Museveni’s son apologises for Kenya invasion tweets

Ugandan General Muhoozi Kainerugaba has apologized to Kenya’s President William Ruto over tweeted threats about invading the neighboring country and capturing its capital in two weeks.

Gen Kainerugaba’s tweets drew angry reactions from Kenyans and prompted his father, President Yoweri Museveni, to apologise to Kenya.

In his Thursday evening apology, the general said he had never had any problem with President Ruto.

He asked Kenya to forgive him, if he made a mistake anywhere.

Mr Museveni – who has been in power since 1986 – has long been suspected of grooming his 48-year-old son to succeed him when he eventually steps down, an allegation he has always denied.
