Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni’s son, Muhoozi Kainerugaba, promises to combat corruption in the military as he assumes command, potentially paving the way for his succession.

The 49-year-old’s appointment as Chief of Defence Forces is seen as a strategic move, given his father’s lengthy rule. Kainerugaba aims to tackle corruption and improve soldiers’ welfare.

Uganda’s military is influential in regional stability, with deployments in Somalia and the DRC.

Critics accuse Museveni of nepotism, but he denies grooming his son for presidency.

Kainerugaba’s previous removal from a military post highlights past controversies.
