Reports recently started circulating claiming the refugee was being targeted for a possible kidnap which Rwanda denies.

While addressing journalists in Kampala, Mugambage explained that it is unfortunate for people like David Kazungu to speak on behalf of the Kigali government without authority adding, that he (Kazungu) is less informed about what is happening.

The Commissioner for Refugees, Mr David Apollo Kazungu, alleged that an attempt by unknown individuals to kidnap Hakizimfura, from the Namayiba Bus Park in Kampala had been foiled.

“It’s not true that the government of Rwanda tried to kidnap anybody from Uganda, Rwanda respects the rule of law and if we want anybody from a foreign country, we have to follow the required legal framework. Those were false allegations,” explained Mugambage.

The Rwandan representative to Uganda added that the government in Kigali is trying to promote justice in the country citing the recently concluded genocide commemoration festivities where many confessed and repented in churches for having involved in the holocaust but were forgiven.

“I urge the government of Uganda through the ministry of Internal Affairs to investigate these matters since it appears that they were planned by individuals aimed at tarnishing the image of the Rwandan government for their personal gains,” he requested.

Mugambage clarified that Hakizimfura was arrested after being cited in a bus with one of the survivors of the Genocide who informed Police but not through a planned mission as it was reported in the media.
