Tense atmosphere in Kigali and drastic new security directives
Following the military spokesman’s statement accusing exiled army generals to be behind recent grenades, with the help of Uganda and Tanzania, the atmosphere in Kigali is tense.
The city of Kigali Authority has issued security measures regarding hotels, banks, bars and transport businesses with immediate effect:
● Every one entering a hotel must be searched and hotels must be equiped with detectors within one week.
● Bars must be equiped with power generators to keep lights on in event of general blackouts in the area.
● Owners of cars with tinted windows are asked to change car window glasses as soon as possible.
Kagame has got his new term after last week’s sham elections, but the recent events and these drastic new measures show that he is very nervous and that worries in Rwanda are not over yet.
