BY: Eyalama In News On

Uganda has handed over to Rwanda seven of its nationals who were on Tuesday freed by the General Court Martial.

Foreign Affairs minister Sam Kuteesa handed over the group to Rwanda High Commissioner Frank Mugambage at a function held at Kampala Serena Hotel on Wednesday.

The seven include Rene Rutagungira, Bahati Mugenga, Emmanuel Rwamuco, Augustine Rutisiri, Etienne Nsanzabahizi, Charles Byaruhanga and Claude Iyakaleme.

On Tuesday, the Army prosecution led by Lt Col Raphael Mugisha tendered before the court a document indicating that they had lost interest in the case. The court presided over by Lt General Andrew Gutti later endorsed the withdrawal of the charges and set the suspects free.

The release of the suspects comes a week after President Yoweri Museveni promised that the tensions between the two countries will be solved. Tensions started in early 2019 after Rwanda closed its Gatuna and Chanika borders and issued a Travel Advisory in which it warned its citizens against travelling to Uganda.
