A Facebook post claiming to quote Rwandan President Paul Kagame expressing support for his Ugandan counterpart has been shared multiple times on social media. The post emerged ahead of Uganda’s presidential election on January 14, 2021, which returned incumbent President Yoweri Museveni to power for a sixth term. However, AFP Fact Check has found no public trace of Kagame making this statement.
