The body in a sack has been found in bamboos surrounding the lake, 200 meters away from the border between Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
Residents who saw the body told IGIHE that it was laid in a sack with legs touching Lake Kivu water.
“The upper body covered in a sack was on ground while the remaining part was laid in water,” said Jean Pierre Kayitare.
The executive secretary of Cyangugu cell, Mukazayire Liliane, said they are waiting for postmortem results to establish cause of the death.
“We have found the body on water. We are waiting for further details from Rwanda Investigation Bureau and autopsy results. The body covered in a sack was laid on water. It remains ambiguous if he drowned or not,” she said.
The spokesperson of Rwanda Investigation Bureau, Dr Murangira Thierry has told IGIHE that investigation has started to establish cause of the death.
