    He also hailed Kagame for reopening the Gatuna border with Uganda, saying it will ease the movement of goods and people between the two neighbouring countries.

    Kenyatta assured Kagame of  Kenya’s commitment towards ensuring the two countries mutually benefit from the collaborations in championing the ideals of the East African Community.

    The same sentiments were echoed by Kagame setting a new path towards strengthening the bilateral partnership between Nairobi and Kigali.

    The talks further highlighted the importance of ending the ongoing conflict in some East African countries including Ethiopia and Sudan.

    “The two leaders also affirmed their commitment to working together to find lasting solutions to conflicts facing Ethiopia, Sudan, South Sudan and Somalia, saying Kenya and Rwanda will continue to play a leading role in promoting dialogue and peace amongst the warring parties,” State House reported.

    Upon his arrival in Rwanda, Kagame noted that the meeting with Kenyatta was productive. 

    “I had a brief but very productive working visit with President Uhuru Kenyatta in Nairobi today morning. Now back home! I like it this way- one hour to Nairobi one hour back to Kigali. 1hr+ discussion 1hr from airport to State House and back to the airport a lot was covered,” Tweeted Kagame.
