(ConservativeSense.com) – The son of the President of Uganda has said that the country’s troops will defend Moscow if the West goes to war with Russia. Muhoozi Kainerugaba, who is a general in the Ugandan army, said on Twitter, “Call me a Putinist if you will, but we, Uganda shall send soldiers to defend Moscow if it’s ever threatened by the Imperialists!”
In what sounded like a left-wing rant, he said the West is wasting its time with Ukraine propaganda and that the rest of the world is on Russia’s side. “Russia, China, Africa, India, and South America shall win in Ukraine. 75% of humanity shall win against 15%,” he declared.
Kainerugaba has been a commander in the Ugandan forces for 15 years but has let it be known that he intends to replace his father as the nation’s leader. He has a history of denouncing “imperialists” and “capitalists” in clear swipes at the West.
He reportedly has a history of heavy drinking, particularly while on Twitter, and has been forced to apologize for his verbal antics online. He recently described homosexuals as “evil” and called for them to be hanged (but only after they’ve had six months to explain themselves), and he referred to a woman critical of his online content as “ugly.”
He also used Twitter to announce his intention to replace his father and said he will run for the Presidency in 2026. He urged his followers to agree with him that his father was now too old to lead the country.
He is however seen as something of a joke figure by some. The newspaper Black Star News has referred to him as “Baby Doc”, a reference to the Haitian dictator Jean-Claude Duvalier.
The paper described his announcement of a new radio and TV station as a “lackluster comedy” and mocked his drinking by stating he was “probably under the influence of unknown intoxicants” when he proclaimed his intention to run for President in 2026.
