Kigali denied claims by some media reports about the deployment of additional Rwandan troops to the war ravaged east African nation.
However, Louise Mushikiwabo , the foreign affairs minister has dismissed the allegations on Tuesday as unfounded.
The minister said that there are no Rwandan troops sent secretly in South Sudan as different Medias has published.
“I have no idea of other soldiers from Rwanda being sent to South Sudan,” she said
“There are procedures before sending troops to another country” she added, however “Rwanda and other African countries are ready to give more soldiers if asked too” Mushikiwabo said it’s a shame to have such innocent Africans still die in South Sudan; it should be every one’s role to secure their security.
So far, Rwanda maintains 1,650 troops peacekeepers who are part of the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS).
