Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame revealed Speaking to the Senate, that his country’s acceptance of refugees has led to high tensions between Central Africa’s neighbors.
Kagame emphasized that Rwanda could no longer provide refuge to people fleeing the conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
The Rwandan president refused to bear his country’s burden of refugees and subjected it to humiliation and abuse on a daily basis for that. Kagame said he will make sure everyone understands that this is not a problem with Rwanda.
The president’s comments came amid tensions between Kigali and Kinshasa, and accusations about Rwanda’s support for M23 Congolese fighters, a charge it has consistently denied.
