Dr Kiiza Besigye Says Museveni Gave In To Kagame’s Demands

Former FDC president Dr Kiiza Besigye has come out to claim how President Museveni gave in to the demands of the Rwandan president Paul Kagame.

Besigye made his remarks in regards to the reopening of the Rwandan border.

It should be recalled that the Uganda-Rwanda border of Gatuna which has been closed for the past three years was opened today.

This was as a result of negotiations between the two countries.

Rwanda accepted to reopen the border only after the first son and commander of Land Forces Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba met with Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame.

According to Besigye however the problems between the two countries are deep and not yet over.

“I think President Museveni has found himself in a tight spot with no option but to surrender to Rwanda. The President of Rwanda summed it up by saying he is not impressed by statements and photo moments. The objectives set out have to be met.

There are deep problems that are not transparent, so Ugandans can’t make an informed conclusion on the Uganda – Rwanda relations. My informed guesswork tells me that the issues between Uganda and Rwanda are not over,” Beisgye said.

The former presidential candidate also said that the border reopening is highly welcome.

This is because it impacts lives on either sides positively.

Besigye however said that unless the the conditions that led to the earlier closure are addressed, it will close again.

Meanwhile construction works are ongoing along the border.

These are aimed at reducing traffic flow along the border.
