Police in South Africa have arrested one suspect over the death of Rwandan doctor Raymond Dusabe, the only gynecological oncologist the country had until Monday morning.

Dr Dusabe was found seemingly stabbed to death on Monday morning in the house he was lodging in Cape Town, South Africa.

Dusabe was spending festive holidays in the country in which he had recently completed his master’s studies.

Speaking to IGIHE yesterday, the Ambassador of Rwanda in South Africa, Vincent Karega said that one suspect was arrested and expected to appear before justice on Wednesday.

Though one was arrested, Karega said that Police investigations were still underway.

Police arrested the suspect by tracking Dusabe’s car which was missing after his death.

Dr Dusabe’s death has come as a big shock and loss to the country’s health sector, according to Malick Kayumba, Spokesperson of the Ministry of Health.

“He (Dusabe) was the sole specialist in gynecologic oncology we had in the country. This is a big loss of important personnel not only to the hospital he was working for but also to the entire country’s health sector,” he told IGIHE on Tuesday.

Dusabe, 40, had been working for King Faisal Hospital since April last year.

“King Faisal Hospital is saddened to announce the death of Dr. Raymond Dusabe. The administration wishes to express its most sincere sympathies to his family during this difficult time. His work here will not soon be forgotten. He will be greatly missed. May He Rest In Peace,” the hospital tweeted on Tuesday.
