Files of a matron at St. Raphael Secondary School in Rambura Sector, Nyabihu District arrested recently in connection with selling narcotic drugs have been transferred to prosecution, Rwanda Investigation Bureau has said.

Aloysia Vuganeza, 36, was arrested Saturday in a joint operation conducted by the Police and local leaders of Nyundo Cell following residents’ reports about Vuganeza’s alleged criminal dealings.

The matron was caught red-handed with 86 pellets of cannabis recovered from the kitchen and the pigsty.

“Following the arrest of Aloysie Vuganeza, a matron at St. Raphael Secondary School in Rambura in connection with selling narcotic drugs, her files have been transferred to Mukamira primary prosecution,” reads a RIB statement in a tweet.

“RIB commends citizens and local leaders for providing information to deter crime,” adds the statement.

Anyone convicted of selling narcotics to children or teens faces life imprisonment.

Transporting, making and selling narcotic drugs attracts a sentence of between seven years and life in prison, under article 263 of the penal code.
