Kayonga’s new assignment is yet to be revealed.

President Kagame further said in a statement on Saturday night that Brigadier Gen. Jack Nziza, former permanent secretary in the Ministry of Defence, was elevated to the rank of Major General and appointed Inspector General of the Rwanda Defense Forces.

Nziza has been replaced with Col. Joseph Rutabana.

Brig. Gen. Richard Rutatina, who was put under house arrest in January 2012 over indiscipline but later freed, was also promoted to the rank of Major General.

Before being suspended and put under house arrest, Rutatina was the Director Military Intelligence.

It appears Kagame also pardoned Colonel Dan Munyuza by appointing him Deputy Inspector General of Police in charge of operations.

Formerly the head of External Security Organization (ESO), Munyuza was also among officers who were put under house arrest. They included Rutatina, Brig. Gen. Wilson Gumisiriza (Commander Third Division) and Lt Gen Fred Ibingira.

Meanwhile, Kagame on Saturday presided over the Closing Ceremony of the four-day Ministry of Defence and Rwanda Defence Forces retreat held at RDF Headquarters.

Kagame talked to the RDF Officers on a wide range of issues. The Retreat was a periodic review of defence strategies.
