Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni terminated his Son’s military job as commander of the country’s infantry forces on Tuesday after the son tweeted an unjustifiable threats to invade the capital of neighboring Kenya, attracting broad concern from East Africa.
Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba, named ‘the tweeting general’ of Uganda, as of late had ignited outrage among certain Ugandans who see his regular posts on Twitter as provocative and at times even hazardous.
“It wouldn’t take us, my army and me, 2 weeks to capture Nairobi,” he tweeted Monday.”
He has tweeted on the side of the Tigray rebels battling Ethiopian government troops. He’s voiced support for fierce agitators fighting in eastern Congo. He said all Africans support Russia in its conflict in Ukraine. Strangely, he as of late said he was offering 100 long-horned steers — evidently as pride price — for Italy’s incoming female top state leader (Prime Minister).[irp]
A faction of Kainerugaba’s allies say his tweets are endeavors at humor and ought not be viewed in a serious way. Be that as it may, numerous others see a more serious issue. As a military official, he is unavoidably banished from participating in sectarian governmental issues and a few Ugandans bring up that some other officer tweeting like Kainerugaba would be court-martialed.
