“We shall not tolerate indiscipline in the army. If you cannot perform well, we shall axe you and create room for disciplined and competent officers” – President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni (New Vision – ‘Be disciplined, army told’ 02.12.2006).
There is so much wiggle-room and allowed actions by General Muhoozi Kainerubaga. A man can be horny and be a man-whore, all he wants. He can be insensitive to the other gender and want sexual satisfaction. However, that doesn’t fit a man of the stature of General and a Senior Presidential Advisor on Special Operations. That’s who he is and his demeaning people and the other gender online.
The twitter account of Muhoozi is a quagmire for himself and anyone surrounding him. His wife should be horrified, unless she’s okay that a man is thirsty for other women in the open. She’s maybe well versed in his introgressions and nothing is new to her. Still, the humiliation must be deafening and hurting.
Yesterday’s long rant of bravado is really not unique, but as a public figure and a man who wants to assert into the future leadership roles. A man who clearly has a streak of chewing people and deny it later. Because, we know he randomly professes his love to his wife. Though, the way he spreads pictures and talks of the ladies, shows that he has an another side too.
As a soldier and former Commander of Land Forces he should know what the UPDF says about itself: “UPDF is a nonpartisan force, national in character, patriotic, professional, disciplined, productive and subordinate to the civilian authority as established under the constitution” (UPDF). Certainly these words cannot be written about Muhoozi. He cannot even restrain himself online…
How is he in person? When his this character online?
Someone needs to deactivate his twitter account and restrain him from social media. His so indisciplined. His a laughingstock and only demeaning his wife and himself in it. Practically, he can be soon in the realms of Computer Misuse (Amendment) Act of 2022. Which is not to drop unsolicited information and pictures… ironically, I doubt these ladies who he posted wanted this sort of public display.
It is really foolish and Muhoozi should listen to Ashanti in his mansion. Because, he needs some guidance and the father has clearly not been a good teacher. Since his not isn’t following protocol or sincere advice. His just speaking vile and being a brat online.
Muhoozi is calling the UPDF “My Army” and is it this indisciplined now? Is that okay for the Commander-in-Chief and President for Life? Is this what the UPDF has become?
Because, Muhoozi isn’t resembling an honest actor, a leader or a trustworthy character overall. His a faux revolutionary and populist. When he has nothing else that empty boosts of his ego and yesterday he clearly wanted to get laid. That’s his prerogative, but not a good look for the whole world watch.
The General should know better, but we can see that a General from the UPDF is openly indisciplined. That’s not what the State House or the big boosting “Project Muhoozi” people wants. Unless, they are fine with a man-whore and a loose-cannon. Because that who he is and they will defend it. Peace.
The death and demise of Gen. Elly Tumwiine was all created by himself. That people rebuke and spoke ill of him after the fact. This is just a reaction to the life he lived and the purpose of his own achievements. Tumwiine was a reflection and a representation of what the National Resistance Army and what the National Resistance Movement had become.
That President Yoweri Tibuhurwa Kaguta Museveni is trying to rectify or change the narratives are commendable. But what else is his supposed to do? He knows what is coming for him. The eulogies of Museveni will be detrimental and mirrored of the ones written for Mugabe. That’s why he saw what happened to Tumwiine and his worried about his own legacy.
A man of his tribe, cause and belief. Tumwiine is a man who stood Museveni near and was a trusted one. A man who fought, continued to fight and showed loyalty. That’s why the brutality, arrogance and all other things doesn’t matter to the President. Because, Tumwiine served and did so diligently. That’s what matters to him. This is why he wants him to be remembered for his philanthropy, playing music, being a church-goer and whatnot. He don’t want him to be remembered for his relentless contribution to oppressive behaviour and lack of rule of law. No, he wants the positivity and the publicity of a hero.
Alas, he might be a hero in the circle of Museveni. That doesn’t make him heroic in the pubs or in the hinterland. No, they have seen what happens when they cross or happens to be stepped on. They know what has happened to their kin and their children. The vicious and vindictive nature of Tumwiine wasn’t all about peace. He didn’t mind to use violence and use brutal retribution. When that sort of man dies. People won’t mourn, but they will celebrate. Because, they lost one brute and villain. He was a villain that the President needed, but the people? They could have been without him and his actions. There are to many scorned, family members lost and people harmed for life. Which the President seems to neglect.
“We all shall die, eventually. That, therefore, cannot be a matter for celebrating whether you
like the person in question or not. People who do that are deceiving themselves” (Museveni, 05.10.2022).
This here is both true and false at the same time. We all shall die, that’s a fact for everyone living. However, you cannot speak about how folks or people will react about your death. It depends on how you chose to live and how you conducted yourself. If you were friendly or a despicable person. That will be reflected on when you die. People are not deceiving themselves, but everyone shows remorse and mourning differently, also depending on their statute and their legacy as a whole. Just like some people praised the Queen Elizabeth, others was right in questioning her colonial acts and partaking in the usage of the British Empire. Therefore, it’s right that people write ill of the bad past that Tumwiine himself was a part of and acted upon. Not only the glory stories, which your text only reflects. Because, you want the same sort of glorification when your end is near…
Museveni’s arrogance comes really forward here:
“Tumwiine was an early achiever in education, a freedom fighter, an artist, a philanthropist and a wealth-creator (big farmer). If some people do not appreciate such people, it could be that they are either uninformed (ignorant) or they are parasites (want affluence without working). Such people should be guided or condemned if they persist in their negativity. The roads everybody rides on, the schools, the electricity stations that generate electricity for the night-club goers to have transnights and tweet the following day etc., are from the sweat of the wealth creators like Tumwiine, not to forget the peace the tweeters are using to express their malice. Go and send tweets in Mogadishu, if you think peace is not important” (Museveni, 05.10.2022).
He acts like we should cherish people who acted with viciousness and vindictiveness. That’s why President Museveni is honour him after his death. It’s all for the ploy of self-service. Tumwiine served him and was loyal to his causes. That’s why his writing with spite like this. Calling the ones who questions Tumwiine Uninformed (ignorant), which he wants to keep people in really. If people was ignorant, they would have praised and glorified him. Alas, that wasn’t the case. They are informed and know what he did in his time. The actions of Tumwine, the families who has lost members because of him. The families who has been torn-apart or has relatives that was caught in “Safe-Houses”. That was all done on the watch and orders of Tumwiine. These are not eulogies or being referred here. Not in a manner, which represents them.
That’s why Museveni is losing a step here and he does it boldly. It isn’t strange to see either. When you know this will resemble what could happen when it’s his turn. Which he should fear now. If people speak about Tumwiine like this. How will they speak of Museveni? He should be frightful and in disbelief. Because, his propaganda and his control of the narrative will be lost. Just like he has twisted and turned on the stories of the predecessors. After his demise. People will speak any which way about him too.
You see how thinks and considers people thoughts when he ends the paragraph with “go and send tweets in Mogadishu”. That’s his rebuttal. Instead of understanding or seeing the pain or the suffering of the his own people. No, they are just supposed to follow the “Correct Line” and be part of his vision. If you don’t follow him. Your an uninformed person and a parasite. That’s just disgusting rhetoric and shows his character to the world.
Museveni should get the insight and the understanding of the people. Instead he wants to be above and beholden on the premise of his own stature. That’s for the reasons of him being in power for so long. He considers his own reasoning and mind above everyone else. That’s why Museveni cannot see or grasp the resentment of his own population. This has been brewing over the years. The NRM and President Museveni should really study it, but they think every solution is bound by heavy weaponry. That’s why they don’t care or pay it no mind.
For being an old man and a supposed statesman. His certainly not having the ear to the ground or listening to the pleas of his public. He might not like the sentiment or the way it’s communicated. However, he should look into himself and what his done. When they could write this about his ally Tumwiine. What can the same fellas right about him?
Well… you can just imagine and some have the eulogies prepared. They have the material and all the stories in the vault. So, His Excellency should listen, but we know he never does. If he did listen. He might have gotten some insights that could broaden his perspective and give him a sort of a reality check. That could be good for him, but we know he prefer being in a trusted bubble and not go outside of it. This is prevalent and it’s becoming a part of who he is. Peace.
After the recent days of Tweets from now General Muhoozi Kainerubaga. The father has intervened and written an apology to the Kenyan people. President Yoweri Tibuhurwa Kaguta Museveni was forced to do something and he did. He had to save face for the family and his regime. Because, his son who is in a few years 50 years old had acted scandalous.
Muhoozi should know better, but his arrogance and entitlement, he don’t know better. There is no constraint or abilities to silence him. He is a braggadocios being and a proud one at that. Muhoozi was born with a silver-spoon and he gotten massive fortunes because of his father. It is not earned on merits or qualifications. Everything has befallen him because of his father. All we know of him and the reasons for his promotions is only out of family ties. The case of Muhoozi is the stereotypical nepotism and nothing else.
That Museveni has written an apology is following where the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Press Release from the day before. These two are both trying to downplay and hope for no aftermath after the Tweets. That’s the reason this happen. It is really interesting in the apology itself that Museveni says this:
“I ask our Kenyan brothers and sisters to forgive us for tweets sent by General Muhoozi, former Commander of Land Forces here, regarding the election matters in that great country. It is not correct for Public officers, be they civilian or military, to comment or interfere in any way, in the internal affairs of brother countries” (…) “Why, then, promote him to full General after these comments? This is because this mistake is one aspect where he has acted negatively as a Public officer. There are, however, many other positive contributions the General has made and can still make. This is a time-tested formula –discourage the negative and encourage the positive. Very sorry, ndugu zetu Wakenya” (Museveni, 05.10.2022).
We know it’s ironic that Museveni writes these words, like we don’t know what his armies have done in neighbour countries. As if, we don’t know what he has done in the past and toppled regimes to install Museveni friendly leaders there. That’s why it’s sort of hypocritical of him to write this. Yes, his right about that part, but his also the wrong man to write these words. I don’t believe them, because of Museveni’s own past and those ghosts should haunt to eternity.
The other part is just merely insulting, that someone can breach the UPDF Act, act scandalous and spread harmful propaganda. While his still promoted for doing so. His losing the title and being a direct army commander, but his becoming a General at the same time. That’s why the son isn’t really punished, but is instead promoted. If a civilian, an activists or an opposition wrote something similar. He would be bound by law and be in legal trouble right now. He wouldn’t get a fancier suit and be held in high regards.
No one with common sense should believe this apology. Yes, the father has responded and tried to save face. However, the damage is done and its obvious. There is also fear in the Republic of the power of Muhoozi and his insider connections. Since, the MoFA Press Release didn’t mention him or any of his characterizations.
A 48 year old man lacks manner, honour or the understanding of his role. That is so poignant after all of this. If he had felt the rank and office, which he was residing in. He wouldn’t have risked it and acted like he did. However, he don’t have to care, because there is no consequences to him. His only getting elevated by failing. That’s the gist of him here.
Next time he fails. Maybe he will be promoted to the Commander of Defence Forces (CDF). That’s the only thing missing now. Before he resigns from his military roles and the UPDF. This is what his missing of titles and roles at this very moment.
Muhoozi knows he can get away with everything. There is no oversight or transparency about his activity. His just allowed to operate and without any sort of scrutiny. That’s why he has such bravado. Peace.
After days of causing controversy on Twitter, Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerubaga has been promoted to a General. He is now Gen. Muhoozi Kainerubaga by just living and breathing. There is no efforts or achievements, neither is there any progression or actions made on the battlefield. Because of the humiliation and bad press. The father had to act and he lost the position of being an army commander, but keeping the title of Senior Presidential Advisor for Special Operations. Meaning Muhoozi still have access and power.
Gen. Muhoozi have gotten a superior rise to become General. This progression has happened quickly and it’s not on merits. No, this is just family matters. That’s why Muhoozi has now gotten a title, but has demoted in the Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF).
The father has promoted and demoted him at the same time. That’s because of how his acting as a public figure and army commander. Yes, his out of the army now and could practically run for office in 2026. That’s something the 48 year old man wants to do. Even if he has no oral skill, obvious popularity or achievements worth noting. His just another General with no party or civilian support. The only civilians really supporting is either on his pay-roll or dubious character selling a nightmare.
While Muhoozi become a General. If others in the army had acted like him or if civilians had tweeted like him. We know the Computer Misuse Act would have been used to charge him. The authorities would have gone after him and he wouldn’t have seen tomorrow. If he was an ordinary person he would have been treated brutally, but in the end been released on bail. While only having a brief window to go into exile. That’s what happens to other people speaking openly like him.
If he thinks this is a winning formula. Well, his just a General boosting his ego like a Kabuleta. He is all out there, but have no natural progression or sort of crowds following him. No, his just the egocentric and self-centred as always. This will not stop him or wherever his planning to go.
We can anticipate the rise of the Team MK, as he calls it. Where the National Progressive Movement (NPM) becomes a thing or some sort of similar organization made out of thin-air. Just like his rise from soldier to a general. There is nothing that has been ordinary or through proper protocol. No one else has risen this fast and with lack of merit.
This is surely to boost his ego, as he lost the rank of being the Commander of Land Forces, but keeping the Senior Presidential Advisor is showing his still on government payroll. He will still have power and be within the realm of influence. It isn’t like his outsmarted or kicked out totally. No, he was promoted for a reason and to make him more prestigious.
We all should see the “Project Muhoozi” for what it is. Even if the Twitter tweets has failed him right now. He still have not really lost anything. Yes, no one can take him serious or see him as an army commander. It is easy to see that Muhoozi is far from a capable leader. He don’t have the ability to see himself or reflect on his actions.
That’s why we know… this will have internal ramification and the nepotism of Muhoozi will haunt the President. That he has done this with his wife and his son. Just like he has done with in-laws and other family members too. So, it is not like Muhoozi alone with getting a favourable title and work from within.
However, his just the one who has rose from a civilian to a general within no time. He has gone through the ranks and been promoted rapidly. While there is no sort of proof that he was worthy of any of these, expect he got it because of his father. That’s why this isn’t really it.
Muhoozi is a disgrace and by acting so he got promoted. That’s the story and it’s stupid. Peace.
