First son Lt Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba has declared BBC News Day lead presenter Alan Kasujja the best journalist in Africa.
The first son, and Commander Land Forces (CLF) Lt Gen Kainerugaba, ‘crowned’ Kasujja after he ‘broke’ news of an attack on Zombo District’s UPDF Zeu Detach.
Rebels suspected to be from the Cooperation for the Development of Congo (Codeco) raided the Zeu Detach killing one UPDF officer and injurinh two others. (See: Fresh Details emerge on Congolese Rebels Attack on UPDF Zeu Detach in which Ugandan Soldier was Killed).
When Kasujja tweeted about the raid, first son Lt Gen Kainerugaba retweeted his post, showering him with praises.
“As usual the best journalist in Africa has the story,” the CLF wrote.
He also saluted the army for warding off the attackers.
“Our boys performed brilliantly and repulsed the attackers,” he said.
