    Default How Rwanda is Becoming the Singapore of Africa

    Interesting economic and social backgrounder on Rwanda's potential to become a bastion of stability in the region.

    Tensions are mounting dangerously between Rwanda and Uganda. The two African countries historically have been closely linked, with each playing a key role in the other’s political development. But all that is now in peril.

    The current Ugandan government, led by president Yoweri Museveni and his National Resistance Movement (NRM), gained power during the Ugandan Bush War (1980-1986) thanks in part to the military assistance of Rwandan refugees who fled their home country when the Tutsi ethnic group was persecuted. Among those refugees was current Rwandan president Paul Kagame, who joined Museveni’s ultimately successful struggle against the government of Milton Obote (1980-1985) and Tito Okello (1985-1986).

    Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni wrote to his Rwandan counterpart, criticizing Kigali for its agents attempting to operate in his homeland without the consent of Kampala authorities.

    It is “wrong” for “Rwanda agents to try to operate behind the government of Uganda,” Museveni said a letter to Paul Kagame, a copy of which was published in state-owned New Vision newspaper. It is the first time communication between the leaders is made public, since Rwanda unilaterally decided to close its busiest border with Uganda in February, disrupting trade.
