The Uganda Police had distanced itself from allegations of arresting, harassing and torturing Rwandese nationals in Uganda.
While addressing on Monday at the police headquarters in Naguru, Police spokesperson Fred Enanga said the force does not have any Rwandan nationals in custody nor have any information in regards to such.
Today marks the 6th day since Rwanda closed off access to Katuna border to trucks coming from Uganda.
While explaining Rwanda’s position on the border dispute, the Rwanda Foreign minister Richard Sezibera claimed that Uganda is harassing Rwandan nationals within its territory.
In response, Enanga challenged Rwanda to issue an official complaint with the Uganda foreign affairs ministry.
Presently, Ugandan government officials are engaged in diplomatic talks with their Rwandan counterparts to resolve the dispute that has reignited fears that the two countries relations might deteriorate further.
