Rwanda Urges Uganda to Release Its Citizens Held There Illegally

Nyagatare District Mayor Claudian Mushabe has asked Ugandans to stop illegally detaining Rwandans, as they handed over the body of a Rwandan who was reportedly killed as part of normal security and law enforcement exercise. He said that it was sad Rwandan officials were receiving a dead body of a Rwandan when those who are still alive are still languishing in jail.
