This is to inform the nation that the 27th NRA/NRM Anniversary celebrations which were due to take place on Saturday 26th January 2013 have been postponed to Wednesday 30th January 2013.
Accordingly government has declared Wednesday 30th January 2013 a public holiday to allow the nation to celebrate this day.
The postponement has been occasioned by the fact that Saturday 26th January 2013 was not a suitable date for some of the state guests expected for the event. We expect delegations from several counties to grace the occasion. Egypt and the Democratic Republic of Congo have confirmed sending delegations and details from other countries will be made available during the course of this week.
The 27th NRM/NRA Anniversary, to be presided over by President Yoweri Museveni, will be hosted at Nyakasanga grounds, Nyamwamba division, in Kasese Municipality.
The day will be celebrated under the theme: “Lessons from Our History: NRM’s Commitment to Create a Better Future for Uganda”.
And owing to these changes, district celebrations are also postponed and the district leaders are advised to hold their celebrations either on 30th January 2013 or thereafter.
