President Paul Kagame has once again urged Rwandans not to travel to Uganda, as relations between the two countries remain cold.
In a televised interview on Sunday on State agency, Rwanda Broadcasting Agency, President Kagame said Rwandans fear travelling to Uganda due to the alleged illegal arrests and torture they face.
President Kagame is quoted to have said the only way to avoid this problem is by not going to Uganda because if you cross the border and they arrest and beat you or rob you.
Rwanda issued a travel advisory against Uganda in March 2019 and closed its most lucrative border with Uganda – Gatuna/Katuna.
This came after Rwanda accused Uganda of supporting and facilitating rebels, as well as of illegally arresting and torturing its citizens.
On the other hand, Uganda has accused Rwanda of conducting espionage on its soil.
Several bilateral meetings that involved leaders from regional countries – Angola and DRC – have not yielded much results in solving the impasse between the two East African neighbors. END
