Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba, who is the Presidential Advisor on Special Operations, has scoffed at Kyadondo East legislator Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine, who is also the leader of the People Power movement, whom he claims is a copycat.
Apparently, Gen. Muhoozi is lambasting Bobi Wine for reportedly copying his red beret which he (Muhoozi) introduced to the UPDF with the help of his paternal uncle Gen. Caleb Akandwanaho aka Salim Saleh.
Actually, until now, very few Ugandans knew that Gen. Muhoozi is the one who introduced the red beret to the UPDF, which nowadays Bobi Wine uses as one of the main symbols of his People Power movement, although the police and UPDF have since outlawed the same.
Muhoozi took his claim for the red beret a notch higher by posting thus on social media; “People Power’ we just laugh! You’ve always tried to be like me but you can’t. Copying my beret that I introduced to the UPDF, poorly trying to copy me. Why don’t you coin your own beret? The maroon/red beret is ours. Muhoozi and Afande Saleh!”
However, what it not yet clear is whether Gen. Muhoozi registered a patent for the red beret and the trademarks on it, because Bobi Wine’s People Power beret is totally different from the Muhoozi UPDF beret and bears totally different symbols.
