Birthday party

A birthday dinner was organised for Muhoozi by his friends from the military, Parliament and civil services at Speke Resort Munyonyo.

Gagamel singer Moses Ssali aka Bebe Cool was among those who entertained the guests, warming up the event.

“I want to thank the very many hundreds of people who sent me birthday wishes. I’m touched and honoured by all your love and support. I thank you from the bottom of my heart,” Muhoozi said.

Speaking at his birthday dinner, the Senior Presidential Adviser on Special Operations, asked government to build a memorial museum to document Uganda’s past wars and political troubles.

He said young people do not have access to information on Uganda’s troubled political history.

“For example, I don’t see why we cannot have a memorial museum, or expand the existing museum to include the many wars, rebellions and political upheavals our country went through. Can our leaders in government and Parliament work on this?” he said.

He said the museum would help the youth understand how Uganda went through turbulence to achieve the current stability.

He proposed that a special fund be set up for projects directed at urban youth especially in sports.

Others who attended the event include; Chief of Staff Land Forces, Maj Gen Leopold Kyanda, the Deputy IGP Maj Gen Sabiiti Muzeyi, the Chief of Staff Airforce Maj Gen James Birungi, Lt Col Edith Nakalema and the commander of the Special Forces Command, Maj Gen Don Nabasa, businessman Patrick Bitature, minister Evelyn Anite and Members of Parliament.
