M7 speaks out on Rwanda border closure
President Museveni has today delivered an opportunity lecture to 17 high ranking military officials from 11 countries including USA, UK, Germany, Netherlands, Bolivia at Masindi State Lodge, Masindi.
The team led by Rear Admiral Ross Albon from UK Royal College of Defence Studies has been in the country for a one-week study tour of Uganda about ‘Uganda’s Geo Politics and Economic Development’.
On Rwanda, the President said the closure of the border by neighbouring Rwanda is a ‘hiccup’ that will not slow the region down. “Even if the border is closed, trade will go on, only that it will be through smuggling. You can’t stop trade through border administration. People resort to smuggling. Others have resorted to export a lot of things to South Sudan, DR Congo, Kenya Tanzania etc,” he said.
