State House has suddenly changed the theme for President Yoweri Museveni swearing in ceremony.
Uganda Media Centre indicates that an ingredient called “steady progress” has been added to the new theme under which Museveni will take office for fifth time as Uganda’s leader.
Government spokesperson Ofwono Opondo had earlier said the ceremony scheduled for May 2, 2016 at Kololo Independence Grounds, would be held under the theme: “Building Uganda Is Our Collective Responsibility”.
Now, it will run under the theme: “A firm foundation built for Uganda’s steady progress.”
#SteadyProgress is a vote catchword that NRM came up with during the 2016 election campaigns.
It literally meant that the NRM government has steadily presided over the progress of Uganda’s development over the last 30 years.
Museveni won the 2016 election with 60 percent after defeating his rival and opposition leader Kizza Besigye who came second with 35 percent while his former Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi got 35 percent.
Besigye says he will hold a demonstration to ensure the right winner of 2016 elections is sworn in.
Meanwhile, government has already invited 50 Heads of State including US President Barack Obama and UK Prime Minister David Cameron to attend the inauguration.
