Gen Kainerugaba Speaks on Youth Group Rooting for his Presidency
The Special Presidential Assistant in charge of Special Operations, Maj Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba has distanced himself from a group of youthful activists rallying support for his presidency.
The youth recently circulated posters appealing to the public to support the First Son to take over from President Yoweri Museveni in 2021.
The spokesperson of the office of Special Operations Presidential Advisor, Maj Chris Magezi said the pro-Muhoozi group first appeared in 2015 towards the 2016 elections.
Magezi says if the pro-youth groups are merely fans of Maj Gen Muhoozi, then he deeply appreciates their support and feels honored by their confidence in him.
He further pointed out that the youth groups are discussing political issues, which as civilians they are entitled to but Muhoozi has no intention to enter political activity for the foreseeable future.
