On 4th November 2022, The deputy Chief of Defence Forces of Uganda forces (UPDF), Lt Gen Peter Elwelu told an EU delegation that, “given opportunity, the East African regional force can wipe away M23 rebel group that is causing havoc in DR Congo in 24 hours.”
On 20th November 2022, out of nowhere, Baby General Muhoozi Kainerugaba came to undermine Lt Gen Peter Elwelu in public by stating in his tweeter handle, “Nobody should mock our brothers in M23, I heard some people saying that they can defeat them in a day? Okay. That’s what Obote used to say about NRA in Luweero. When we convince them to withdraw for peace. They shall do it because they are serious partners for peace in DRC.”
I will let you contemplate, analyse, interpret and come to a conclusion on these two statements. 1) A statement made by Uganda’s Deputy Chief of Defence Forces – Lt Gen Peter Elwelu on 4th November 2022 to an EU delegation, and 2) A counter statement made on 20th November 2022, by Baby General – Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba, son of the president of Uganda.
Also, don’t forget to contemplate, analyse, interpret and come to a conclusion on why Baby General – Muhoozi Kainerugaba is always undermining the Uganda People’s Defence Force as an institution. One of the best institution in Uganda.
