Museveni’s son’s explosive comeback to Twitter; speaks on fallout with his father

After a brief hiatus from social media amidst claims that he had been blocked from accessing any internet at Nakasero by his father, Museveni’s son Muhoozi Kainerugaba has made a grandstanding return to the e-world, and is laying everything out in the open, all to the delight of Ugandan tabloids.

In a categorical and firm statement, Muhoozi took to Twitter to reiterate that his father has never ever stopped him from tweeting. He claimed that this story is not only inaccurate but also simply a creation of his detractors who are uneasy with his plan to herald in a new Uganda. His tweet read,

President Museveni never stopped me from tweeting. That is a fabrication by people who are scared of us. And by ‘Us’ I mean the young people of this country i.e. ‘New Uganda’.

Having been previously known to be generally a silent observer on Uganda’s political scene, Muhoozi has recently taken to twitter suddenly becoming outspoken on a number of socio-political issues in Uganda but mostly in praise of the UPDF which he hails as ‘the greatest Army in the world’. In a 2013 speech to the UPDF High Command, President Museveni said this of the then Brig. Muhoozi, ‘“I am most pleased that Muhoozi has turned out to be a very serious officer, quiet and devoted to the building of the army” in reference to Muhoozi’s work in building the Special Forces Command.

Muhoozi has been dubbed by some in the media as the ‘tweeting General’ in reference to his sudden prolific use of Twitter, frequently posting content that some do not view as befitting of someone of his rank and position in the Army and in Uganda’s social sphere.

Through twitter, Muhoozi has actively commented on Uganda’s fractured relationship with Rwanda promising to speak with his ‘uncle’ President Paul Kagame of Rwanda to allow for the re-opening of the Rwanda-Uganda border. The Rwanda-Uganda border was closed by Rwanda in 2019 in a diplomatic protest accusing Uganda of harboring and supporting elements Kigali considered active in attempting to destabilize Rwanda.

On March 6, 2022, Muhoozi took to twitter to announce that the Rwanda-Uganda border would be fully re-opened on March 7, 2022, after several diplomatic engagements that saw Muhoozi travel to Kigali twice in early 2022. He said in praise of the successful negotiations to re-open the border, “The border is fully opening tomorrow. Me and my uncle (President Kagame) achieved in 7 hours what all the diplomats on earth failed to achieve. I think we need a prize.”

On 12 April 2022, Muhoozi de-activated his Twitter account. He returned on 16 April. He then again went on a more recent hiatus before his latest comeback.
