According to a high-ranking security official, the Ugandan government has deported 15 Rwandan nationals who had been detained for security reasons.

On Wednesday, Rwandan nationals were deported through Mirama Hills in Ntungamo region, which is on the Uganda-Rwanda border. The first batch of eight personnel was deported around 11 a.m., while others were deported at 4 p.m., according to the source, and were both greeted by Rwandan officials on the Rwandan side of Kagitumba.

The source, on the other hand, refused to say when the Rwandan nationals were apprehended, where they were apprehended, or why they were deported. He did note, though, that the deportees were all guys. The Rwandan government verified receiving 15 of its citizens who had been deported from Uganda through the Rwanda Broadcasting Agency (RBA). It did not, however, provide any other information.

After pleading guilty to illegal entrance before Kisoro Grade One Magistrate Raphael Vuenni, another six nationalities were deported from Uganda through the Chanika border in Kisoro district last week. They’d been stopped at Kanaba checkpoint on the Kisoro-Kabale road on their way to Kampala the day before, but none of them possessed travel documents.

However, after arriving in Rwanda, they claimed that they had spent 14 days in detention at the Kisoro police station through Rwanda’s online news agency, New Times Rwanda. They claimed they were abused and stripped of their belongings, including money, while in custody.

Rwanda claims that since Uganda “decided to back, sponsor, and facilitate groups bent on destabilizing Rwanda, most notably Kayumba Nyamwasa’s Rwanda National Congress-RNC and the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda-FDLR genocidal forces, life has become very difficult for Rwandan citizens traveling to Uganda or those already a resident there,” life “has become very difficult for Rwandan citizens traveling to Uganda or those already a resident there.”

Rwanda’s government has previously warned its citizens against traveling to Uganda, claiming that their safety in the neighboring country cannot be guaranteed. Since February 2019, Rwanda’s borders with Uganda have been blocked. Seven Ugandans have been killed in Rwanda since then on suspicion of smuggling. Uganda, on the other hand, disputes the allegations.
