She was caught already seated in a bus heading to Muhanga. The maid had only been hired for two weeks by a family living in Kigarama Cell, in Kicukiro District.
Police spokesman in Kigali City, CIP Marie Goreth Umutesi, told IGIHE that the girl was caught when she was heading to her ancestry home.
“Her intentions were to take the child with her and demand a ransom to give the child back. She has not specified the amount of money she had planned to ask for; all she has said was she wanted money from them. She was going to take a bus from Nyabugogo heading to her home place in Muhanga; she even had paid her ticket,” she said.
She was retained at Nyabugogo station then transferred to RIB.
