Tension Builds Up Between Uganda, Rwanda Over Border Closure

Uganda has accused Rwanda of blocking cargo trucks and other vehicles, and stopping its nationals from crossing into Rwanda at the Katuna border amid a resurgence of hostility between the two African neighbours. The Uganda State minister for Regional Cooperation says Uganda is considering petitioning the East African Community Secretariat to challenge what it perceives as Rwanda's economic sabotage.
