claimed that the death was another of endless cases of Rwandan
civilians abducted and illegally detained, most times kept in unknown places in
Uganda. The news agency also claimed that Ntwari Bahati, another Rwandan
national was discovered dead from apparent strangulation, in the Ugandan capital
Kampala on the eve of Sunday, August 29.
According to the news agency, there
was also an attempt to burn the body of the deceased man, who worked as a car
mechanic in Kampala. He had lived in Uganda for four years.
The news agency says that ever 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 resident there".
government of Rwanda has previously warned nationals against traveling to Uganda,
indicating that their safety cannot be guaranteed in the neighboring country. Rwanda has closed its borders with Uganda since February
2019. But since then seven Ugandans have been shot dead in Rwanda on
accusations of smuggling.
