Ugandan General Muhoozi Kainerugaba now insists that he will be the President of Uganda one day.

Speaking on Wednesday, the General said that his fortune only favours children of God and he is one.

"Fortune favours the sons of God! I will be President of Uganda one day," he said in a tweet.

This comes a few months after Muhoozi said that being president of the Republic of Uganda would be the best way to appreciate his mother.

"The only way I can re-pay my great mother is by being President of Uganda! And I shall do it!" he said.

The remarks were part of his continued Twitter 'outbursts' on taking over after his father Yoweri Museveni, while at the same time putting the Ugandan opposition on notice.

Muhoozi has previously expressed confidence that the opposition under musician-cum politician Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine will never lead the country upon his father's retirement. 

Uganda will go to the polls in 2026 to elect a new president. Museveni has ruled the country since he ascended to power in 1978.

"To the Ugandan opposition, after my father, I will defeat you badly in any election. Ugandans love me more than they'll ever love you," Muhoozi said last year.

However, Museveni in an interview with Kenya's KTN News said that he was not backing his son to succeed him.

He said they will have a sit down as the National Resistance Movement and whoever the party will pick as his successor is the person he will back.
