128th Uganda Martyrs Celebration

Never witnessed a gathering of about 2000 people in my life, the Uganda Martyrs preparation and celebration was gigantic and enormous. Dissimilar people from diverse parts of the country as well as across boarders walking stretched distances both young, old and teens. 3rd June 2017 was a significant and productive day for those that attended the celebrations remembering the killing of the Uganda Martyrs by Kabaka Mwanga in the 19’s. #NBSNamugongo #Stuart tibs
