10:00 AM: State House recycles Museveni Independence Day speeches

President Museveni’s 56th Independence anniversary speech that State House shared with the media shows the first four paragraphs are word-for-word a reproduction of what he spoke at last year’s celebrations.

The heavily replicated parts of the speech follow immediately after the preamble in the same order as in the October 9, 2017 Independence anniversary remarks and, counted together, run 167 words.

President Museveni, who was the chief guest, did not read his official speech during the national observance of the 56th fête in Kyotera District on Tuesday.  https://bit.ly/2IS7cuk
