Gen Kainerugaba Hosts Rwandan Military Delegation

posted onMay 12, 2022

The UPDF Commander Land Forces Lt Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba on Wednesday held a meeting with senior Rwandan Military Officers led by Brig Gen Vincent Nyakarundi.

Brig Nyakarundi is the Director of the Rwandan Military Intelligence. The meeting that took place in Entebbe was also attended by UPDF's Maj Gen James Birungi, the head of Military Intelligence and Col Mcdans Kamugira.

Gen Kainerugaba who is also Uganda's senior presidential adviser on special operations tweeted Thursday evening:

"Yesterday, I was honoured to receive a senior delegation of our RDF brothers, led by Brigadier General Nyakarundi, Director of DMI. The relations and close cooperation between UPDF and RDF continue to grow."


The meeting comes after President Paul Kagame's visit to Uganda recently. Gen Kagame attended Gen Kainerugaba's Birthday Dinner at State House Entebbe and held meetings with his Ugandan counterpart, President Museveni.

Relations between Uganda and Rwanda have continued to improve since Gen Kainerugaba's first visit to Rwanda in January this year. 

After his second trip to Kigali in March, Gen Kainerugaba said in a tweet that the relations with Rwanda will become even better.

Recently the CLF again noted through his Twitter handle that "there was a terrible conspiracy amongst some people in the security services that wanted us to go to war with our brothers in Rwanda. Their biggest catastrophe is that President @KagutaMuseveni appointed me CLF. Once I discovered this conspiracy, I reported to the President." 

Uganda and Rwanda share strong historical links with several families in Uganda having relatives in Rwanda and vice versa.

It is also important to note that Rwandans including President Kagame participated in Uganda's 1981-85 liberation struggle while Uganda supported the Rwandans to defeat the genocidal regime later on.
