Opinion: Muhoozi’s presidential bid is in violation of the UPDF Act

“99. Political Office

A serving officer or militant who desires to seek political office shall first resign or retire from the Defence Forces according to regulations made by the Minister” (UPDF Act, 2005).

We are now seeing and hearing a vocal Lt. General, the First Son and the Senior Presidential Advisor, Muhoozi Kainerubaga acting up on his dream and aspiration to take over from his father. His appointing people, directing commandos to Karamoja and being directly involved in the political landscape.

The Lt. Gen. already has hired or appointed spokespersons, he has leaders of regions and planning a little media empire with radio and TV. The Son of the President is campaigning for his own name and own agenda far away from 2026. It is years in the making and the speeches are not giving him an edge either.

Yes, government media is friendly to him. The ones who have the paid gig for MK Movement/Army is happy too. The MPs who have been surrounded by him and vouched for are within reach too. All of these people are giddy for the next meal ticket after his father’s time are over in office. Everyone has anticipated the end and the end of an era.

However, the 49-year-old and novice has little to show for it. He is an entitled brat and an arrogant one. Who can just spew out nonsense and lack of substance. While he moves around like a honourable minister and high-ranking official. He is a Senior Presidential Advisor, but not a Commander of Land Forces. Neither is a he a CDF or Minister of Defence. Still, he could redeploy soldiers and promise funds to patch up the hurt in Karamoja. That is a role of several government officials and holding “rallies” outside of the “election road-map”. Which we know the opposition would never be allowed to do.

Muhoozi just living on the other side of the law. Just like his father who hasn’t or don’t need to comply to initial laws. They can live like outlaws and be above it all. The Lt. Gen. should have resigned from the army and the UPDF. Though we haven’t seen or heard that. It isn’t long ago he was promoted and demoted of a role at the same time.

“Project Muhoozi” is now live. The MK Movement/Army is official. This is another one of them artificial campaigns that is all “hot-air” and a mirage. MK might believe his own ego and hubris is enough. Though he cannot manage a proper speech or charisma to speak with passion. He needs cliff-notes and to remember the simplest things.

He comes like a “statesman” in helicopters and convoys, though his just another token soldier for his father. Muhoozi is the avenger and the warrior son. He isn’t made for or has the skill to portray himself in another way. He lacks the humility and compassion, secondly, he lacks the charisma and the ability to speak with belief. It is all just hallowed, and no posturing or bravado can save his skin.

The UPDF act should be adhered too, especially by a Lt. General, but we know it doesn’t matter to him. Muhoozi can act like his above it all. That he has seen and acknowledge what his father has done over the years. Now he wants to do the same and be blessed by the same spotlight. Though, he cannot carry himself like his father. Neither can he address the crowds or enlighten on policy like him. His himself… though and through.

For him this might just be a plot and game to the next stage of life. He is entitled to cash-in and inherit the throne. Though it isn’t a monarchy and he isn’t a prince. His just another soldier who thinks the next kingpin.

Oh gee, when the truth hits him. It will hurt. He considers himself a “revolutionary” and a “great”, but it is all a lie. A lie that he cannot commit too. This is bound to fail and be a mockery of a race. Muhoozi should answer to the UPDF Act, but we know by association and his father. He will not be touched, because he couldn’t apprehend his son like has done to Besigye or Bobi Wine. Peace.

Opinion: Mwenda’s narrow path…

Overall, the blog has taken a critical stance towards Mwenda’s political commentary and his views on Ugandan politics, with a focus on his support of the NRM and his criticism of opposition leaders” (ChatGPT, 25.03.2023).

Over the years, I have been a staunch and loudmouth critic of journalist and editor Andrew Mwenda. That has been within reason and with arguments, which I find reasonable. However, this last week. I find myself in a peculiar place, in agreement with Mwenda. Even if we don’t see eye-to-eye or is in the same head-space.

Mwenda has been a token ally of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) and an unofficial government spokesperson with his views and perspectives. So, it wasn’t shocking that the Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerubaga appointed him to the spokesperson of the MK Army/Movement. That was just the where he was headed anyway.

So, when I see the pushback and retorts back after Mwenda published another one of his Facebook rants. I find it interesting, that this time… his on point and the last time was maybe the garbage helicopters of Garang. So, it has been a decade or so, since we agreed upon something or can acknowledge the pseudo-intellectual spin of his.

Especially when Mwenda write so poignantly this:

More critically, the law is as stupid as it is going to be redundant. It is stupid because it is passed on the basis of protecting Ugandan morals. But you cannot legislate morality and enforce it using state diktat. Morality would be best left to families and religious institutions. Besides homosexuality is not the only “immoral” problem Uganda is facing. As already state above, Ugandans are having sex before marriage, husbands and wives (in fact 90% of the MPs who voted for this law) are cheating on their spouses with reckless abandon, kids in schools are binge drinking and fornicating as if it is running out of fashion etc. etc. The law will be redundant because homosexuality among consenting adults is a private activity conducted in the privacy of their bedrooms. Since both parties are consenting, there is miniscule likelihood that one party will report to police against another. If the problem is pedophilia (sex with underage kids or minors), which is what most Ugandans I listen to seem to insinuate, we have the law against defilement. If it is nonconsensual sex, then we have the law against rape” (Andrew M. Mwenda – ‘Uganda’s homophobic madness’ 24.03.2023).

These words are so on point and makes on the other side of his boss. Mwenda is now crossing paths with the views and perspectives of Muhoozi. The spokesperson of the MK Movement is questioning the reasoning and political motives of their “beloved” leader. I couldn’t have stated these words more perfectly myself. I’m amazed that Mwenda wrote this… when he should know how Muhoozi feels about. That is the man with the meal-ticket and future political base to uphold.

While Mwenda is right in his reasoning and basis for his arguments. I totally agree with him. His going into troubled territories here. Mwenda is crossing swords and negating the views of the Lt. Gen. A man who has professed his love for the Lord and Women. We know the General has even praised the beauty of Kenyan and Rwandan Women. As well, as speaking endearing about his wife. So, we know the game his playing…

Alas, here comes the trouble. Even if Mwenda is right and has a sound mind here. That don’t matter when he has to cater to the court of public opinion. Neither does it help him when the cronies and everyone around him eyeing for his spot. Sooner or later he could fall out of favour and be sacked in the morning.

Mwenda is playing a game he cannot win. He can challenge the law in the Courts like he did with the previous ones. However, his gambling the ticket and the enterprise he has with Muhoozi. The Lt. Gen. isn’t a seasoned vet or a man of rational thinking. His a boozed up and brutal individual with an ego higher than Mount Kilimanjaro. So, Mwenda should be careful here…

He ended his text with this:

To conservative Ugandans, I can only say that our country can only suppress homosexuality by simply abandoning our search for modernization. Here, we would all turn our back on development and return to our villages to live as peasants. But this we will not do because out desire for development is much more intense than our hatred for homosexuality. For gay Ugandans and liberal intellectuals, ignore the subjective motivations of the homophobes. The objective outcome of this draconian law is to widen the debate and bring more knowledge, curiosity and eventually tolerance of homosexuality in our country” (Mwenda, 24.03.2023).

It is really a compelling way and a story to tell. That is uses this argument and reasoning this far. A man who counted cars to explain the rising development. Now he says homosexuality is a sign of modernity. In this instance, I beg to differ a little, because this has always existed and been a thing. That’s why even Roman emperors was dwelling in these activities and that’s ages ago. So, it is part of humanity. The only difference with out time… is that the legality and the human rights conventions are allowing it by law many place. Nevertheless, I am on the side of Mwenda.

You shouldn’t target one minority and have laws that are so severe over moralities. That will be a dangerous path and we don’t know where that is ending. It is starting today with the gays, but tomorrow it could be your neighbour. That’s why the text of Mwenda is within reason and common sense. While we know that all common sense, isn’t all that common.

For a man that has bastardized and gone overboard in his defence of the state and vilification of the opposition. Mwenda was on point here… but by doing so… he could lose his fortunes and his future. As he bets on goodwill and possible other ramifications by taking this stance. This saga will continue.

A year ago or two… I would have neither sided with this man. However, his proving that he can be reasonable and be right. That’s a relief, but don’t expect this to be an occurring theme. Peace.

Opinion: Muhoozi’s “popularity” is artificial at best…

Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerubaga and his MK Movement/Army is a castle made on sand. The waves will overtake it and the sand will end up in the ocean. The seas will over time take control and return things back to “normal”.

The castle that MK and his handlers are building looks shiny. The gates, the water-ways and the astute guarding towers. Nevertheless, it is a pointless exercise, when it is all based on a lie. MK have no real popularity or sense of what the public wants. His trying to act youthful and be the “next” in line. Though it is a futile enterprise, because he has no charisma and no message to sell.

Unless, his trying to act holier than thou. The militant and brutal soldier who is trying to convene messages of faith and belief in the future. A man who is trying to succeed and copy his father. Though his father has reasoning and knows how to spin an agenda. His son looks like a fish out of water. Muhoozi just cannot stomach or has the cognitive ability to convey it.

We know the team who is buys with their gig will do what they can to sell him. If it is on the social media platforms. If not in the newspapers and wherever you can read about it. They will make it seem like he has “real” crowds and engagement. Though people are ferried, paid and fed to be there. They aren’t there out of love or support, but getting there for a free t-shirt.

While others has build parties and tried in the political landscape to fight for their rights. For MK it is a right of passage. Since others are blocked, silenced, tortured and not allowed to enter the arenas. The whole state machinery and every little minion is preparing the feasts for MK. From his birthday bashes to now “clean up” Sundays. The state are just ushering him in and kissing his feet.

That’s why MK starts to believe his onto something. Even when his far from it. When you are living on a lie. The lie will sooner or later catch on to you. Especially, when his surrounded by “yes-men” who won’t dare to question him or challenge him. They don’t want the avenger to leave them in a dungeon like his done to others over the years.

MK is a soldier at heart and not a good one either. It is easy to win battles over unarmed civilians and humiliate opponents who are mere mortals. That’s what he has done and it’s been relatively easy. He has gotten away with murder and with human rights violations. As a commander of the Special Forces Command. He has done things that are despicable. Therefore, thinking his loved and genuinely popular is naive.

Muhoozi will not achieve his goals on merit or by a popular vote. It got to be rigged, because his artificially created and made up. The token Manchurian candidate and not the true definition of populist. No, his just a brother who would have been a butcher or mechanic, if it wasn’t his father being the tyrant since 1986. That’s why he thinks his all of that and he got the juice.

There is no juice and no mental gymnastics that can make him a “winner”. Since he doesn’t have it in him. A politician and a popular leader needs certain characteristics…. Which MK doesn’t have and never will. First of his father had some of it and he was able to sell his lies for years. Secondly, MK doesn’t have the time or want to go to the bush for his “rights”. His already old and isn’t built that way. MK is the elite and the product of the patronage of the NRM. That’s why his like this… and he won’t change. Peace.

Opinion: Muhoozi can’t even save himself…

There is a supposed momentum, a rise of power and prestige surrounding the son of the President. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerubaga. Whatever it is… it is artificial, fake and a fraud. It isn’t real. Just like his speeches, bought T-Shirts and MK Army/Movement.

It is a house built on sand and the ocean-waves will take it all away. Muhoozi hasn’t built a strong foundation or anything. No, it is faked and manufactured, but he doesn’t know better. He might think this is wise and brilliant. His yes men are proclaiming his brilliance and leadership, but we all know its isn’t genuine.

Muhoozi is only mentioned because of his relations. He wouldn’t be in the spotlight or mattered, if he was a son of a rollex-maker or a boda-boda driver. Heck, he wouldn’t have the ability to rise through the ranks, if his father was a professor at Makerere University or NRA historical. No, it wouldn’t matter and the ambition would have fallen flat.

However, the gig stays the gig. The ones playing the violins will play the music and the dancers will shake their bodies. Nevertheless, the General might think it is legit. He might buy into the charade and be a useful idiot. Though everyone else can see the lie and it’s happening right in front of their eyes.

Muhoozi can act like his playing the game, but its a house of cards. Just waiting for the moment of weakness, a shortness of breathe or hesitation… which in the ends takes the house down. That’s how this will end.

Project Muhoozi” isn’t built on the truth. Muhoozi isn’t popular through grassroot organizations or by popular demand. No, his not a tidal-wave or a the new rising sun. He is the relic of the past before he even speaks. His a memory of the old and a stain of the current regime. They can sell him has “youthful” and “next generation” but his really just a lesser relatable or charismatic than his father.

The General lacks finesse, charisma or even an ideology to sell. His just posturing and being braggadocios. Muhoozi has no story to sell or pledges to make a difference. The General is only there out of entitlement and expectation. However, his not there out of need or because he got a say.

Muhoozi is an empty vessel and a publicity stunt. That’s why he needs a strong team to sell him. Since he got nothing that resembles a beloved character or a political framework worth damn. The General is an empty bottle and there is no juice. There is no soda or brew to taste. Just a bottle with a label and a title. Nothing substantial or worth to pick up. Who picks up an empty bottle? When you can have a soda or a beer….

The General is a waste of time. The son of the father and a loser he is. Kabobi has shown how this is done. Besigye have shown how this is done. Muhoozi got nothing on them. The avenger and soldier of old will not regain or collect tokens that matters. He will only be in the conservation, because of the father. It is sad… but nobody will cry for the man. Except for the sorry individuals who are working tirelessly to make the man feasible. They have an unforgiving job and have to create propaganda to make him likeable. That’s the tragedy here and some naive fellows will buy into it, but they will regret ever doing so. Since, they will see the brute and the nonchalant man he really is… but by then it will be too late.

Muhoozi won’t win hearts, but he will crush the opposition. The General will not send a message, but he will mute the ones who does. That’s the only way he can succeed. He don’t have the character or the personality to do it any other way. Peace.

Opinion: Don’t mock “Biya” my friend…

“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.

Opinion: Muhoozi can act the way he does because his father carries his load…

Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba is now preparing himself for the bigtimes. He is holding rallies and have started his mission with he MK Army/Movement. In that regard, he has also appointed a long-time ally and associate Andrew Mwenda to be his spokesperson. The circle has ended, and the “Project Muhoozi” is now a main stay.

Media is hyping the man up. Even when he has no charisma, no flair, and no message. It is a shallow and braggadocios man. Who has never been accountable in his life, whatsoever…? A man who has never stood tall on his own. The only reason why he became a General and a Senior Presidential Advisor. Was for one sole fact – flesh and blood. It wasn’t because of a particular skill or education. No, just because he happens to be the son of his father.

The General do have the options and abilities others don’t have. He could hold birthday bashes, tournaments and now rallies. While the opposition cannot pray, hold conferences, or even visit fellow MPs in the hospital. No, they are blocked from accessing their own or even capable of running their own organizations. While the First Son, the Son of the President can early start with his “campaign” for Presidency with his boosted-up ego.

General Kainerugaba is clearly not that clever. When he uses voter tourism and ferrying crowds to his rallies. Just like his father does because he knows he cannot get them there on default. He must use buses and spend fortunes of getting them. While he does the same mistake to not take care of them. Only have them there for photo-ops and leaving them behind. Meaning, they are without food, shelter, or ability to return home. That’s the vibe over the weekend and we seen that too.

It is obvious that the General have started his MK Army or MK Movement now. He wants to be the NEXT. Though he has no birth right or ability to be there. The man only thinks so, because he has sat at the table of the State House since a child. True that he hasn’t seen anything else, but that doesn’t mean his fit for it either. Especially, considering his brutal and ignorant ways.

I just wonder how Mwenda will spin this, because he has been “Mao” guy and his now in the Cabinet. The editor of the Independent has traded all integrity for the quick buck. No one is shocked, but for someone calling out Bobi Wine and Besigye over the years. He surely needs to muster all of his intelligence to sell Muhoozi.


He isn’t a bargain and isn’t a winner from the beginning. The General is only high ranking and a man of the town, because of family ties. There is not substantial or unique about his character. He could just be a butcher or a tiny dancer in one of those nightclubs. It is nothing there and it must be artificially created around him. Since there is no justification or sort of persona to be inspired by. That’s why anyone who has the gig or the appointment to MK Army / Movement should feel blessed. They have an empty canvass and can paint whatever picture they want. Except for the brutal brute, which we know from the days of Special Forces Command and the Army Commander ways. That is a story they never want to tell. The stories of murder, torture, and kidnappings. No, that is fort others to tell.

Some says: “Heavy is the Head that Wears the Crown”. The crown is carried by the father and the son doesn’t feel that weight. That is why his so nonchalant about it all. He knows he can get rid of someone, and he has no burden to carry. That’s because of his father and the reign, which he has uphold for so long. Gen. Muhoozi is just the proof of how the elite and how they consider themselves above the average citizens. He just thinks so, by the simple of reason of his name and where he has resided. That’s all that matters to him.

The General just want power and be the next in line. Even if he was never fit for it or had the humility to be in that office. No, he just wants to be there… because he wants to continue where his father left off. That’s it and that’s not a winning formula. There is no service, no programme or ideology. Just an egotistic brat who wants to be crowned “King”. Peace.

Opinion: The MK [Army] Movement will die quicker than Go Forward

I don’t know if you remember a time and the place when Amama Mbabazi was challenging within the National Resistance Movement to be the Presidential Flagbearer. That is a few years back, but not long ago to be folklore. No, Mbabazi, the Chairman of NRM and as Prime Minister tried to conquer and get ahead of President Yoweri Tibuhurwa Kaguta Museveni. We all know that went south and he created his own political pressure group called Go Forward.

We are now seeing similar things created for General Muhoozi Kainerubaga. The MK Army or the MK Movement. There was one little moment where there was talk of a rebrand of the NRM to the National Progressive Movement (NPM). However, that seems thwarted and instead his making his own entity.

If that entity is a political pressure group or political party… that’s hard to know at this very moment. It is an extension and a prepared machinery of the “Project Muhoozi”. Where people are elected to roles and such. Just the other day, the MK Army elected Michael Mawanda MP, Balaam Barugahara Ateenyi and the Supreme Commander himself Muhoozi Kainerubaga into various of roles within the MK Army. Even Frank Gashumba is the Chief Strategist and Media Director of the MK Army. So, the plan is made and people are organizing the efforts.

Nevertheless, there isn’t a lesser of a man or a man lacking charisma they are selling. Street preachers or choir girls has more flair or finesse than this man on stage. His people or team behind the scenes has to polish the man. Because, there is nothing in the public speeches of late, which oozes brilliance or even credibility. His just a mediocre leader who happens to be the son of the President.

These people hired and elected to positions in the MK Army will fall flat. They have clearly the money and the ambition here. Just like the Go Forward Pressure Group had vast funds, a social media team and a broad-based manifesto. Still, there was nothing of interest or generating a huge following come election day.

The MK Movement will get the same vibe. At least Mbabazi can speak in public and he has some sort of flair. He doesn’t sound baffled or struggling to speak a coherent sentence on stage. Neither does he lack the personality or the ideology of his political causes. No matter how I dislike and wants to discredit a corrupt person like Mbabazi. At least his political savvy and can sell a story. However, Muhoozi cannot even sell his favourite bottle of beer or believe that he loves his wife. It all is just posturing. Just like his Christianity and his “Pan-Africanism”. He is just saying it to follow the footsteps of his father…

The MK Army or the MK Movement will dwindle and be hot-air. If a man of expertise and of experience like Mbabazi can fail. You will now that the mind of Muhoozi will fall even more. There is no real popularity and the gig-economy can only get you so far. The amounts of voter tourism and paying attendance at rallies or public functions will not be sustainable either. The public will come for the food and the T-shirt. For then to go home and laugh about the sorry display of Muhoozi.

I cannot see this going well. The public has already been forced the father for over 30 years. To send his son in his stead. Is just a reminder of what is currently going on. If the son think this will go well. Then his a fool and that is the perception anyway. Nevertheless, the ones eating of his plate is surely feeling blessed these days. They have an easy journey in the troubling times. While we all know the MK Army will most likely feed into the same traps of Go Forward. It isn’t a popular rising or a figure of hope.

The General is just a reminder of everything wrong and a continuation of the oppression of his father. That’s why he was named the avenger and it’s proven already by the tenure or leadership of the Special Forces Command (SFC). That unit has shown the sinister side of the NRM and what they are willing to do… to silence people and make people stop. That’s why the crowds or voter tourism will only show “fake love” and when the money stops. The whole thing is a facade and Muhoozi will be the biggest loser. Because, he invested all of this money and time with nothing to gain from it.

KaBobi” will easily beat Muhoozi in a fair fight, but we know Muhoozi like his father will only win with “predetermined” results or rigged in their favour. It is not like the General would risk it all and trust the public. He got no proof of governing or political track-record. His only a high ranking official and senior Presidential Advisor, because of his lineage. That’s it and that’s why it’s a fools enterprise, but an enterprise, nevertheless.

Well… the General’s turn is maybe up, but he will fall brutally down. Peace.

Opinion: Did Gen. Muhoozi forget the “sports”? [the M23 tweets can damage the trust between Kampala and Kinshasa]

If he was tweeting on sports — things which are not controversial — that would not be a problem; but to talk about other countries or even the partisan politics of Uganda, that he must not do” – President Yoweri Tibuhurwa Kaguta Museveni (14.10.2022).

KINSHASA, May 28 (Xinhua) — The government of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has decided to classify the March 23 Movement (M23) as a terrorist group, a DRC government spokesperson said late Friday. “The M23 is now considered as a terrorist group and will be treated in the way (we treat the terrorists),” Patrick Muyaya said at a press conference after a national security committee session chaired Friday by DRC President Felix Tshisekedi” (Xinhua – ‘DRC classifies M23 rebels as terrorists’ 28.05.2022).

Again and again, General Muhoozi Kainerubaga goes on a rampage on social media and yet again on his Twitter page. This time he isn’t saying it’s easy to invade Kenya or speaks of admiration of ladies. No, his going in again and deliberately taking part in diplomatic works in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

The General today has defended the Mouvement du Mars 23 (M23) which the FARDC is fighting in North Kivu province. While the UPDF is together with the FARDC is in a mission going after the ADF in the DRC. So, we are seeing the General is openly going to war against one rebellion and one militia, but defending another. The other has already the origins and support from both Kigali and Kampala. Therefore, the latest support of Muhoozi can question the regime’s direct support of the M23 within the DRC.

We know the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and even President Museveni will end up with writing a letter to President Tshisekedi. There is no reason for the National Resistance Movement (NRM) or the Government of Uganda for that matter to support M23 in public. We know the UPDF and the GoU has supported the M23 in the past. The cantonment of former soldiers or combatants was stationed in Uganda. That happened after the Nairobi Accords and later these has been able to flee or re-locate in the DRC. Therefore, the General is maybe saying the silent part out loud.

In this regard… Muhoozi is playing with fire. He is humbling an ally, which they are fighting together with elsewhere in the DRC. If Kinshasa is coming out with a hasty press conference or even wanting an answer from the Ugandan ambassador. That all makes sense.

Since these words are not only from the Son of the President. His the Senior Presidential Advisor on Special Operation and former Commander of Land Forces. He has relevance and means within the army and the government. A man of his stature should know how Kinshasa looks and has designated M23. That Muhoozi says M23 isn’t a terrorist group is directly challenging Tshisekedi.

Will Kinshasa accept this? Is Kampala in on it all along? There was all sorts of speculations when M23 came back into the picture. The M23 is and has been supported of both Kigali and Kampala. That is proven and no one can deny that in 2022. However, who is behind them right now and who has financed it this time around.

Now with the latest rant of Muhoozi. We can wonder if there was something more directed from Kampala. That wouldn’t shocking or earth shattering, but the ones in-charge in Kinshasa should be worried. Since, the UPDF is participating and already allowed within it’s borders. If a General and a High Ranking Official is defending a militia and a terrorist organization on your soil. You know there is more to this…

President Museveni has soon to fly out to Kinshasa. He got to meet President Tshisekedi and make amends. This sort of statement or uttering is only deteriorating the relations. When these are supposed to be strengthen by the joint operation. Instead, Muhoozi is acting like this and recklessly too. Peace.

MK Students’ Force: MK Students’ Force Endorsement for Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba to stand for Presidency (22.10.2022)

A look into yesterday’s speech by Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba in Arua

Sports is obviously, an economic activity, I’m sure these young people here know, those who follow English Premier League. You know all those players out there, who makes a lot of money. Simply by doing something they love, which is football – General Muhoozi Kainerugaba (22.10.2022)

This is written after watching and hearing the speech of General Muhoozi Kainerugaba in Arua. The speech and address was really telling. You know the man isn’t used to or have the confidence to be in front of the public. Because, why would he look down and be so into his phone.

Speaking of West Nile and a Sport Tournament. Even giving credit to the local MP. Nevertheless, the General didn’t show any sort of care for the message that he was spreading. He even needed notes of who was playing in the tournament and the winner two. Which was funny, because he said in the end, “I believe”.

A few quotes from the speech:

Sports helps with our health, the more active you are, the more you avoid certain diseases. That comes with the lack of exercise” (Muhoozi, 22.10.2022).

I want to encourage young people to use their talent to achieve greatness. Whatever those talents are” (Muhoozi, 22.10.2022).

As I said, I handed over my last office, the Commander of Land Forces, I intend to focus on the youth, and youth activities like this, like sports” (Muhoozi, 22.10.2022).

We pledge to work with government to ensure the interest of the youth are a, taken care off, but government are already doing a lot of things in sports” (Muhoozi, 22.10.2022).

So the President has put a lot of effort into this area of sports, and we need to support him” (Muhoozi, 22.10.2022).

What is striking is how he had to read from the phone. Staring into the phone like it had all the cues and words he needs to use. Like he read a long time before he spoke of the “unifying belief and support of the Uganda Cranes”. Which was a fine statement, but it shouldn’t been that hard to say. That should be in his heart and mind, because that was sort of patriotic and totally bipartisan. However, maybe he needed the memos on the phone to remember this sentiment?

He even had to look extra to through the notes to remember when he last was staying long in Nebbi and the needs of the West Nile. Secondly, he had most likely written down to “thank everyone”. It is really showing there is vast difference between him and his father.

His father can stand up and lie for hours. Muhoozi isn’t like his father and cannot even wing it on stage. Museveni can at least also copy a speech written for him and just add additional anecdotes or whatnot. While Muhoozi is clinging on to the phone for his dear life. All the pieces to the puzzle is there.

In the speech to, which was really short. Muhoozi had a lot of silence, stops and had to read the script on the phone. That’s a bad look. His supposed to engage the crowd and get them interested in the message. However, he was more into the Samsung, Nokia or whatever brand of phone he was having.

The ones that is behind for Presidency. Do you want a man that lacks this much character, charisma and even gracing the public with his presence?

We know the General is acting bad-ass and as a supreme leader with his twitter-fingers. However, in person and on stage. His another guy, less boosting his ego or ability to sell an idea. He can boost his presence and his ideals on Twitter, but he cannot hold a speech. It seemingly looking like his a lost soul and lack experience in doing so.

A General that cannot stomach to speak without his notes or pre-written quotes. He maybe wanted to sound smart and credible. However, the staring into the screen, the moments of silence and lack of public engagement is no good. That’s what the speech oozes of for me.

General Muhoozi Kainerugaba lacks a lot and that’s clear. He has been skating on being a part of the first family and being bound by the power of his father. However, when his standing alone and wanting to control a crowd. He just don’t have it. Neither does he have the message or belief in what his saying.

If he was to sell the brilliance of that mobile phone he was carrying. I would believe him, because all of his answers was right there. Peace.
