Muhoozi refutes Gen. Elwelu’s claim that he can defeat his M23 rebel brothers in a single day.

On his Twitter page, Muhoozi Kainerugaba, Senior Presidential Advisor for Special Operations at the Office of the President, trashed comments made by Lieutenant General Peter Elwelu about defeating M23 rebels in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in a single day.

A few weeks ago, the Deputy Chief of Defence Forces, Lt Gen Peter Elwelu said that if the East Africa Community (EAC) Regional Force decides to deploy in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), it wouldn’t take them 24 hours to defeat the M23 rebels.

He made the remarks while meeting a delegation of the European Union led by a senior advisor to the EU’s Foreign Service on emerging threats in the Great Lakes, Horn of Africa and western Indian Ocean, Mr Charles Stuart, at the Ministry of Defence and Veteran Affairs (MODVA) headquarters at Mbuya yesterday.

Nevertheless, the former commander of land forces Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba stated on Sunday, November 20, that nobody should mock his M23 rebel brothers. This is because they are serious partners for peace in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

In another tweet, he urged the M23 rebels to immediately heed the request of Uhuru Kenyatta and Paul Kagame to withdraw from the recently captured territory.
