Uganda’s outgoing ambassador to Rwanda, Richard Kabonero says the country must build on the existing good relations with Rwanda to foster regional integration and cooperation.
He was speaking at his farewell dinner in Kigali, Rwanda on Saturday evening. Kabonero is now Uganda’s ambassador designate to Tanzania.
Kabonero had served as Uganda’s ambassador in Washington from 1994 to 2005 before the appointment to Rwanda in 2006.
Kabonero will be replaced by Wonekha Oliver, 66, appointed to represent Uganda to Rwanda in January 2017. The latter has been serving as Uganda’s ambassador to the United States.
