Done Deal: President Museveni Sworn In For His 6th Term In Office

The President of the republic of Uganda Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has been sworn in for his 6th term of office after being re-elected in the recently concluded 2021 January elections.
President Museveni was declared by the Electoral Commission as the winner of the January 14 elections having defeated 10 other candidates with 58 percent of all valid votes cast. If he completes his term in 2026, Museveni will have collectively ruled Uganda for 40 years.

“I … do swear … that I will always truly and diligently serve the people of the Republic of Uganda,” Museveni said with his hand on a Bible, similar to one he first held as he was being sworn in as president in 1986 after his National Resistance Army had overthrown the military government of Gen. Tito Okello Lutwa.

He was later handed the instruments of power including Constitution, the national flag, the presidential standard flag, the national anthem, the National Court of Arms and the public seal from the Chief Justice.

Museveni later received the instruments of national defence including the shield and the sword from the Chief of Defence Forces, Gen David Muhoozi.

As per the Ugandan constitution, the president is also a Commander of all Armed Forces (CiC), as a result therefore, Museveni received the instruments of national defense including the shield and the sword from the Chief of Defense Forces, Gen David Muhoozi before receiving a 21-gun salute.

Several African presidents including Samia Suluhu Hassan have already arrived for the function. Also invited to attend the ceremony from within the country include all former presidential candidates, ministers and ministers of state, all MPs-elect, members of the Central Executive Committee, some religious and cultural leaders, 17 delegates from each district, members of the East African Legislative Assembly and some members of the business community.
