Museveni’s Son Muhoozi: My Father’s Party (NRM) No Longer Represents Ugandans

President Yoweri Museveni’s son Muhoozi Kainerugaba has launched another attack on his father’s National Resistance Movement (NRM) party, claiming that it no longer represents Ugandans.

Mr. Kainerugaba boasted that he is the country’s best bet for a national leader. According to him, this is due to the ruling NRM’s deteriorating performance.

“I am listening to the outcry of our people for change. I am with the people. Whatever NRM has become certainly does not represent the people of Uganda,” he posted on his Twitter handle on Saturday at around noon.

“We shall jointly (all of together) create the 6th republic. The 1st was Obote, the 2nd was Amin, the 3rd was Obote II, the 4th was Okello and the 5th was NRM. We will be the 6th republic! The greatest epoch in history!” he added.

This is not the first time Mr. Kainerugaba has targeted his father. He has previously expressed interest in succeeding his father as President of Uganda in order to honor his mother.

In previous remarks, he praised his mother, Janet Museveni, who is also Uganda’s Education and Sports Minister, as an angel.

He also revealed plans to call a large youth summit where he will inform the country’s young people about a big plan he has for them.

Mr. Kainerugaba claimed in October that he would capture Nairobi in less than two weeks.

His tweets sparked a diplomatic spat between the two countries, with Uganda’s foreign affairs ministry later distancing itself from the first son’s remarks and apologizing to Kenya.
