Authorities in Ntungamo to deport illegal Rwandan Nationals in the district
Authorities in Ntungamo have announced that all Rwandans working as casual labourers in the district without the necessary documentation will be deported. According to the Resident District Commissioner, George Bakunda, the district security committee made the resolution after establishing that many have become a source of insecurity in the district.
Several Rwandan women work in major trading centers in the district as waitresses in bars and hotels. Bakunda says there is an increase in cattle theft and murders, which he says are caused by unknown people as well as laborers who cross the Rwandan border illegally.
At least 15 people have since 2015 been killed by casual laborers in sub counties of Ngoma, Rubaare, Kayonza, Rweikiniro and Ruhaama with the killers fleeing back to Rwanda. Bakunda reveals that village chairpersons will be required to record all residents and report any suspicion and new people in their areas.
