Rwanda National Police (RNP) has cautioned against deceit by some members of the public as means to conduct "unnecessary movements."

RNP warns that anyone, who will be caught for such deceitful actions will be dealt with accordingly.

The warning follows the arrest on Sunday, of Bishop Liliane Mukabadege of Hope Prayer Mountain Church in Kimisagara, Nyarugenge District, who lied Police officers of where she was headed.

"Rwanda National Police has arrested Bishop Liliane Mukabadege after she lied officers, who were implementing the government directives meant to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, that she was going to give a talk-show on radio," said RNP spokesperson, Commissioner of Police (CP) John Bosco Kabera.

He added: "Police officers trailed her to the church in Kimisagara where she was instead going, where she was arrested and her vehicle impounded."

"When a Police officer stops you, we advise you to avoid telling lies; when you violate the guidelines, you are answerable to it."

CP Kabera warned that "whoever will be found not complying with the directives will be arrested, fined, and their automobiles impounded."

He encouraged the public to report anyone violating the directives by calling the toll-free line 112 or text on Whatsapp 0788311155
