The President, who recently acknowledged that he is not computer literate, seems to have realised the urgency of using social media platforms to communicate with the people he leads.

It remains unclear if Museveni will individually manage his Twitter account.

However, Presidents all over the world have handlers to manage their social media accounts.

The President’s Special Communications Assistant, Sarah Kagingo had earlier today hinted on Museveni starting to tweet.

The Ugandan leader now joins other heads-of-state on the popular micro-blogging site.

Chimp experts say if well managed, Museveni can easily reach out to the youth through Twitter ahead of the 2016 elections.

Other active prominent government officials on social media include Uganda’s Ambassador to Rwanda, Richard Kabonero and Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi, Regional Cooperation Minister Asuman Kiyingi and Presidency Minister Frank Tumwebaze among others.
