President Paul Kagame has sent a message of comfort to the residents of Rusizi district, Western Province affected by recent attack by unidentified bandits that killed one and injured eight, saying this foreign-hatched incursion won’t repeat without solution.
Kagame noted this yesterday in a press conference after presenting his credentials to National Electoral Commission as a bidding process to represent RPF Inkotanyi in upcoming presidential elections.
President Kagame explained that wherever in Rusizi or elsewhere where security was not effectively handled is an issue that should be handled with urgency saying the incident involved attackers from outside Rwanda.
“I don’t think it will happen twice, three times; there is no way of solving it as long as the mastermind doesn’t understand that it was not worth. The current information we have indicates that the attackers came from outside. There are Rwandans who collaborated with those who came from outside to destabilize, by throwing grenades, gunned people, some were injured others dead .Some connivers were arrested. We are still following up to establish the truth,” he said.
In March 2017, two people were shot dead in the region near Rwanda-Burundi border where after masterminds fled to Burundi.
The spokesperson of Rwanda Defense Force (RDF), Lt Col René Ngendahimana told IGIHE on Wednesday that investigations have started following previous night’s grenade attack in Bugarama sector, Rusizi district where eight people were injured and one identified as Kandenzi Vestine, 52, shot dead. .
