The General who was visiting Kigali for the third time this year noted that Uganda and Rwanda’s relations are even stronger now.

“Very happy to be back home after another very successful visit to beautiful Rwanda, and after more great discussions with my great uncle H.E @PaulKagame. Uganda-Rwanda relations are now very strong indeed! Godbless both brotherly countries,” Gen Kainerugaba tweeted Tuesday evening.

Gen Kainerugaba, who arrived in Kigali on Saturday, met the Rwandan leader on each of the days he has been in the country nicknamed the land of a thousand hills due to its hilly and mountainous physical natural beauty covering the land.

After his arrival in Kigali, Gen Kainerugaba and his delegation met President Kagame at his private office at the Kigali Convention Center.

On his last day, Gen Kainerugaba held a private meeting with the President before he bade farewell to his guests at Urugwiro Village which houses his office.

The General was then seen off by Rwandan military Generals including Maj Gen Willy Rwagasana, the Commander of Rwanda’s Republican Guard; and Brig Gen Ronald Rwivanga, the Spokesman of the Rwandan Defence Forces.
