Opinion: The choice between Odrek or Muhoozi [is a monarchy ticket either way]

This week Odrek Rwabwogo have been appointed by the President to a Senior Presidential Advisor of Special Duties. Odrek is the son-in-law, as he married President’s daughter, Patience Museveni. So, he is as connected as can be by marriage.

While the first son Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerubaga, the Commander of Land Forces, the third rank in command of the Uganda Peoples Defence Force (UPDF). While his also a Senior Presidential Advisor for Special Operations.

I have now seen online that for some strange reasons… there is discussion who of these is taking over after the Self-Styled President for Life. They are discussing if one of the family members are taking over after the ruler for life and his tyranny. That people are willing to be controlled and only have one family to rule the nation.

However, to public knowledge… the Republic of Uganda isn’t a kingdom or a monarchy. Even if Museveni wants to be the King of Kings. He wants to be the absolute ruler by definition of law and constitution that’s not happening. Part of his rule is by decree or directives. Still, his not a King and a Monarch.

For all sense and purposes, until this is legally changed or by a referendum. Museveni is still a Head of State and a Commander-in-Chief. He is His Excellency (H.E) and the Fountain of Honour. He is the President and been so since January 26th 1986. Doesn’t give him the rights or ability to decide who is his successor.

Yes, a President can point at somebody and say: “I want him or her to be my successor”. However, that is not legal binding argument and it is not statute that make the a legit transfer of power. So, the ones who is preparing for Muhoozi or Odrek. Isn’t doing that on their merits or their capacity to be Presidents. Since, it is not a family affair. They have ot be standing for respective parties and be challenged at elections. That’s how these sort of things goes.

The general public who is tired of the old man. Why do they want to have his son-in-law or his first son? Who thinks that is a viable option? Unless, your paid promoter and part of the “Project Muhoozi”. It is not his a articulate or a genuine leader. Neither is proven… he has been promoted and gotten a bigger role because of who he happens to be. Not because merit or what he has achieved in the field.

This is a family matter or a dynasty ticket. There should be nothing automatic about either of these gentlemen. They are not even part of the central leadership of the National Resistance Movement (NRM). Neither have they a history or been leaders in the political sphere even. These haven’t been tested in elections for other roles either. So, it is not like they have a huge following or a rising to power this way.

Unless, they want to rise to power like the old man and use arms to get there. That would follow family history and use private armies in combination of a popular uprising to a coup d’etat. Nevertheless, I don’t think they will do that to topple their head of the family. Who just happens to be the President at this current time.

This is the choice for the ones who still wants one family to rule the Republic. It is for the ones that is accepting the personification of the state and only his family can govern. That isn’t written anywhere or have become law. Even if it is in the mind of the President or his close associates. Who will do what they can to salvage the loot, the companies and all other projects it has entangled with the state. They are afraid of losing this in combination of answering to the sins of their father and his years in power. That’s why they need a second generation President to ensure nobody gets to account for it and also shield the father as well. It is that simple…

They want to secure the tyrant legacy and his spoils. To ensure that he be remembered better than he should. So, that the family can keep it all and not have to pay a price for how it got it all. That’s the worry and that’s why there is people even fielding these gentlemen.

Why would the people be duped for a second generation Museveni? Why do you want more of the same and have a crippling state, which haven’t gotten better. Museveni have had 35 years and still has plenty of the same issues as when he entered into office. He could have changed things, but he hasn’t because that haven’t been the priority.

So, the dynasty ticket will only deliver more of this and undoubtedly not make things better. Unless, your naive or believe that a fellow family member will suddenly radically change things. That person will most likely prolong the agony and secure the fortunes of the same elites as before. Don’t shocked if that would happen.

The ones that support either of these two. Doesn’t value a democratic choice or a proper succession even. They just want one junta to control and not lose the grip. Peace.

Project Muhoozi Chapter II: Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerubaga promoted to Commander of Land Forces

The son and the rising star of the Republic, Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerubaga have been promoted again. His epic rise is continuing and it was rumoured that he would become the CDF, but he still get a prominent role of the Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF). He becomes the third in the commando structure.

Lt. Gen. Kainerubaga has gone through the ranks like no one before him. The Senior Presidential Advisor on Security and the former commander of the Special Forces Command (SFC). The son of the President will now be in-charge of several of parts of the UPDF. He will have a bigger ability and order more soldiers than ever before.

As the Commander of the Land Forces. The Lt. Gen. Kainerubaga will control the Artillery Division, 2nd Infantry Division, 3rd Infantry Division, 4th Infantry Division, 5th Infantry Division, Armoured Brigade and Motorised Infantry. All of these will be directly under him. This is much more powerful than just commanding the SFC.

This is a step up in his rise. His becoming a powerful figure and have more say. That is a part of “Project Muhoozi”. The President and his allies are boosting him. Not making him a more feasible character or a political person. However, just like Museveni himself came through the ranks of the military. Used his role, had personal armies and also overthrow previous regimes by the guns. He is now teaching his son the art of war.

Because, Museveni knows the power of the gun can control the Republic and silence the critics. That’s why the President is appointing him here and wants him to have the legitimacy this way. Since he has faith in the arms and not in the people. If the President believed in the people and would have ensured a smooth transition.

He wouldn’t have made his son into a high ranking official in the army and the future CDF himself and even the Minister of Defence. That’s what’s coming now. It is only a few more steps now. Before Lt. Gen. Muhoozi is becoming a Minister of Defence like Museveni was at one point too. That’s how things are going and how it seems.

Today, he didn’t become the CDF, but become the THIRD in the command structure of the UPDF. That says it all. Peace.

Project Muhoozi Chapter II: Appointed as the CDF [today’s biggest rumour]

As the days go by and the rumours are spiralling out that Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerubaga, the commander of the Special Forces Command (SFC) and the Senior Presidential Advisor have been elevated again and appointed to become the Commander of Defence Forces (CDF). This is after former CDF David Muhoozi has gotten a Ministerial Post in the current cabinet.

The pendulum is slowing turning in the direction of the son of the President. His getting a bigger and bigger role. It is like his aspiring and turning more vital in the National Resistance Movement and in government in general. His been on sidelines, gotten training and had his strides. He has ordered the guns on the streets and was also involved in the massacre in Kasese. Therefore, he knows how to order death and assault citizens for political gains. That’s what he does.

The son will be as brutal as the father and he doesn’t care. His entitled to everything. If he becomes the CDF in this term. That is to further his cause. That is initiating the succession and showing the truth behind the “Project Muhoozi”. That Muhoozi is the second coming of Christ and the only saviour of the Nation.

While I doubt people will accept this act of monarchy in a Republic. It isn’t automatic of a son to takeover for a father. There will be answers to this and he doesn’t have the standing of his father either. The tyrant got a solid grip and kept that over the years. The son has a feel social media handlers and paid bloggers. However, they will not shell out love, unless they are getting paid and securing their future.

The son has already rose up high in ranks because his the son. Not because his a great general or a good army commander. He has gotten a bigger role and upgraded unit or army port-folio because of the President. His been respected because his part of the first family. Still, it is not like his anyone or anybody with flair, policies or anything to offer.

His just a name and a title. An entitled brat who has gotten life with a silver-spoon and learned how to polish gun-barrels and shoot with rifles. If he becomes the CDF. That’s just a further proof of the slow roll-out of Project Muhoozi and the succession after Yoweri. The state can deny that and the ones in-charge of the propaganda. However, the actions and his meteorical rise in the past. Just shows how real this is and what efforts is being made in his favour.

Nobody else with such a record and past would be considered to run the CDF. It is only because his the son and it shows that family matters more then credibility or ability to govern itself. They have just hand-picked him because of his family ties and prepare him to become President. Museveni was the Minister of Defence before he rebelled. So, it seems like a plan and strategically put him there.

To be able to quell anyone who dares to oppose this regime and have a loyal commander on top. That will do the dirty laundry, because he will profit of it and earn massively when his time comes.

Project Muhoozi never dies, but continues to be alive. Peace.

Opinion: The Special Forces Command got an upgrade

President Museveni today elevated the Commando Battalion of Special Forces Command into a Brigade after passing out over 1,000 commandos who have been undergoing specialised training. The Brigade is in charge of special operations. Let nobody think of messing up with Uganda” (Duncan Abigaba, 08.05.2021)

Yesterday the President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni upgraded the Special Forces Command (SFC). It has gone from being a Command Battalion to a Brigade. The SFC passing out 1256 commando soldiers too. This meaning the SFC will be more important for the President.

The SFC is already commanded by the Presidential Advisor for Special Operations and Commander of the SFC being Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerubaga. Who happens to be the son of the President. This is why it’s suspicious, but giving him more power.

The Son of the President is getting more people to command and order around. This is upgrading his role and also stature in the army. Muhoozi has already gotten titles and roles because of the lineage. Not because his so special or have other abilities.

The SFC have already had more power and participated in the inner-works of the current regime. The SFC was part of the massacre in Kasese. The SFC was the armed forces who invaded the chambers of Parliament. The same forces who has also abducted, kidnapped and even extra judicial killed civilian dissidents in the recent elections.

Therefore, the upgrade and the boosting of SFC is to give Muhoozi more power. A man who already been able to serve injustice and have no accountability for it.

The SFC have violated people, killed civilians and still there been not aftermath. Now the Special Operations under the UPDF is bigger. Giving the son more armed men to follow his lead. They have the ability to do more damage and cause more harm. This isn’t a positive. The pain and suffering served in the recent term. Could turn even worse.

As Muhoozi have now a brigade behind him. These will follow his orders and his words. If he see it fit or righteous. These soldiers can now not only knock-on doors, but brutally attack opposition. These soldiers are trained killers and could easily be used to thwart anyone opposing or trying to demonstrate.

Muhoozi has now been given a huger portfolio. This is a blessing for him and a validation of what he has done to serve his father. The General is giving his Lt. Gen. more men. A clear proposition to continue what he does and approach people the way he does.

This isn’t good news, but worrying news. As the rise of power and usage of military power shows the true vicious signs of this regime. There isn’t anything positive here. The public will suffer and the dissidents especially.

If there will be another Kasese or something similar wouldn’t shock me. When they have promoted and given the Lt. Gen such a role after all of this. This is happening because his the son and the heir. He is rising and getting stronger. Though that is all through the military and not true the support of the people. Peace.

Lt. Gen. Muhoozi commands the SFC again [and expect a vicious operation by the SFC during the polls]

JUST IN: First son Muhoozi Kainerugaba has been re-appointed as SFC commander while Gen Sabiti Muzeyi has been sacked as Deputy IGP and sent back for redeployment. The army is set to release a statement explaining the changes shortly” (NTV Uganda, 16.12.2020).

President son and Presidential Advisor for Special Operations have been redeployed to Special Force Command (SFC). The literal Presidential Guards to operate and be their commander ahead of the polls in 2021. Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba wouldn’t be there and at this position if he wasn’t part of the first family.

This isn’t the first time his the commander of SFC… this is something that he has had control over since 2008 or so. Only a short stint with someone else, until his now reassigned. This a family affair and only giving him back the command and control of these soldiers.

As the commander of this outfit he has ordered them to the Kasase massacre and ambush on the Parliament ahead of the Age Limit. Therefore, this man has no issues to answer with violence and do it without any consequences.

So, this man gets that ability in the end of the year and in the up-coming election. Expect him to answer the pleas of his father and do his bidding. Be brutal and violent ahead of the polls in January 2021. This here will not make things better, but expect it to be worse.

To give way and make it possible for a man like this and with his huge ego. We can just wonder what he will do. If the Special Force Command suddenly intervened in rallies of Bobi Wine and POA. That would make sense. If the SFC blocks roads and ambush hotels. That would be natural at this point and then shift the blame on the victims. Who the SFC attacked and did unwarranted operations too.

Therefore, this redeployment is an direct move to intimidate and show fierce force ahead of the polls. Because, the Lt. Gen have no quarrels to send troops and attack civilians. Instead of securing the territory from outside alien forces. This man goes after self-created enemies and create havoc. The SFC will continue to be known for things like this.

A man that would operate the SFC soldiers in plain clothes within the chambers of Parliament in favour of his father. That’s why this move is a dangerous one. He wants to incite fear and uses a known man and loyal to son to serve that. The President does this to prove a point and the timing is perfect for this.

In this regard, expect the SFC to wreck havoc and intimidate as well. The SFC will be operational and used in favour of the President. They will not act for peace, but to brutalize anyone standing in the way of the President and his party. That is why they are prepared and has Muhoozi at the helm just a month ahead of the polls.

If the Special Force Command suddenly does a brutal and gets violent on the opposition or the citizens who gathers around them. If not they are abducting and arresting someone associated without any warrant or charge. That could easily happen too. Especially, when someone like Lt. Gen. Muhoozi is in control.

This does not deem well. The SFC have already been used viciously and with him commanding it. I can only expect more of it. Peace.

Opinion: Tumwebaze thinks people are naïve… [on succession of the “high above”]

“The time for NRM to declare an alternative presidential candidate will come. You will be shocked that NRM has a pool of bale leaders”Frank Tumwebaze

That the Minister and High-Ranking Official within the National Resistance Movement, Frank Tumwebaze thinks people are stupid. At least think they are naïve and cannot see the realities as they are.

The NRM is built around the sole candidacy of the President. His words are law and his directives are the gospel. He is both the salvation, the redemption and the punisher. All in one package. It is just like the Minister doesn’t know this.

Frankie Boy might think this is brilliant to say in the future there will be another candidate. In the future there will be another Presidential Candidate from the Movement. That will only happen when the current one stops breathing.

When the Minister speaks of pool of leaders. There been plenty with ambition to beat and overcome the President. That is well known, there been Besigye, Mbabazi, Bukenya, Muntu and so forth. There are plenty who been part of the Movement but gone tired of the Sole Candidate and left the building.

The honourable minister knows all of this but acts like it’s not a thing. We all know, that the son is aiming for the throne. Muhoozi wants to become the second-generation President. Just like a royalty. While, Tumwebaze thinks of others, however, he cannot mention him. We know that he has gotten higher and higher roles. That is why the NRM is awaiting his time.

The President is the sole candidate for life. There will be no other as long as his alive. Unless, the army makes a coup d’état. Until then, will the President be golden oldie Yoweri. That is just the way things is. There is no denying in that.

Frank might think he can play with words, because in some sense its true. However, indefinitely it will be the “High Above”. The NRM will not switch away from him. That will be seen as treason. If the honourable had said something else, he would be on the chopping block or become an independent.

The time for a new presidential candidate in the NRM is only when Yoweri stops breathing. Until then, he runs the shop and owns the shop. It is Yoweri’s shop. That is just the mere reality and Frank cannot run away from that.

There will be no sudden changes of leadership here. Museveni is going down the Mugabe route. The indefinite ruler, the survivor and advanced age overlord of the Republic. The party will not change that. He will not suffer the humiliation of seeing Amama or Gilbert on the throne. No, there will be none of that.

Succession will not happen through protocol, but through order of life. Meaning, only when the lifer is gone and vigils in Parliament have been held. In the meanwhile, we can play footsie with the idea, but there is no real challenge. The sole candidate is for life and no one else will dare to question that. If they do, then they are gone in a hot minute. Peace.

Opinion: Muhoozi’s entitlement oozes in concern with possible dialogue with Bobi Wine

The Lieutenant General Muhoozi Kainerubaga, the son of the President entitlement has been shown all week. His presence and his stance on social media, as well as his paid handlers to promote the “Project Muhoozi” is a drive to stand as a future candidate. This combined with his sentiment of talks with People Power Movement and Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine. Just shows his lack of finesse and understanding of it all.

His grown in the State House, his a Presidential Advisor for Special Operatives and former leader of the Special Force Command. His military training, but has never represented anyone, other than being part of the clan and being next in line to the Ssabagabe of Rwakitura. This is really it. The man should know what troubles, what issues the state has inflicted on Bobi Wine. However, that is not obvious to the man, whose living in a glorified bubble. Certainly either in Kololo or somewhere else in affluent suburbs of Kampala.

Muhoozi should praise the Gods for the reluctant response of Bobi Wine. Bobi Wine could have answered with all guns, he could have retorted with a fierce message. The one scorned by the state is him and his people. He is charged by the state in various of criminal cases, he is charged with treason and awaiting trail for dozens of them. Bobi Wine has been tortured and needed healing, even was blocked for a while to travel to the United States for treatment.

Muhoozi should also not forget all the associates, all the activists behind bars. All the ones who sudden vanished, killed and disappeared. The ones who is close to Bobi Wine get caught and suddenly stop breathing. Because, that is what the state does to them at the moment. Either in the pen or dead. This is the manner of which the state approach him and his people.

Muhoozi when he speaks of war and peace, his father and the agencies around him is in direct warfare against People Power. They are assaulting and directly using all arms of government to oppress and silence them. It is not like Bobi Wine doesn’t know that or doesn’t feel that. Not like he can perform, have meetings or be active. Muhoozi can play a fool, but that’s not cool.

Lt. Gen. Muhoozi is a bubble, a bubble of entitlement and braggadocios flair. That is who he is and seems to be. He got handlers promoting his every breath and former stints. While, the ones rising with popularity is going through hell and fire. The hell and fire created by the state, which let’s the Lt. Gen self-promote himself because of his lineage and not because of anything he has produced or created himself.

Bobi Wine deserves credit for his retort. However, he shouldn’t discuss or participate in talks. Unless, the state changes it ways and the way it oppress his associates. Since, there are to many lives lost, to many behind bars and to many hurt. Just because of association and not even acts of criminality. This is why Muhoozi should think for a little moment, but don’t anticipate that. Since, his is so shielded and highly regarded because the Ssabagabe elevated his stature to the stars.

So, Muhoozi do yourself a favour. If you want to talk peace. Get the commandos and the officers around Bobi Wine to back-down, get the soldiers, LDUs and the police officers to not assault, kill and arrest civilians in association with him. If you do that, then there might be a will. Especially, if the ones killing and torturing civilians get punished in courts of law. That would be even better…

However, Mr. Muhoozi, I know you will never do that. Because, then you would offend the Don. Peace.

Opinion: Muhoozi promotes the “Muhoozi Project” and verifies Tinyefuza

Some evil people coined this phrase to try and destroy us! But trust my generation to convert every curse into a blessing! Thank you Ugandans!” (Muhoozi Kainerugba, 04.03.2020).

Waiting is the hardest thing in life. Especially, when someone as associated, trusted and internally knowing the National Resistance Army/Movement (NRA/M) as General David Sejusa aka Tinye aka Tinyefuza. Who got international recognition and got into exile after releasing a letter to the Daily Monitor on the 7th May 2013 on the “Muhoozi Project”. Certainly, the prodigal son wants to be more than the gatekeeper. Seeing how his mother and father is ruling the Republic. Also fearing how he will be deemed when his parents are gone.

Muhoozi Kainerugba is the son of the President and the First Lady(which is also the Minister of Education). Even if Janet isn’t his birth-mother, as that is Hope Rwaheru from Fort Portal. Birth in Loitokitok General hospital on the 24th April 1974.

His the next in line, but this is a Presidency and not a Kingdom. Even if the Ssabagabe of Rwakitura farm and all the others in the Republic is his father. That doesn’t initially make him automatically to the crown. Even if he coins the project as positive. Still, at this point its political fiction. Which could be written some fancy author and printed by Pambazuka/Famahu or something.

Here’s a key thing:

In the letter, Gen Sejjusa asks the security services to investigate allegations that some military and political leaders in the country are being targeted for assassination for opposing what has come to be known as the ‘Muhoozi Project’. The project is in reference to President Yoweri Museveni’s alleged plan to have his son succeed him when he retires. The letter also says that some elements within te top army leadership staged an attack on Mbuya Barracks in March this year so as to frame others on treason charges. Some of the people targeted, according to Sejusa include himself and Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi, among others” (Red Pepper – ‘DEVELOPING: Red Pepper Still Under Siege, Management To Address Press Conference’ 20.05.2013).

It is really a magic that Muhoozi is speaking of coining the “Muhoozi Project” evil. The authorities and the regime made this an evil intent, as it closed Red Pepper and Daily Monitor who exposed the matter. It sent the General Sejusa into exile. Further more it created even more hurt, which haven’t been verified nor proven, as there are several more people who got into trouble by publishing and unleashing this to the public.

Muhoozi Project is most likely alive now. The son has the keys, the power are within reach and he wants it. He has dismissed it in the past, but shows his true intent. There is no denying it now. His even trying to spin it to a positive. Like there was no fuzz, no issues with the release of it and not like it wasn’t from a credible source from within. That is why it had to be shutdown by the authorities as quickly as possible.

In 2020, Muhoozi is reviving the Muhoozi Project. If his trying to what is said in the letter in 2013. Than, we can anticipate the ones who stand in his way could be assassinated and gotten rid off. As long as he get the throne. We know his military trained and been leading the Special Force Command. Therefore, he has trained personnel to help him reach that.

So, if he wants to speak of evil, maybe him and the SFC should answer for its connection to the massacre in Kasese. That would have been kind to do so.

However, don’t anticipate it, as entitlement, also braggadocios attempt of self-righteousness. That is what his twitter post was today. This is why, we need to address the nonsense and call him out. Peace.

Opinion: Is ‘Project Muhoozi’ resurfacing?

I beg to question, what is so special about Maj. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba? What is so unique and such leadership skills he has that should make Youths and Ugandan citizens interested in this man? There are dozens of younger leaders within the Republic, which has more swagger, more profound qualities of leadership and has a positive public standing. None of the above is key features with this man.

The only thing and the only reason this is a piece and the reason why I write this. Because suddenly the Sunday Vision has a main story, that the Youths wants this man. I have a hard time believing it. At this point if it was Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine or even of the other renegade Members of Parliament. Has bigger standing in the public, than the son of the current President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. That Muhoozi is famous and known, is not strange, he is part of the leadership and is a Presidential Advisor. He is also a former leader of the Special Forces Command. Therefore, he has been in key roles on occasions and also gotten military training and teachings in specialized school in the United States. So it is not like he has no skills, but being a profound leader of the Republic. He is not and has no entitlement to be.

Even if the President of current believes so and trying to make it seem so. But that is only in his delusional mind. The makeshift of trying to forge a scheme to prepare next elections for Maj. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba is insane, but also shows the lack of understanding of certain key elements that are lingering in the public. The people are already tired of the father and his rule, why would they trust the son to be better or be less of crook in charge? It’s true they are two different persons and theoretically be totally different. However, he has been within the reach of power all his life, seen how his father has maneuvered and acted. Without a doubt, the son will do the same as father. Treat the Republic as he playground and crush the ones who stands in his way. He has already on few occasions proven the quality of SFC and used it even to exile the Rwenzururu King to the Baganda.

Therefore, I doubt people want a man like this, the only reason for his rise and his position, is not for his brilliance, not for his street-smarts or his public persona. Do he really have one worth considering? Even certain NRM historicals has more of a public standing and deeper roots in society, than the son of Yoweri. Let’s be clear. The youths who made this show, we’re most likely paid for it and their gear was made by the Museveni family themselves. To try to make it look like there are people who wants him.

The only time Muhoozi mattered a lot was back in 2013, when Gen. David Sejusa or Tinyefuza who dropped a few dossiers too Red Pepper and Daily Monitor, which initially was closed and suspended by authorities within May 2013. Part of the Second Letter from the General was this, which is striking in itself: “Of course it takes the lead off the can and its not only bad for the boy but actually dangerous to that ambition. Thats the truth. But of course its like the “tower of babel” you wonder if they they understand even what they are saying.( A distinction should be made between Muhozi the man and Muhozi the UPDF officer. I personally would never for even a second discuss the affairs of that young man as a person, for it would be wrong and unacceptable. But then once you make him a general in the army, he ceases to be a private person in that regard and must pass certain scrutiny. )” (General David Sejusa, May 2013).

So if you have forgotten the whole thing, this is even as revealing of the long-term plan of it all: “The government’s anger was prompted by a story in the paper said to reveal details of a plan by senior officials to assassinate rivals opposed to a scheme by President Yoweri Museveni to arrange for his son to succeed him in office. By exposing deep rifts within the ruling establishment, the paper has shaken Uganda’s political establishment to the core. The Monitor quoted extensively from a letter by a senior intelligence officer, General David Sejusa, calling for an investigation into claims that the government is planning to target opponents of the so-called “Muhoozi Project,” an alleged plan to pave the way for 39-year-old Brigadier Kainerugaba Muhoozi (pictured left), commander of an elite army unit, to take over the presidency. The state-owned Uganda Communications Commission (which controls licensing) warned radio stations that they would be shut down for airing the story of Gen. Sejusa’s letter” (Batanda, 2013).

Now in the 2017, the state and agencies are clearly preparing something again. Since they even uses their Newspaper to prop up the son. The son whose supposed to have no ambition and not wanting to become President(he said that earlier this year, not that anyone believed the man). Now, there are Youth prepared for seeing him in. It just happens as the lifting of the age limit is prepared for his father. Just so perfectly and the timing so striking.

That the Muhoozi Project surfaces like an old fish. The old fish is now stinking up the place with the family succession, to a man with no merit or finesse in public. There isn’t anything that could be said about Muhoozi that gives way to say, he should be our next leader. Other than he is the son of previous one. Like that is good fix, just look at the Democratic Republic of Congo and Joseph Kabila. He is such a lovely fellow and statesmen, who has no trouble killing and creating insurgency to stay in power. Not like we need another country with that issue, just because Muhoozi is following the bloodline of Museveni.

I would not be surprised if the 2013 Project came to life and lit up the place. Put some petrol into the steamy age-limit debates and just proves the entitlement of the Museveni-Clan. Since he own the removal of the Age Limit from the Constitution. Clearly, he doesn’t give a fig about how people sees him or his rule anymore. He just wants to rule and if that meaning to secure his family set, when he is left. Then be it. But Muhoozi is a non-character and nobody who seems like a candidate for leadership. He is just there because of his father. There aren’t anything of his persona that says, well, he could be “good one” even. He just have too, since he is already there.

All of that is nonsense and I had to bring up the May 2013 drama around Red Pepper, Daily Monitor and Gen. Sejusa, because it was said to be “Project Museveni” by the government back-then. Clearly, they we’re lying. But that is not so weird too. It is not strange that Museveni wants his son to someday take his place, but that doesn’t mean he has a right to do so. There are enough men and woman who has more public standing, natural leaders or even has the public persona that can be trusted compared to him.

With time there will not be less of leaders and people who could contest for the role, enough people with leadership experience and public standing to take the place of Museveni. There are so many who could and who deserves to try. The Project Muhoozi is back in full steam, by the demands of the old man, not because the people really want him. It is just propaganda by the state who wants people to believe so. Peace.

Maj. Gen. Muhoozi, says “he has no ambition for Presidency”, but the meteorically rise seems like ploy to usher him in!

No, I do not have the ambition to be President. I am very happy being in the military and that is where I intend to stay for some time,” Maj Gen Muhoozi said (NBS TV Uganda, 31.01.2017).

Major. General Muhoozi Kainerubaga spoke out in an interview yesterday, not that it out of water now that he has gone through the ranks in the military, had years of specialized training in the United States and we’re running the Special Forces Command or the Flying Squad. That he is the son of the President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, do show that family matters and the reason for the meteorically rise. Maj. Gen. Kainerubaga can claim otherwise, but deep in his heart he knows that is the reason.

Muhoozi Kainrubaga has been a project in the making, that when revealed documentation from Gen. David Sejusa aka Tinyefuza who leaked it to the Daily Monitor. “Gen. Sejusa has kicked up a storm after the Daily Monitor last week published a letter he wrote to the director of the Internal Security Organisation, asking that he investigates claims of plots to assassinate top government officials opposed to the “Muhoozi Project”” (Splash Radio, 13.05.2013). So the questionable rise to power and to become a Senior Presidential Advisor after years inside the army. Therefore, the letter didn’t just stir troubles for Gen. Sejusa, but also closed the Daily Monitor after the release of the letter. Like the Government and Army didn’t like the release of this information.

So if the army and government didn’t like this internal plan come into the public. Than, why was their an issue with the closure of a newspaper and the leadership? One of who is today the Presidential Spokesperson Don Wanyama, who know is crony instead of an opposition voice inside the Monitor journalist.

In 2016 to the Observer he said:

As you heard, I don’t have the ambition to be president. I am very happy being in the military and that is where I intend to stay for some time. It [Muhoozi Project] doesn’t exist, non-existent – that is a red herring. You have never heard of a message where I promote myself, it is always from the promotions board. That is the process in the military” (David Muhumuza – The Observer, 25.05.2016).

So that the Maj. Gen. Muhoozi could easily now be the giant plan the President has in the making, as the years goes and his age sinks in, he needs somebody to carry the torch. Still, the Ugandan Republic isn’t a family company or LLC. Even if the President acts of the state funds and Bank of Uganda is his coffers.

That their has been less of questionable reporting of the acts of the Flying Squad or the Special Force Command as they have violently oppressed people, can be understood that the Maj. Gen. Muhoozi has even had a close relationship and it could be romantic with Journalist Sheila Nduhukire, who has traveled with the general to Somalia and other UPDF missions with him. So the comforting news instead of questing the UPDF and rise to power, haven’t really been there.

Therefore, the son of the President except for the dossier released by Gen. Sejusa has skated by and enjoyed the rise. While other in his generation haven’t gotten to his place or had the possibilities. They have all been left behind or is still in lower level in the army. If it wasn’t for being groomed and made ready for bigger stage. The army is also so he should be rougher and experienced in battle, as the father was a bush-warrior and general. The father wants the same for his son and therefore the Special Force Command was to check if he could do operations and could carry out assaults on the ones who needed to be silenced.

However, he continues to play the role of I have “no plan” and doesn’t want to be President. Still, the rise to power and the senior adviser role is made for him to be the next in line. Gen. Muhoozi, the Presidents son certainly has the initial hope to keep the torch lit. Still, this is not family business, even if the President acts like it is.

President Museveni as all fathers wants the best for his family and sons. That means that Gen. Muhoozi has gotten special treatment and own parts of the army to lead. Therefore, he went from Special Force Command into the Senior Adviser role, proves that the father wants him to learn the political game too. So that he knows the guns and commando operations. Now he will learn to venture into politics.

So this is yet another step into the reigns and the control of the National Resistance Movement, as the father and son plans away to make it natural change. How it will happen, but surely Gen. Muhoozi has no plans to dwindle into a village and be a farmer, just like the father has no plans to run one of his farms. As the NRM Regime plans to subtly subdue and suddenly over night change from Museveni to Muhoozi. Like we didn’t know and forgotten the dossier in 2013.

The Presidency in Uganda isn’t a family matter, even if the current President thinks so. He can even switch the constitution and amend it. So that Muhoozi by law has the rights, soon the President might do as they have worked for long change the age-limit. Museveni has no legitimacy and would use all tricks to stay in power. Therefore, using his son as sideshow could possibly be a sort of play of the old man. Still, he would also see that Muhoozi takes over for him when he is done.

We can just wait and see, if like the first lady becoming a minister in the cabinet, the son could soon in the next shuffle in Parliament become a Minister for Defense, so that he follows the family line. Museveni was a Minister for Defense, before becoming a rebel and going against the then Obote government. Peace.
