I took this picture, during the 25th anniversary of the liberation of Uganda. It was held in the city of Masaka, and the president Yoweri Museveni was present. This picture shows the police force doing a parade for the president. The city of Masaka, is known for NOT supporting the president, so strategically it was a good place to show of the forces, to avoid riots when the election began. Museveni won by the way. In power for 25 years now, and will be for the next five as well.
