A video is circulating online which shows President Yoweri Museveni’s laps serving as a chair for a woman who came out of nowhere, and pushed past crowds and mean looking presidential guards to make her way onto Museveni’s laps.
In the video, the woman during a public function tried to reach for the president but security men attempted to disrupt her from meeting the president in person.
Defiantly, she pushed harder, fell on the floor and was able to draw the attention of the long-serving president.
The president then ordered his security team to allow her come forward. Overwhelmingly happy, she walked straight to meet the president, throwing several salutes as she walked towards him before finally sitting on his lap.
As if that was not enough, she knelt before the president in a way that seemed like she was about to receive a fatherly advice, danced around and then shook Museveni’s hands.

The incumbent president of Uganda, President Yoweri Museveni, who is ready to be sworn in on 12 May, may witness another form of this woman’s drama though in a different way as key opposition and his supporters plan to hit the street the same day in protest.
President Yoweri Museveni contested to lengthen his 30-year leadership in Uganda’s latest elections and official results showed he took a visible lead in the elections, gaining about 60% of the entire votes from over 80% of the ballots counted.
Eminent contender, Kizza Besigye, who was kept under house arrest since the commencement of election, gathered on 34%.
Some international and some local bodies also slammed the election, saying it was detracted by occasional violence and opposition allegations of some electoral double-dealings.
Key opponent, Mr Besigye, who was seized multiple times by the police on suspicion that he was scheming to publish his own results, infringing electoral laws, pushed determinedly to get the result nullified.
Some oppositions later joined him in the challenge, heading to the court to have the result of the election cancelled. But court dismissed the case, citing insubstantial proof to back the claims.
Mr Besigye said his protest allegedly coming up the same day of the inanguration is to distract the ceremony. Museveni has as a result, deployed police in large number within the country’s capital in anticipation of the protest.
On the contrary, president Yoweri Museveni sent out invitations to all candidates who stood against him in the recent election to be present at the swearing in for his fifth term coming up next week.
He also invited twelve heads of states and five prime ministers with officials from the Chinese Communist Party and the Sudanese People’s Liberation
