While Museveni is among some of African leaders who delayed to embrace social media, he boasts a following of 74,032 on Facebook and 26,000 on Twitter.


The President last week sent out his first tweet ever since joining Twitter.


Using Twitter handle @KagutaMuseveni, the President saluted Kyambogo University science students for making a vehicle that uses ethanol instead of petroleum.


“I send my first tweet to salute Ugandan science students; they modified this vehicle’s engine to run on pure ethanol,” read the tweet which saw the President’s account immediately verified by Twitter.


In his second tweet, the President thanked the public “for welcoming me to Twitter. I will interact with you, and take questions, every two weeks”.


“Attending the 50th Anniversary celebrations of the union between Tanganyika and Zanzibar, today, Dar-es-salaam,” was his third tweet of a function where Tanzania’s President Jakaya Kikwete glowingly referred to him as a brother and senior leader in the region.


His fourth tweet: “I salute Mwalimu Julius Nyerere Kambarage for his contribution to the formation of the United Republic of ?#‎Tanzania,” saw hundreds of people across the region retweeting.


Commenting on the President’s post on his Facebook page, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, about celebrating with Tanzanians their 50th Anniversary of the Union Day, Tanzanians welcomed him to Tanzania and wished he had addressed them even if for two minutes.


This post on Tanzania visit attracted 1,386 likes and hundreds of comments which are still pouring onto the page.


Special Presidential Communications Assistant, Sarah Kagingo, predicts that if @KagutaMuseveni’s handle can do 2353 retweets, 973 favorites and 26,000 followers in under 4 days, his might be the most discussed handle in ?‎Uganda.
