The function is due at the plush hotel’s Ball Room starting 4pm.
The family has organized a public lecture in which a special tribute will be paid to the two-time president for having led a struggle for self rule from British colonialists.
Political economists Andrew Mwenda will present a paper after which the public shall be urged to respond to it.
The lecture comes on the backdrop of President Yoweri Museveni’s pronouncement yesterday that Milton Obote played a significant part in organizing the political space for Uganda’s autonomy in 1962.
Obote is the man who hoisted the national flag. He passed away in 2005.
