Museveni Speaks Out On Uganda-Rwanda Border Closure

President Yoweri Museveni has said the closure of the border by Rwanda is a "hiccup" that will not slow the region down. "Even if the border is closed, trade will go on, only that it will be through smuggling. You can't stop trade through border administration. People resort to smuggling. Others have resorted to export a lot of things to South Sudan, DR Congo, Kenya, Tanzania, etc," he said.
