Uganda's Second Deputy Prime Minister, Kirunda Kivejinja, has announced that the government of Uganda had pledged to declare "Father's Day", marked in Uganda annually on June 21st, as a new annual non-working public holiday in Uganda.

Though the aforementioned announced promise by Uganda's Second Deputy Prime Minister, Kirunda Kivejinja, of a new "Father's Day" annual non-working public holiday in Uganda, was made during a meeting organized by Men's Protection Against Domestic Violence in Kampala, traditionally the Ugandan government is not know for intemperate promises of new annual public holidays in Uganda.

Most recently (16-Feb-2015), Uganda's then President, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, had announced that beginning the following 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 topic seemed to disappear from the news for almost a year, but then, just in time (09-Feb-2016), Uganda's First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Public Service, announced that Tuesday, February 16, 2016, would be a non-working public holiday in Uganda, in honour of Archbishop Janani Luwum, as announced the year before.
