Top Rwandan Military Officer Arrested for Coup Plot

Sources in Rwanda tell AfroAmerica Network that another top Rwandan military officer was arrested in Kigali today. The military officer, Lt Colonel  Steven Ngabo Rugigana is the brother of General Kayumba Nyamwasa. General Kayumba Nyamwasa was a victim of an assassination attempt on June 19, 2010 in Johannesburg, South Africa where he has sought exile (see our article here ).

The South African Government pointed a finger to intelligence operatives from Rwanda as responsible for the failed assassination. This led to a strain in the two governments relations; The South African Government eventually recalled its Ambassador to Rwanda (see our article here and here).
