MUHOOZI TWEETS: Museveni apologises, explains army changes

President Museveni has finally bowed to pressure and apologized to Kenyans after his son’s tweets about invading Kenya and seizing Nairobi.

“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,” reads Museveni’s statement in part.

According to Museveni, it is not correct for public officers, civilian or military, to comment or interfere in any way, in the internal affairs of other countries.

“The only available legitimate forum is the Peer Review Mechanism of the African Union or confidential interactions among us or EAC and AU fora—not public comments,” he says.

Museveni further explained why he promoted Muhoozi to General instead of punishing him.

“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.

“This is a time-tested formula—discourage the negative and encourage the positive,” he says.

The president further claims that his son 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. I have conveyed all those views confidentially to H.E. Ruto, the President of Kenya,” he says.
