This fleeing family is a blood relative to exiled Rwanda’s former Chief of Staff, Lt. Gen. Kayumba Nyamwasa.

Military sources say the Mbabazi family is suspected of being one of the masterminds of a series of grenade blasts that rocked the capital Kigali in February, 2010, killing dozens and leaving others dead.

This family’s missing came a few days after RDF spokesman stated the RDF had a clear picture of the network behind the attacks – from the source of funding, the origins of the explosives, the distribution channel to all those involved.

Kigali maintains two dissident RDF officers; Gen. Kayumba Nyamwasa and Col. Patrick Karegeya are the key architects of the grenade attacks.

The Government quickly blamed the FDLR, but later shifted the blame to Gen. Nyamwasa, after his escape to South Africa.

Reliable security sources abroad who declined to be named because they are not authorized to speak to the media confirmed to this investigative website that the family now claims political persecution.

“The family claims being fearful abroad. They think President Kagame’s operative agents are trialing them – a reason they want asylum abroad,” the security source said.

According to reports, the authorities in Rwanda suspect Hirwa as a strong coordinator of Rwanda National Congress (RNC) and mobiliser back home.

RNC is a Rwandan political party that was formed by exiled Rwandan military officers Gen. Kayumba Nyamwasa and Col. Patrick Karegeya among others.

A group of Rwandans living in exile around the globe and inside Rwanda joined the party since it was formed two years ago, calling for important political reforms in their native country and for the establishment of the Rwanda National Congress, “an umbrella, broad-based organization for all Rwandans to exert pressure and advocate for democratic change through peaceful means.”

It’s said, that the Rwandan people have never had the opportunity to fully realize their aspirations for freedom, security and prosperity,” Proclamation also asserts that under “the Rwandese Patriotic Front (RPF), the party that governs Rwanda today.

Rwanda claims the likes of Kayumba ran to exile in fear of strict accountability measures against them.
