On the 9th of May, the Tweeter General; Muhoozi Kainerugaba the commander of Uganda’s Land forces tweeting saying; “There was a terrible conspiracy amongst some people in the security services that wanted us to go to war with our brothers in Rwanda. Their biggest catastrophe is that President @KagutaMuseveni appointed me CLF. Once I discovered this conspiracy, I reported to the President.”
In response to the above tweet, general Mugisha Muntu made a tweet saying “Great. Use the same insight to ask the CIC to retire you from the Army as you pursue your political Agenda. It is legitimate. However, respect the officers & men in Uniform. NRA/ UPDF has been built through many sacrifices. Welcome to politics but GET OUT of uniform first.”
It was from this Tweet that Muhoozi responded in attack of not only Mugisha Muntu but the whole Alliance for national transiformation saying “General Greg, first of all, habari ya siku mingi sana? I hope you are well? Secondly, me, my father and practically everybody else in UPDF does not require your ‘Insight’ into anything. Please keep it for yourself and your small collapsing political party.”
In response, General Mugisha Muntu seemed not to have taken it personally. Rather is responded as follows, “I’m well thanks. I’m sure you are. I think if you were to soberly reread my initial remarks, you will find that I referred to your “insight”, not mine. Also, it is “do not need” not does not need. I wasn’t under the impression that my opinion was “required”. I gave it anyway.”
General Muhoozi Kainerugaba has been trending for the continuous celebration of his 48th birthday party amidst an inflation crisis that has not yet been addressed by the government. For the last few months, he has been making posts about the army, President Kagame of Rwanda, and his succession for the presidency in Uganda.
