-election on January, 14,” posted Don Wanyama, Senior Presidential Press Secretary on his media pages.
Museveni with the convoy salute will be received by the ruling NRM party supporters in major towns along the Kampala-Mbarara highway following the day’s program.
He will accordingly make stopovers at Lyantonde, Kyazanga, Lukaya, Kayabwe, Mpigi, Busega and later at the Constitutional Square in Kampala.
Like before during his campaigns, Museveni will not move out of the vehicle to greet his supporters for fear of Coronavirus.
Recently, numerous leaders from across the world led by Russia’s Vladimir Putin have since congratulated Yoweri Museveni upon re-election to lead Uganda for the fourth decade.
However, since the declaration of the incumbent Museveni on Saturday following the January, 14 polls, his closest rival Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu disputed the results whose process allegedly was undermined by the widespread illegalities. This remains to be observed whether Kyagulanyi will challenge the incumbent in court.
