President Museveni has assured Ugandans that the tension between once brotherly countries; Uganda and Rwanda will end very soon.
July this year, Chairman of the Sudan Transitional Military Council, H.E. Abdel fattah Al-Burhan, described President Museveni as a father and a wise man of Africa who has a lot of experience, which can be given to Africa as a whole.
In yet another attempt to patch up strained relations between the two brotherly countries, President Museveni on Sunday sent a special message to his Rwanda counterpart
‘ ‘ I received Ambassador Adonia Ayebare, who had gone as my special envoy to President Kagame, on the issue of the tensions between our two countries.’’ President Museveni said on Tuesday evening
He added: Ambassador Ayebare was well received by H.E Paul Kagame and they had very fruitful discussions. Soon, the two sides will be taking decisive actions to end the tension.
The president assured ‘ ‘I can guarantee, will do its share of the normalization of the relations between our two countries.’’
‘ ‘I salute H.E Kagame, the brotherly people of Rwanda and the people of Uganda.’’ he said.
The Rwanda border with Uganda at Gatuna has been closed since February 2019 – which has seen trade between two countries tumble to near zero.
Rwanda says Uganda supports armed groups that are attempting to overthrow the Kigali administration. Uganda denies this and accuses Kigali of infiltrating the country’s security agencies.
