President Museveni's Son Gen. Muhoozi Becomes The Much Awaited Messiah Between Uganda And Rwanda

Uganda and Rwanda were initially staunch allies who enjoyed good interstate trade. Behind the good relation were some unresolved domestic grievances that seemed to breed animosity. Rwanda on their side believed that Uganda was training and arming their opposition group famously known as 'Platform Five' or P5, a group that seeks to overthrow the ruling Rwanda Patriotic Front (RPF). 

Uganda played down the existence of animosity but reacted firmly when there was an incursion by Rwandan forces onto Ugandan territory, killing two civilians in the border town of Rukiga. Tension was high to the extent of the two neighbours closing down their borders.

General Muhoozi, evident on his social media accounts has been making strides in trying to bring back the rosy relationship with their neighbours. A few days ago, Muhoozi posted President Kagame's photo with caption, 'This is my uncle, Afande Paul Kagame. Those who fight him are fighting my family. They should all be careful'. The post seemed to serve the purpose of softening Kagame's heart.

General Muhoozi was pictured yesterday with President Kagame in Rwanda. He later thanked Kagame for warm reception given to him and his delegation in Kigali. He revealed they held a very cordial and in-depth discussions about how to improve their bilateral relations. Muhoozi managed to convince the Rwandan president to release SFC soldier, Private Ronald Arinda, who was arrested when he strayed into Rwandan territory on personal business without permission.

It seems Rwanda's President has a soft spot for Muhoozi. Could Muhoozi be the Messiah to reunite the two countries?
