Ms Mbayo in the statement- said President Museveni had ”extended invitation to 42 heads of state’’, from a pool of over 190 world over- to attend his swearing-in ceremony themed, ‘’Securing your future.’’

Ms Mbayo, asserted that the ruling ‘’National Resistance Movement (NRM) party’s goal is to transform Uganda from a peasant to a modern, industrial and prosperous society by 2040.’’

She explained that the function to be held at Kololo Independence grounds on May 12, just over a week after Uganda confirmed its first Indian Covid-19 variant B.1.617- will be restricted to about 4,000 invited guests with limited fanfare.

‘’All invited guests will undergo Covid-19 tests. The National Organizing Committee has done all necessary measures to sit guests in such a manner that there will be proper social distancing,’’ she said.

Mr Museveni, who has been President for 35 years now, was declared winner with 58 per cent of a poll that was marked with contestation and a violent electoral season that claimed over 55 lives, leaving hundreds arbitrarily behind bars.
