Some Kenyan leaders have mounted pressure on President William Ruto over a tweet by Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni’s son Muhoozi Kainerugaba’s. They are calling on the Kenyan President to summon Uganda’s Ambassador to Kenya Hassan Wasswa Galiwango.
The leaders called for the intervention of the president over the matter stating that such reckless remarks from leaders will undermine the esprit de corps among countries under the umbrella of the East African Community.
The speaker of the National Assembly, Moses Wetangula has also blasted the move saying that the Ugandan Commander of Land Forces is clout chasing.
Wetangula went further and equated the economy of the two countries calling on Muhoozi to respect Nairobi as the Kenyan capital.
“A whole Commander of Land forces tweeting nonsense in the name of chasing clout. What a shame! Uganda is just a meme Country!” He exclaimed.
Muhoozi, who is the Ugandan military commander of the land forces has also been rebuked by CS Interior designate Kithure Kindiki who has, among other things, urged Kenyans to disregard the tweet and remain vigilant and calm even as they go over the issue.
Other local leaders who have condemned the act include the member of county assembly (MCA) Killeleshwa, Robert Alai who has termed the act as sabotage to the unity enjoyed in the entire EAC.
The Former Minority Leader in the National Assembly John Mbadi has also annexed other leaders in rebuking the act stating that EAC unity should be strengthened rather than recklessly breaking the ties among the countries under that umbrella.
Former Nairobi governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko on his part incited Kenyans to remain united and said the Kenyan army will be steadfast in protecting the territory and the boundaries of Kenya.
Residents within the East African Community have also come out with guns blazing in the social media to condemn the heinous act and reckless sentiment made by Muhoozi.
They collectively urged the Kenyan commander in chief to act diligently and tackle the matter without being mindful of his close long term relationship with Yoweri Museveni.
Muhoozi is an Ugandan military commander serving as the commander of the land forces of the Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF) and he was previously the commander of the Special Forces Command.
The Ugandan government through its spokesperson Ofwono Opondo is yet to issue a statement on the same.
