NRM party’s Deputy Secretary General, Rose Namayanja Nsereko has likened President Yoweri Museveni to the biblical King Solomon as the party celebrated his birthday.
Museveni who is also the Chairperson of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) on Wednesday, made 77 years of age.
To commemorate the milestone, the party secretariat organized celebrations at the party headquarters at Kyadondo Road in Kampala.
Delivering her speech at the ceremony, Namayanja described the president as an iconic leader and a national liberator, whose deeds are testified to and witnessed globally.
Likening Museveni to King Solomon, who instead of asking God for riches asked for wisdom, Namayanja said that God granted wisdom to the president which has enabled him to take the country this far.
“I want to thank God who granted wisdom to our president to diagnose the problems of the country and provide the best prescription that has brought us this far. As the country’s vision bearer, Ugandans should be so proud to have him as their president,” Namayanja said.
She applauded Museveni for championing leadership and stable growth for 35 years now, the success she attributed to the president’s brand character of patience.
The party national treasurer Amb. Barbara Nekesa Oundo also congratulated Museveni for making 77 years of youthfulness and promised to support him in steering the development of the country.
“As our President marks 77 years of his youthfulness, we young people who have now crossed to the bracket of senior youth people but lower division, are more than willing to lend a hand to the vision of our President,” Nekesa said amidst chants and ululations from the celebrants.
Also in attendance was the director for mobilization, cadre identification and recruitment Rosemary Sseninde who thanked Museveni for prioritizing women empowerment.
“What we the women are and what we have achieved is because of President Museveni. This was not possible without him,” Sseninde said referring to the women-dominated high-table.
