Press Release(PDF)

 

Starving, pregnant and too weak to run Elisabeth Mukarugwiza fell and died as she tried to run away from soldiers who wanted to prevent her from crossing into Uganda to buy some food commodities. As she fell and died on the Ugandan side of the border one soldier is alleged to have run and picked the ID from the dead woman before the arrival of Ugandan security officer. It will not surprise if they deny her Rwandan citizenship.  The Ugandan Red ‘cross arrived too late to save her.

Women who were with the deceased were strong enough to outrun the soldiers. They stated that they were starving since the border was closed. They said that there has been very poor potato harvest in Rwanda and people depended on buying food commodities from Ugandan including flour, sweet potatoes, avocadoes, banana etc. and even went to medical services in Uganda. Responding to a journalist one of the ladies said that she does not fear to say that she does not believe the story that “President Museveni tortures Rwandans”, but that Kagame does it by denying food to his people.

The political trial of 9 FDU-Inkingi political prisoners resumed today 20th of March 2019, still grieving over the murder in cold blood of their former colleague, Anselme Mutuyimana whose  body was found in Gishwati forest less than 24 hours after his arrest by people in police uniform,  and in the absence of  their co accused Boniface Twagirimana, 1st Vice President of FDU-Inkingi,  who is feared dead after a mysterious disappearance from Mpanga maximum security prison. The murders seem to be annual ritual killings.  Illuminee Iragena was kidnapped in March 2016, Jean Damascene Habarugira in May 2018 and Anselme in 2019. This completes the circle that key leaders of the FDU-Inkingi are either in prison, forcedly disappeared or are dead.

On the 9th of March 2019, 30-year-old Anselme Mutuyimana, personal assistant of a leading politician Mrs Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza, president of the United Democratic Forces party, was found murdered by strangulation, a recipe of the murder in a hotel in South Africa of Colonel Patrick Karegeya critic of donor darling President Kagame, on New Year eve 2014. Unlike Patrick Karegeya he was taken in broad daylight at around 1:30 GMT in view of people at Mahoko Taxi Park by uniformed men who reassured him that he was taken for questioning. His body was found dumped in Gishwati forest. According to eye witnesses, he arrived at Mahoko car taxi around 1:00 GMT on board taxi from the capital Kigali. He rented a motorcycle taxi then a red pickup, without car plate numbers, came to block his way. Two plain clothed men came out of this vehicle and tried to bundle him into the pickup. He resisted and managed to escape their hold, but uniformed officers came out of the same vehicle and ordered him to obey orders to enter the pickup. He did not resist because he knew he was innocent and thought it could a matter a mistaken identity.
