Ugandans on Twitter were shocked on Tuesday evening after the twitter account of Maj Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba, Son to the President of The Republic of Uganda and the Senior Presidential Advisor in Charge of Special Operations had some rather ‘disturbing’ tweets. The tweets had twitter fanatics wonder whether they were actually tweeted by Mr. Muhoozi or his account had been compromised.
However, the attack on Maj. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba’s twitter account was this morning confirmed to be compromised and hacked by unknown malicious individuals. The Spokesman of the UPDF Special Forces Command, Maj. Chris Magezi took to twitter to clarify on the tweets that were showing on the General’s twitter handle last evening and confirmed that they had secured the account that has been compromised.
