The Rwandan Judiciary, RIB, has announced the arrest of Mr Christopher Kayumba, who recently formed the Democratic Party, which is in opposition to the current regime in Rwanda. The RIB suspects him of crimes against women.
According to the twitter website, the RIB announced on Wednesday that it had detained Mr Kayumba after an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct and sexual misconduct.
Before attending the event, however, Mr. Kayumba was preparing for a press conference and explained what he saw as the basis for re-invitation from the RIB. One of the speakers was journalist Dieudonne Niyonsenga. One of them texted her and told her she was in jail.
In various discussions, Mr. Kayumba has often denied the allegations against the police, calling them “moderate political”.
Kayumba, a former lecturer at the University of Rwanda in the School of Media and Communication, is a political researcher and analyst.
One of the women accused of violence is one of her former students. His accusers abused him in 2017. It remains to be seen how the allegations were made four years after Kayumba formed the Rwandese Platform for Democracy, which is in opposition to the current regime.
The party was formed after his release from prison where he was jailed for a year for trying to disrupt security at the airport. In addition to Kayumba’s detention, Mr. Jean Bosco Nkusi was first detained. They had joined forces to form a party in charge of the campaign. Kayumba has been called up since announcing the formation of a political party that opposes the current regime in Rwanda.
Since his founding, Kayumba has been widely criticized for his lack of mouth in criticizing the current regime in Rwanda. In a lengthy open letter to Rwandan President Paul Kagame even before he formed the party, Kayumba somewhere reminded that the perception of the people in power should change. He says they should no longer see power as a parent but should see power as a social worker who is paid by those people.
The RIB police said in a statement on Twitter that Kayumba was currently being held at RIB Kicukiro station while the case was being processed.
