Muhoozi yesterday spoke about the improved relations between Uganda and Rwanda.
“We were experiencing bad relations with one of our closest and brotherly neighbours – Rwanda. You remember the border was closed for three years – no trade, no money. People couldn’t visit families and friends across the border. We thank god who has solved that problem,” said Muhoozi during the 4th birthday celebrations at Lugogo Cricket oval.
