On Sunday, November 10, Police in Uganda said that two Ugandans had been killed by Rwandan security forces.

Moreover, the incident occurred around 8 pm, on Saturday at Tabagwe village in Nyagatare district in Rwanda.

However, the two Ugandans allegedly smuggled tobacco to Rwanda.

Recall that the political tension between the two countries climaxed in February when Rwanda closed its border and blocked all goods from Uganda.

Apparently, the two Ugandans smuggled the tobacco because of the closed border.

Police Spokesperson of Uganda’s Kigezi region Elly Mate confirmed the incident stating that they are still investigating the case.

Besides, the Ugandans were five in number; the security forces killed two while three escaped.

Therefore, the authorities have identified the deceased as Byarushaga Job and Tuhirirwe Bosco.

The surviving Ugandan reported the case to the Ugandan police force.

In recent months, there have been numerous such cases of shooting by Rwandan security deployed, along with the border points with Uganda.
