Uganda‘s Intelligence operatives on Sunday 17th arrested one Dr Sam Ruvuma over Rwandan refugees who were arrested at the Uganda Tanzania border last week.

According to the local media in Uganda Dr Ruvuma who teaches at Mbarara University of Science and Technology (MUST) and studied from Rwanda’s Butare University (Medicine Faculty) was asked by the church warden that some people outside wanted to have a chart with him.

Media reports further revealed that when he went out the men who were waiting for him swiftly forced him into a vehicle which drove off to an unknown destination.

The move left the crowd in shock as the doctor left his personal belongings in the church.

According to highly placed sources, Dr Ruvuma is likely to be charged with “human trafficking” following the arrest over 40 Rwandan refugees as they travelled from Uganda to Burundi via Tanzania.

It’s alleged some members of the church participated in the trip which was blocked by Police.

The Rwandan refugees, who said they were heading for a Christian Crusade in Burundi, had crossed into Tanzania before being pursued by Ugandan police and returned to Isingiro, Uganda.

Officials say the arrest has shocked many in security as Dr Ruvuma is a brother of Lt Col Gideon Katinda, the Judge Advocate of the Army Court Martial which is currently prosecuting police officers and Rwandan nationals accused of kidnap and harassment of Rwandan refugees in Uganda.

However other sources said the refugees where headed to RNC training camps via Burundi
