A military man, Muhoozi served as commander of the Special Forces Command (SFC) between 2008 and 2017 and again from December 2020 to 2021. He then served as the commander of the land forces of the Uganda People's Defence Force (UPDF) between June 24th 2021 and October 4th 2022 when he was removed following his tweets about invading and capturing Nairobi, Kenya.

Muhoozi Kainerugaba got married to Charlotte Nankunda Kutesa in 1999 and the two have three children together.

President Museveni and Mama Janet Museveni’s youngest daughter is Dina Museveni Kamuntu who was born in 1980.

Diana is an actress best known for her role in the movie 27 Guns which was directed by her older sister, Natasha. She is also an entrepreneur with an interest in the tourism business and a farmer.

She got married to Geoffrey Kamuntu- a Kampala businessman in 2004. After 18 years of wedded bliss, it appears that the Kamuntus’ marriage is coming to an end as it was recently discovered that Diana had applied to the National Identification Registration Authority (NIRA) to drop the use of her husband’s name Kamuntu and wants to be referred to as Diana Museveni Kyaremera henceforth.


Yoweri Museveni’s other children


Besides his four children with first lady Janet Museveni, some sources allege that Museveni has two more children with his alleged second wife identified as Enid Kukunda, a daughter called Dr. Angela Nagasha Kakishozi and a son only identified as Joel.

Angela Nagasha Kakishozi is a medical doctor who got married in February 2022 to Gen Henry Tumukunde's son and was walked down the aisle by Museveni’s brother-General Salim Saleh. Joel on the other hand is an engineer but not much is known about him.
