First Son Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba’s MK Movement has now rebranded into Patriotic League of Uganda.

Speaking at their offices in Naguru, Igara East MP and group chairperson said since 2022 when the group was formed, they have been able to garner much support but noted it was high time they rebranded.

“We hereby constitute ourselves into a civic organization and assume and adopt a new name and identity of the Patriotic League of Uganda with the aim of working towards reviving in Ugandans a spirit of good citizenship, national pride, national service, protection of vulnerable persons, combating corruption and wastage of public resources, and protection of the environment,” Mawanda said.

The MK Movement has in the past been involved in several activities around the country including among others cleaning communities.

The group members have also defended Gen Muhoozi on several matters.

Speaking on Wednesday, the group chairperson said they will continue mobilizing Ugandans to fulfil their civic duties as citizens of the country, for the benefit of society as a whole and to jealously guard the unique natural and social harmony that makes Uganda.

“We commit to ensure that the Patriotic League of Uganda’s efforts towards reviving patriotism will remain non-partisan, non- denominational and non-sectarian.”

Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba last year slammed the old generation of leaders to which his father, Museveni belongs for dominating the young generation noting that he is tired of waiting.

He consequently declared his presidential ambitions, come 2026.

“The Prime Minister of UK is 42 years old; the Prime Minister of Finland is 37 years. Some of us are hitting 50 years old. We are tired of waiting forever. We will take a stand! Fidel Castro, my HERO, became President at 32 years. I’m about to hit 49 years old. It’s really not right. The Presidency of the nation is meant for young men. How many agree with me that our time has come? Enough of the old people ruling us. Dominating us. It’s time for our generation to shine,” Gen Muhoozi tweeted.

President Museveni last year warned Gen Muhoozi to watchout for some of his supporters whom he said are self seekers.

“You remember when he celebrated his 48th birthday, there was some enthusiasm by some of the youths. When I analysed it, I could see that it was because of weakness of our system.I could see it was sort of a resistance movement within the resistance movement(NRM). … but fo course some of the things (Gen) Muhoozi doesn’t know is that some of them are looking for their own interests. Some are looking for this, some are looking for that,” Museveni said.

He said the issue of Muhoozi is “partly due to the weaknesses of NRM .”

“Some of the frustrated youths go to that group (MK Movement) thinking that there is hope.”
