posted onDecember 16, 2023

 Senior Presidential Advisor for Special Operations, Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba, along with his wife Charlotte, attended the traditional marriage ceremony for former IGP Kale Kayihura’s daughter, Tesi Uwibambe.

Interestingly, Tesi will be married to former IGP of Rwanda National Police, Gen Emmanuel Gasana’s son. 

Gen Muhoozi, a close friend of Gen Kayihura, was personally received by the former IGP at his home in Kisoro Municipality.


Gen Kainerugaba arrived at the venue for the main function after greeting hundreds of locals who were thrilled to see him. He thanked them for joining his friend for the event and promised to return for further interaction with them.

At the colorful event, Gen Kayihura thanked Muhoozi for honoring the occasion with his presence and also thanked his wife.

Gen Kayihura took the opportunity to thank Gen Muhoozi for his role in ensuring that the retired General received justice when he was cleared of the charges he had been battling.

The former IGP expressed confidence in Muhoozi’s credentials as the most qualified to be Uganda’s next president, highlighting his contributions in national and regional security.

In his address at the function, Gen Kainerugaba mentioned that Kayihura was one of the few senior UPDF soldiers to welcome him and others when he joined the army.


Gen Muhoozi thanked Kayihura for his steadfast loyalty, noting that even during tough times, he never wavered in his loyalty to President Museveni.

He urged Kayihura to write his memoirs, stating that it would benefit Ugandans with a remarkable story from his family background, especially his father who fought for Uganda’s independence, and his own work in the UPDF and police. He also mentioned that although his father, John Kalekyezi, died young, he left behind a great son in Kayihura who has accomplished great works.


The event was also attended by senior government leaders from Uganda and Rwanda. It will be followed by other ceremonies in Kigali.
