Government has downplayed fears that Uganda's relationship with Rwanda has deteriorated.
This comes on the backdrop of simmering tension between the neighbouring countries with Rwanda accusing Uganda of aiding dissidents associated with Rwanda National Congress to destabilize Kigali.

In a recent interview, Rwandan President Paul Kagame is quoted saying that tension was mounting between the two countries because Uganda had opted to listen to rumors by Rwandans in South Africa other than what Kigali is saying.

But government spokesperson Ofwono Opondo said Uganda has institutional mechanisms to gather intelligence as opposed to depending on rumors.

Ofwono was addressing journalists in Kampala on Tuesday.
