Uganda celebrates Liberation Day to remember, when the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) came into power after a successful guerilla struggle led by Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni.

On January 25, 1986, the National Resistance Army (NRA), under the wing of the political National Resistance Movement (NRM), ousted a government that represented years of corruption, civil rights offenses, and alleged voter fraud. The movement, led by Yoweri Musevini, promised “a fundamental change in the politics” of Uganda. The country now commemorates the event every year as NRM Liberation Day, though not without its detractors. The celebration of the NRA/NRM’s liberation of Uganda has come under scrutiny the last few years. Many of Uganda’s citizens feel the NRM’s promises of “fundamental change” seem to have been lost in recent years. The Democratic Party (DP) has been most vocal about the boycott of NRM Liberation Day celebrations over the last three years, though the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) has also chided the celebrations. “The major cause of the liberation war was the injustice of vote rigging, but vice has become entrenched in the system,” said FDC deputy publicist and acting administrator, Boniface Toterebuka during the 2009 NRM Liberation Day. “Corruption has also been institutionalized. We should instead be mourning for thousands of lives that were lost in several years of war to satisfy the needs of selfish individuals.”
