A Rwandan newspaper known as KT Press has lashed out at New Vision accusing the publication for faking a story on President Yoweri Museveni bilateral meeting his counterpart President Paul Kagame in Dubai.
New Vision newspaper reported in its Friday print edition that Kagame and Museveni had met on the sidelines of the Global Africa Business Forum in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates. Kagame spoke at the event on Wednesday.
The New Vision quotes Okello Oryem, the Ugandan State minister for regional affairs, who confirms the Kagame-Museveni “bilateral meeting”.
According to KT Press, the meeting wasn’t reported on Rwanda news, and no tweets, no photos on Flickr which is unusual.
Yet all engagements that President Kagame takes part are reported before and after they take place on @UrugwiroVillage, the official Twitter account of the President’s office. Within about an hour, photos are always also availed on the official Flickr page.
“For all the engagements President Kagame held in Dubai, such as the appearance on the Forum’s Presidential panel and tour of the event’s exhibition, they were reported,” the Rwandan paper wrote in part.
‘The said Kagame, Museveni meeting didn’t happened for sure. And KT Press did confirm with officials travelling with the President,” KT Press added.
