President Mnangagwa is expected to grace Uganda’s 57th Independence anniversary celebrations, scheduled to take place in Sironko District today (Wednesday). The Zimbabwe leader was received by his host at State House, Entebbe on Tuesday evening. He was treated to a 21-gun salute among other receiving ceremonies.
