As you are aware, the Uganda Martyrs Day Celebrations will fall on the 03/06/2021. However, due to the deadly second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, the celebrations will be conducted in a scientific manner will only have 200 invitees respectively.
Therefore, we would like to remind the thousands of pilgrims and other faith based tourists from upcountry, as well as from the immediate neighbouring countries of the DRC, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, South Sudan and Burundi, not to trek the long distance, but to instead follow the religious celebrations on TV, Radio and other digital platforms.
To the few invitees, we congratulate them and further encourage them to cooperate with the requests of our security teams in and around the venues, especially when getting through the check and search points.
Even if the celebrations are low key, and with no specific threats directed towards the scientific religious festivity, the Joint Security Teams have secured the event with a mix of overt, covert and surveillance teams, deployed in and around the venue.
