The meeting which will take place in Gicumbi (Byumba) in Rwanda will also bring together high security delegation officials from both countries. The former commander of operation “Lightening thunder” Brigadier Patrick Kankiriho, is expected in Gicumbi with Ugandan intelligence delegation.

When Great Lakes Voice, contacted the RDF spokesperson Brig Gen. Joseph Nzamwita to shade some light on the meeting, He was hesitating and reluctant to give any details.

“By the-way, how did you come to know about that meeting?” He asked. Adding that, He has no information and doesn’t know about it.

In few minutes, Nzamwita called in to say the meeting is the type of normal proximity meeting between the two countries to review security on the two frontiers.
