President Museveni was on Friday night thrilled by the musical performance exhibited by a local artist Catherine Kusasira’s show at Serena hotel in Kampala.

During the show Museveni’s  soft spot and love for local music came out perfectly well as got out of his seat on a couple of occasions to display his dancing skills that left revelers in shock.

Twice during the show, the President stood up from his seat and wiggled his waist in a fully packed Victoria Hall at Kampala Serena Hotel in Kampala. His unique dancing strokes drew wild cheers from the audience among them Kusasira’s great friend and funs including the tycoon Rajiv Ruparelia, parliamentarians and the business community who loves supporting to local music.

As if that was not enough, after watching Kusasira’s queen dancers performing on the stage, president Museveni weighed in jokingly promising to teach them how to dance in a cooler style.

And when Kusasira pulled some rare dancing strokes, she swept the President off his feet again before he made his way to the stage twice to pass on a token of appreciation.

For musicians, Museveni had two key messages: “use the current wave of freedom in Uganda to develop your talents and mind about the message you blend in your music such that it does not disrupt the peace Ugandans are enjoying now.”

Museveni also spoke about the current wave of murders in the country, corruption and the practice of evicting tenants all of which he vowed to tackle and defeat.
