President Museveni directs Muhoozi to go slow on his tweeting activity


The Uganda’s President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has instructed Lt Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba, the commander of Land Forces in UPDF to go slow on his tweeting activity lest it will cause a diplomatic row between Uganda and other countries.

President Museveni’s comment comes following the series of tweets from the first son about various sensitive matters local and international over the last couple of days.

Muhoozi’s tweets have left the public bewildered and some wondering whether Kainerugaba is in charge of his twitter handle.

Some of Muhoozi’s defenders like Agriculture minister Frank Tumwebaze have urged the public not to take the tweets seriously because they are made in jest.

Yet jokes or not, the tweets have tickled many people the wrong away, especially the Kenyans.

Today morning, Uganda’s ambassador to Nairobi, Hassan Galiwango was reportedly summoned to a meeting by Kenya’s Foreign Affairs minister elect Alfred Mutua, over several issues including Muhoozi’s tweets, according to sources.

He however insisted in another follow up tweet that he had told his father that “no amount of threats will stop us from that goal” of ensuring that east Africa becomes one country.

It would not be the first time Museveni has tried to halt Muhoozi’s twitter activities having done so early this year.
