Muhoozi Kainerugaba, the son of Uganda’s president Yoweri Museveni and commander of Ugandan forces, is far from ceasing his attacks against Kenya.
Muhoozi irked Kenyans after saying that it will only take him two weeks to take over Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city.
Kenyans however did not take his threat/joke lying down but hit back at the first son to a point that he even conceded defeat.
“KOT, I forgive you all for the insults you have hurled against me. Please let’s work together to make East Africa great!!!” he said in a tweet on Monday night.
“I would never beat up the Kenyan army because my father told me never to attempt it! So our people in Kenya should relax!” he added.
Muhoozi however continued with his threats on Tuesday saying that the colonial borders must fall.
“To all compatriots, fellow country men and women. Uganda and Kenya. I say we must all conquer our fears. These colonial borders must fall!” he said.
As much as his tweets seem to be just for fun, concerns have been raised with people saying they should not be taken lightly.
“There is no way the General is drunk today too. Seems he is serious and planning something,” a netizen responded on Muhoozi’s tweet.
“History repeats itself? Uganda’s Generals seeking to control Kenyan territory: 46 years after Idi Amin, it’s now Gen Muhoozi! That’s why Kenyans can’t take it lightly!” Ugandan opposition leader Kizza Besigye said.
“I have noted that tweets by Muhoozi speak to boundary issues. As the representative of The Fisherfolk community from the Promised Island, which very closely borders Uganda in Lake Victoria, I am urging the Kenya Defence Forces and security agencies not to treat these, as normal.” Silas Jakakimba warned.
