For most of Cyril Ramaphosa’s inauguration event at Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Pretoria. President Museveni and his Rwandan counterpart Paul Kagame were engrossed in a deep chatting.
The heads of two states currently unable to trade across the border were sat next to each other as if with the intention to have them keep talking.
Indeed, during the introduction of foreign dignitaries and heads of state, the programs director Jessie Duarte introduced Paul Kagame as the president of Uganda before apologizing and correcting the mistake.
In the end, however, it was Museveni who would get the lavish of praise, as he was introduced as Africa’s charismatic leader, his introduction coming last just like his entry.
Museveni and Kagame found themselves seated together and they used the opportunity to chat time and again, only interrupted thrice; during anthems, and to shake hands with Ramaphosa towards the end of the event.
According to leaked information from the entourage escorting the two presidents, they discussed mostly the possibility of peace prevailing without armed confrontation and Rwanda opening her border.
However, it’s not known whether that will be enforced because of the currently prevailing conditions where two People were shot by Rwandan security personnel.
Accordeing to uncomformed reports kagame questioned Uganda’s intention of carrying out mountain drills between UPDF and French commandoe. It should be known that Rwanda is a hilly terrain hence “Land of Athousand hills”
