President Yoweri Museveni will tomorrow attend a thanksgiving ceremony for Justice and Constitutional Affairs Minister, Maj. Gen. Kahinda Otafiire.
The ceremony that is slated to take place at Gen. Otafiire’s country home at Kasheshero in Mitooma district will be presided over by the religious leader from Mbarara Archdiocese and West Ankole Diocese. EagleOnline has learnt that community invited the President to officiate at the function. Otafiire who is not known to be a committed religious person is celebrating his political journey since the FRONASA times.
Gen. Otafiire is among the few remaining Front for National Salvation (FRONASA) fighters still alive and President Museveni will attend as both the president and longtime comrade to Otafiire.
Otafiire whose FRONASA number is R0 014 and later became the chief political commissar throughout the five-year bush war has been instrumental in the current establishment. He has held different high government dockets. Although he lost in the National Resistance Movement (NRM) party internal elections and later on contested as independent for Ruhinda South constituency but lost to Donozio Kahonda, was reappointed by President Museveni as Justice and Constitutional Affairs Minister.
