The Presidency is however still waiting for a feedback from the Prime Minister before making it public.

When contacted on phone Tuwebaze confirmed the development but added that they are still waiting for the confirmation.

“We have the arrangement to make Thursday a more memorable day by also making it a public holiday. Many of  the 5 million people who voted for the President want to attend but might be tied by their employment demands,” Tumwebaze said.

The day’s program released by the minister today indicates that the function will begin at 7:00am with the arrival of invited guests, who include out-going and in-coming members of parliament, political party leaders, former presidential candidates, delegations from all the districts, members of the diplomatic corp, religious leaders, traditional and cultural leaders, members of the academia, and the business community among others.

The President Elect, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, and First Lady and Minister for Karamoja Affairs Hon. Janet Kataha Museveni will arrive at 10:40am and the event subsequently kicks off.
