Twitter has suspended the account of UPDF Commander Land Forces Lt Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba over violation of its civic integrity policy allegations.
On Monday, Twitter suspended Muhoozi’s account over unclear reasons although it is suspected that the action could be due to violation of its civic integrity policy. Twitter provides in its rules that it prohibits behaviour that harasses or intimidates, or is otherwise intended to shame or degrade others since such behaviour does not only pose risks to people’s safety, but also may lead to physical and emotional hardship for those affected.
Muhoozi recently used the same account to announce the so called mega 48th birthday party scheduled for April 24th.
In behavior untypical to serving army officers, Muhoozi, the commander of Land Forces has been using his account to hit and respond to his critics.
He recently used his twitter to sound a serious warning to rustlers in the Karamoja sub-region against attacking communities, revealing that the army would swing into action with ‘hell’ if the status quo was maintained.
Last year, Twitter and Facebook blocked a number of government officials for manipulating public debate ahead of the 2021 elections.
1st son Muhoozi Kainerugaba had more than 500,000 followers on his twitter account.
