President Paul Kagame received Ugandan Foreign Affairs Minister, Sam Kutesa yesterday and the two had talks on integration and the state of bilateral relations.

Through her twitter account, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Cooperation and East African Community Affairs, Louise Mushikiwabo announced that Kutesa also imparted President Yoweri Museveni’s message to his Rwandan counterpart.

“President Kagame today received my Ugandan counterpart, Sam Kutesa, with a message from President Museveni, a good discussion mainly on integration,” reads her tweet.

During the discussion, Kagame stressed that for integration to be successful, there has to be something for everybody where all partners must win.

They also talked about recent fatal arrests faced by different Rwandans in Uganda, things which caused fears among Rwandan citizens working or travelling in Uganda.

“Also discussed, and linked to regional integration, was the state of bilateral relations, including continuing arrests and disappearances of Rwandan citizens in Uganda causing tension and many Rwandan families to petition their government to intervene for their loved ones,” Mushikiwabo tweeted.

Speaking to IGIHE recently, the Ambassador of Rwanda in Uganda, Maj. Gen. Frank Mugambage confirmed the crisis in diplomatic relations between the two countries saying that Rwanda was seeking the solution.

He said that they wrote to Ugandan government asking clarification about illegal detention that Rwandans were facing.
