Yoweri Museveni, president of Uganda, has apologized to Kenyans after his son General Muhoozi Kainerugaba’s comments sparked controversy and unrest.
By suggesting that former President Uhuru Kenyatta should have run for a third term, Museveni said that it was improper for his son to make such comments about the political anxiety in Kenya.
Museveni said in a statement dated Wednesday, October 5, that he had apologized to President William Ruto for his son’s actions.
“Dear Ugandans, Kenyans, and all East Africans. I greet each and every one of you. I beg our Kenyan brothers and sisters to forgive us for the tweets posted by General Muhoozi “He stated.
The East African Community and the African Union, as well as the Peer Review Mechanism of the African Union, are the only appropriate venues where such complaints may be discussed, he added.
