Rwandans as a group are falling victim to political violence in Kampala. The Ugandan capital has been in the news after it erupted with mobs of Baganda youths battling the Police and other security organs ostensibly because the government forbade the Baganda king from travelling to Kayunga one of the country's districts - which too saw scenes of violence. Banyarwanda, as usual, were one of the principle targets of mob wraths in Uganda.
"It is very dangerous now to be a Munyarwanda in Kampala," said Samuel Kageruka, a Ugandan citizen of Rwandan origin. "Just to be seen with a long nose can mean members of a mob pulling you out of a vehicle and beating you to death," said Kageruka who told us he sells Japanese electronics on Ben Kiwanuka, one of the city's streets.
