Uganda’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Adonia Ayabale has been accused of undermining Foreign Affairs Minister Sam Kutesa and other top Kampala officials as far as the current talks with Rwandan leader Paul Kagame are concerned.
According to a reliable source, about a month ago, Ayabale having known that President Museveni and Paul Kagame were due to meet for a second round of talks in Angola, he made contacts with some officials in Kigali establishment positioning himself as an emissary sent by President Museveni to President Kagame before flying to Angola. However as this was happening, Minister Kutesa wasn’t aware of anything.
Nevertheless, Amb. Ayabale succeeded in his mission but upon returning to Kampala, he did same without informing Mr. Kutesa and yet he is the chief foreign officer of Uganda. Sources at Foreign Affairs say Ayabale wants to replace Kutesa as Foreign Affairs Minister.
Sources further allege that Ayabale further after meeting with President Museveni he personally wanted every bit of the discussion with the head of state posted on his social media handles including those of President Museveni so as President Kagame could see that he had delivered his message.
His methodologies have further been probed by security that think he could be undermining their work. He is also reportedly not in good terms with Amb. Olive Wonekha Uganda’s High Commission to Kigali over same matter.
