Rwanda’s president, the all-powerful Paul Kagama has reportedly arrested a mother and her two daughters because one of the daughters dared to challenge him by attempting to run against him in the presidential election.
Vinny Radak took to Twitter to share the news, writing: “Paul Kagame jails Mother and her daughters because the daughter wanted to run for presidency.”
Earlier last month, on September 4th precisely, Rwandan authorities arrested Diane Shima Rwigara, a leading critic of Rwanda’s president.
Then, later in September, she was arrested again. And charged with “offenses against state security and forgery”. Which is different from what she had been charged with when she was arrested earlier.
