Threats of an invasion of Kenya by Museveni's son are finally met by action from the Ugandan Army

The General Muhoozi Kainerugaba, Museveni's son, had tweeted that there were plans to invade Kenya, but the Uganda People's Defence Forces (UPDF) had stated that there were none. According to Brigadier General Felix Kulagiye, spokesman for the UPDF, Muhoozi lacks the authority to declare war on any nation.

The UPDF spokeswoman made it clear that specific procedures must be followed when announcing an invasion or any other military operation. According to him, only the head of state and parliament have the authority to declare war.

The public outcry against Museveni's son came from both Kenyan and Ugandan citizens. Due to his careless remarks, which were deemed to be insulting of Kenya's sovereignty, he was suspended and denounced. Following his tweets, Alfred Mutua, a candidate for President William Ruto's position on the Foreign Affairs Committee, met with Hassan Wasswa Galiwango, the Ugandan ambassador to Kenya, in Nairobi in an effort to diffuse any animosity between the two countries. Following the meeting, Mutua reaffirmed everything was fine.
