BESIGYE BREAKS SILENCE ON MUHOOZI’S PROMOTION

By Ahmed Matovu

KAMPALA: The four times presidential candidate and the leader of the people’s Front for Transition, Rtd Col Dr. Kizza Besigye has criticised the promotion of President Museveni’s son, Muhoozi Kainerugaba to the highest rank in the Uganda’s army.

President Museveni who is the Commander in Chief of the Ugandan Armed Forces on Tuesday dropped Muhoozi from the position of Commander of the Land Forces and promoted him from Lieutenant General to a full General which is the highest Rank but he remained the presidential advisor on special operations.

Muhoozi’s position was replaced Maj. Gen. Kayanja Muhanga, the current Commander of Operation Shuuja in the Democratic Republic of Congo who has also been promoted to Lieutenant General.

Besigye said ordinarily, Muhoozi should not have been promoted, adding that he ought to have been arraigned in the court martial for the reckless remarks he has been making while serving the army.

“There’s a suggestion that may be he is relieved of his role in command because of what he has been saying with regard to Kenya, Russia, and other kinds of outrageous things but if that was the case he would be facing the court-martial,” Besigye he said.

According to Besigye, his promotion demonstrates that the UPDF has no standing order and law while explaining that it has been captured by the president.
