The Ugandan Court Martial has on Tuesday withdrawn espionage charges against seven Rwandan nationals. And they will all be handed back to their home country.
According to a tweet by Next Media Journalist Raymond Mujuni, the decision is a major breakthrough to mend the declining relationship between Rwanda and Uganda.
The seven are Renne Rututagungira, Bahati Mugenga, Emmanuel Rwamuco, Augustine Rutisiri, Etiene Nsanzabahizi , Charles Byaruhanga and Claude Iyakaleme. They have been behind bars since 2017.
In his New Year message, President Museveni promised to end the conflict between Uganda and her neighbour.
