Today has been the long-awaited date for the opening of the Rwanda-Uganda border. At around 8:00 am, a Rwandan citizen was able to cross from Uganda to Rwanda via the Gatuna border. A few hours later, Ugandan citizens have been denied entry into Rwanda regardless of the border opening.
The reason for the denial of entry is still unclear. But the officials from the two countries are still in a closed meeting to see the way forward.
