Muhoozi and Uhuru have been close friends for some time.

President Uhuru Kenyatta could be one of the close allies of Muhoozi Kainerugaba, son to his counterpart Yoweri Museveni.

This was evident in a message the scion tweeted on Wednesday in which he declared that Uhuru was his friend.

"President Uhuru and I are brothers forever!" he said.

Muhoozi and Uhuru have been close friends for some time.

In June this year, Muhoozi held talks with President Uhuru at State House, Nairobi.

During the meeting, they discussed several bilateral and multilateral issues of interest to Kenya and Uganda.

"Among the issues that we discussed included the restoration of peace in the Democratic Republic of Congo," Uhuru said.

On 8 March 2022, Muhoozi’s announced retirement from the Ugandan People’s Defence Forces (UPDF), which he had formally served since 1999.

Since his most recent promotion in June 2021, he has served as the commander of the land forces.

The position made him the third-highest ranking officer in the defence forces.
