The daughters of Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni are set to release a movie of his life in the bush.
Natasha Karugire, Diana Kamuntu and cousin, Esteri Akandwanaho, who act in movie dubbed M-27 guns, want to retell the National Resistant Army (NRA) bush war which brought Mr Museveni to power in 1986 following the overthrow of then President Milton Obote.
The film was originally scheduled for release today during Uganda’s Liberation Day – which marks their father’s rise to power – but its launch has been postponed by two months.
“We still have a couple of months, approximately two, to have the movie ready but before that, we are not be able to release any information to the media,” Marcella Kirekye, spokesperson of the Isaiah 60 Productions’ told a local tabloid.
According to reports, it is a story by Natasha got from the president’s book, “Sowing The Mustard.” She is the director assisted by Sharpe Sewali. It tells the story of the NRA revolution (1981 – 86) led by President Museveni to free Uganda from dictatorial governments.
