Ugandan president's son Muhoozi Kainerugaba now says he is tired of waiting to become president of the East African republic.

Speaking on Wednesday, Muhoozi said he will soon take a stand on the matter.

He pointed out that Prime Ministers of the United Kingdom and Finland are aged 42 and 37 years old, while he is almost 50 and still waiting to become head of state.

"The Prime Minister of the UK is 42 years old, and the Prime Minister of Finland is 37 years. Some of us are hitting 50 years old. We are tired of waiting forever. We will take a stand!" Muhoozi tweeted.

His remarks come against the backdrop of utterances made by him insisting that he must be president after his father.

A few months ago, Muhoozi said that the only way he could make his mother proud was by becoming the leader of Uganda.

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

In October last year, Muhoozi who is a General in Uganda caused a storm after claiming that he was the country's next President-designate. 

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

"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," he said.

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.
