“It wasn’t me!” Uganda masters art of shifting blame
It is impossible to understand why Ugandan authorities have persistently blamed Rwanda for their internal problems. For decades Uganda has tried to bully Rwanda and try to make it subservient. However, it beats the mind why it insists on this course of action that has no direct benefits for the country.
Rwanda’s refusal to accept Uganda’s subservience exposed it to all kinds of destabilization efforts that most recently include providing logistical support to Rwanda National Congress terrorist organization that is headed by the renegade General Kayumba Nyamwasa, which has openly declared war against Rwanda.
In addition to supporting groups that seek to destabilize Rwanda, the pattern over the years has been for Uganda’s intelligence organs to peddle lies that paint the leadership of Rwanda in negative light using websites, blogs, and bogus social media accounts that have been especially created for this purpose.
In those publications Rwanda is portrayed as a bad neighbor when in fact it is Uganda that keeps this provocation and hostile behavior towards it’s neighbor.
On it’s part Rwanda has refused to be dragged into the internal affairs of Uganda even if it’s being used as a scapegoat, including when innocent Rwandan nationals have been arrested and tortured on flimsy accusations of being spies.
Rwanda refuses to be dragged into Uganda’s internal affairs because it doesn’t see any benefits from such a move and wishes that soon Uganda’s leadership will realize that positive relations serve the best interests of the two countries whose citizens share deep historical ties.
Analysts who have tried to understand the behavior of Uganda’s leadership towards Rwanda say that it is motivated by jealousy and that they would be fine if Rwanda was making progress through subservience to Uganda.
