Maverick Ugandan general and son of President Yoweri Museveni is back online after taking a few weeks' hiatus. In a post on his social media pages on Friday evening, Muhoozi urged his fans and supporters not to be troubled as he has been silent for some weeks.
“I have been doing some small reading,” wrote Muhoozi. He also added that after his absence, he is more than sure that his generation will transform Africa.
Before taking the break from social media, Muhoozi had appeared to support the M23 rebels that have been reigning terror in the Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo against the wishes of the Tshekedi-led Kinshasha government. In one of his tweets, the Ugandan General had cautioned those mocking the rebels.
According to Muhoozi, the Rebels are not terrorists but are fighting for the rights of Tutsis in DRC. The former commander of Uganda's land forces is known for making controversial statements that have caused disquiet in diplomatic circles in the past souring relations between Uganda and her neighbours.
For example, in October, he sparked outrage online by suggesting that the Ugandan military might run over Nairobi in a matter of hours. The statements elicited mixed reactions, prompting Uganda's military, the UPDF, to distance itself from the claims.
