President Yoweri Museveni has no scheduled function to attend in Kabale over the weekend, contrary to media reports, State House has clarified.

Reacting to a story published by The Observer Friday, March 21, 2014 under the headline “Museveni to attend Mbabazi function,” in which the paper claimed that the President has invited himself to a thanksgiving ceremony of the Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi’s father-in-law in Kabale, State House said the report wrong.

“This is to express our outer disappointment with the kind of reporting by your reporter who decided to indulge in hearsay and went ahead to publish claims he could not substantiate.

President Museveni is not in the habit of inviting himself to any ceremony. Even where he is invited, his protocol and diplomatic offices always schedule the President’s programmes which are then communicated to the administration of Statehouse for facilitation. There is no scheduled programme for the President in Kabale this weekend,” the statement read.
