Rwanda has declared that its principle line with Uganda, shut in 2019, will return on Monday.

Cross-line development of individuals and merchandise at the Gatuna-Katuna line was ended after strains between the two East African countries.

Produce has simply been permitted to go through two more modest boundary posts at Cyanika and Kagitumba.

The resuming was reported after Lt-Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba, the child of Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, went to meet Rwandan President Paul Kagame over the course of the end of the week.

Rwanda had blamed Uganda for capturing and ousting its residents and supporting agitators from the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR).

The Ugandan government denied the claims – and blamed Rwanda for invading its security organizations.

On Tuesday, Uganda fired the head of military knowledge Maj Gen Abel Kandiho, who Rwanda had blamed for working with its protesters.

The resuming of the principle line and the terminating of the authority mark a huge defrosting in relations.
