Rwanda expels 23 Ugandans


Rwanda has kicked out 23 Ugandans who were working in the country.

The Kisoro Resident District Commissioner (RDC), Peter Mugisha, told Daily Monitor the group was expelled over the weekend.

He said on Sunday, they received 23 Ugandans that were picked up from their workplaces in Rwanda and dropped off at Kyanika Border Post in Kisoro District.

There was no official communication from Rwanda about the offence the deported Ugandans had committed.

He said the Ugandans were working with road construction companies and many of them were from Nebbi and Tororo districts.

Mugisha warned Ugandans against crossing to Rwanda until the misunderstandings between the two countries are resolved.

The ad hoc committee that was appointed to implement the pact signed by the Ugandan and Rwandan presidents in Angola, in August was supposed to meet this month only to be postponed indefinitely.  

The expulsion of Ugandans was followed by the deportation of 32 Rwandans from Kisoro district of western Uganda.

They pleaded guilty to illegal entry into Uganda.
