President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is to hold this year’s State of the Nation Address on Thursday June 4th, 2020.
According to our Spies at State House, unlike previous addresses at which President Museveni directly addressed Parliament, this year’s State of the Nation Address will be held at Kololo Independence grounds and only a few people will attend physically, although it will be televised on local TV stations and broadcast on all FM radio stations.
“Due to the COVID-19 situation and for observance of the social distancing measures, the function will be held at the Kololo Independence Grounds. Article 95(2) of the Constitution states that, ‘a session of Parliament shall be held at such a place within Uganda and shall commence at such a time as the Speaker may, by proclamation, appoint’,” Parliament said in a statement.
The president will gave accountability on particular government commitments and appraise the country of the plans and strategies for the next twelve months. He will also outline bills that will come to parliament. This in fulfillment of the constitutional requirement under Article101 (1) of the Constitution of the Republic of Uganda.
President Museveni reaffirmed the development on Monday night during the 15th National Address on COVID-19, when he said that he will explain to Parliament some matters concerning the COVID-19 lockdown on Thursday during his State of the Nation Address.
