Museveni and Kagame meet in Luanda to agree on key security issues

Rwanda accuses Uganda of supporting rebels and dissidents opposed to Kagame’s government, a charge Uganda denies. President Yoweri Museveni and his Rwandan counterpart Paul Kagame are in Angola.

According to sources, the presidents will be part of a one-day Quadripartite Summit in the Angolan capital, Luanda, on an invitation by Angolan President João Lourenço.

Congolese President Felix Tshisekedi is also expected to attend the function. Top on the agenda is the discussion on security in the great lakes region.

The meeting comes with a background of a frosty relationship between Kigali and the Kampala governments, with the latter being accused of harboring spies aimed at disrupting Rwanda peace.

In May this year, two Rwandan nationals suspected to be from RDF and one Ugandan was arrested in Kabale district after suspecting that the three were spying on Uganda.

Also invited, is the DRC president Felix Tshilombo Tshishekedi whose country by default is part of the Great Lakes Region Community.

DRC is viewed as a pivot in the region’s security issues, as it reportedly harbors ADF rebels that threaten the peace and security of both Rwanda and Uganda.

In a recent meeting between Tshisekedi and President Museveni, the Congo President vowed to crush all militants based in his country, while his Uganda counterpart pledged to work towards the peace and prosperity of both states.

Meanwhile, Angola, Rwanda and DRC presidents will be meeting for a second time, with Museveni joining the party finally.

The trio (Rwanda, Angola, DRC) met in Kinshasha last month where they agreed to form a coalition.
