ON Friday May 1, 2009 I received a telephone call from one of my aunts saying I was chosen to give our President, Yoweri Museveni, flowers on Sunday May 3. Uganda Journalists Association was hosting the president for dinner at Imperial Royale Hotel.

ON Friday May 1, 2009 I received a telephone call from one of my aunts saying I was chosen to give our President, Yoweri Museveni, flowers on Sunday May 3. Uganda Journalists Association was hosting the president for dinner at Imperial Royale Hotel.

I was excited and I could not wait for that day. By that time, grandpa, Aunt Hilda and my cousin Teddy were at home and every minute, I showed them how I would present the flowers to the President.

Mummy ordered for me a new dress, stockings and shoes. I was dying to see them. My cousin Eliza helped mummy to find them.

On Saturday Eliza and Rita brought the white and red dress, stockings and shoes. I couldn’t wait to put on that dress because it was very beautiful. I liked it.

On Sunday morning I was very happy because the day had finally come. I kept jumping on and off my bed waiting for evening to come.

At round 2:30pm, mummy and I went to the salon to do my hair. The hair dresser styled my hair and we returned home to prepare for the evening. Everyone at home said I was smart.

I put on my new dress and went with mummy to Imperial Royale Hotel where we met Miss Kizza Kimbugwe. Kizza took us to our seats.

By the way, I have been on Kizza’s radio programme on Sundays. Kizza works for Vision Voice FM. After some minutes, Kizza called me and gave me the flowers which I gave to the President. As I was walking, I felt shy and excited at the same time. In my heart I was saying; “Yes, the day has finally come. I am going to meet the president face to face.”

When I gave the president the flowers, he asked me my names, what my parents’ names are, which class I am in and the school I go to. I was very excited and felt very lucky to be the one to give our president flowers.

All my friends now admire me and, by the way, I am looking forward to another day when I will do the same.

God bless you.
