In a video seen by TUKO.co.ke, the president appeared calm although he paused his speech and asked his guards what caused the little commotion.

Museveni seems to have a connection with snakes or maybe it is because the former rebel leader spent his years fighting the government from the bush.

For instance, in 2016 police officers guarding Museveni’s rural home were forced to shoot dead a giant python that sneaked into his farm.

According to a police officer, the snake which weighed 80 kg and 20 feet in length had entered Museveni’s farm in Kisozi, Gomba District planning to attack his cattle.

The officer said they tried to capture the snake but it turned violent forcing them to shoot it three times killing it.
