Rwanda President Paul Kagame has this morning arrived in Uganda for a one-day visit, and will hold talks with host President Yoweri Museveni at State House Entebbe.
By press time details of the meeting between the two presidents were scanty but officials had earlier indicated the talks would focus on bilateral relations.
Kagame’ visit comes at a time when relations between Rwanda and Uganda are reportedly frosty following a series of events officials from both countries say are aimed at undermining each other’s sovereignty.
And just last week President Museveni failed to attend the Africa Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) Summit in Kigali, reportedly on the advice of his ‘advance team’.
The two presidents, former comrades-in-arms during the bush war between 1981 and 1985 that brought the National Resistance Movement/Army (NRM/A) government to power in 1986 last met at the AU Heads of State Summit in Addis Ababa early this year.
