On January 12, General Muhoozi Kainerugaba, a Ugandan general and the son of President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, recalled his comments regarding the capture of Nairobi three months prior.
Speaking on his official Twitter account, Muhoozi Kainerugaba said that while some people believed that "taking" Nairobi was a joke, he believed that the truth will eventually triumph.
The senior presidential advisor Muhoozi, who is in charge of special operations, added that the East African federation would soon come to pass.
In response to an internet outcry sparked by Muhoozi's post about taking control of Nairobi in two weeks, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni was forced to apologize on his son's behalf.
"I made a "joke" three months ago about occupying Nairobi in two weeks. Now, Tom, Dick, or Harry would have recognized it right away as "a joke" Unfortunately, it wasn't for some people. In either case, the truth will prevail! Realization of the East African Federation is planned "He wrote in.
His claim that Uganda's special forces are without a doubt one of the best military in the world comes after he said that his father, Yoweri Museveni, taught them to win every battle.
However, Ugandans' online reactions to his statement were conflicted.
"Our military is ranked 92nd globally and 12th in Africa, with Kenya, Sudan, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo all ranking higher than us. Are you too proud to boast about this every day? "one responded.
"An army of professionals with a human face and heart is @updf. UPDF places a high importance on discipline, and I believe that the @updf_ is where Ugandans may find their brightest minds "another said.
Let's wait and see what occurs next in the interim.
