The Minister for Presidency, Ms Esther Mbayo, has warned Ugandans against going to Rwanda after incidents of shooting to death of suspected smugglers.

In an August 4 leaked letter titled; ‘Border incursion by Rwandan security forces on Ugandan territory’ by Ms Mbayo to Resident District Commissioners, she told Ugandans that it is too risky for them to travel to Rwanda.

“A directive to you all the RDCs, especially those in the districts bordering Rwanda, to inform the Ugandans of the criminal Rwanda government policy of shooting smugglers that are not armed, although what they are doing is illegal.
Ugandans should stop going into Rwanda or those who go should do so at their own risk,” the letter reads in part.

Efforts to get a comment from Ms Mbayo about the letter were futile as her mobile phone contacts were switched off.
Ms Judith Nabakooba, the Minister of Information and ICT, did not respond to our questions about the letter.

However, sources at the President’s office confirmed that the letter is genuine, but the minister had released it without making deep consultations.

The relationship between the two countries has been tense with each accusing the other of funding groups that stabilize their governments.
