General Muhoozi Kainerugaba, the son of Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, has waded into the debate concerning the invasion of   President Uhuru Kenyatta’s family-owned Northlands Farm, threatening to send Uganda People's Defence Forces (UPDF) to hunt down the goons.

The controversial leader took to social media on Saturday to describe the retired Head of State as his ‘big brother’ expressing his displeasure regarding Monday’s incident.

He went ahead to claim that the country would also send UPDF to guard the ex-president, adding that they would also "physically assault" the offenders.

“My big brother's farm was attacked by hooligans the other day. We will send UPDF to protect him. We will beat those hooligans to a pulp!” he wrote on Twitter.

Muhoozi continued, "I asked Mzee to deploy me as the OC (Officer Commanding) at Northlands. All we need is 200 UPDF soldiers to bring order. He asked me why? I told him that Kenyans need a good beating. He refused."

The Northlands Farm located in Ruiru along the Eastern Bypass was attacked by unknown goons on Monday during the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition anti-government protests.

The assailants are said to have cut down trees, made away with at least 1400 sheep, and later a portion of the property burn down. 

Following the incident, the government assured protection of the property of the ex-president.

Last year, Gen Muhoozi ignited an online storm with Kenyans after a purported plan "to invade Kenya" where he shared a series of tweets and threatened to seize Nairobi. He later apologized.
