General Muhoozi Kainerugaba, the son of Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, paid President Uhuru Kenyatta a courtesy call at State House in Nairobi on Wednesday.

Muhoozi, who is also the commander of Uganda’s land forces, spoke about a number of bilateral and regional issues important to both Kenya and Uganda.

“Among the issues discussed included the restoration of peace in the Democratic Republic of Congo,” State House reported.

Muhoozi’s journey to Kenya comes amid speculation that he may be plotting to depose his father, President Yoweri Museveni, in Kenya’s next general election.

In April, the General made headlines in Uganda when he threw a lavish 48th birthday celebration that included his father Museveli and Rwandan President Paul Kagame.

Muhoozi would later imply that he is interested.

“When Team MK wins power in this country, which we will, our first action will be to increase the sports budget. Team MK will announce our political programme soon,” he wrote in a tweet.

JUST IN: Sudan PM Abdallah Hamdok Is Under House Arrest

RIYADH:  Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok has been placed under house arrest and a number of Cabinet ministers and other officials arrested in an apparent coup by a still unidentified military force, local and regional media reported early Monday.


Alhadath TV said four cabinet ministers and a member of Sudan’s Sovereign Council  were among those arrested.

There was no immediate comment from the military.

Reacting to the developments, the Sudanese Professionals’ Association, Sudan’s main pro-democratic political group, called on people to take to the street to counter an apparent military coup.

The association  also said there were Internet and phone signal outages in the country.

One of those arrested was Ali Al-Rayh Al-Sanhouri, secretary-general of the Sudanese Baath Party, Al-Sharq reported, quoting unnamed sources.

The report said Council of Sovereignty member Mohammed Al-Jawki was also under arrest, along with Minister of Cabinet Affairs Khaled Omar Yusuf.

The raiders have surrounded the residence of Hamdok and stormed the house of his media adviser, whom they then took under custody, various media reports said.

The arrests comes after weeks of rising tensions between Sudan’s civilian and military leaders. A failed coup attempt in September fractured the country along old lines, pitting more conservative Islamists who want a military government against those who toppled autocratic former ruler Omar Al-Bashir in mass protests. In recent days, both camps have taken to the street in demonstrations.
