Top government officials meet after Museveni’s son tweets

Top government officials from Kenya and Uganda held a series of meetings to prevent a possible fallout from controversial tweets sent out by President Yoweri Museveni’s son, Muhoozi Kainerugaba.

Kenya’s High Commissioner in Uganda met Uganda Foreign Affairs PS in Kampala as the two governments continued to manage a possible fallout from the Muhoozi controversial tweets.

“H.E. Maj. Gen. (Rtd) George Owinow met with Mr Vincent Waiswa Bagiire, Permanent Secretary @UgandaMFA this morning. While reaffirming the warm and brotherly relations between Kenya and Uganda, the two discussed other matters of mutual interest.”

Then Alfred Mutua, the CS for Foreign Affairs held another meeting with the Uganda High Commissioner to Kenya in Nairobi.

It has emerged that Kenya demanded a public clarification on Muhoozi’s tweet in which he suggested toppling President Ruto’s government.

The government of Uganda has released a statement and disassociated itself from the first son’s controversial tweets.

“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs wishes to clarify that the Government of the Republic of Uganda does not conduct its Foreign Policy and other official businesses through social media nor does it depend on social media sources in dealing with other sovereign governments.”

On Monday, Muhoozi had a Twitter meltdown, which started by expressing discontent following retired President Uhuru Kenyatta’s inability to run for a third term claiming he would have won easily.

“My only problem with my beloved big brother is that he didn’t stand for a third term. We would have won easily!”

He would then insinuate that Mr Kenyatta would have followed his father’s footsteps and altered the constitution to allow him to rule again.

“Haha! I love my Kenyan relatives. Constitution? Rule of law? You must be joking! For us, there is only the Revolution and you will soon learn about it!”

Still not done, suggest that it would only take him two weeks to topple President Ruto’s government and pose to Kenyans where they’d like him to live after that.

“After our army captures Nairobi, where should I live? Westlands? Riverside?”

Muhoozi later admitted that he would never beat the Kenyan army.

“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 would then be summoned by his father, President Museveni who promoted him to the ranks of a General while removing him as the commander of the land forces of the Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF).
