Lt. Gen. Henry Tumukunde, a former Minister for Security, has urged Rwandan president Paul Kagame to support forces that want to overthrow President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.
Gen. Tumukunde, who this week announced his intention to contest against President Yoweri Museveni in the 2021 election, made the remarks on Thursday morning during an interview with NBS TV’s Morning Breeze programme host Simon Kagwa Njala.
When Kagwa asked Gen. Tumukunde for his opinion about the Uganda- Rwanda impasse, he replied that; “An impasse! I hope we are following the same developments on this issue. However, if I was Rwanda, I would support anyone who wants to cause a change in Uganda.”
Tumukunde claimed that this would in one way or another solve the impasse between Rwanda and Uganda, since Kagame also accuses the regime in Kampala of allegedly supporting insurgents and dissidents that want to overthrow his government.
Tumukunde also said he is willing to work with anyone who wants to cause a change in Uganda, including the 24 presidential aspirants and different opposition parties.
“I will work with anyone who is interested in change. What I want to stress is that presidents can be removed and we have living examples all over,” he added.
However, Tumukunde’s utterances come a few days after a meeting between Museveni and Kagame at Katuna, which was aimed at solving the impasse between the two countries.
The two presidents met for the third time during the fourth Quadripartite Heads of State Summit at the Katuna/Gatuna border point in a bid to ease tensions between the two neighboring countries.
However, despite signing an extradition treaty, it was agreed that the opening of the border will have to wait a little longer as Uganda verifies the allegations by Rwanda in regards to harboring dissidents destabilizing the Kigali establishment.
