President Museveni apologises to Kenyans over son’s outburst

Dear Ugandans, the brotherly People of Kenya and all East Africans. I greet all of you.   

Again, I hail the peaceful elections that took place in  Kenya recently where  H.E.  William Ruto emerged winner.  I, again, congratulate him on that victory. I ask our Kenyan brothers and sisters to forgive us for tweets sent by General Muhoozi, former Commander of Land Forces here, regarding the election matters in that great country.  It is not correct for Public officers, be they civilian or military, to comment or interfere in any way, in the internal affairs of brother countries. 

The only available legitimate forum is the Peer Review Mechanism of the African  Union or confidential interactions among us or  EAC  and  AU  fora –not public comments.  Why,  then,  promote him to full  General after these comments? This is because this mistake is one aspect where he has acted negatively as a  Public officer. There are,  however,  many other positive contributions the  General has made and can still make.  This is a time-tested formula –discourage the negative and encourage the positive.   

Very sorry, ndugu zetu  Wakenya. Also sorry to the  Ugandans who could have been annoyed by one of their officials meddling in the affairs of brother Kenya.   I know for a  fact that  General  Muhoozi is a  passionate  Pan-Africanist.  However,  the correct method for  Pan-Africanists is confidential interactions or using the available fora  (EAC  and  AU),  especially if you are a Public officer.  I have conveyed all those views confidentially to H.E. Ruto, the President of Kenya.

Signed: YK Museveni (Gen. Rtd.)
