Kizza Besigye: Why Museveni’s untamed son is allowed to put out wild tweets
Uganda’s opposition leader Kizza Besigye has opined that General Muhoozi Kainerugaba is working with his father, President Yoweri Museveni, hence the Twitter outbursts.
Speaking during an interview with NBS Uganda, Besigye shared that if the two were not working together then Muhoozi would have been silenced.
“I believe that Gen. Muhoozi is working with his father. If he wasn’t, he would have been shut down,” he said.
‘Controversy’ should be Muhoozi’s middle name, he is known to speak his mind regardless. President Museveni’s wild son in recent times shared his sentiments touching on various issues on his favourite communication tool, Twitter.
Muhoozi spewed threats on journalists, people attacking police officers and his father’s political outfit the National Resistance Movement (NRM).
In his series of Twitter outbursts, Muhoozi said, “Surrender! That is the only alternative when they face the son of Museveni! The grandson of Kaguta and the bloodline of Jesus Christ! I have warned them enough. Nobody plays in my country without my permission!!”

After his intimidation tweets, he would then share Bible verses and scriptures.
Not done yet with his outbursts, he tweeted that he has three heroes; God through Jesus Christ, his father and Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame.
Two months ago, the untamed Muhoozi shared that he would only need two weeks for his army and him to capture Nairobi then satirically go on and enquired from his fans where they would suggest he lives after the ‘heroic act.’
This phase of his wildness began when he expressed disappointment with his ‘big brother’ retired President Uhuru Kenyatta for not seeking a third term in office saying he would have easily won.
Though this is against the constitution, Muhoozi suggested that Mr Kenyatta would have changed the rule of law allowing him to seek re-election urging him to borrow a page from President Museveni’s constitution change book.
The latter has benefitted twice with him being the oldest and longest-serving President in East Africa.
