Over 21 Heads of State and world leaders have confirmed that they will attend the swearing-in ceremony of Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni.
According to a report by Xinhua News Agency, a top government official on Tuesday confirmed that the other global leaders will attend the function on May 12, 2020.
Minister for the presidency Esther Mboyo told reporters that the leaders will attend the function.
“His Excellency the President has extended invitations to 42 Heads of State both from Africa and the rest of the world, and so far 21 have confirmed attendance,” said Ms Mbayo.
She said that the function will be held at Kololo Independence ceremonial grounds in the capital Kampala, under strict Covid-19 prevention measures.
The minister said 4,000 guests, including former presidential candidates, have been invited to attend the function to be held after Museveni was declared the winner of the January 14 elections.
Museveni came into power in 1986 after winning a five-year guerilla warfare. Since then, he has won several elections.
