Police in Musanze District have recovered Rwf1,544,000, which is part of the money that was reported stolen on Sunday from a resident in the same district in Cyuve Sector, Kabeza Cell in Kabeza Village.

The money was recovered on Monday October 17, from the suspected thief identified as Ayishakiye Claudine, who was also arrested.

Ayishakiye was a house-help, where he allegedly stole Frw1,675,000 from his employer, according to Superintendent of Police (SP) Alex Ndayisenga, the Northern Region Political and Civic Education Officer (RPCEO).

"The victim owns a shop in Gashangiro trading centre. On Monday morning as he was setting off to work, he realized that part of the money amounting to Rwf1,675,000 was missing from his bag. He immediately reported the alleged theft to the Police," SP Ndayisenga said.

He added that the house-help, Ayishakiye, who was still at home, was the first suspect prompting Police officers to search his room where Rwf1,544,000 was recovered hidden in his mattress cover, leading to his arrest.

He advised the young people to always be honest, trustworthy and work hard instead of engaging in such criminal acts and wasting their lives in prison.

Ayishakiye was handed over to RIB at Cyuve station for further investigations.

Article 166 of law determining offences and penalties in general states that; any person convicted of theft is liable to imprisonment for a term of not less than one (1) year and not more than two (2) years and a fine of not less than Rwf1 million and not more than Rwf2 million, community service in a period of six (6) months or only one of these penalties.
