President Salva Kiir Mayardit is in Entebbe ahead of Ugandan President-Elect Yoweri Museveni's inauguration ceremony scheduled for tomorrow May 12, 2021.

He is accompanied by the Minister of presidential affairs Dr. Barnaba Marial Benjamin and the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Betreace Khamisa Wani.

More than 10 heads of state have confirmed their attendance at the ceremony to take place at the Kololo Grounds in Kampala.

Museveni came into power in 1986 after overthrowing General Tito Okello, whose regime lasted for only 181 days, and he has won all presidential elections in Uganda. This will be his 6th swearing-in ceremony.

Meanwhile, opposition politicians Bobi Wine and Kizza Besigye say their homes have been surrounded by police ahead of the ceremony.

Wine also claims Museveni’s swearing-in for the sixth time as President is “illegal”. On the other hand, Besigye wondered why the police were deployed to his house yet he is out of the country.

But Uganda’s National Army Deputy Spokesperson, Deo Akiiki, addressing the nation on television defended the police deployment, saying the move was meant to avert possible chaos.

According to reports by Ntv Uganda, Museveni’s inauguration has been marred by an increased security presence especially in urban areas and their environs.

In January, Museveni won the highly contentious elections in Uganda after garnering more than 5 million votes, representing 58.64% of the total valid votes. - Radio Tamazuj
