Plans to have the photo of President Yoweri Museveni appear on Ugandan legal tender have commenced with a request to the Ministry of Justice and Constitutional Affairs for a proposed amendment.

The plans were kickstarted by one Majembere Ivan Semakula who identifies himself as a National Resistance Movement Activist and President Museveni’s attack lion.

In a letter to the Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs, and copied to the Bank of Uganda, Parliament of Uganda as well as the Attorney General, Majambere notes that it is high time the country appreciated Museveni for his wonderful service with his portrait splashed on Ugandan currency.

He notes that this should only be possible if there is an amendment to Article 21 of the Bank of Uganda 2000 Act which prohibits any design or portrait of a living person or any political symbol on its bank note.
