Muhoozi wants his Army role back

Uganda President Yoweri Museveni’s son Muhoozi Kainerugaba has publicly asked to be handed back his role in the Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF).

Muhoozi served as UPDF’s Commander of Land Forces (CDF) until October 2022 when his father dropped him in the wake of controversial tweets he posted about capturing Nairobi, Kenya’s capital.

Despite relinquishing the CDF role, Museveni promoted his son to General, the highest title in the army, but left him without a job description.
