LUANDA – Rwandan President Paul Kagame and his Ugandan counterpart Yoweri Museveni are on Friday expected to shed more light on the political tensions affecting their countries when they meet in Angola for talks on security matters in the Great Lakes.
According to local news agencies, both President Museveni and Kagame will attend the one-day Quadripartite Summit in the Angolan capital, Luanda, on an invitation by Angolan President João Lourenço.
Kampala and Kigali have been feuding since 2017 leading to a breakdown in relations early this year that affected the flow of goods and people across their common border.
Rwanda accuses Uganda of supporting rebels and dissidents opposed to Kagame’s government, a charge that Museveni denies.
Uganda also accuses Kigali of conducting espionage on its soil and infiltrating its security apparatus.
The DRC armed rebel situation is also likely to be on the table as the country borders all the three countries that will be represented at the summit. Congolese President Felix Tshisekedi is also expected to attend the function.
Rwanda, Angola and Uganda host millions of Congolese refugees.
The four heads of state are also expected to discuss the Ebola crisis in eastern DR Congo which has claimed over 1,600 people, according to World Health Organisation.
