KOT, I forgive you all for the insults you have hurled against me says Museveni son

KOT, I forgive you all for the insults you have hurled against me – Museveni’s son

Uganda President Yoweri Museveni’s son has been forced to apologize to Kenyans on Twitter, popularly known as KOT, after putting out a series of controversial tweets on his plans to attack and take over Nairobi.

On Monday, Lieutenant General Muhoozi Kainerugaba went on a Twitter meltdown, warning that he would only need two weeks with his army to capture Nairobi.

KOT who have over the past decade built a reputation as bulldogs did not take it lightly.

The keyboard warriors were ferocious after the general mocked them, but they were also sharp and fierce with their opinions and ensured the voice of Kenyans was heard loud and clear.

“KOT, I forgive you all for the insults you have hurled against me. Please let’s work together to make East Africa great!!!” he tweeted.

This was his last tweet late at night after Muhoozi, who serves as the commander of the Uganda People Defence Forces (UPDF) posted a series of controversial tweets about Kenya, Uganda’s neighbour to the East.

He started by blaming retired President Uhuru Kenyatta, whom he refers to as his “big brother”, for not contesting for a third term in the August 2022 polls, adding the retired president could have easily won the election.

He then went on and said that he needs a fortnight to topple President Ruto’s government.

“It wouldn’t take us, my army and me, 2 weeks to capture Nairobi,” he tweeted.

KOT on the other side were not happy about what he said with the tweets eliciting mixed reactions from Kenyans who opted to square it out with the General.

“I would never beat up the Kenyan army because my father told me never to attempt it! So our people in Kenya should relax!” he tweeted again.

It was not immediately clear whether or not he was in charge of his Twitter account.

Muhoozi announced his retirement from the army after 28 years. Rumour has it that he is being groomed to take over from his father.

Muhoozi has also belittled opposition leader Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine, saying he will never rule Uganda.

“Kabobi should know that we will never allow him to be President of this country!” wrote Muhoozi.

The controversial Muhoozi has emerged as a favourite to succeed his father if and when he chooses to retire.

Bobi Wine contested against Museveni in 2021 and emerged second.

He challenged the results at the Supreme Court but later withdrew the case and has remained a strong critic of the President, who shot his way into State House in 1986.
