Robert Kyagulanyi in Rukiga district
By reappointing his son, Lt. Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba to head the elite presidential guard unit, Special Forces Command (SFC), President Yoweri Museveni is afraid after recognising that majority of officers in police and army no longer support him, Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine.
In a reshuffle notice issued Wednesday, Museveni reappointed Muhoozi as the head of SFC, a position he held before he was dropped and appointed presidential advisor on security matters in 2017. SFC has the duty of guarding the president and first family. Muhoozi replaces Maj. Gen. Birungi who has been SFC commander since June 2019.
Museveni also replaced the deputy inspector general of police, Maj Gen Sabiiti Muzeyi with Maj. Gen. Paul Lokech, who has been on a special assignment to monitor the demobilization and integration of South Sudan troops. Maj. Gen. James Birungi has replaced Maj. Gen. Lokech.
While campaigning in the districts of Kisoro, Rubanda, Kabale and Rukiga on Wednesday, Kyagulanyi said that there was no reason for Museveni to appoint his son to such a post if he still believed that Ugandans love him.
Kyagukanyi says that because Museveni is now aware that Ugandans are extremely of his governance, he has no option but to appoint his son to help him continue to impose himself on the Ugandans.
Kyagulanyi says that Museveni’s has reached an extent of lying that incase he (Kyagulanyi) is voted into power, he will favour one tribe (which he did not mention).
Kyagulanyi adds that even in western Uganda, many people are still grappling with basic problems. Kyagulanyi said Museveni has made some Ugandans believe that people from western Uganda receive a monthly ‘tribal allowance’ and are financially better off than the rest of Ugandans which is not true.
Kyagulanyi also endorsed Innocent Nshizirungu, the Alliance for National Transformation (ANT) candidate for Bufumbira East County in Kisoro district.
