Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba distances himself from Andrew Mwenda after he shows his support for Homosexuality.
Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba has always had a very close friendship with folk Andrew Mwenda. They have infact been the best of inseparable friends and it is difficult to imagine the pair parting ways. Well, the inevitable seems to have happened and the two are likely to separate all because Andrew Mwenda made comments that suggested that he is in favor of the LGBTQ Community, something Muhoozi does not agree with one bit.
Today, Muhoozi Kainerugaba has announced that Member of Parliament representing Kasambya County, Hon David Kabanda has been promoted from being his Buganda Region Spokesperson to national Deputy Spokesperson, a position that has been formerly occupied by close friend Andrew Mwenda. This has been seen as a preparation to replace veteran journalist Andrew Mwenda who is the General’s spokesperson according to netizens.
”Hon. Daudi Kabanda promoted from being our spokesperson in Buganda to being Deputy Spokesperson of the MK Movement. A new spokesperson for Buganda will be announced,” Gen Muhoozi tweeted on Sunday.
All this stemmed from Andrew Mwenda supporting the LGBTQ Community. Appearing on one of local TV channels, Mwenda vowed to petition the Constitutional Court to challenge the recently passed Anti-Homosexuality Bill, should President Museveni accept it.
He further mentioned that the bill is very ‘stupid’ in many ways saying that it is impossible for the state to regulate morality as the new bill seeks to do.
“If Museveni signs this Anti- Homosexuality law, I promise you, I Andrew Mwenda, I will go to the constitutional court to challenge it. If I sit in the privacy of my bedroom with a fellow man who is also consenting, it means that the two of us will be consenting. Why do you want to criminalize that?” Mwenda mentioned.
This was actually the second time for Mwenda to run to court seeking the nullification of the Anti-Homosexuality law after a successful petition when the law was nullified in 2014 over technicalities.
Now, Mwenda being the spokesperson of the MK Movement, his views left many spitting venom against Gen Muhoozi and the entire MK group with a belief that they are behind the mushrooming homosexuality in Uganda.
To clear his name, Muhoozi , yesterday evening through his new Deputy Spokesperson Kabanda announced that he doesn’t support homosexuality and whatever was said by Mwenda are his personal views which should not be linked to the Movement.
”The MK Movement would like to disassociate itself from Andrew Mwenda’s position on Homosexuality, it should be noted that his comments/opinion on homosexuality are not the official position of the MK Movement. The Chairman of the MK Movement Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba does not support/ condone Homosexuality and has clearly stated this before. The MK Movement will soon hold a Central Executive Committee meeting and give a detailed statement on the matter,” Kabanda defended Muhoozi.
