Uganda is Declaring War on Kenya - Lawyer Ahmednasir
Tweets by President Yoweri Museveni's Son Muhoozi Kainerugaba is a declaration of war on Kenya, Senior counsel Ahmednasir Abdullahi has said.
In a tweet, the lawyer said the threats the scion issued to the Kenyan nation had hallmarks of a war declaration by international law standards.
"Under Customary International Law...this declaration by Uganda's Top Army General and the son of H.E Museveni is a declaration of war on Kenya," Ahmednasir stated.
In a series of tweets on Monday, Kainerugaba claimed he and the Uganda People's Defence Force (UPDF) could take control of Nairobi in less than two weeks.
"It wouldn't take us, my army and me, 2 weeks to capture Nairobi," he tweeted.
In another tweet, he mocked Kenya's constitutional provision of presidential term limits insinuating that that does not work for Uganda.
"Haha! I love my Kenyan relatives. Constitution? Rule of law? You must be joking! For us, there is only the Revolution and you will soon learn about it!"
The remarks degenerated into a war of words with Kenyans firing back at him with all sorts of words.
Many questioned the capability of the Ugandan army to take control of Nairobi saying Kenya is better placed than the neighbouring country.
