Uganda's President, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, has announced that, beginning next year, February 16 would be a new annual non-working public holiday in Uganda, in honour of Archbishop Janani Luwum who was killed on February 16, 1977, during Idi Amin's rule.

The aforementioned announcement that, beginning next year, February 16 would be a new annual non-working public holiday in Uganda, remains to be confirmed, as that statement was made (literally) in the heat of the moment at a wreath-laying ceremony on the grave of Archbishop Janani Luwum in Mucwini, Kitgum District, earlier today.

The Ugandan government is, however, not know for intemperate promises of new annual public holidays in Uganda.
