Kigali: In the Bible, after God had sent several disciples on earth in trying to save the world from further sins, and most of them were being suspected of betraying him when they reached the earth and probably finding life was seemingly more entertaining, he finally resolved to send his only son,Jesus Christ in whom he had all his trust. If it was a gun,that was his bullet. Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni,in trying to pursue peace with Rwanda’s Paul Kagame, he sent several envoys including his most trusted, Uganda’s permanent envoy to US Adonai Ayebare. But in his wisdom,it was time he sends his only first son Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba, who is also the Senior Presidential Advisor in charge of Special Operations.
Muhoozi held a tête-à-tête with President Paul Kagame at Village Urugwiro where they discussed the restoration of bilateral ties between the two countries.
Kainerugaba was received at Kigali International Airport by Brig Gen Willy Rwagasana, the Commandant of Republican Guard and Col. Ronald Rwivanga, the Defence and Military Spokesperson, among others.
The consecutive bilateral visits are seen as the latest effort towards normalizing relations which have been strained for at least four years, according to regional security experts.
Last week, Kainerugaba, an avid user of the microblogging site Twitter, had posted a tweet, which was welcomed by many in which he warned those fighting President Kagame.
“This is my uncle, Afande Paul Kagame. Those who fight him are fighting my family. They should all be careful.”
The relations between Rwanda and Uganda were strained following a number of grievances by the former which the latter had failed to address.
These included hosting hostile groups which use Uganda as a base to plan activities to destabilise Rwanda and enjoy support from some Ugandan public institutions.
Others include the arbitrary arrest, abduction, torture and illegal detention of Rwandans by Ugandan security forces, among others.
The Ugandan government has dismissed the allegation as not true.
On the other side, Uganda accuses Rwanda of infiltrating its security agencies, with authorities saying some Rwandan security officials had direct and indirect contact with key strategic security personnel in Uganda who have sent information outside of official channels to Rwanda, a claim the Kigali establishment denies.
