Read Uganda President Yoweri Museveni Full Apology Letter To Kenyans

When Kainerugaba suggested uniting the two countries (Kenya and Uganda) and even "capturing Nairobi," it stirred discussion on Twitter.

"We will become one nation, my Kenyan brothers. Any conflict with us will be over swiftly! We revolutionaries have no regard for the colonizers' set frontiers. Nairobi!" Tweeted Muhoozi.

Kenya was also irritated by what he stated.

Museveni's complete regret

I beg your pardon for the tweets General Muhoozi, the previous commander of our land forces, wrote regarding the election issues in your wonderful country of Kenya. Public officials—civilians as well as members of the armed forces—should not make statements on or meddle in the domestic affairs of other nations.

The Peer Review Mechanism of the African Union, private communications between us, or forums hosted by the EAC and AU are the only valid venues accessible; public comments are not permitted.

Why then, after these remarks, was he promoted to full General? This is due to the fact that his action as a public officer has been significantly impacted by this mistake. The General has made and still has a lot of other valuable contributions, though.

Discourage the bad and promote the positive is a tried-and-true strategy. I'm really sorry, Wakenya, ndugu zetu. I'm also apologetic to the Ugandans who could have found it infuriating that one of their officials was interfering in the business of their Kenyan brother. I am very certain that General Muhoozi is a fervent Pan-Africanist.

However, if you are a public officer, using the various fora (EAC and AU) or having private conversations are the best options for Pan-Africanists. I've privately shared all of those opinions with Kenyan President H.E. Ruto.
