The body was first seen by children collecting firewood in the forest near the University of Rwanda, Huye campus who alerted residents.
Rwanda Investigation Bureau (RIB) has started investigation to establish cause of the death. One of residents said the body had started rotting.
They suspected that the deceased person might be a potter called Cyuma who worked in Huye town.
The mayor of Huye district, Sebutege Ange has told IGIHE that investigation is underway.
“The dead person has not yet been identified but RIB has started investigation to establish the truth,” he said.
Huye residents appeal on officials to reinforce security at the road below the University of Rwanda, Huye campus where people have been reported killed or looted in the evening hours.
In December last year, another unidentified young man aged 27, was stabbed to death in the same area.
Sebutege explained that residents’ complaints are reasonable whereby several measures including the installation of lights on the aforementioned road are put in place to strengthen security.
