There is a talk in almost every Ugandan Community where most of them think that Gen Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has a mega plan to see that his son Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba becomes the next head of state after him.
Asked by FRANCE 24 journalist whether this project is being worked on, the NRA High Command Chairman said that these are mere hearsays adding that he has personally not heard about such allegations.
Museveni added that he has no such plans because it is not him who chooses the head of state but rather Ugandans who go to the polls every after 5 years to choose their leader to lead them for the next 5 years.
Gen Museveni also added that he is not in Muhoozi’s head and therefore he is unsure of his plans making it clear that he cannot stop him from contesting because he is an adult. “The people of Uganda will choose for themselves. It’s not me to decide for them,” Museveni says.
In 2015, Gen David Sejusa came out to say that there is a Muhoozi project that is running in the background with Museveni preparing his son to take over from him. Gen Sejusa added that the government was getting rid of all those that were not happy with the matter using all means to silence them.
