Muhoozi opens up to working relationship with Kizza Besigye
Uganda’s President, Yoweri Museveni’s son, has opened up to working on a relationship with opposition leader Kizza Besigye.
This is although he is his father’s most significant political enemy.
Muhoozi also did not shy away from showing disdain for Bobi Wine, calling him Kabobi.
In a tweet, where he shared a photo of Besigye and Bobi Wine, Muhoozi said, “Personally, I like @kizzabesigye1. He is an elder and we can learn a few things from him. But Kabobi? Hapana!”

With Muhoozi and Wine’s relationship being rusty, the two have consistently called each other out.
While Wine claims that the President’s son is out of touch with the pains of Ugandans even as he seeks to be the heir to his father’s throne, Muhoozi suggests that Wine will never lead Uganda.
“Kabobi should know that we will never allow him to be President of this country! I don’t fear an election against Kabobi. I would beat him very badly! We beat him in 2021, we will beat him again,” he tweeted.
On the other hand, Besigye has contested five times against Museveni and lost in all elections. He is arguably one of the world’s most arrested and tortured politicians.
In the 2021 general elections, Besigye did not contest for the seat, leaving Wine to challenge East Africa’s longest-serving President.
Having joined President Museveni in the Bush war being his personal doctor, the two would later fall out soon amid reports that Besigye married Museveni’s former lover.
Recently, Wine – real name Robert Kyagulanyi – and Besigye met with the two main opposition leaders strategizing for 2026.
