Amidst a commotion in Kenya, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has given an explanation for why he promoted his son.
After declaring that he would take control of Nairobi in two weeks, Muhoozi Kainerugaba, the previous leader of the Uganda People’s Defence Force, was elevated to the rank of full general.
As a result of the outcry, Museveni apologized.
Museveni stated that his son should not have made such statements.
Museveni went on to explain his decision to promote his son to the rank of full general.
“ Why then promote him to a full General after these comments? This is because this mistake 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,” he said.
