Uganda on Tuesday to handed over 13 Rwandan detainees to Rwanda as sign of commitment to implement the agreement that was signed in August in Luanda, Angola to ease tensions between Uganda and Rwanda.

This is in addition to the nine Rwandans who were released last month.

According to Uganda’s Foreign Minister, Mr Sam Kutesa, the gesture was an option the government has chosen in order to facilitate normalisation of relations in the context of the Luanda process.

Rwanda President Paul Kagame and his Ugandan counterpart, Yoweri Museveni signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) in Angola’s capital Luanda. The agreement was witnessed by Presidents Joao Lourenco (Angola) and Felix Tshisekedi (DR Congo).

Mr Museveni and Mr Kagame are set to meet at Katuna border on February 21.

Mr Kutesa said in a statement that; “it is Uganda’s expectation that Rwanda too will reciprocate the goodwill gesture by addressing the concerns that Uganda has raised, including the Ugandans still incarcerated in in Rwanda, within the Luanda framework and which require immediate attention.”
