It was a few minutes past 3pm when Gen Museveni completed his speech to the more than 800 youth leaders who converged at Speke Resort Munyonyo for the 4th African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) Youth Symposium.

The youth leaders came from all over the African continent (from the 54 countries) and the organization of the huge event was spearheaded by the Office of the Prime Minister. As soon as Gen Museveni completed his speech, in which he implored the young people to always distinguish between ideology (appropriate understanding of things) and biology (their age), Youth & Children Affairs Minister Sarah Mateke (who was co-emceeing) stepped forward and signaled the AU Youth Envoy to step forward and say something.

Before the AU envoy would begin her speech, the snake furiously emerged from wherever it had been hiding and began directing its unexplained anger at President Museveni who pensively looked on as the organizers struggled to pacify the event by getting the snake out of the way.

On being overwhelmed and frustrated in its endeavor to advance towards where Gen Museveni was in order to assault him, the fuming snake started running around the different tents and in the process disrupting many people as the young people screamed on top of their voices.

After surviving the snake incident, Gen Museveni led his Ministers in signing up to a dummy that symbolized Uganda’s commitment and version of the AU’s “1m next level initiative” after which he (seemingly shaken) stormed out of the event leaving behind Premier Robinah Nabanja to lead the rest of the officials into the group photo session.

The snake-related chaos prompted some members of the President’s security detail to reflect on the extent to which the Munyonyo Resort can continue to be considered safe to host such a high profile events.
