Kagame's Uganda Visit Preparations In High Gear


A delegation from Rwanda led by the Minister in the President’s Office in Charge of Information and Communications Technology Hon. Ignace Gatare met ICT Minister Ruhakana Rugunda on November 16.

In a joint press brief in Kampala, remedy story Gatare said: “The objective of the visit was to discuss and share experiences with regard to areas of cooperation as elaborated in the MoU on ICT sector, and lay ground for implementation.”

However, informed government officials say the trip was aimed at laying ground for Kagame’s State visit scheduled for early December.

He is expected to attend the Young Achievers’ Awards ceremony at Common Wealth Resort, Munyonyo, Kampala on December 11.

President Yoweri Museveni in July made a surprising trip to Rwanda where he spent nearly a week, touring the country.

The trip enhanced relations between Rwanda and Uganda after years of counter-espionage accusations.

“Ugandans, especially businessmen will benefit hugely from our good relations with Rwanda. The goodwill of Rwanda is good for our country. Trade will boom,” Foreign Affairs Permanent Secretary Amb. James Mugume told us shortly after Museveni’s trip.

Sources say a desk at the Foreign Affairs Ministry has been created to make adequate preparations for Kagame’s trip.

Kagame was one of the NRA commandoes who participated in the successful attack on Kabamba Barracks, which was a turning point for President Museveni’s guerilla war.

He was later appointed military intelligence boss after Museveni captured power.

Kagame took over command of the Rwanda Patriotic Front shortly after the mysterious death of Fred Rwigyema. He led RPF to capture power and end genocide in Rwanda.
