Official Tarehe Sita celebrations are underway in Arua district with President Museveni presiding over the events which are being reflected in many parts of the country.

Tarehe Sita Day is in remembrance of the first attack on February 6, 1981 that launched President Yoweri Museveni’s guerrilla war.

The theme for the celebrations is: “The Vanguard of National Transformation & in Solidarity for Regional Peace & Integration”. It marks the 32nd anniversary of the founding of The Uganda Peoples’ Defense forces (UPDF).

The day is marked with cleaning campaigns, immunisation drives and parades.

Meanwhile, one of the people who were part of the group that took part in that attack, Rtd. Col Dr. Kizza Besigye is asking the UPDF return to the original plan of protecting citizens and their property rather than work to fulfill desires of some individuals.

Col. Besigye joins other opposition members that have boycotted the events on reasons that the army has unleashed lethal force and brutalized peaceful demonstrators; detained, tortured and or killed opposition activists over the past years.
