Prersident Museveni on trek (picture by Bcc)

By Our Reporter

January is mostly a slow month, but not for the country’s leadership. Fresh from a 195kilometer trek, an evidently lean president Museveni and party members celebrated 34 years of the Movement.  The trek, a journey tracing the footsteps of the National Resistance Army journey in what they called a move to

liberate Uganda in the early 1980s. Dubbed the Afrika Kwetu trek, it lasted six days and seemed successful in creating the much desired buzz.

Though many refused to believe that the President had walked, Government mouth piece Ofwono Opondo buried these allegations in a heated debated on Capital radio, as the Observer would later report. “We trekked the full distance of 195km but certainly, no one walked all this because we had motorized sections [of about] 100km,” Opondo said. With a little nudging, the Observer also claimed that Opondo dismantled a carefully constructed government-spun narrative that President Museveni, the chief-walker, trekked 195km in a symbolic journey down memory lane to retrace theatres of the NRA/NRM rebel conflict that catapulted him to power 34 years ago.

As the buzz continued, there was another event in the waiting; the National Liberation Day, celebrated every 26th day of January which happened on Saturday. They further wrote that Ofwono said that a section meant to be covered on foot measured 95km, and only five people including himself, state ministers; Godfrey Kiwanda (Tourism) and Peter Ogwang (ICT) plus some army officers completed the stretch. While lawyers Asuman Basalirwa (Hon) and lawyer Mary-Anne Kasule refused to see how a 75year-old Museveni would walk that long, tourism enthusiasts believed that the trek Galamba in Wakiso to Birembo in Kakumiro district should provide for another tourism experience.

 Wouldn’t that be a nice thing?
