However, prior to setting off, Museveni had made a pilgrimage during which he visited monuments of the Great Chinese leader Mao Zedong.

The pilgrimage began at my residence, the Rongyuan Hotel, which was Chairman Mao’s work station while he was in Changsha, Hunan. In Shaoshan, I visited the Mao Zedong Statute Square, paying my respects before taking a tour of the Mao Zedong Memorial Hall that showcases his life and times. I also toured the humble home in which Mao was raised and later the Orange Island where a large statute of Chairman Mao as a young man stands majestically in the sky.”
