Press Statement on Fabrication of the alleged RNC Committee in Uganda

Friday, November 22, 2019

The Government of Uganda hereby strongly rejects and disabuse the renewed calculated fabrication by elements yet to be understood claiming that Uganda recently hosted a meeting for purposes of election of a committee of a shadowy rebel outfit, the Rwanda National Congress (RNC).
Uganda reiterates that it doesn't know, host, or deal in any way with such a group, a fact that has been ably communicated through the appropriate channels to the Government of the Republic of Rwanda. Uganda does not harbor any intentions or interests of destabilizing the Government of Rwanda.
Secondly, Uganda is committed to implementing the Luanda Memorandum of Understanding signed in September 23rd without any hesitation. Uganda has already proposed and is awaiting response from the government of Rwanda on the formation of a joint verification Committee to follow up on and resolve any outstanding issues.
Uganda will not be distracted by any provocative malicious propaganda in the media because it believes that the bilateral and diplomatic channels available will resolve any possible misunderstanding.
