It is these days as it is more evident that President Museveni is planning to have Major General Kainerugba Muhoozi as his successor. It is seemingly so, that is why all the detractors pin-pointing it getting in fire or arrested. They are all annoying the President and his “secret” plan, which has been unleashed on the in April 2013.
It isn’t a secret, it isn’t even a smart or wise plan. They are just trying to deflect from the matter, that the Republic isn’t a Kingdom and there is no natural succession from father to son in the public office. Even if the person in question was the wisest or the eligible candidate to take over from his father.
Nevertheless, they will point out to his military career, his place as presidential advisor and the time as the leader of Special Force Command (SFC). This is the terms that he has plus the intimidate knowledge of his heritage and family connection to His Excellency. That is why this is hypocritical.
This is why the question of him taking being sold so hard. While other candidates now like Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine is criticised for his every move, both yesterday and today. He cannot do anything right in the eyes of the Movement and handlers around the President. While his son is the divine creature, the second coming of Jesus and the one speaking like an angle to all mankind.
We have seen this before, everyone trying to succumb and beat Museveni has been thrown into a dungeon, have been beaten and crushed. They have all had flaws and not deemed fit. Surely, similar fashion was said about him before he took power. If it wasn’t for his private army of 5000 men in late 1980 nor the continues battle for supremacy until 1986. This presidency wouldn’t have appeared.
However, it is and now the NRM and Museveni is trying to sell Muhoozi as a viable, as the ONE. The next generation saviour and unique leader to takeover from the old-man with the hat. Like his so special and grand, that everyone else has to step aside. Because, no one, in the republic have the ability or the craftsmanship to takeover from Museveni.
This is really rich-talk and its really become pointless over the years. There been several of candidates whose aspired to takeover in peaceful transition without weapons. None of them has succeeded, because the President wouldn’t let them or wouldn’t step down himself. He would rig himself, intimidate the public and use all the machinery of state to stay in power. That is the sort of the President is today.
That is why to save his own skin and not get repercussions later, he will be saved if a family member takeover. He will not face justice or rule of law, if the son takes over. No, he will not charge the man of deaths, missing people or torturing of dissidents. No, he will let that go and let bygones, be bygones.
This the key reason why Muhoozi is the saviour, the saving grace and man of mercy, because he will in the end: save his father. Not that the old man will say that, because that hurts his pride. But in reality, even him and his closest associates knows that. That is why suddenly, Muhoozi having interviews, people friendly to the regime is talking him up and saying he has a right. That his is eligible and fit person to run the Republic. Not that any of these would write this about Besigye, Bobi Wine, Ssesemogerere, Mao, Otunnu or Mbabazi. None of them has what Muhoozi, none of them.
Even if several of them has been in the bush. Fought the magnificent salvation war that gave way to Museveni. Even if they have been ministers, been men of confidence and of honour in cabinet and in parliament. They still would never have the skill-set, the perfect attire or the approach that the NRM nor Museveni saw fit. However, his son is the finest specimen.
His the latest offering from the fountain of honour, from the head of state and commander-in-chief, there is no underlying factor to why he cannot run the state. That is if you only listens to the good folks and pro-Museveni tribe in certain sets of society. Than, there is no one smiling smoother, who talks and have a clearer mind, then the son of the President. This is just the way they are and how they see things.
We know now, that they will sell him like a divine intervention, like the savour and the only hope Post-Museveni, but that isn’t true? In a republic like Uganda there are plenty who could takeover and run the Republic. Even better than its run today, just they are blocked or intimidated to step up. Because there is risks stepping up against the king and his court. You will meet the authorities and pay for your actions. Since, no one is supposed to do that. Especially, questioning the abilities of the divine creator called Muhoozi. Peace.
