From the 4th quadripartite at Katuna/Gatuna border, President Museveni stopped to address people who had gathered at different centres hoping to hear of the outcomes of the engagements with presidents Paul Kagame (Rwanda), Felix Tshisekedi (DRC), and João Lourenço (Angola).
“My sympathies go out to the citizens of Uganda and Rwanda that have been affected by the closure of the Katuna border,” Museveni said.
Speaking to the residents, Museveni called upon border dwellers to be patient as they pursue a lasting solution.
“I am very optimistic that with the independent facilitators from Angola and Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) the truth will come out because the NRM government stands for the truth.”
He added: “Nonetheless, I encourage our people to work hard, to shift from traditional agriculture methods and together we move towards wealth creation.”
“The government is here to support you,” he assured them.
According to presidential press secretary, Lindah Nabusayi, thousands of Ugandans waited for Museveni at Katuna town and Kabale Municipality.
Museveni told them that with the independent facilitators from Angola and DRC, the truth will come out because the NRM government stands for the truth.
