Uganda’s president’s son, General Muhoozi Kainerugaba has apologised to Kenya’s President William Ruto over tweeted threats about invading the neighbouring country and capturing its capital in two weeks.
Gen Kainerugaba’s tweets drew angry reactions from Kenyans and prompted his father, President Yoweri Museveni, to apologise to Kenya.
In his Thursday evening apology, the general said he had never had any problem with President Ruto.
He added: “If I made a mistake anywhere, I ask him to forgive me as his young brother.”
