It was in the morning of the 25th January 2018, that the news of the death of the seasoned politician, diplomat and academician were announced.
He passed away at 70 at a hospital in India, due to some complications after a surgery.
Patriotic to the core, he’s among the people who had the idea of founding RANU (which came to be RPF Inkotanyi) in 1979.
In April 1992, he took part in the discussions of the Arusha Accords, the peace agreement between Habyarimana’s government and the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF).
The group that represented RPF Inkotanyi in the Arusha Accords in Tanzania was Patrick Mazimhaka; Lt. Gen Charles Muhire, an Ex-AirForce General; Brig. Gen Andrew Rwigamba who came to lead the National Police of Rwanda; Pasteur Bizimungu who came to be the President of Rwanda [1994-2000] and the researcher Tom Ndahiro.
