Exiled Rwandan general’s SA home attacked

2014-03-05 17:32

The SA Police Service says there has been another unsuccessful attempt on the life of a former Rwandan army chief of staff who has been living in exile in the country for the past four years.

Hawks spokesperson Captain Paul Ramaloko said today there were no injuries in the attack on General Faustin Kayumba Nyamwasa’s Johannesburg residence yesterday because no one was home. He said he was unable to provide any further details.

This is the third attempt on Nyamwasa’s life. The former top aide to Rwanda’s president, turned critic, survived two other attempts in 2010.

Nyamwasa’s friend and colleague, former Rwandan spy master Colonel Patrick Karegeya, was assassinated at the posh Michelangelo hotel in Johannesburg in December.
