President Yoweri Museveni has apologised to Kenya and Uganda over son Gen.Muhoozi Kainerugaba’s posts on Twitter.

In a statement from Museveni he called upon Kenyans to forgive his son for the wild tweets.

“Dear Ugandans, the brotherly People of Kenya and all East Africans. I greet all of you. Again, I hail the peaceful elections that took place in Kenya recently where H.E. William Ruto emerged winner. I, again, congratulate him on that victory. I ask our Kenyan brothers and sisters to forgive us for tweets sent by General Muhoozi, former Commander of Land Forces here, regarding the election matters in that great country.”

“Very sorry, ndugu zetu Wakenya. Also sorry to the Ugandans who could have been annoyed by one of their officials meddling in the affairs of brother Kenya. I know for a fact that General Muhoozi is a passionate Pan- Africanist. However, the correct method for Pan- Africanists is confidential interactions or using the available fora (EAC and AU), especially if you are a Public officer.”

“This is because this mistake (comments on Kenya) is one aspect where he has acted negatively as a public officer. There are, however, many other positive contributions the General has made and can still make. This is a time-tested formula discourage the negative and encourage the positive,” Mr Museveni said in a Wednesday afternoon statement.

Muhoozi revealed in his tweets on Monday, that it would only take him two weeks to capture Kenya’s capital, Nairobi.

Museveni’s apology comes a day after he promoted his son to the highest rank in Uganda’s army making him the youngest four star general at the age of 48.
