In Uganda, 32 Rwandans who were arrested in the west of the country, in an operation against people accused of illegally entering the country, have been deported.

This comes after 24 Ugandans working in Rwanda were also expelled over the weekend, according to local leaders in Kisoro district.

The expulsions come amid tensions between the two east African countries that have festered since Rwanda closed the main common border post in February.

The Rwandans, arrested on Monday, were deported on Tuesday through Kyanika border post shortly after they appeared before a magistrate’s court and pleaded guilty to illegal entry into Uganda.

Also deported alongside them were three Congolese nationals.
