“Now the issue of the standby generator group, that one I am handling with Muhoozi Kainerubaga and his group. This issue of Muhoozi is partly due to the weaknesses of the NRM” (…) “Within the army itself, there was also some corruption & Gen Muhoozi Kainerubaga had been very strict on that. So that’s why I saw that there was some sort of resistance movement within the resistance Movement” – President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni (31.05.2023).
Well, well, well, the project continues and succession is sooner or later in order. That is very clear. Because, the President since 1986 haven’t spoken like this before. Not to my recollection. It is telling and says a lot.
President Museveni is now preparing people for the reign of his son. He is saying that his son is capable leader and a commander. It doesn’t have to be true or honest even. No, it just have to be portrayed that way. The President have to make people believe that his son is ready and able. However, that might not be true and wouldn’t be the case.
He wants us to believe there is an internal fraction or a wing, which is resisting. If they really where resisting. They wouldn’t all have been sitting in the garden and talking to the President would they? He would have acted like he has done to the NRM MPs who has defied orders and voted against the will of the “high above”. So, please I don’t buy this story…
I would buy this story, if it was leaked and suddenly a newsroom, a newspaper or a media house was stormed, raided and not allowed to publish stories for a week or so. That would have made this believable. Since that what happen when the news broke out about “Project Muhoozi”.
This here is just to fairytale-y and not so trustworthy. You know… it lack substance and character. A lot of hot air, but not a cup of coffee or a taste of tea. No, the President is trying to fool us and acting like Muhoozi is bloody brilliant.
We all know he isn’t that clever or witty. We know he doesn’t have the character or the charisma to pull it off. His only mentioned and able to get public traction because his pays for it and hires people to his MK Movement. The moment the wells runs dry and he got no drinks. His buddy will go to the next gig and find themselves a new master. They are hired guns and soldiers of fortune. These folks won’t be there out of moral values or belief in the cause. No, they are only there, because they hope Muhoozi is the next meal-ticket.
Museveni knows all of this and can read the room. He wants to shake up the NRM party and make a fool out of the entitled elites, which are surrounding him. The President wants them to act and follow his command. That’s why his speaking this way and making a mockery attempt of a make believe scenario. Like there is a powerful wing with the NRM for Muhoozi. Yes, there are some behind him and some has been “sponsored” to run as MPs by Muhoozi. However, his still a marginal player and only with a burdensome name…
Muhoozi will take the credit and feel vindicated by his father. His father didn’t only mention him, but give him a pat on his back. That must make the son giddy. Nevertheless, we know the gig and the reason for this. It is to prepare and usher in a new era. This isn’t done out of the goodwill of the President heart or anything.
No, this is only done to give way to Muhoozi and slowly let the tide turn his way. That’s the gig here and it’s so obvious. Gen. Sejusa warned us all and now Museveni is playing ball. Peace.
