Three Ugandan businessmen are being held in Rwanda. They include; Mr Bosco Nkwasiibwe, a resident of Kamwezi Sub County in Rukiga District, Mr Dauliano Orikurungi from Kabale District and Mr Siliaco Orishaba from Rubanda District.

Ms Peninah Karungi, a wife to Nkwasiibwe told this reporter on Sunday that the victims were arrested by Rwandan security operatives on Thursday morning.

The Rukiga District Vice Chairperson, Mr Jackson Muganiizi, said that the victims were arrested from Kamwezi while crossing back into Uganda from Nyagatare District in Rwanda, where they had gone to visit their relatives.

He said.

Their arrest comes at a time when Uganda and Rwanda are negotiating a possible re-opening of the border at Katuna, which has been closed for a year.
