Uganda President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has promoted his son Muhoozi Kainerugaba to the rank of General.
Reports show that Muhoozi, who previously served as Chief of Land Forces, will be replaced by Maj Gen Muhanga Kanyanja.
He will, however, retain his position as Senior Presidential Advisor in charge of Special Operations.
Muhoozi sparks Twitter storm
This comes barely days after he sparked a storm on Twitter.
Muhoozi came under fire on Monday, October 4, after his cryptic war tweet about 'capturing Nairobi in a fortnight' went viral on Twitter sparking controversy.
Kenyans went haywire with the claims calling for investigations into the matter.
Ugandan gov't responds
Ugandan media on Tuesday reported that the country's Ministry of Foreign Affairs had downplayed Muhoozi's Twitter comments and clarified that the government does not conduct its Foreign Policy and other official business through social media.
The Ugandan government further reiterated its commitment to good neighbourliness, peaceful co-existence and cooperation between the two neighbouring countries.
"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Uganda has noted the debate on social media with respect to the relationship between Uganda and our brotherly neighbour, the Republic of Kenya.
"The Ministry wishes to emphasize that the Government and the people of the Republic of Uganda treasure the existing strong bilateral relations between the people and the Government of the Republic of Kenya based on our shared history, common values, mutual respect, trust and the desire to build a unified East African Community," the government said.
"To this end, the Government of the Republic of Uganda wishes to reiterate its commitment to good neighbourliness, peaceful co-existence and cooperation.
"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs wishes to clarify that the Government of the Republic of Uganda does not conduct its Foreign Policy and other official business through social media nor does it depend on social media sources in dealing with other sovereign Governments.
"The Government of the Republic of Uganda, therefore, wishes to reiterate its cordial relationship with the Republic of Kenya and assure the people and the Government of the Republic of Kenya of our harmonious relationship that we value."
