Emmanuel Bakundukize, the husband of the deceased was the first to see the body and alerted security officials and Rwanda Investigation Bureau (RIB). The body has been taken to Mugonero Hospital for postmortem.

The Executive Secretary of Twumba Sector, Saiba Gashanana has told IGIHE that the cause of suicide remains unknown because they had mended their relationship.
“We have reminded residents that taking own lives doesn’t solve any problems in whatever circumstances. People having problems should come to us for assistance instead of committing suicide. We are here to advise them,” he said.
