The minister for Information, Communication Technology (ICT) and National Guidance Hon.Frank Tumwebaze Kagyiigi has hailed presidents Yoweri Kaguta Museveni (Uganda) and Paul Kagame of Rwada upon singing a peace pact that would see the two countries’ citizens enjoy brotherly trade and co-existence that once existed.
Museveni and Kagame on Wednesday while in Angolan capital Luanda, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to foster peace and regional cooperation within the East and Central African region.
While commending them over the gesture, minister Tumwebaze tweeted thus;
“I congratulate our respective Principals H.E@KagutaMuseveni & H.E@PaulKagame
for making deliberate efforts to normalize relations btn our countries.Tensed relations were creating no winner in all this.Let us also moderate our views online& respect what our principals hv agreed.”
The MoU was signed following a quadripartite summit held on Wednesday in Luanda, Angola, which was hosted by Angolan president Joao Manuel Lourenco and attended by DR Congo President Felix Tshisekedi. The MoU signing was also witnessed by President Sassou Nguesso of the Republic of Congo.
While commenting about the developments reached upon by the two heads of state, president Kagame noted that;“I want to start by thanking President Lourenço and President Tshisekedi for the work & wise council they put into this process of bringing us together, President Museveni of Uganda and myself, to resolve any problems that have been existing between our two countries.”
The MoU is aimed at solving the diplomatic tension between Uganda and Rwanda, which saw the latter close her borders at Katuna and Kyanika several months ago.
