The celebrations held at St Leo’s College Kyegobe were running under the theme “30 Years of NRM’s Committed Stewardship: A Remarkable Legacy for Uganda”.
Meanwhile, as the ruling National Resistance Movement party celebrates its 30th anniversary, a section of citizens say they are dissatisfied with the work of the regime.
KFM spoke to some people who say there is little to appreciate.
The Democratic Party has faulted the NRM party for failing to fulfill the promises it made over the last 30 years.
Addressing journalists at the DP headquarters in Kampala, the party president Norbert Mao said President Museveni has failed to promote Democracy, Economic growth, Security and national unity.
Independent presidential candidate Prof Venasius Baryamureeba has promised better services to the people of Kampala if elected into power.
While campaigning in Gaba, Buziga and Makindye, in Kampala Baryamureeba said that the 30 years of NRM do not match the services offered in the health, education and Road sectors.
He says although there has been some development, a lot is still needed in terms of quality.
