It seems Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba’s presidential aspirations will need a lot of work to materialize if his father President Museveni’s words are anything to go by.
Gen Muhoozi has now severally made it clear how he harbors presidential ambitions via his Twitter page.
Museveni however during an interview with Kenyan journalist Sophia Wanuma said that Presidents are not voted via Twitter.
They are rather elected by the people and therefore anybody who wants to rule the country has to be sieved.
Once he’s deemed fit, they can then be let to have a go at the country’s top most office.
Museveni also further talked about his son’s erratic behavior on the social media app.
Muhoozi has on several occasions made comments deemed reckless, controversial and unfit for a serving military officer.
A highlight of these saw him a few weeks ago claim how it would take him just 2 weeks together with his army to bring Nairobi and Kenya down to its knees.
Widespread criticism and backlash poured in for Muhoozi forcing Museveni to apologize on his behalf.
The President further revealed that Muhoozi is going to go off Twitter as this is a conversation they have had.
He however said that tweeting is not one of Africa’s biggest problems.
This is despite signing a Computer Misuse Act into law last week.
“Gen. Muhoozi will leave Twitter. We have had this discussion. Twitter, however, is not a problem. The problem is what you are tweeting.
Africa has got a lot of problems. Tweeting is not one of them.
Africa has got a lot of problems. Tweeting is not one of them.”
The President also said that it wouldn’t have been a problem if his son was tweeting about sports or any other topic that is not controversial.
Talking about other countries and the partisan politics of Uganda is something he should not and will not do.
