✳ Explains demotion of Muhoozi from UPDF Command
✳ Justifies promotion of son to General in the army
Entebbe, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | “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 the tweets sent by General Muhoozi,” is the message President Yoweri Museveni has just tweeted, hours after demoting his son from the command of the UPDF land forces.
Dear Ugandans, the brotherly People of Kenya and all East Africans. I greet all of you. Again, I hail the peaceful elections that took place in Kenya recently where H.E. William Ruto emerged winner. I, again, congratulate him on that victory. 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.
The only available legitimate forum is the Peer Review Mechanism of the African Union or confidential interactions among us or EAC and AU fora –not public comments.
Why, then, promotehim to full General after these comments? This is because this mistake is one aspect where he has acted negatively as a Public officer.
There are, however, many other positive contributions the General has made and can still make. This is a time-tested formula –discourage the negative and encourage the positive. Very sorry, ndugu zetu Wakenya. Also sorry to the Ugandans who could have been annoyed by one of their officials meddling in the affairs of brother Kenya.
I know for a fact that General Muhoozi is a passionate Pan-Africanist. However, the correct method for Pan-Africanists is confidential interactions or using the available fora (EAC and AU), especially if you are a Public officer. I have conveyed all those views confidentially to H.E. Ruto, the President of Kenya.
Many wondered why Mwenda, a seemingly intelligent man, risked his entire business reputation by joining the Project.
Mwenda – Intelligent!!! Give us a break. He is a loud-mouthed opportunist.
He is part of the project – His sister is a Minister of State ; His brother is now the 3rd most powerful officer in the army and Mwenda is the chief M7 propagandist. Whole family is in the corruption trough !!!!
Ruto has rigged the election in Kenya. Odinga won the election that Ruto stole.
Ruto rigged the election after conniving with IEBC by paying the chairman who auctioned him the results. When Odinga tried to take the evidence to Supreme Court it was dismissed as “hot air.” Ruto’s lawyer claimed there was peace and people have moved on. But the people are hurting and very angry. Ruto’s bubble will soon burst. Expect a revolution. Muhoozi has already enlightened Kenyans on revolution, M7’s apology notwithstanding. Why did M7 help Ruto to rig Odinga out? What a shame!
