Uganda’s State Minister for Housing, Dr. Chris Baryomunsi has today come out and cited one of the reasons for the ongoing tensions between Uganda and neighbour Rwanda.

The minnister while appearing in radio capital’s weekly capital gang-show cited that the reason for the continued tension and bickering between the countries is because the Rwandan leader Paul Kagame is just seeking for attention.

“The leader of our neighbour Rwanda, Paul Kagame is just looking for attention, he is like one of the kings in ancient history who burnt down a well respected church in Europe just in sought for attention and fame,He is the current leader of East African Community but he is closing the border ,which kind of leadership is that” The mister said before a heated argument between Government spokesperson Ofwono Opondo and the show moderator broke out.

Rwanda President Paul Kagame has in the past days said that he is not about to tell Rwandans to start traveling to Uganda again because he has no control over their safety while here.

Since closing the Gatuna border in February last year, Rwandan security forces have been blocking Rwandans including workers and students from crossing to Uganda following a protracted diplomatic dispute.

Addressing more than 60 diplomats at the home of the Presidency in Kigali on Wednesday evening, Kagame said there were still hundreds of Rwandans in Ugandan jails and that telling his people they were safe in Kampala would be an absolute lie.

This perhaps gave the clearest hint on the progress of the efforts to resolve the dispute between Rwanda and Uganda, indicating the two countries are far from reaching a resolution. Kagame told diplomats “there is always going to be work to do”.

“We have had hundreds of Rwandans arrested in Uganda. And we have raised this matter with Ugandan authorities. We have families of hundreds of families coming and appealing to us asking why don’t you ask Uganda to release our people,” he said.

He told Rwandans “just stop going there because if you go there, I have no control. They may arrest you, and your families will come to me and say you have been arrested. And there is nothing I can do about it.”

He added those released have “been dying as they arrive back home. If you do a postmortem you find they have been tortured very badly.”

Kagame revealed that he and Museveni will be going back to Luanda, Angola soon to review the progress in implementing what was agreed in the first meeting in August last year.
