President Yoweri Museveni has launched the 2nd edition of his book “Sowing The Mustard Seed”. He said, the new edition was necessitated by the need to tell a clearer story in good English.
“The English people are writing in Uganda today is terrible. That’s why I decided to write the second edition,” Museveni joked at the launch at Serena Sunday morning.
He said the first edition had grammatical mistakes, and therefore he had “instructed the editors not to edit the second edition.”
“About 3 years ago, when I met Gen. Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of USA, he told me he had read my book. I decided to re-write it personally so that I tell a clear story,” he explained.
He decided not not talk about the National Resistance Army NRA struggle as narrated in his book at the launch and instead encouraged Ugandans to read the book.
He thanked the people of Uganda and people of Africa “because they managed to stand up and fight the unnecessary killings.”
“I want to thank Maama Janet because she was always there for our family as I was fighting for the country,” he concluded.
Prime Minister Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda, speaking on behalf of NRM historicals, described Museveni as “an amazingly humble and patient man.”
“I have not doubt there has been a fundamental change in Uganda under Museveni.”
Guests included First Lady Janet Museveni, Archbishop Stanley Ntangali, Former Prime Minister A Nsibambi and Chief Justice B Katurebe.
