Rwanda National Police in Kicukiro District, together with local authorities and other security agencies, over the weekend, arrested 20-year-old Umurerwa Zakili after she was suspected of stealing digital money Rwf 68,000Frw from a mobile money agent.

The Police spokesperson for the City of Kigali City, Chief Inspector General of Police (CIP) Marie Gorette Umutesi said the suspect, known to the victim had visited her for a night which she used to scheme for the password, crammed it and borrowed her phone pretending to be making a phone-call only to realise the following morning that she had clandestinely sent herself the money from the agent’s account.

By the time the agent realized that she has been schemed of her money, the thieving visitor had already left.

The suspect was arrested Saturday evening at Giporoso and handed over to the National Police at the Kanombe Police Station for further investigation.

She will be charged with theft.
