Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba ,who was recently sacked as commander of Land Forces by his father and president of Uganda Gen Yoweri Museveni, has said that he will not quit twitter ,saying that he is mature enough to make his own decisions .
On Sunday while speaking to the press, Museveni said that his son Gen Muhoozi would stay off twitter when it comes to affairs of interstate and partisan politics .
“He will leave twitter. We have this discussion. Twitter is not a problem. The problem is what you are tweeting about,” said Museveni.
However, in a tweet, Muhoozi defied his father’s directives as he assured his fans and the general public that there is no one who is going to stop him from using twitter.
“I hear some journalist from Kenya asked my father to ban me from Twitter? Is that some kind of joke? I am an adult and no one will ban me from anything,” he said.
Recently Muhoozi sent out a series of provocative messages on twitter that enraged many people and threatened Uganda’s diplomatic ties with Kenya.
He was consequently sacked as Commander of Land Forces but promoted to full general in a delicate balancing act by President Museveni.
