Lt Col Rugigana Ngabo, brother to General Kayumba Nyamwasa, arrested in Kigali

Kigali – Military sources in Kigali have confirmed that the Commanding Officer (CO) of the Engineering Regiment, Lt. Col Rugigana Ngabo, has been arrested on Friday. Rugigana is a brother to fugitive General Faustin Kayumba Nyamwasa who is refugee in South Africa and who is still recovering from an assassination attempt.

The arrest was confirmed yesterday by the Defence and Military Spokesperson, Lt Col, Jill Rutaremara who announced: “The RDF on Friday arrested Lt Col Rugigana Ngabo because of his engagement in activities related to insecurity and is currently being held by the military”.

But Rutaremara was quick to add that Rugigana’s arrest had nothing to do with his relationship to Nyamwasa, but for “individual criminal liability”.
