President Paul Kagame has removed General Patrick Nyamvumba from his duties as Minister of Internal Security, a statement signed by the Prime Minister Edouard Ngirente.

Nyamvumba’s removal from office was attributed to an ongoing investigation on matters of accountability. Nyamvumba will be reporting to the Rwanda Defense Forces until further decisions are taken.

Previously, Nyamvumba was serving as the Chief of Defence Staff of the Rwanda Defence Force before a shakeup in the top military brass in November 2019 whereby General Jean Bosco Kazura replaced him.

Gen. Nyamvumba is the 5th Minister to be removed from Cabinet duty this year; prior to him were of Dr. Diane Gashumba (Former Minister of Health), Evode Uwizeyimana (Former Minister of State in charge of Constitutional and Legal Affairs), Isaac Munyakazi (Minister of State in charge of Primary and Secondary Education) and Olivier Nduhungirehe, (former Minister of State in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation in charge of East African Community).
