Democratic Party (DP) president general Norbert Mao has reacted to a response by first son Lt Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba’s praises of him.
Earlier on February 03, Lt Gen Kainerugaba, President Yoweri Kaguta Tibuhaburwa Museveni’s son and commander of UPDF land forces, described Mao as ‘the most brilliant opposition leader.’ (Read story here).
Now, Mao has responded to the praises.
The opposition leader said the first son’s tweet had exposed the difference between understanding and knowledge.
He also praised Lt Gen Kainerugaba for not being short sighted.
Mao also seemed to castigate fellow opposition politicians for wanting to play victim.
“This tweet has drawn a clear line between those who know and those who understand! I’m glad Lt Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba doesn’t suffer from generational myopia,” he wrote.
“You need a wide lens to overcome generational myopia. Otherwise you’ll always be taken by surprise and end up wallowing in victimhood!”
