In a breaking News this sunny May in Nairobi Kenya, the Rwanda fugitive and genocide mastermind Félicien Kabuga has been arrested in Paris, France.
The man who was believed to be hiding in Kenyan army barracks is said to have sponsored attacks on Tutsis which led deaths of more than a million people in Rwanda in 1994.
Sponsored Killings in Kenya too
In July 2012, details emerged that a Kenyan soldier who was charged with protecting Kabuga was killed on orders from shadowy deep state after he secretly took pictures of the fugitive in a Kenyan military barrack, investigative journalists John Allan Namu and now Nyali MP Mohamed Ali ‘Jicho Pevu” revealed.
The army man, Michael Sarunei is said to have disappeared sometime in 2009 after revealing to friends that he was protecting the wanted man Kabuga, as reported by the Daily Nation.
Dr Alfred Mutua, the government spokesman that time and current Machakos County Governor rubbished those claims instead stating that Kabuga does not reside in the country.
“This particular government has not been aware of anything to do with the protection of Mr Kabuga. We are working very closely with the Rwanda government to ensure that this man is arrested,” Dr Mutua said.
The National Intelligence Service (NIS) could not account for their missing ‘staff’ and most people even as pointed by the documentary believed he was killed for revealing such sensitive information.
A freelance Journalist by the name Michael Munuhe is said to have been tortured to death as ‘he prepared to lead FBI agents to Kabuga’s hideout in Nairobi”.
Munuhe had been abducted a few times back and a written letter pointed to very sensitive information he had.
The Kenyan state was linked to the protection of the Rwanda fugitive as often the name of that time Internal Security permanent secretary Zakayo Cheruiyot often featured in stories about Kabuga’s refuge in Kenya.
