Rwanda Investigation Bureau (RIB) has arrested two people involved in multi-level marketing scams (pyramid scheme) where they allegedly swindled funds from members of the public through a phony company dubbed ‘Ujamaa Turemerane’.

The duo arrested on 4th July 2021 in Ndera, Gasabo district of Kigali City includes Nadine Rugwiro who founded the company and Laetitia Nyirabashongore suspected of connivance to swindle money from residents of Rusizi district, Western Province.

“It is true that they were arrested on 4th July 2021 in Gasabo district after spending days in hideouts. They escaped in May from Rusizi district where they committed the crime,” said RIB’s Spokesperson, Thierry B. Murangira.

IGIHE has learnt that they are suspected to have fleeced over Rwf25 million from residents promising them huge profits.

Dr. Murangira has revealed that the suspects are detained at Remera RIB Post as they await their dossier to be transferred to the Prosecution.

RIB has reminded Rwandans that anyone involved in such fraudulent acts won’t be tolerated.
