Reading Time: 2 minutes

National Unity Platform (NUP) President General Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine has reacted dismissively to yesterday’s decision by President Yoweri Museveni to appoint his son, Lt Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba as the head of Land Forces.

He says Muhoozi’s appointment is consistent with reports that he is being groomed to seize power once Museveni’s reign ends

President Museveni on Thursday appointed Muhoozi Kainerugaba as the head of Land Forces.

Lt Gen Kainerugaba replaces Lt Gen Peter Elwelu who was appointed Deputy Commander of Defence forces

Museveni also replaced Gen David Muhoozi with Lt Gen Wilson Mbadi as the new Commander of Defence Forces.

Kyagulanyi says that as commander of their private army the SFC, Muhoozi has been supervising the massive abduction and torture and murder of supporters of the National Unity Platform, many of whom have since passed on. Gen. Museveni recently admitted that SFC under his son were behind these gruesome crimes.

As expected, Gen. Museveni has appointed his son Muhoozi Kainerugaba as Commander of UPDF’s land forces and war criminal Peter Elwelu as Deputy Chief of Defence Forces. Under Museveni, the occupiers of these particular positions usually end up as overall Commanders of the army. Mr Kyagulanyi Says

Bobi Wine also says that the appointment of Gen. Elwelu portends an even worse phase of terror against the political opposition, led by the military who are increasingly playing an oversized role in the suppression political dissent in Uganda. Elwelu struck infamy when he commanded the 2016 massacre of hundreds of people (including women and children) in Kasese who were opposed to Gen. Museveni’s rule. He is being rewarded for a job well done, but also to strike further fear into those who oppose his master.

Nevertheless, fellow citizens, these appointments should not surprise us because we all saw them coming — every dying horse is entitled to its final kicks. Like history has always proven, there is no amount of preparation a dictator may make that can save them from their ultimate fate. So long as we remain united and maintain our resistance to dictatorship, Uganda Shall soon be liberated , Added Bobi Wine.

Bobi Wine is currently on a foreign trip in the United States of America for close to two weeks.
