This decision was made on August 28, 2023, as indicated in an official statement endorsed by Hategekimana Jules, president of the district’s advisory council.
Mukamasabo assumed the position of Nyamasheke District Mayor in 2019, succeeding Aimé Fabien Kamali following his resignation.
During that period, various regions across the country held elections in response to the wave of mayoral resignations. The specific grounds for Mukamasabo’s dismissal have not yet been publicly disclosed.
Additionally, on the same day, President Paul Kagame removed François Habitegeko from his role as the Governor of Western Province, to which the district belongs.
