Muhoozi Gets New Publicist For SFC


abortion geneva; font-size: small;”>Chris Magezi, who has been the spokesperson for Uganda’s contingent in Somalia, will now be in charge of the public relations desk charged with responsibility of overhauling the image of the Special Forces.

Contacted, Kwesiga confirmed he had been sent on a military course.

“Yes it is true; I will be leaving soon for a course. I am very grateful to my fellow officers in uniform for the support and guidance they have always given me and the media for the robust cooperation,” Kwesiga told Chimpreports on Tuesday evening.

Observers say the appointment of Magezi is aimed at rejuvenating relations between the Special Forces and the media following a string of stories that have portrayed the elite unit as a creation of President Yoweri Museveni to safeguard his personal ambitions.

Magezi comes at a time when government is struggling to convince the nation that Special Forces is unique squad of combatants tasked with executing exceptional national security operations.

The timing of the appointment is also tricky as Magezi’s performance will be judged by how he manages to successfully reshape public opinion on Muhoozi, considering that many now believe he will soon be imposed on Ugandans as their president.

Muhoozi maintains he can only seek political office by ballot.
