Ugandan officials are expected to host their Rwandan counterparts in the capital, Kampala, for a meeting on Friday on the implementation of a treaty to end tensions between the two East African neighbours.

The meeting was initially scheduled for 17 October, but was postponed.

The diplomatic dispute started after both countries traded allegations of interference in each other’s affairs.

A Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, signed by Ugandan President, Yoweri Museveni and Rwandan President, Paul Kagame in August, in Luanda, Angola,  has failed to ease tensions.

Rwanda closed its border with Uganda in March and has restricted movement of goods and people across the two countries.

Uganda’s government Spokesperson, Ofwono Opondo tweeted that today’s meeting will be attended by delegations from Angola and Democratic Republic of Congo, who are the facilitators of the agreement.

Opondo said all the delegates have confirmed participation in the meeting.
