Social media chatter.
“If his (the journalists) wife and children see that picture, they will know what it means working for the family,” Sylvier Byabisajja posted.
“Since it’s Muhoozi it’s not fine to people, but it’s very okay if it is Kabaka (the King),” wondered Roonix Mutegeki.
“I guess he was kneeling to balance the height,” Albert Nyakahuma suggested.
“What was he supposed to do? Stand and bend pointing his butt(ocks) to who? Muhoozi’s wife or the other man? Some things need common sense,” one Dorothy Bonge asked.
“But what’s strange about a journalist bending to catch a news clip?” asked Justus Amanya.
