Uganda: Museveni makes son special adviser

Uganda: Museveni makes son special adviser

Uganda’s leader Yoweri Museveni has promoted his eldest son to become a special presidential adviser in a reshuf­fle of army commanders.
Maj.-Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba has ris­en rapidly within the military, fuelling spec­ulation that he is being groomed to become president one day.
Analysts say his new role, working more closely with state house, will broaden his re­mit and experience.
Mr Museveni, 72, is one of Africa’s longest-serving leaders.
He came to power in 1986 after winning a five-year guerrilla war - and last year won his fifth term in office with more than 60% of the vote.
Gen Kainerugaba, 42, had been in charge of the Special Forces in charge of his father’s se­curity since 2008.
