Rwanda Asks South Africa To Arrest Nyamwasa
The Rwandan government has asked South Africa to arrest renegade Lt Gen Kayumba Nyamwasa, a diplomat has said.
Mr Frank Mugambage, the Rwandan envoy to Uganda, told Daily Monitor on Friday in Kampala that Kigali has negotiated with South African authorities to arrest and extradite Gen. Nyamwasa.
“Although we do not have an extradition treaty with South Africa, they have agreed to cooperate with us to arrest him,” Mr Mugambage said, “In fact we have also alerted Interpol to arrest him whenever he is sighted and we hope very soon we shall catch up with him.”
Daily Monitor could not establish whether the South African embassy had officially received Rwanda’s diplomatic request as known mobile phone lines of most officials were switched off.
Gen. Nyamwasa is wanted in Kigali to answer various criminal charges among them allegations that he was involved in a plot to topple President Paul Kagame.
