Stories pertaining to the death of singer Kizito Mihigo spread fast after his death and revealed a lot of information that had been hidden from the public. Recently, Action Chrétienne pour l’Abolition de la Torture (ACAT), a French organization which fights for the abolition of torture announced that Kizito had been in contact with them at the end of 2019, seeking advice on how he could flee Rwanda.

In an interview with British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), Clément Boursin, ACAT representative in Africa said that Kizito had consulted them asking how he could leave Rwanda and they advised him to wait for conflicts between Rwanda, Uganda, and Burundi to settle.

“We advised him that the political situation between Rwanda and its neighboring countries was precarious at the moment and told him it would be a bad move to flee Rwanda.”

ACAT advised him not to violate his conditional liberty and wait for a good political atmosphere. “After all the advice we gave him, we were surprised to hear he had been apprehended trying to leave the country.”

Kizito had lost all hope of ever building a career in music in Rwanda given that his fan base had considerably reduced after he was convicted.

The sneaky ways Kizito used to flee the country further testify on how different he was from the renowned gospel singer figure he had built over the years.

News of his death evoked different reactions including Rwanda dissidents especially Kayumba Nyamwasa who compared him to a ‘savior’.

Many other people testified about Kizito’s plans to perpetrate genocide denial and that he had concocted the evil scheme since the release of ‘Igisobanuro cy’urupfu’, a song which advanced the double genocide theory.

Over the years, he had built a network with leaders of anti-Rwanda terrorist groups including RNC, FDLR, Jambo ASBL and notorious genocide revisionist, Charles Onana.

The 38-year old singer died from suicide three days after he was apprehended in Nyaruguru district as he tried to escape to Burundi.

Rwanda Investigation Bureau(RIB) confirmed he had plans of joining terrorist groups aiming at destabilizing the security of Rwanda.
