Just In: Muhoozi Kainerugaba Dropped As Land Forces Commander

He also mentioned that Uhuru would have easily won current President William Ruto and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga during the August 9 General Election.

“My only problem with my beloved big brother is that he didn’t stand for a third term. We would have won easily,” Muhoozi said in a series of tweets.

Muhoozi, 48, suggested Mr Kenyatta should have changed the constitution to remain in power.

“Haha! I love my Kenyan relatives. Constitution? Rule of law? You must be joking! For us (Uganda), there is only the Revolution and you will soon learn about it!”

An earlier tweet today by Muhoozi said that he had had a discussion with his father following the row caused by his eruptive tweets, and that an announcement on changes would be made later.

“Had a good discussion with my great father this morning. Apparently, my tweets scared Kenyans too much? He will announce the changes. There is a special prayer I shall make for our army,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Uganda People’s Defence Force – UPDF has made a statement regarding the changes and revealed Muhoozi, 48, has been promoted to a full general.
