Kagame speaks out on Rwanda-Uganda relations

In a revealing interview with The East African, Rwandan President Paul Kagame said the tensions between Uganda and Rwanda can be resolved through dialogue.

All I can say is that it’s a matter that can be resolved. That must be resolved. Because the alternative is not something that we should even be thinking about, or entertaining…” Kagame said.

The new EAC chairman also said Rwanda’s relations with Burundi and Uganda will not be affected by Rwanda’s chair of the regional body. Kagame who recently handed as AU chairman to Egypt’s El Sisi said Rwanda and Uganda relations had worsened because the latter chose to believe information from Rwandan dissidents based in South Africa.

The 61 year leader also cited the Africa Free Continental Trade Area agreement as one of his proudest achievements saying he was lucky to build on the efforts of other leaders.



  1. Kagame cannot pick and choose. Why should or must Rwanda and Uganda have a dialogue but it shouldn’t or mustn’t be the case with his once erstwhile friends now considered dissidents. Who he has hunted down even when they have sought for asylum elsewhere. Rwanda/Africa is stuck with Kagame the same Uganda is with Museveni. It can only be a blessing if both men sorted out each other.

  2. The problem between Uganda and Rwanda is not interstate. It is the problem among few individuals within those two countries.
    However, all that emanates from greed for power.

  3. it would be ok if two parties would come on the same table and solve the issue rather than the poor people being affected with the situation. there is on problem without a solution please our dear presidents solve the issue for the poor person to be happy and take care of the rest. Thank you

  4. it hurts when you wake up and you are not allowed to visit the family you once shared good memories. leaders in Uganda and Rwanda must look at Rwanda and Uganda as bigger that small personal disagreements. please let us compromise.
