Uganda Accuses Rwanda of Economic Sabotage

Uganda's Foreign Affairs Minister, Sam Kutesa, has said Rwanda is engaging in a trade war by employing non-tax barriers to block Ugandan exports and preventing Rwandans from exporting to Uganda. Tensions between the two countries began when Kigali closed its main border forcing traders to travel to Rwanda via the DR Congo.
