At least 90 Ugandans stranded in Rwanda fail to return home
At least 90 Ugandans who had registered at the High commission of Uganda in Kigali have failed to return home.
According to Ann Katusiime the Deputy Head of missions at the Ugandan high commission in Rwanda, over 350 people had registered for repatriation however some could not show up even on the final day on Wednesday, September 23,2020.
“The first batch had 100 Ugandans repatriated, 94 more people followed and Wednesday saw 66 people repatriated. We had booked for more people to travel but when the time came, only these turned up. When contacted, some told us that they were not ready to return home while others still found comfort in staying in Rwanda,” she said.
Katusiime said that those who were repatriated were the stranded ones but those who found it comfortable to stay in Kigali opted to remain and they might consider traveling when borders reopen as soon as possible.
