Director of Communication at Parliament, Chris Obore.

Roads leading to and around the parliamentary premises have been on cordoned off to the public for three days due to a film about President Yoweri Museveni’s struggle that is being produced.

The film, ‘27 Guns’ is being shot by a local production company, ‘Isaiah 60’, that is jointly owned by First Daughter Natasha Karugire, and her cousin sister Esteri Akandwanaho, a daughter to General Salim Saleh, President Museveni’s brother.

Isaiah 60 was recently launched at Kololo  by Prime Minister Dr Ruhakana Rugunda and, according to a statement, the company’s two partners Karugire and Akandwanaho were driven by a desire to take part in the unfolding African narrative and thus identity.
