Rwandan General Kazura allegedly implicated in assassination attempt on fugitive Nyamwasa in South Africa

by David O’Brian

The saga of the assassination attempt on the exiled Rwandan General Faustin Kayumba Nyamwasa may have taken another twist, according to sources in South Africa and Rwanda. These sources told AfroAmerica Network that the South African police has already the group of six suspects, mostly ex Rwandan Patriotic Army officers, talking. The suspects are allegedly implicating General Jean Bosco Kazura as the ring leader of the conspiracy to assassinate the Rwandan General Kayumba Nyamwasa.

According to the same sources, it appears that General Jean Bosco Kazura was sent on a mission by the Rwandan Government to travel to South Africa and organize the assassination while the South African police was busy with the opening of the FIFA Soccer World Cup.

After the death squad was put in place, General Jean Bosco Kazura quickly returned to Rwanda, leaving the squad under the command of Francis Gakwerere. To divert the attention, the Rwandan Department of Military Intelligence arrested General Jean Bosco Kazura upon his return. The motive of the arrest was to be able to deny the involvement of the Rwandan government in case the assassination attempt was discovered by the South African security services.

Contrary to the usually secrecy within the RPF, the arrest of General Kazura, under the pretext of unauthorized trip outside the county by a high ranking military officer, was publicized allegedly to create a smokescreen.

If these allegations turn out to be true, the South African and Rwandan Government may be facing a serious diplomatic row.

I am just having a bad time accepting this news about General Kazura. I know about Gakwerere, he works for General James KABAREBE, and himself has been sending people to track down Kayumba Nyamwasa, but to the point of using General Kazura! I can’t wait until the truth comes out. I hope the SA police won’t keep it from the public.

If this saga was to reveal such a truth with confirmation report from the SA police, I am afraid the relationship between SA and Rda will be affected seriously, but also this would have serious implications in the behaviour of Rwandan Army.

Kagame is the most superior western governments proxy in Africa. If Africa was one country under one ruler, the western corporations would like Kagame to be the ruler. Otherwise, they would like to find Kagame’s like ruler in every African state where they have interest! Kagame has powerful Public Relation firms including religious leaders in the west to clean his genocidal image! There is no such thing as Rwandan intelligence, there are western intelligence helping Rwanda to hunt down Kagame’s opponents world wide! Looting Congolese minerals is at the bottom of Kagame’s power base!
