The Parliament of Uganda was at the weekend closed for the shooting of the much anticipated movie, ‘27 Guns’ directed by the President Museveni’s first daughter, Ms Natasha Museveni Karugire.
The movie is about the 1986 NRA liberation war that brought the ruling party to power.
In the movie, Ms Diana Museveni Kamuntu, the last born of the first family, plays the role of their mother, Janet Museveni, and a one Arnold Mubangizi, a former member of Kigezi Kinimba Actors, acts as President Museveni.
Natasha partly picked the story idea from her father’s book, Sowing the Mustard Seed. The movie is co-directed by Sharpe Sewali, a former member of First Love, a gospel singing group, who also penned the screen play of the movie.
The movie was set to be released on January 26 but due to unexplainable reasons, it will be out in two months’ time, according to reliable sources.
Esteri Akandwanaho, daughter to Museveni’s brother and cousin to Natasha, is handling production of the movie under Isaiah 60 Production House, which the two launched early this year.
This will be Natasha’s first project having been in the fashion industry for over a decade now under her House of Kaine Label. The movie is about the liberation war.
