Some of the deported Ugandans
Five Ugandans who were being detained in Rwanda have been deported and declared prohibited immigrants.
They are Gilbert Beingana, Amos Tibesiga and Nicholas Tumwesigye, all residents of Kabale district. Others include; Ivan Nirinyiyimana and Beatha Nyiramuco, from Kisoro district.
The five were arrested last week for illegal entry into Rwanda. In a statement released today Tuesday by Francois Regis Gatarahiya, Rwanda’s director general of Immigration and Emigration, the five were deported back to Uganda because they were prohibited immigrants in Rwanda.
Gideon Turyatunga, a brother to Beingana says that the five were deported and dumped at Uganda-Rwanda border of Chanika in Kisoro district today morning.
Diplomatic tensions between Uganda and Rwanda are at their lowest following the shooting dead of two Ugandans two weeks ago on allegations of smuggling leading to a strong protest from Uganda.
Rwanda closed its borders with Uganda in February 2019 with Rwanda President Paul Kagame later accusing Ugandan authorities of abducting its citizens and locking them up in ungazetted areas. Rwanda also accused Uganda of hosting and facilitating dissidents especially Rwanda National Congress (RNC) and the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR), which have declared war on the Kigali government.
Rwanda advised its citizens against travelling to Uganda, saying it can’t guarantee their safety. Likewise, Uganda accused Rwanda of destabilising its internal security by infiltrating her security agencies.

The same Africans who are flocking to Europe especially UK bleat like sheep condemning those countries to have borders. These hypocritical Africans are blowing nonsensical noises that there must be NO borders mimicking their so called human rights to “invade” those countries.
Yet where they come from (in Africa)they are borders resulting in those who cross them to be deported as if the victims like those deported from Rwanda, a “friendly” neighbour don’t have the so called human rights to live in Rwanda .
What did these poor deportees do apart from being in a country which should be their other home?
As if that is not hypocritical enough to me the name of one of the hapless victims Nirinyiyimana sounds typical Rwandese. Yet we keep on talking about brotherhood which exists only in theory. Only Divine Mercy’s intervention will rescue Africa from the pit of backwardness.

In other words, if we go with Mr. M7’s edict of “an eye for an eye”, how many Rwandese in Uganda who are persona non gratta?
Just asking. Quote | Report to administrator 0 #3 rubangakene 2019-11-19 22:39 Welcome home, where we shall all “suffer together”.
You see in Rwanda, there are no “low hanging fruits” to pick from, everyone is toiling with hoes and whatever tools, developing together their once broken country, not stealing from each other. KAMATA JEMBE HAPA, HAKUNA MCHEZO HUKO KIGALI!

Both countries should deal with the brainless smugglers and once these smugglers/thieves stop their thing, and there may be a cordial relationship again and Africans won’t be ashamed!!!!
