A man identified as Emmanuel Dusanganywinema has been arrested over allegedly murdering Evariste Sinamenye, 26.

Sinamenye was stabbed to death on Saturday 1st January 2022 in Taba village, Bubangu cell of Murambi sector in Rulindo district.

Preliminary investigation identified Dusanganywinema as the prime suspect who has been at large since the crime was committed.

Two days after a manhunt was launched against him, Dusanganywinema who worked as a griller was arrested in Kamatamu cell of Jabana sector in Gasabo district.

Chief Inspector of Police (CIP) Alex Ndayisenga, the Political and Civic Education Officer in Northern Province has thanked relevant authorities involved in the process and members of the general public who provided information that led the arrest.

“It is true that the man has been arrested in collaboration with relevant security organs including Police, Rwanda Investigation Bureau [RIB] and citizens who provided tip off leading to his arrest. He has been handed over to RIB for further legal process,” he said.

CIP Ndayisenga has urged residents to abide by laws and stand against criminal acts that could result into similar incidents.

The article 111 of the same Law stipulates that killing a person unintentionally attracts between six months and two-year jail term and a fine between Rwf500,000 and Rwf2 million.
