Over 20 Rwanda nationals have been arrested in Kabale over illegal entry in Uganda.
 
According to Elly Maate, the Kigezi regional police spokesperson, the suspects were arrested after police intercepted a bus they were travelling in around 1:00pm on Wednesday in Kabale municipality.
 
Maate said all the suspects did not have travel documents and identification.
 
The suspects were heading to Kampala from Kabale aboard Baby Coach bus, registration number UAM 897C.
 
Maate warned transport operators to avoid dealing with unknown people since they do not have clear intensions and can be harmful to community.
 
“Our transporters should avoid dealing with unknown people because our country is seriously aiming at security improvement," said Maate.
 
Amuza Mugume, the Assistant manager Baby Coaches Kabale said that they allowed these passengers to get on board after they had paid their fees to travel to Kampala like all passengers.
 
"I received their payment like any other passenger, little did I know that they were living illegally in Uganda," said Mugume.
