Uganda President Yoweri Museveni’s son Muhoozi Kainerugaba has come out to deny reports he is dead.

Besides being President Museveni’s only son, Muhoozi is also a senior officer in the Ugandan army.

At the weekend, there were reports on social media that President Yoweri Museveni was critically ill and flown to Germany for further treatment.

However, it turned out to be false after the Head of State presided over the launch of the World Health Summit Regional Meeting at Speke Resort Munyonyo, on Sunday.

This, however, didn’t stop some social media users from coming up with more rumours.

This time, the rumour mongers trained their guns on Muhoozi, claiming he had not only contracted Covid-19 but was either very ill or had succumbed to the illness.

But come Monday, June 28, 2021, Muhoozi, on his official Twitter account came out to deny the rumours.

“Some friends of mine like Alan Kasujja told me that some enemies were declaring me dead, or very ill from Covid-19. I’m very well. This is the third time in my military career that enemies are claiming I’m dead. The funny thing is every time they do that Almighty God blesses me more,” Muhoozi said in a tweet.

These reports come days after, Muhoozi who previously served as the Special Forces Commander was appointed Commander of Land Forces and replaced by Brig Peter Chandia who had been his deputy.
