Rwanda Rebels Arrested In Uganda Planned To Topple Kagame


A top UPDF general tells Chimpreports investigations desk that Capt. Charles Sibo, Robert Rutinywa and Anthony Rugigana admitted to have nurtured plans of destablising Rwanda.

UPDF 2nd division Commander Brig. Patrick Kankiriho says after confessing to their “wrong plans,” the army handed them over to police to facilitate their prosecution in courts of law.

“When we arrested them, they pleaded guilty to have been involved in rebel activities in Nyakivale camp,” notes Kankiriho.

“We were very clear to them that Uganda is a country that follows the rule of law. We told them that they would be charged in courts of law. That’s the part we played,” observes Kankiriho.

This website has established that these rebel suspects served in the Rwanda Defence Forces (RDF) before illegally entering Uganda.

Kankiriho said the trio lacked “proper” identification particulars thus leading to their arrest.

The arrest could be seen as a step forward in consolidating the military relations between the two countries.

Military intelligence sources separately said the suspects were in touch with Rwanda exiled army generals to coordinate their subversive activities.
