Uganda: President apologizes to Kenya for son’s fuss

#In other countries Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni apologized on Wednesday for lashing out at his son on Twitter, including threatening to invade Kenya.

Kenya’s neighbors were offended by unkind comments earlier this week by the head of state’s eldest son, 48-year-old General Muhusi Kainerukaba.

The president’s son had indicated that it would take him and his army two weeks to capture the Kenyan capital, Nairobi.

He took to social media to criticize former President Uhuru Kenyatta for not representing him in the last presidential election in August, despite the constitution banning him from serving more than two terms.

In a statement released on Wednesday, the Ugandan president criticized his son «To intervene in business» Kenya, and spoke publicly on political issues, which is normally forbidden to any military officer.
