The Zimbabwe Minister of Defence, Oppah C. Z. Muchinguri Kashiri is in Rwanda for a two-day official visit from 02 to 03 August 2021.
She paid a courtesy call to the Minister of Defence of Rwanda, Maj Gen Albert Murasira, at RDF Headquarters, Kimihurura and held discussions on how to strengthen the bilateral defence cooperation between Rwanda and Zimbabwe.
Speaking during an interview after meeting with Maj Gen Murasira, minister Muchinguri Kashiri said:
I am in Kigali on the invitation of the Minister of Defence to once again explore ways that we can strengthen the relationship between our two countries. What we have come to do today is to among other things share information regarding the challenges that our two countries face; including threats to do with terrorism within our countries, within our region and the continent of Africa.
Muchinguri emphasised that Rwanda and Zimbabwe have a long-standing relationship that goes as far as 1997 during which a Memorandum of Understanding was signed and remains in existence.
