The son of the President of Uganda, General Muhoozi Kaimerugaba tweeted about him and the army taking over Nairobi’s capital a few weeks ago.
However, in his recent address, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni said that his son would no longer tweet about the country’s affairs, after a series of controversial tweets in early October in which he threatened to invade Kenya.
“He’s going to leave Twitter. We have had this discussion. Twitter is not a problem. The problem is what you tweet,” he said.
“Talking about other countries and Uganda’s politics is something he should not do and will not do,” Museveni added.
Meanwhile, on October 4, Muhoozi Kainerugaba was removed from his post as commander of the ground forces. On October 13, he apologized. “I never had any problem with Afande Ruto,” he tweeted, referring to the new Kenyan president William Ruto.
