This week, I have been paying attention to the ongoing attacks on Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba, alleging that his interest in politics is due to his being the first son.

In a recent interview on KFM, Dr Kiiza Besigye said, “Apart from being Mr. Museveni’s son, frankly anybody who interacts and sees Gen Muhoozi is terribly substandard.”

I disagree with Dr Besigye’s assessment. I believe that Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba is a well-qualified and experienced individual who would make a good president.

Dr Besigye’s own parenting has been called into question. His son, Anselm Besigye, has been accused of being gay and of impersonating women.

In contrast, Mzee Museveni has been a devoted father to his children. He has taught them the importance of hard work, discipline, and patriotism.

Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba is a product of this good parenting. He is a strong and capable leader who is committed to serving his country.


Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba has a wealth of experience in both military and civilian leadership. He has served as the commander of the Special Forces Command, the youngest person to ever hold that position. He is also the former commander of the Land Forces and current senior presidential advisor on special operations


Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba has a clear vision for Uganda’s future. He wants to see a country that is prosperous, peaceful, and united. He is committed to improving the lives of all Ugandans, regardless of their tribe or religion.


I believe that Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba would make a great president. He is a qualified, experienced, and visionary leader. I urge Ugandans to support him in 2026.

Negative thinking won’t develop us. Is muhozi a Ugandan, what is his education level? Does he meet requirements for presidential candidate?. Whether he’s who’s son is another story .
