Museveni in Mityana for Women's Day celebrations

Celebrations to commemorate the International Women's Day are underway in Mityana District.
As the chief guest, President Museveni in his speech says women are the base of society but for some unknown reasons, the old societies decided to marginalize and suppress them.
“But the NRM didn't agree with this. We started recruiting them in 1979, our associates didn't agree with our decision, we somehow ignored them then later in 1986. We again recruited them and kept them because we were totally in charge,” says Museveni.
Also in attendance for the Women's Day celebrations is the Speaker of Parliament Hon Rebecca Kadaga, Prime Minister Rt Hon Dr Ruhakana Rugunda and the Minister of Gender, Labour and Social Development Janat Mukwaya
