Their remains were found in the night of 31st October 2021 when two young men pursued a colleague who stole a chicken and fled to the caves. As they entered the caves, the young men saw four remains laid together.
They rushed to alert local leaders and relatives who lost children. As they got inside the caves, relatives identified their children with clothes they wore by the time of disappearance.
They all went missing on 15th September 2018. At the time, their parents made possible efforts to establish whereabouts their children but ended up in vain.
The executive secretary of Bugeshi sector, Jean Bosco Rwibasira has confirmed that the children’s remains have been retried from caves.
“It is true that children’s remains have been found. Rwanda Investigation Bureau and the Prosecution have arrived at the crime scene pending the decision to bury the remains or proceed with further investigation,” he explained.
As the four children went missing in 2018, suspects were arrested and released after spending eight months behind bars.
IGIHE has learnt, by press time, that the remains were taken to one of parents whose children went missing while the suspected thief was taken into custody at Bugeshi RIB Post.
