By Mudecha Aramathan
Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Uganda has denied the newly promoted General, Muhoozi Kainerugaba’s tweets against the Government of Kenya that have dominated the social media since Friday last week.
In the document issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, noted that the Government and People of the Republic of Uganda treasure the existing strong bilateral relations between the people and the Government of the Republic of Kenya.
Office of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs also added that the Government of Uganda does not conduct its foreign policy and other official businesses through social media sources in dealing with other sovereign Governments.
Uganda President Yoweri Museveni’s son, Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba posted a series of controversial tweets about Kenya in what he first blamed Kenya’s Former President, Uhuru Kenyatta for not scrapping off the term limits from the Kenyan National Constitution and contest for a third term in the resent Presidential elections.
“My only problem with my big brother is that he did not stand for a third term. We would have won easily,” he said.
Muhoozi added that Kenya would have changed the constitution to reflect a revolution like it’s about to be done in Uganda.
” Haha! I love my Kenyan relatives. Constitution? Rule of Law? You must be joking! For us (Uganda), there is only the Revolution and you will soon learn about it.”
The newly promoted General went ahead and tweeted that , ” It wouldn’t take us, my army and me, 2 weeks to capture Nairobi”. He also tweeted that, ” I’m happy that members of our district Kenya have responded enthusiastically to my tweet. It’s still 2 weeks to capture Nairobi! After our army captures Nairobi where should I live? Westlands? Riverside?”
However, as many Ugandans still go bananas about what these tweets are intended to achieve , President Museveni has promoted but dropped the first son Muhoozi, from being a Lt. General to the rank of General.
