The town of Namugongo, north-east of Uganda’s capital, Kampala, is witnessing an unusual sight today.
For decades every 3 June, hundreds of thousands of worshippers have visited a shrine in the town to honour the Christian martyrs killed for their faith by the King of Buganda between 1885 – 1887.
The event which attracts faithfuls from the region and beyond has been banned this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
President Yoweri Museveni has shared a video honouring the martyrs and urged the faithful to continue observing measures to curb the spread of the virus.
