Nearly a week ago, The EC announced Museveni as the winner of the 2021 presidential elections. He gathered 58.64% of the cast votes. This percentage helped him to beat his rivals, the closest being National Unity Platform’s Robert Kyagulanyi.
The president who was elected for his sixth term was escorted by the first lady, Janet Museveni. They made several stopovers in major towns along the Kampala-Mbarara highway.
Supporters forced the convoy to stop on many occasions. The supporters either prostrated or stood in front of his vehicle forcing him to wave at them.
If the gathering was very big, Museveni would stop and use the open roof of his vehicle to speak to his supporters who were chanting NRM songs.
Museveni’s security detail even found a hard time controlling the mob who poured into the roads to welcome him.
However, on few occasions, he stopped, applauded his supporters for voting for him. He also told them that what they were doing to gather in large numbers was bad for their health.
Museveni’s caution on health
‘’Thank you for voting me but I had not known that you had gathered to wait for me. It is not good to gather in such big numbers since you may contract the virus,’’ he said
He also said he wouldn’t talk much then, but that he would later address the nation on radio and TV.
