Rwanda and Uganda continue to maintain a parallel relationship, with inside sources indicating that President Paul Kagame will travel to Kampala to attend the birthday celebrations of first son, Lt Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba.
As the relationship between Rwanda and Uganda continues to remain parallel, inside sources indicated that President Paul Kagame will be in Kampala to attend the birthday celebrations of first son Lt Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba.
Gen Muhoozi will on Saturday, April 23rd hold celebrations to mark his 48th birthday. Based on an article published by the Nile post, among the guests expected in attendance is Mr Kagame who has spent nearly four years without visiting Uganda due to misunderstandings.
“I can confirm he will be here tomorrow (Saturday) to attend Muhoozi’s birthday celebration,” nile post quoted a statement from the foreign affairs minister, Jeje Odongo confirming the news about Kagame’s visit.
Nile Post quoted further saying that the foreign affairs ministry has also assigned a minister to ensure Mr. Kagame is welcomed safely into the country.
This, however, comes at a time when the police have announced that several roads will be blocked on Saturday with access left only for those making their way to the party venue.
Addressing journalists on Friday, SP Kauma Nsereko Rogers the Kampala Metropolitan Police Traffic Commander said guests making their way to the venue will be dropped off at the entrance with all vehicles expected to be packed at different designated areas.
He revealed that parking will be at the Kololo Ceremonial Grounds, City High School, Forest Mall and Game Parking spaces.
“Traffic flow towards Jinja Road is going to be diverted right at Wampewo Roundabout to Old Portbell Road. Traffic flow from the Jinja side to the City Centre will remain normal,” SP Nsereko said.
“Guests will be dropped off at the entrance and the vehicles will be proceeding to the different parking spaces that have been allocated. Some will also park at the KCCA Grounds Shoprite road where Prophet Mbonye usually holds his crusades,” he added.
He, however, mentioned that cars found abandoned on roadsides will be towed to any nearest police station at the owners’ cost and inconvenience.
Meanwhile, he said many activities are scheduled to take place in and around Kampala beginning with a marathon early in the morning from Kololo Ceremonial Grounds.
“It will be via Elgon Terrace – Accacia Avenue – Upper Kololo Terrace – Lugogo Bypass Kati Kati Junction – Kiira Road – Mulago Round About – Yusuf Lule Road – Fairway Hotel Traffic Lights – Accacia Avenue – Lower Kololo Terrace – Wampewo Avenue – Kololo Ceremonial Grounds.”
