Muhoozi reveals 49th birthday celebrations with President Kagame

Uganda President Yoweri Museveni’s son Muhoozi Kainerugaba has hinted at celebrating his 49th birthday in style, alongside Rwanda President Paul Kagame whom he has consistently referred to as his uncle.

The outspoken Muhoozi announced as much on Twitter, his favourite messaging platform.

He further hinted his birthday party would be low-key as compared to his previous one.

Incidentally, President Kagame was part of Muhoozi’s elaborate 48th birthday party in 2022.

The Rwandan Head of State even flew into Kampala to be part of the celebrations at State House.

The Rwandan Head of State is also said to have sent bulls to Muhoozi as a birthday gift.

“My 49th birthday, 24th April 2023, will be spent in Kigali with Uncle Kagame, family, and a few friends,” he said.

President Kagame and Muhoozi have fostered a good rapport with Muhoozi consistently telling off the former’s adversaries.

“This is my uncle, Afande Paul Kagame. Those who fight him are fighting my family. They should all be careful,” warned Muhoozi

Muhoozi was also a special envoy to Kigali in talks that eased tension between Kampala and Kigali. The success of the talks led to the reopening of the border between Uganda and Rwanda in 2022.

The border was closed after Rwanda and Uganda accused each other of spying and torture of its citizens.

In 2022, Muhoozi, President Museveni’s only son, threw a lavish party that convened political leaders, musicians and personal friends from around the world.

He specifically unveiled a committee to plan his birthday bash led by Michael Toyota Kaguta with Jackie Namuyonga as the secretary.

Some roads were also closed to honour his big day with Kampala Traffic Commander Kauma Rodgers ensuring road users used alternative roads to avoid hiccups to the party’s venue Lugogo Cricket Oval.

Muhoozi also erected some banners across the country to announce his invite-only party.

Days to his 48th birthday, Muhoozi announced his presidential ambition ahead of the 2026 polls.

Ever since, he has been actively campaigning both online and with the masses.
