According to a statement released via Rwanda National Police’s Twitter wall, two Rwandan nationals have been abducted by Uganda’s Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI), today, at 12:30 pm.
"The two are residents of Gamba village, Tabagwe cell, Tabagwe sector, Nyagatare district, the same area at the border where the recent incident involving smugglers, who lost their lives, took place," reads the statement.
Samvura and Habiyambere were abducted at Gasheke, 1.5km inside Uganda where they had gone to attend a baptism ceremony of the son of their friend Muhwezi Silver.
The two Rwandans had earlier been urged by their friends not to go to Uganda because they feared they would be putting their lives in danger. However, they ignored the warning, insisting that they needed to honor Muhwezi’s invitation.
The two are now part of the long list of the thousands of Rwandans currently languishing in CMI detention centers without access to consular support, legal aid, and unable to appear before the court to get justice in Uganda.
