Uganda’s President reappoints eldest Son as Head of Special forces ahead of Presidential Election

By Simdi Gloria:-

Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni has reappointed his eldest son, Lt Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba, as Commander of the Special Forces Command ahead of the country’s presidential election.

The Special Force Command is a unit of the Defence Force that is responsible for the security of the President of Uganda, his immediate family, the constitutional monarchs, and vital national installations.

Lt Gen Kainerugaba was trained at the British academy Sandhurst and other military programmes in the US, Egypt, and South Africa.

He was first made Head of Special Forces in 2008, before getting promoted to become a special presidential adviser to his father in 2017. He now replaces Maj Gen Birungi who has been SFC commander since June 2019 when he was appointed.

This move comes less than a month before the next presidential election, in which President Museveni is looking to extend his rule to four decades.
