According to Kigali City Police Spokesperson, SP Emmanuel Hitayezu, Police was informed about Marie Rose Mukeshimana’s death yesterday and immediately arrested her husband.
“On Monday evening, her relatives informed Police that Mukeshimana was missing since Saturday and worried that she might be killed by her husband. We arrested the man and asked him his wife’s whereabouts. He confessed to have killed and buried her at their home and then planted vegetables on her grave,” Hitayezu explained.
Hitayezu said that today, Police went in their home and found the deceased’s body.
According to neighbors, the couple had had family conflicts which they think might be the root cause of the murder.
Mukeshimana 38 and her husband had been living in Amarembo II village, Nyabisindu cell of Remera sector in Gasabo District.
