PHOTOS: Museveni, Janet Host Gen. Kainerugaba’s 50th Birthday Dinner

President Yoweri Museveni and First Lady Mama Janet hosted a dinner on Sunday evening, April 28 to celebrate the 50th birthday of the Chief of Defence Forces Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba.

During the event, which was attended by relatives, friends, and senior government leaders — Janet Museveni gifted the CDF with 100 cows from her herd.

Earlier in the week, the CDF celebrated his birthday with tree planting and the inauguration of a Neonatal Unit for preterm babies.

50 trees were planted at Luttamaguzi Barracks in Kigungu, Entebbe.

To plant the trees, Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba was accompanied by his wife, Charlotte Nankunda, and their youngest daughter.

Soldiers from the Special Forces Command (SFC) were also present.

They then inaugurated the Neonatal Special Care Unit at the Dr. Ronald Bata Memorial Hospital in Entebbe, providing essential care for preterm babies.

As a gesture of support, Mama kits were donated to new mothers at the hospital. On social media, thousands of well-wishers sent birthday greetings to the CDF, and many signing boards to convey their love and best wishes.

In response to the messages, the CDF expressed his gratitude on X: “I want to thank the thousands of people from Uganda and beyond who sent me birthday wishes. Your love and support mean a lot to me.”

“Today (Wednesday), Charlotte, our youngest daughter, and I planted 50 trees with soldiers of the SC.

“It is said that the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, but the second best time is today. Let us all do our part in protecting the environment by fighting deforestation.

“We also inaugurated the Neonatal Special Care Unit at Dr. Ronald Bata Memorial Hospital in Entebbe Barracks.

“This hospital has transformed from a Medical Reception Centre to a fully operational General Military Hospital over the past 11 years. Thank you all once again.”

Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba became the CDF in March.
