Zuma Defends Fugitive Rwandan Officers Kayumba Nyamwasa and Karegeya

Jacob Zuma

South African President Jacob Zuma has defended his country over hosting two army officers from Rwanda, Lt general Kayumba Nyamwasa and colonel Karegeya, who are against Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame and who have taken refuge in South Africa

President Zuma who was addressing a press conference on Friday just before ending his three day state visit to Uganda said, “You know there are international laws that govern those who seek refugee in other countries. One of the two officers has already been granted a refugee status. Another one has applied but not yet been granted the status.

South Africa, according to Jacob Zuma, has not yet received an official complaint from the government of Rwanda about the two wanted persons. He however said that if Rwanda complains, the South African government will discuss the issue.

Thumbs up for South Africa. When one runs away from their own country, more so people of Kayumba stature, it is a serious issue and could be an indication of some underlying severe matters that will explode one day. Only time will tell. Just watch the space before we jump into the badn wagon to point blame to those who have run away or the government where they have run from.
Let us pray for his quick recovery and hope the culprits will be arrested or exposed at one stage in the future.
I am sure afande Kayumbe did not want to kill himself.
