Veteran journalist Andrew Mwenda has revealed that he is planning to organize a meeting between First Son Lt Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba and National Unity Platform (NUP) leader Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine where they will discuss the 2026 presidential elections.
“My grand children @mkainerugaba and @HEBobiwine meeting the good old days. As the Old Man of the Clan, I want to organize another conference like this where we can discuss the 2026 election and how to move this country forward! Do u read me??” Mwenda tweeted on Saturday after posting an old photo of Gen Muhoozi with Bobi Wine.
Last month, Mwenda amplified his voice on social media to show that he believes that the Commander Land Forces is his generational leader.
The controversial social and political analyst boldly donned a t-shirt bearing Muhoozi’s portrait with the words ‘THE LEADER.’
Kainerugaba shared the photo, praising his “friend and brother” for his sense of style.
“My friend and brother Mwenda never looked smarter than this. Finally he has good taste in his dress code,” the First Son tweeted.
Talks about the Muhoozi Presidency first gained prominance when it was brought up by former spy chief, Gen David Sejusa, who accused his boss, the incumbent Museveni of trying to impose his son onto the people of Uganda, hence the analogy “The Muhoozi project,”.
President Museveni however swiftly moved to rule out the allegation as baseless, adding that he didn’t see any traits of politics in his only son Muhoozi.
Consequently, calls for Muhoozi to come out and confirm whether he will seek to carry on his father’s political legacy have been loud especially from within the NRM party, with many of his fanatics finding his silence on the matter excruciatingly painful.
Commenting on the same, Muhoozi distanced himself from the speculations, emphasizing that those that had exhibited support for his alleged interest in the presidency did not represent his position on the same. He informed that he was committed on his military job which according to him, required a lot of time and hard work.
However, in 2020, Muhoozi said the phrase, ‘Muhoozi Project’ was coined by ‘evil people’ to try and destroy ‘us’ but has since been turned from a ‘curse’ into a ‘blessing.’
“Some evil people coined this phrase to try and destroy us! But trust my generation to convert every curse into a blessing! Thank you Ugandans, ” he said.
Since then, there has been a sustained online campaign, facilitated by events promoter Balaam Barugahara of selling the Muhoozi brand. Several social media influencers have also taken to social media to ‘market’ Muhoozi.
In June, 2021, Bobi Wine said by consistently promoting Lt Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba, President Museveni was preparing his son to seize power once his reign ends.
Commenting on the recent changes in the Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) leadership, Bobi Wine said Museveni appointed Lt Gen Muhoozi as Commander Land Forces and Lt Gen Peter Elwelu as Deputy Chief of Defence Forces (CDF) well knowing that occupiers of such positions usually end up as overall Commanders of the army.
“Muhoozi’s appointment is consistent with reports that he is being groomed to seize power once Museveni’s reign ends, similar to what dictators elsewhere on the African continent including Gaddafi-era Libya, Equatorial Guinea, Chad and Bashir-era Sudan attempted to do but with little success,” the former presidential candidate said in a Facebook statement.
“You may recall how Muhoozi promised to “beat very badly” his father’s opponents in the 2021 elections.As commander of their private army the SFC, Muhoozi has been supervising the massive abduction, 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.”
