Live: State Of The Nation Address

Ugandans are all heads up as they await to hear the outcomes of the State of the nation address where the president of Uganda Yoweri Museveni is expected to explain to Ugandans on what the government is doing to ensure the that the Pearl of Africa becomes a middle income country.

The president arrived at Kampala Serena Hotel where the address will be amidst very tight security and he immediately inspected the guard of hour which was mounted for him as more dignitaries continued to stream in.

However, according to an instruction given, no mobile phones are allowed inside the hall where the president will address the nation from and we had earlier heard that journalists are/will not be be allowed to release videos and photos of dignitaries who will fall asleep during the address.

The address was officially kicked off 3.43 PM with singing of  the Uganda national anthem followed by the East Africa’s and by the time we went to press, HE Yoweri Kaguta Museveni had taken to the podium to give the long awaited State Of The Nation Address after being introduced by Right Honorable Rebecca Kadaga (Speaker of the parliament of Uganda) who first gave her  opening remarks

In some of the things Museveni has highlighted  so far is that, there shall no longer be arresting citizens for being ‘idle and disorderly’, Uganda is well equioed to fight terrorism and could be be safer than United Kingdom, government to tarmac roads among others. The #SOTNA17 continues

Check out how the address is going on in pictures;
