Uganda on Sunday marked the 34th anniversary of the Liberation Day, when the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) took over power after a five-year guerrilla war.

President Yoweri Museveni presided over the commemoration in the western district of Ibanda under the theme, “Celebrating NRM’s patriotic struggle that ushered in national unity and socio-economic transformation.”


Among the foreign dignitaries who attended the celebrations was former Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete.

Ninty-five people were awarded medals for their contribution during the liberation struggle and independence of the country.

Museveni took over power on Jan. 26, 1986. His rebel group, the National Resistance Army, was later transformed into the NRM. Enditem
