President Yoweri Museveni launched the National Day of Physical activity on Sunday at Kololo Independence Grounds, a day that will be observed annually, in a drive to promote healthy living. 

This is an initiative by the Ministry of Health aimed at curbing the rising cases of non-communicable diseases like diabetes, cancer and high blood pressure.

The day that started as early as 6am with participants engaging in an exercise session, ended with a 10.5km walk around the city, where Museveni surprised many by walking for the entire route nonstop, while chatting to onlookers.

Other activities like blood donations, health consultancy, checkups and bicycle cycling were also carried out.

Here are the best shots from the event...
