The distinguished men and officers of the armed forces have performed an elaborate and excellent parade, befitting a national jubilee.
They were accompanied by many organizations notably, the Indian community and wives of prison officers who displayed the Kiprotich poster.
Certainly the goose match drew the wildest cheers but the highlight was the two surviving veterans of the Second World War probably in their 80s, they braved the sun undeterred by age.
To showcase advancement, was the elaborate industrial and security display.
The economic highlights were the locally made Kira car, showcased by Makerere University, School of Technology and Gayaza Electronics who now make fridges and other electronics.
Other economic displays included Roofings Ltd, makers of roofing material, Nytil Ltd, and Samona makers of beauty products among others.
The greatest sensation was the jet fighters as they sommersaulted in the air emitting vapour in the colours of the national flag. This drove the boys and men crazy.
Together with the vehicle-sized bullets showcased by Luwero Industries, this spoke of the military might of our 50 year-old nation.
