Uganda's Minister of the Presidency, Frank Tumwebaze, has issued a statement ruling-out speculation that Wednesday, March 6, 2013, would be declared a one-off non-working public holiday in Uganda.

The aforementioned rumours had been fueled by the fact that on Wednesday, March 6, 2013, is the date of the upcoming funeral of First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for East African Community Affairs, Eriya Kategeya.

Speaking as both Minister of the Presidency and the chairman of the burial committee, Frank Tumwebaze, stated that "An official burial doesn't mean that a public holiday will be observed".
