Rwanda says UK should pressure Uganda not to support FDLR and RNC


Rwanda’s State Minister in Charge of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Olivier Nduhungirehe says United Kingdom could be a good go between in Rwanda and Uganda conflict by pressuring Kampala not to support FDLR rebels and Kayumba’s Rwanda Natonal Congress.

While replying to The Chronicles tweet citing “UK Would Be Happy to Offer Mediation Support in Rwanda-Uganda Conflict- Envoy”, Nduhungirehe said there is no need for development.

Rwanda doesn’t need mediation with Uganda. This moral equivalence should stop. If Government of UK want to be helpful, it should rather pressure Kampala to release a hundred of Rwandan citizens held incommunicado in CMI cells for more than 2 years and to stop supporting FDLR and RNC.” He added

The comment comes on heels with many other NGOS and Law societies in the region showing interest in providing solutions to the tension between two countries via mediation.

Rwanda accuses Uganda of mistreating its citizens and harboring its dissidents including Kayumba Nyamwasa and FDL, rebels based in Eastern DR Congo. However, Uganda denies all these charges.
