Ambassador Woeste, according to the newspaper left Kigali after Rwanda intelligence authorities accessed an email he had written to the headquarters in Berlin, criticising the Rwanda government.

The Rwandan Ambassador to Uganda, Maj Gen Frank Mugambage’s phone was off and couldn’t not be reached for a comment.
