The National Resistance Movement (NRM) Liberation Day celebrations for this year 2024 will be held in Jinja City, organizers have confirmed.

According to a communication from Kirunda Faruk, Deputy Press Secretary to the President, the celebrations will be presided over physically by President Museveni.Kirunda says that they expect those accredited to attend the function to undertake COVID tests, these include journalists who intend to cover the function.

“The Covid-19 test for reporters in Kampala will be taken on January 24, 2024, at the State House Lands Office along Lumumba Avenue in Nakasero while for those in Jinja, it will be at Jinja Regional Referral Hospital on the same day at 9 am,” a statement from Kirunda reads in part.

The NRA will be celebrating the 38th anniversary of the liberation of Uganda in 1986.

On January 26th 1986, President Yoweri Museveni together with fellow revolutionaries stormed Kampala and ushered in a new chapter in our history. The sole driving ideology for those patriots was to liberate Ugandans from the tyrannical regimes at the time.

During the Swearing-in ceremony on 29 January 1986, President Museveni promised Ugandans a fundamental change: “No one should think that what is happening today is a mere change of guard; it is a fundamental change in the politics of our Country.”

The above promise created a central rallying point within the population to pull together towards rebuilding Uganda after many years of despair. The country had gone through tough times due to bad governance from 1966 to 1986.
