Gasabo District Court on Thursday reopened the case against Caleb Rwamuganza, the former Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning, Minecofin, and five others.

They are charged with three counts of felony, misappropriation of public funds, unlawful public procurement and conspiracy to commit fraud.

The charges against the defendants allege that they procured and sold a commercial building to the government of Rwanda at Rwf 9,850,000,000 yet the value of the said commercial building had been established at Rwf 7,600,000,000.

The house was also reportedly purchased without the knowledge of the Rwanda Public Procurement Authority, even before negotiations between the suppliers and the bidders were carried out.
