President Yoweri Museveni on Thursday made a triumphant entry into Kampala as he returned from his country home in Rwakitura in Kiruhura district following the January, 14th election victory.
The President who was elected for a sixth term in office clad in his campaign trademark yellow shirt was being escorted by the First Lady, Janet Museveni as they made several stopovers in major towns along the Kampala-Mbarara highway.
The convoy which was travelling at a very slow speed was on several occasions forced to stop by supporters who either prostrated or stood in front of his official vehicle forcing him to wave at them.
In other towns where the gathering was big, Museveni would stop and use the open roof of his official vehicle to speak to his supporters who were chanting NRM songs.
On several occasions, Museveni’s security details found a hard time to control the supporters who poured into the roads to welcome him.
On the few occasions he stopped, Museveni applauded the supporters for voting him in the just concluded elections but warned them that what they were doing to gather in large numbers was not good for their health.
According to analysts, Museveni’s grand entry into Kampala as he returned from his country home in Rwakitura was a statement to doubters of his support.
