Patrick Kanyomozi is the new president of Ugandans on Twitter (UOT).
He replaces AIGP Asan Kasingye who held the position for two years.
The KFM sports presenter won a landslide victory with 69% last week, beating journalists Patrick Mukasa who got 11%, Methia Lydia got 9% and businessman and politician Paul Owori got 11%.
When Kasingye congratulated Kanyomozi saying he is going to do a very good job, the President of Uganda Sports Press Association (USPA) cheekily asked him if he will be receiving a gun as well for his new role.
Kasingye, the Police Chief Political Commissar, said that was impossible but pledged to rally behind him in steering them to shape public opinion.
“My last piece of advice, if you have anyone blocked, unblock and start from a new lease of life. Tolerate malicious criticism.”
Meanwhile, the same week was Kanyomozi’s birthday, doubling the happiness.
