“Gen Kahinda Otafiire’s son Ernest Otafiire appears to have survived what appears to have been assassination attempt on his life on Entebbe-Kampala expressway this morning” (Centenary Radio 88.1 FM Masaka, 03.03.2023).
“The son of Minister of Internal Affairs Gen Kahinda Otafiire, Ernest Otafiire dispels rumors that he survived assassination. The car whose pictures are shared on social media was involved in an accident at Kalerwe two weeks ago. Ernest was not in the car at that time” (Trumpet News Uganda, 03.03.2023).
I know, I know… I am the wrong brother to write this, because I have mocked his father and laughed that he lost to a jailbird in previous elections. The son is now a target and a man under fire. That’s because he has a free mind and isn’t afraid to use it.
The son of Gen. Kahinda Otafiire, Ernest Otafiire is allegedly a target and escaped assassination today. That’s not shocking, considering how he wrote about Gen. Muhoozi Kainerubaga. We all know the Son of the President who aims at the throne with his “Project Muhoozi” and his almight MK Army. Therefore, anyone who oppose that should be worried. Since, Muhoozi has no issue to torture, kidnap or silence his critics. That everything Muhoozi knows and he thinks his brilliant doing so…
Here is what Ernest wrote not too long ago…
“Our fathers are in the evening of their regime, it’s high time you became humble. These Generals and people you taunt will owe us nothing when our fathers are no more. When chasing us into exile, make sure you can run as fast as some of us. I am sure you know what exile means. This country doesn’t belong to any of (us), it was here before we came, it has been here and it will be here long after we are gone . Be humble and calm down“– Ernest Otafiire (05.12.2022).
With the knowledge of these words. You can imagine how that sent chills down the spines of the First Son, the one and only. The next generation and the standby generator. He had to be pushed, kicking, and screaming. Because, what else could he do… another son of the legendary NRA bush-warriors is dismissing his cause and rightfully so.
It seems like Otafiire junior has wisdom and can read the room. He got enough spirit and understanding of his surroundings, to set the record straight and speak the truth. Not just be a violent and benevolent leader who strikes fear, impose himself and act like a supreme deity amongst men. That’s what Muhoozi does, and he thinks it’s inspiring, which is false, but his allies and paid mercenaries will proclaim his greatness.
We know that most sources and media outlet has called todays affair an assassination attempt. While one is saying it otherwise. We have seen this before and not long ago one minister just barely survived one and a family member died in the same incident. Therefore, it isn’t far-fetched, because even MPs has been targeted like this too. So, it isn’t a fever dream or anything.
We just have awaited more details and more information on the matter. If it will be released or kept hidden. However, the usage of extra judicial killings isn’t new or a forgotten practice in the Republic. Peace.
