President Yoweri Museveni has appointed Maj Tom Magambo who has been in the Internal Security Organisations(ISO) as the new police Criminal Investigations Director.
“President Museveni has promoted Private Tom Magambo to the rank of Major and appointed him Director Criminal Investigations of the Uganda Police Force,” the acting UPDF spokesperson, Lt Col Ronald Kakurungu said in a statement.
Kampala: The Rwanda government spokesperson, Yolande Makolo has watered down Uganda’s efforts to mend the broken relationship between the two neighboring countries saying Uganda must take action instead of sending special messages.
Yolande’s comment follows a special message from President Museveni to President Paul Kagame delivered by Adonia Ayebare, Uganda’s Permanent Representative.
While Ayebare declined to reveal the details of the ‘special message’ for now, it’s suspected to be in relation to the ongoing conflict between the two countries which was triggered by Rwanda’s decision to close its border with Uganda in 2019.
In her message, Makolo insists that Uganda is responsible for the harassment and torture of innocent Rwandans in Uganda which she said has continued despite the efforts by the two governments to settle the ongoing conflicts.
”Good to see talks continue at all levels, but meetings & envoy visits have not led to tangible results on Uganda’s part. Still no accountability for terrorist elements operating against Rwanda inside Uganda, and harassment of innocent Rwandans continues” Yolande wrote on Twitter.
Recently the minister of state for International Relations Henry Okello Oryem refuted the claims of any conflicts between Uganda and Rwanda saying they are not enemies.
“Disagreements are not new in diplomacy. We are not enemies with Rwanda. Disagreements do not mean we will not work together,” he said.
