Rwanda arrests Ugandans


Rwanda has once again arrested Ugandans for entering its territory.

Gordon Tugumisirize, Zabulon Komunda and Marvelous Naturinda, all residents of Bwaya village in Buramba Parish, Kabale District, were on Thursday arrested.

Uganda Radio Network [URN] reported that the trio had entered Kivuye Market in Burera District, in Rwanda’s Northern Province, to sell sorghum.

The three men were surrounded and arrested by security operatives.

They are being detained at Burera District police headquarters.

Saime Twesigwome, the Rubaya Sub-county chairperson, told URN five other Ugandans who were also selling sorghum in the market fled and crossed back to Uganda.

Many Ugandans have been arrested while others shot dead in Rwanda since the Gatuna border closure in February 2019.
