Karumugabo was ordained in priesthood on 22nd July 2017 at Kabgayi, when the Rwanda Catholic Church was celebrating 100-year-jubilee of sacerdotal service in Rwanda.
A priest who spoke to IGIHE said that Karumugabo has been suffering from blood cancer. He said that Karumugabo received priesthood sacrament in a wheelchair due to his deteriorating life condition.
One of his kidneys had been removed. Karumugabo had been deployed to Gikonko where he could easily get a doctor to care of him.
Accoding to information from Butare Diocese, Karumugabo will be laid to rest on Thursday 21st 2017.
