Since 2019, the two presidents have had a series of meetings mediated by  Angolan president Joao Manuel Goncalves Laurenco. These meetings didn’t yield conclusive  amicable results until the recent visit of Uganda’s commander of land forces and presidential advisor on security  General Muhoozi Kainerugaba who also doubles as president Museveni’s son to Kigali.

After the meeting, Museveni’s son said he was optimistic about the possibility of of the restoration of relations between Kampala and Kigali.


“I thank President Paul Kagame for the very warm reception my delegation and I received in Kigali today. We held very cordial and in-depth discussions about how to improve our bilateral relations,” said Lt Gen Kainerugaba.

“I’m confident that under the leadership of our two Presidents we shall be able to quickly restore our historical good relations.”

For his part, Kagame said discussions with Museveni’s son were “cordial, productive and forward looking about Rwanda’s concerns and practical steps needed to restore the relationship between Rwanda and Uganda.”

Relations between Uganda and Rwanda have remained cold in recent years, with the latter closing its Katuna/Gatuna border point in 2019.

Both countries accuse each other of plotting to destabilize their respective governnments and nations.

Months ago, Rwanda was accused of using spying software to track Ugandan government officials mobile phones.
