The son of Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni says the country’s military could be called a single day to crack down on those who try to overthrow the regime, as happened to Guinea’s President Alpha Condé.
Lt Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba, formerly the commander of the ground forces, wrote on twitter that the rebels had been “lined up.”
The message included a photo of Col Mamady Doumbuya, the military leader who led the coup in Guinea.
Last week, Mr Museveni called on the rebels in Guinea to “step down” and said that what they were doing was “taking a step back”.
“It was in the 1960s – it was part of the African crisis, so I condemned the coup,” he told France 24.
Mr. Condé – the third president of Guinea – was ousted on the 5th of this month by members of the Special Forces, accusing him of weapons and corruption.
The coup was strongly condemned by West African countries, but many Guineans have indicated they are on the verge of overthrowing the 83-year-old president, but are urging the military to return to civilian rule.
