The incident took place in Nyabiranga Village, Muhororo Cell of Murambi Sector on 28th June 2022 around 12:00 as a teacher went for break and passed by the lady’s tea shop to buy beignets for children.
It is said that the lady asked the man to pay Rwf18000 but the teacher complained that it was too much money and transferred Rwf10000 via Mobile Money.
After sending the money, sources reveal, they got in heated argument where the lady brought a knife and stabbed the old man on the chest below the heart.
Twagirayesu has been a teacher at Groupe Scolaire Nkoto.
The Executive Secretary of Murambi Sector, Phanuel Uwimana has told IGIHE that the Head Teacher of GS Nkoto called him around 12:30 to alert him about his teacher’s critical condition after the incident.
Uwimana called for an ambulance but found Twagirayesu dead upon arrival.
“We have convened residents in a meeting and reminded them to seek assistance from leaders whether at village, cell or sector level to settle disputes amicably,” he said.
Witnesses said that the lady asked for excessive money noting that they didn’t understand how 15 students ate beignets worth Rwf18000.
The lady aged 25 has one child. She hails from Biguhu Cell of Ruganda Sector but moved to Murambi when she was pregnant.
She is currently detained at Gashari RIB Post pending further legal process.
The body of Twagirayesu was taken to Kilinda Hospital for autopsy.
