Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | Rosemary Nansubuga Sseninde, the National Resistance Movement-NRM National mobilizer has asked Gen. Muhoozi Kenerubaga to refrain from further making political comments that are likely to hurt the government and the ruling NRM party.
According to Sseninde, whereas the general has the freedom of expression and speech he must be conscious not to make comments that may destabilize the general political environment of the country and her neighbors. Muhoozi,48, has continued stirring controversy with his comments including undiplomatic outbursts and picking holes in the agenda of the ruling party on Twitter.
While meeting NRM party members and leaders in Bunyanbagu district on Friday, Sseninde says the party is internally concerned that the ongoing discussions are likely to divide her members and affect their future political goals. She said that Muhoozi as a serving military officer is expected to act as provided for under the national law.
Sseninde asked NRM members to desist from early politicking, arguing that the party has the key mandate to deliver on its manifesto this term.
The Bunyangabu District Member of parliament, Davis Kamukama says there is a need for president, Yoweri Museveni to have a fatherly talk with his son. About two months ago, Museveni told NBS Television in an interview that he had asked Muhoozi to stay away from making political statements that are likely to compromise Uganda’s relationship with her neighbors. This came after Muhoozi said it would his arm two weeks to overrun Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, which triggered angry reactions among Kenyans.
