KIGALI — President Yoweri Museveni on Sunday, December 29, 2019 sent a special message to his counterpart Paul Kagame of Rwanda.
The undisclosed package was delivered to the Rwandan capital Kigali, by Ambassador Adonia Ayebare, President Museveni’s Special Envoy to Rwanda as both countries move to end the bickering.
Rwandan presidency has since released photos of President Kagame meeting with Ambassador Ayebare although by press time, details of the package remained secret.
Rwandan presidency in a short statement confirmed President Kagame held a positive meeting with Ambassador Adonia Ayebare at Urugwiro Village.
Uganda’s Ambassador Ayebare also confimed the same on social media.
“Thank you President Paul Kagame for warmly receiving me at Urugwiro village this evening where I delivered a message from President Museveni,” he wrote.
Ayebare who is the Permanent Representative of Uganda to the United Nations described the meeting as a positive regarding the two countries’ relationship.
The message from Museveni has come after a second round of talks between Uganda and Rwanda ended this month without the two countries reaching to an agreement about resolving their differences.
The meeting, which was part of the implementation of the Luanda peace deal signed in Angola in August, also ended without any joint communique issued to the media, an indication of lack of any concrete agreement.
Rwanda’s Minister for Regional Cooperation Olivier Nduhungirehe and Rwanda’s High Commissioner to Uganda Frank Mugambage led the Kigali team. Maj.Gen.Joseph Nzabamwita, the Secretary-general for the National Intelligence and Security Service, and Gen.Patrick Nyamvumba, the Minister for Internal Security, also formed the delegation.
On the Ugandan delegation was Foreign Affairs Minister Sam Kutesa, State Minister for Internal Affairs Obiga Kania and Deputy Attorney General, Mwesigwa Rukutana.
It also comprised the head of CMI, Brig.Abel Kandiho, his deputy, Col.CK. Asiimwe, ESO Director General Joseph Ocwet and Police Crime Intelligence Director Col. Chris Ddamulira.
