President Yoweri Museveni’s outspoken son Muhoozi Kainerugaba has revived his onslaught on Kenya.
Muhoozi, a top member of the Ugandan army, insisted that Kenya cannot survive without her neighbour Uganda.
As a result, the 48-year-old said in honour of the pivotal role Uganda plays to Kenya, it should rename Nairobi’s Westlands to Kololo.
“I feel sorry for my beloved 3rd Country…Kenya. Kenya cannot survive without us, Ugandans. Therefore, I forgive them all. Rename Westlands, where we lived, ‘Kololo’. In honour of Uganda,” said Mohoozi.
Muhoozi’s remarks come a few months after threatening to launch a military invasion to capture Nairobi. He claimed the invasion would take a minimum of two weeks.
“It wouldn’t take us, my army and me, 2 weeks to capture Nairobi,” Muhoozi said.
The tweet irked Kenyans, who took to the same platform to fume venom.
Owing to the diplomatic tension between Kampala and Nairobi that the tweet caused, Museveni came out to issue a statement.
The president reprimanded his son for the disorderly misconduct.
“Dear Ugandans, the brotherly people of Kenya and all East Africans. I greet all of you…I ask our Kenyan brothers and sisters to forgive us for tweets sent by General Muhoozi, former Commander of Land Forces here, regarding the election matters in that great country. It is not correct for public officers, be they civilian or military, to comment or interfere in any way in the internal affairs of brother countries. Very sorry, ndugu zetu wakenya,” said Museveni.
In the course of the undiplomatic tweets, Muhoozi was promoted to a full General something that also left many wondering whether Museveni was trying to appreciate him for the terrible tweets.
