His recent role has led many to suspect he might follow in the footsteps of General Muhozi Kinyrugaba, son of Ugandan President Museveni, who previously served in the Special Forces Command (SFC), the elite equivalent of the RDF’s Presidential Guard.

Mohozi served as Commander of Special Forces from 2008 to 2017 and again from December 2020 to 2021 before being promoted to Commander of Ground Forces.
