Saturday April 9, 2016 was put aside to celebrate President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni’s win for the Uganda elections of February 2016.
The venue was Kololo Independence grounds in the Kampala area.
The Kololo independence grounds were filled to the brim.
On this same day, the opposition supporters of FDC, Dr. Kizza Besigye had wanted to hold their own celebration of having won the same elections. They were not given permission to celebrate. Dr. Besigye was prevented from going to Nakivubo to hold parallel celebrations.
The police had earlier provided traffic information for this celebration so there were no disruptions beyond the usual Kampala traffic jam.
Dr. Jose Chameleon was one of the entertainers (Tubonga nawe) and one can see from the crowd that he still holds clout.
Meanwhile some pundits say that the Kololo NRM celebrations were filled with paid people or crime preventers but no one has proven this as a fact.
