Rwanda-Uganda border has been closed for close to two years now. Besides the border closures due to Covid-19, there was already a heated unhealthy relationship between Rwanda and Uganda induced by an alleged unfair treatment of the Rwandese in Uganda.

Rwanda started with a partial closure of the borders where all cargo tracks were stopped from entering Rwanda but tourists were allowed to cross to Rwanda. With a spike in the covid-19 pandemic, Rwanda closed all its borders with Uganda.

Recently, a Ugandan who allegedly was smuggling waragi to Rwanda was shot dead by Rwanda authorities. The body of the deceased has been handed over to Ugandan authorities at the Katuna border.
