Museveni made the rare spectacle while on his way back to State House, Kampala, after attending the World Population Day celebrations in Isingiro, western Uganda.

He stopped over at Kyeirumba village for the call that lasted 30 minutes and later greeted the locals who had mulled nearby.

Ugandan government spokesman Ofwono Opondo shared the images, reminiscent of Museveni’s days as guerrilla fighter, but gave no information on the person who was on the other end of the phone call.

Museveni’s press secretary Lindah Nabusayi also shared a series of photos on her Twitter account of Museveni’s whistle tour in Isingiro district.
