Under the hashtag #MKAt48, the upcoming birthday party of Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni’s powerful son Muhoozi Kainerugaba on 24 April, looks set to be ‘the place to be.’

How do you measure a politician’s strength and the bankability of his or her future career? Perhaps by the size of his birthday celebrations rather than the diplomatic markings of purely political events.

With a birthday banner already flying at Kampala’s Lugogo Stadium, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni’s only male heir is taking the opportunity to count the number of aficionados he has, especially on his Twitter feed.
