The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has revealed that the information circulating on Social media of a purported visit by General Salim Saleh to President Paul Kagame in Kigali, Rwanda is not true.
“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs would like to categorically state that the information circulating on social media about the above-mentioned visit is not true,” the ministry said in a statement dated February 17, 2022.
The ministry further warned members of the public to take caution before circulating any information that could derail efforts being taken to mend the relationship between Uganda and Rwanda.
“Uganda and Rwanda are doing everything possible to normalise their bilateral relations but are also mindful of some members of the public whose actions could derail the warm and cordial relations being cultivated between the two countries.”
Adding, “For the record, there is no planned visit go Kigali by General Salim Saleh.”
The statement follows a tweet by Next Media Services journalist Canary Mugume indicating that General Saleh was set to pay Kagame a visit in what he termed as another move towards mending Uganda-Rwanda relations.
The journalist later retracted his tweet.
