Antoine Ruvebana who once served as the Permanent Secretary at the former Ministry of Disaster Management and Refugee Affairs (MIDIMAR) has been arrested over rape accusations.

Ruvebana held the position from 2012 to 2017 when he was replaced by Olivier Kayumba.

The Spokesperson of Rwanda Investigation Bureau (RIB), Dr. Murangira B. Thierry has confirmed to IGIHE that the suspect accused of raping girls is detained at Kicukiro RIB Post.

One of lawyers familiar with the case has told IGIHE that his files might have been transferred to the Prosecution but the Spokesperson of National Public Prosecution Authority (NPPA) revealed that he has no track of it.

It is said that Ruvebana was arrested on 11th December 2021.

IGIHE has learnt from credible sources that Ruvebana was involved in different rape incidences and defilement, which he is suspected to have committed many years ago where he used to seduce girls with different gifts including clothes to win their hearts.

A witness has told IGIHE that Ruvebana also raped girls when he worked at Rwanda’s embassy in Switzerland in 2006. The witness revealed that victims did not narrate their ordeal lest it would tarnish their image.

According to sources, all the victims were raped between 2003 and 2006.
