Ugandan Court Martial Withdraws Charges Against Seven Rwandan Nationals

The Ugandan Court Martial has on Tuesday withdrawn espionage charges against seven Rwandan nationals.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.
