KIGALI- Uganda’s foreign affairs minister Sam Kuteesa on Thursday delivered to Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame a ‘Special Message’ from his Ugandan counterpart, President Yoweri Museveni.

According to Uganda Media Centre, the duo also discussed issues of bilateral interest and pledged to work closely to broaden and deepen corporation between the two neighboring countries.

Museveni’s letter comes days after President Kagame announced an unexpected shake-up in his Cabinet, military and police command dropping his long-serving defence minister  Gen. James Kabarebe and Police boss Emmaul Gasane.

Although Museveni’s letter to Kagame was undisclosed to the media, pundits say the letter included among others the ‘frosty’ relations between Kampala and Kigali and the recent cabinet and military reshuffle.

The two leaders have recently denied there was no love lost between them and their countries

Uganda Media Centre also confirmed that minister Kuteesa had earlier met with Dr Richard Sezibera the newly appointed Minister of Foreign Affairs, Cooperation and the East African Community.
