Museveni Misses Oulanyah’s Burial, Meets Rwandan President Kagame In Kenya

By Ivan Mwine

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni missed fallen Speaker Jacob Oulanyah’s burial, which was held Friday April 08th, 2022 in Omoro District.

We have established that the President couldn’t attend Oulanyah’s burial because he had to fly to Nairobi, Kenya on Friday morning for official duty.

Museveni traveled to Nairobi for  the Signing Ceremony of the Treaty of Accession to the East African Community by the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Shortly landing in Nairobi, Museveni, who was to witness the signing together with presidents of  other countries in the East African Community (EAC), tweeted thus;

“I have arrived in Nairobi, Kenya for the Signing Ceremony of the Treaty of Accession to the East African Community by the Democratic Republic of Congo.”

It should be noted that DR Congo was this week admitted  to the EAC by the other member countries, and the signing  the treaty of Accession activates the country’s membership in the community.

Meanwhile, we have also learnt that prior to the signing ceremony, Museveni held a private meeting with his counterpart from  Rwanda, president Paul Kagame.

It should be noted that Museveni and Kagame had not met for almost two years ever since Kagame closed the Rwandan border to Uganda in March 2019, which he later opened early this year, following meetings with the Commander of Land Forces (CLF) Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba, who is also First Son and Presidential Advisor on Special Operations.

“I met with H.E Paul Kagame, the President of the Republic of Rwanda shortly before we both witnessed the signing of the Treaty of Accession by the Democratic Republic of Congo to EAC at State House, Nairobi,” Museveni tweeted after their meeting.

It  is not yet clear what Museveni and Kagame discussed in private because most of it remains confidential but sources in Nairobi intimate that they were matters strengthening the relationship between Uganda and Rwanda.
