After 28 years of service in my glorious military, the greatest military in the world, I am happy to announce my retirement. Me and my soldiers have achieved so much! I have only love and respect for all those great men and women that achieve greatness for Uganda everyday.

As he bid the army goodbye, Museveni’s son did not forget to mention his team’s achievements.
“Me and my soldiers have achieved so much! I have only love and respect for all those great men and women that achieve greatness for Uganda every day,” added the general.
The Ugandan president’s son has retired from active service at the age of 48.
Following Muhoozi’s announcement, Ugandans took to the comment section to wish him well in his next assignment.
A Twitter user with the handle @Aggie-goddess wrote:
“You will always be remembered as the greatest commander Uganda has ever had.”
@RobertMamanda5 wondered if the general had followed the right retirement procedure:
“Didn’t know one just retires from the UPDF like a casual labourer digging a pit latrine. Was the right formal process followed? Gen Sejusa has been trying to retire in vain for the past 2 decades.”
