Uganda: Bobi Wine – The promotion of Muhoozi, a step towards his “coronation” as president
National Unity Platform (NUP) leader Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has said the promotion of Lt Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba to the rank of general is a step towards his eventual coronation as President of Uganda.
Kyagulanyi’s remarks came hours after President Museveni sacked Kainerugaba as UPDF ground forces commander and promoted to full general.
He was replaced by Lieutenant General Kayanja Muhanga.
Commenting on the changes, Kyagulanyi said: “After yesterday’s (Monday) thoughtless tweets and threats against Kenya, Museveni has rewarded his brutal son with a new gift: the rank of full general. as he awaits his coronation as head of our country.All people who wish Uganda well must stop being indifferent.
Kyagulanyi claimed that Museveni and his son were the main perpetrators and beneficiaries of the worst human rights abuses against the people of Uganda.
He explained that all these actions that are being taken against the people of Uganda are aimed at protecting the duo from accountability for the violations. He called on international organizations to stop funding Museveni’s regime.
“Let me issue a warning to all governments and international organizations that continue to work with the illegitimate government of Museveni – you can see what you have funded and supported from the start. It is time to say enough,” did he declare.
He appealed to the people of the world not to watch Uganda shrink further into utter disorder.
The changes that saw Muhoozi dropped as ground forces commander stem from the recent Twitter meltdown in which he said he would only need two weeks with his army to capture Kenya’s capital, Nairobi.
The sporadic tweets left many baffled and confused and some wondering if Kainerugaba was responsible for his Twitter account.
