President Yoweri Museveni’s son General Muhoozi Kainerugaba has caused yet another Twitter storm after claiming that Uganda’s military is greater than Kenya’s Defense Forces.
Muhoozi who is keen on succeeding his father come 2026 on Friday, January 20, took to social media saying that Uganda can capture Nairobi in less than one week.
“Some Kenyans fear us because they know our military is greater than theirs. Our Army can capture Nairobi in one week!” Muhoozi said in a Tweet.
It is worth noting that this is not the first time President Yoweri Museveni’s son has tweeted about capturing Nairobi.
In October 2022, the General claimed that it would take him, and the Ugandan army less than two weeks to take control of the country’s capital city, Nairobi.
“It wouldn’t take us, my army and me, two weeks to capture Nairobi,” Muhoozi tweeted.
The tweet elicited sharp reactions from both Kenya’s government and Uganda forcing Muhoozi to come clean on the allegations.
While he said the tweet was only a joke, Museveni’s son was then serving in the Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) was demoted.
Museveni later promoted his son to General, the highest title in the army, but left him without a job description.
But the 48-year-old now wants his old job as CDF back, at least as per his tweets.
Muhoozi, who has in the recent past boldly announced that he would run for the highest seat to appease his mother appears to have made up his mind about succeeding his aging father.
In what appeared that he will be on the ballot in the 2026 elections, Museveni’s son said he will only vie for the presidency only if his father okays him.
“If my father allows me to stand in 2026, we will shock the entire country with the amount of support we have,” he said.
