By Spy Uganda
The government of Uganda has deported 32 Rwandan nationals suspected to have been spies and others who were allegedly involved in subversive activities.
The group of 32 men and women was driven by operatives from the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) and deposited at Kagitumba on Friday, pending removal to Rwanda.
It is said that they had been in CMI custody for several months but following the August 19 Peace pact signed between presidents Yoweri Museveni and Paul Kagame in Angola, an agreement was reached between the two governments to release the said prisoners.
A letter dated September 12, issued by Marcellino Bwesigye, the Acting Commissioner Legal and Inspection Service at the Ministry of Internal Affairs to the Commissioner, Immigration Control, about the release of these suspects, reads partly thus;
“Attention: The In-Charge, Immigration
DEPORATTION IN RESPECT OF 32 RWANDANS INV/357/19
The above mentioned persons are Rwandan Nationals Referred from C.M.I to affect their removal for illegal entry and illegal stay.
The subjects are therefore PROHIBITED IMMIGRANTS who should be deported back to their home country. Attached herein is a list of the DEPORTEES.”
The Letter also adds that ” This is therefore to forward them to you with the request that you ensure their removal to their home country Rwanda and ensure details are captured in the PISCES system.”
It should however be noted that when Rwanda closed her borders to Uganda a few months ago, they accused the Ugandan government of among other things keeping several Rwandans in detention without producing them in courts to be charged.
