General Musabyimana Juvenal, the commander of RUD-Urunana was killed in an operation by the Congolese Army (FARDC) early Saturday.

The former Forces Armee Rwandais (ex-FAR) officer was a member of the FDLR/FOCA before joining RUD-Urunana, the armed wing of Victoire Ingabire’s FDU Inkingi, then under the command of General Ndibabaje alias Musare.

The spokesperson of the special force called Sokola 2 of the Congolese army (FARDC) told IGIHE that Musabyimana was killed close to the border with Uganda in Binza, Rutchuru, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Gen. Musabyimana grew within the ranks of FDU-Inkingi becoming its overall military commander until his death.

The Congolese army(FARDC) has revealed that Gen Musabyimana was found with classified information linking him to Uganda’s top security officials.

The information shows that Gen. Musabyimana had been frequenting Uganda and had been in constant communication with that country’s officials.

Sources reveal that RUD-Urunana was created by Uganda’s intelligence with the specific mission of destabilizing Rwanda under the coordination of Philemon Mateke.

Mateke has also been the contact person between the FDLR and Uganda’s leadership.

The classified intelligence on Musabyimana aka Jean-Michel Africa also shows that he was in constant contact with Uganda’s Minister of State for Regional Affairs, Philemon Mateke who has been working tirelessly to coordinate the forces that seek to destabilize Rwanda and that leaders of the “P5” like Major Frank Ntilikina (deputy to Kayumba Nyamwasa in the P5 armed wing) FDU Inkingi have been in frequent communication with him. Maj Ntilikina is based in France, and have been frequenting Uganda and remain in constant communication with senior officials of that country.

Last month on the night of October 4, RUD-Urunana carried out an attack in Kinigi, Musanze district, in the Northern Province, which claimed 14 lives and injured 18 people. The security forces repulsed the killers, killing nineteen and apprehending five. Three of the commanders who managed to escape withdrew to Uganda. Sources say that they are in Uganda under protection in a UPDF barracks.

This prompted Rwanda government to write a note verbale to the authorities in Uganda demanding the extradition of the killers who had retreated to its territory. However, no response has been received to-date, sources say.
