Rwanda has announced the reopening of its land borders with Uganda, including the Gatuna-Katuna border on January 31, three years after the border was closed.
The announcement comes a week after President Paul Kagame had a meeting with Lt. General Kainerugaba Muhoozi, Commander of Land Forces (UPDF) and Special Advisor to President Museveni, in Kigali, to discuss “Rwanda’s concerns and practical steps needed to restore the relationship between Rwanda and Uganda.”
“The government of Rwanda remains committed to ongoing efforts to resolve pending issues between Rwanda and Uganda and believes that today’s announcement will contribute positively to the speedy normalisation of relations between the two countries,” says a statement by the government of Rwanda released on Wednesday.
Before Muhoozi’s visit to Kigali, Kagame had received Uganda’s envoy to the UN, Ambassador Adonija Ayebare, who reportedly had a message from President Yoweri Museveni.
Relations with Uganda deteriorated in 2017 when Rwanda accused its neighbour of harbouring groups that are hostile to Kigali and torturing innocent Rwandans on its soil.
