Uganda is a land of both martyrs and Heroes – President Museveni

Museveni addressing the nation on Heroes Day
As Uganda marked the 35th Heroes’ Day Commemoration, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni told the grandchildren and whoever plans to deal with Uganda to know that it is a land of both Martyrs and heroes.
In his speech, he stressed that the martyrs lost their lives without putting up resistance whereas the heroes staged a fight thus warning people who are new to the country to know that they should carry the mentality of being both brave and ready for any action that they would face.
“The Bazukulu (grandchildren) and people who have just come to the country should know that Uganda is a land of both martyrs and Heroes. The Uganda martyrs did not put up resistance. However, those who died as heroes put up resistance; you beat me I beat you. When dealing with Uganda, you should know those two,” President Museveni
The Heroes Day celebrations were celebrated from the Mpenja Church of Uganda Primary School playground in Gomba in honor of all those who sacrificed themselves to better the lives of Ugandans.
