President Museveni has promised to settle his differences with Rwandan President Paul Kagame so as to normalise the relations between the two countries.
Museveni made the pledge Tuesday while addressing countrymen and Countrywomen and especially the Bazzukulu.
“Congratulations on finishing 2019 and a happy 2020. In the New Year, I will talk about Education, Land Evictions and Corruption. I will, also, respond to those who responded to my message on the registration of voters,” he said.
He went on: “However, for today, I just wanted to inform you that I received Ambassador Adonia Ayebare, who had gone as my special envoy to President Kagame, on the issue of the tensions between our two countries.
Ambassador Ayebare was well received by H.E Paul Kagame and they had very fruitful discussions. Soon, the two sides will be taking decisive actions to end the tension.”
Adonia met Kagame on Sunday at the Office of the Rwanda President in Kigali where he delivered Museveni’s message.
Details of the message have not been released yet, but Ambassador Ayebare said, “thank you President Paul Kagame for warmly receiving me at Urugwiro village this evening where I delivered a message from President Museveni.”
Ayebare is the Permanent Representative of Uganda to the United Nations.
Kagame in turn described the meeting as a “positive one”.
On Tuesday, Museveni noted: “Uganda, I can guarantee, will do its share of the normalization of the relations between our two countries.”
He added: “I salute H.E Kagame, the brotherly people of Rwanda and the people of Uganda.”
