Emmanuel Muganga, 39, a resident of Kigabiro in Remera Sector, Gasabo District was arrested in Nyagatare Sector, Barija cell where the Rwanda National Police (RNP) department of Testing and Licensing was supervising driving tests.
Superintendent of Police (SP) Hamdun Twizeyimana, the Police spokesperson for the Eastern region, said that Muganga had registered to do tests for category ’A’ driver’s license. Category ’A’ is for a motorcycle.
"Police officers from the department of Testing and Licensing, who were verifying the documents of candidates before doing the driving tests, realized that Muganga’s provisional driver’s license was forged and they arrested him," said SP Twizeyimana.
Investigations indicate that Muganga passed a provisional driving test in 2015 but neither did he pay for it or collect it.
Recently, with the help of one only identified as Hategekimana, a driving instructor, they allegedly forged a provisional driving license, which he was caught with.
Muganga allegedly paid Hategekimana Frw30,000 for the illegal service. The search for Hategekimana is still underway.
SP Twizeyimana warned the public against forging driver’s license and other related criminal acts.
Last week, another man was arrested at a driving test centre in Rwamagana District also with a forged driver’s license.
