Other activities of the big day are expected to begin at 11:30 am with the National Anthem and Ekitiibwa Kya Buganda.

Police’s warning came against the backdrop of several accidents reported at Mutebi’s visit of Entebbe last Friday.

“Accidents occurred as a result of reckless riding by excited boda boda cyclists,” said Ssenkumbi.

One of the cyclists Robert Kyegombe died after trying to overtake his colleagues who were rushing to the venue.

You should not celebrate recklessly this time because there are also other road users,” added Ssenkumbi.
