Has Gen. Henry Tumukunde been a thorn to Rwanda-Uganda relations?


The sacking of Uganda Minister of Security Rtd. Lt.Gen. Henry Tumukunde has ushered Rwanda-Uganda relations. The proof is that Rwandan President Paul Kagame on Sunday visited President Museveni at State House Entebbe where the duo chewed words for more than two hours.This follows a long time without Kagame setting his foot in Uganda.

Museveni said security chiefs are responsible for some misunderstandings because they failed to communicate  regularly what was going on

“On security matters, there is no fundamental problem between Rwanda and Uganda,” said  Museveni.

“A number of incidents that are being commented about in the media, many would be properly addressed if only there was better communication. We have phones, we should talk more.” He added
