“Everyone should get a copy of the newspaper because there is a lot to learn,” he said.
The price for the unique edition remains at the usual sh1,500.
Mwalye explained that all Vision Group regional newspapers – Bukedde, Orumuri, Etop, and Rupiny – will have an attractive jubilee package on Tuesday.
“We encourage Ugandans to attend to our other platforms because they will also have special jubilee packages,” he said.
