Bazzukulu to host President Museveni’s 79th Birthday Fete at Kololo

Kampala, (UG): Ugandan youths branded as Bazzukulu Ba Museveni are set to throw a mega Birthday celebration for President Museveni at Kololo Independence Grounds come September 8, 2023.

President Yoweri Museveni born in 1944, 17 years and a few months to Uganda’s Independence will be making 79 years of age on the 15th of September, 2023.

Born to the late Amos Kaguta and Esteri Kokundeka Nganzi in Ntungamo District, Western part of Uganda in the Ankole Region, Museveni has been Uganda’s Head of State since 1986 after leading a successful guerilla liberation war in the jungles of Luwero Triangle.

With controversy surrounding Museveni’s birthday, a section of some opposition youths previously celebrated the President’s birthday in June (2011), an event which was met with stiff resistance from the Uganda Police. The Uganda Youth Democrats (UYD) who were then by the current Luwero District Woman MP, Hon. Brenda Nabukenya were refuting the birth year of President Museveni expressing him as an extremely old person of 76 years in 2011.

However, credible sources trashed the UYD agenda and said it was done in malice with the intention to win political gains and favours for the responsible group of Hon. Nabukenya under the leadership of Mr Nobert Mao now serving as a Minister for Justice and Constitutional Affairs under the President Museveni administration.

In regards to the President’s actual birthday, the Bazzukulu under the leadership of the National Coordinator and Manager of ONC (Office of the National Chairman- NRM), Hajjat Hadijah Namyalo Uzeiye are to host a mega birthday celebration for the beloved Jajja Museveni on the 8th of September, 2023 at Kololo Independence Grounds.

Reliably informed sources in the ruling NRM party told this website that the event has since been cleared by the security organs including the SFC, and that several key political figures have already joined the Bazzukulu Ba Museveni organizing committee to see that it turns out a success.

Dr Brenda Tibamwenda the Spokesperson of the Office of the National Chairman further affirmed the President’s birthday in a post via X (formerly Twitter) saying; “Mark your calendar date as 08th Sept. 2023 at Kololo Airstrip as we celebrate H.E Museveni’s Birthday in a memorable journey of his leadership” officially affirming the mega birthday celebration.

The pioneer mega President’s Birthday party which runs under the theme “Developing the Culture of Entrepreneurship in Youth, Women plus all Ugandans” is set to focus on promoting Museveni’s agenda of socio-economic transformation by empowering the Youth and Women to secure their future through Wealth and Job Creation while reflecting on his achievements in the last 78 years of his life journey.

On inquiry about the funding to the event, the ONC Officer-In-Charge of Mobilization Ms Rosette Kazaire clarified via a telephone dialogue that “All funds are donations from the Bazzukulu and friends of Muzee who are contributing at a free will”.

This mega birthday has tuned the talk in the cities and across the country with the Office of the National Chairman Network of Coordinators intensifying what they refer to as a worthy cause celebration on traditional and digital Media Stations in Uganda.

This will be the pioneer publically celebrated birthday for President Museveni away from his usually private celebrations organized by his family members.

To confirm the participation of all the big wigs in the NRM party and State House regarding this 8th September 2023 Birthday event, our source in State House informed this reporter that, “The event is true and Bazzukulu Ba Muzee are in – charge of it. State House is not funding this event and they are on their own with Namyalo. However, Muzee seems to be happy about his Bazzukulu intentions”.
