First son Maj. Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba upset his admirers but left his foes blissful when he revealed that he is not eying the presidency.
Muhoozi said there is nothing like “Muhoozi project.”
“It (Muhoozi Project) doesn’t exist, non-existent – that is a red herring. You have never heard of a message where I promote myself, it is always from the promotions board. That is the process in the military.”
Muhoozi, the commander of the Special Forces Command who was promoted to the rank of Maj. Gen. recently said he is happy to serve in the army.
“I am very happy in the military and in case I wanted to join politics, I know the procedures to go through,” he said.
He further stated; “As you heard, I don’t have the ambition to be president. I am very happy being in the military and that is where I intend to stay for some time.”
In 2011, Capt Mike Mukula told the US government that President Museveni is grooming his son, Muhoozi Kainerugaba, as a successor.
However, the “Muhoozi project” is a big debate among NRM insiders. For example, WhatsApp groups in the names of “Muhoozi project” are mushrooming.
