Rwanda’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation Louise Mushikiwabo says her government has no sympathy for former Rwandan spy boss Patrick Karegeya, who was murdered in South Africa last week.
Rwandan Prime Minister Pierre Habumuremyi has also warned that betraying one’s country brings consequences.
He tweeted yesterday that betraying one’s country will always bear consequences.
Asked if this referred to Patrick Karegeya, He replied not necessarily, but it should be of the values of Rwandan leaders.
In another tweet, Mushikiwabo calls Karegeya an enemy of the nation.
Karegeya was found strangled at the Michelangelo Towers in Sandton late on New Year’s Day.
He had checked into his hotel room on 29 December.
Karegeya fled to South Africa seven years ago and was granted political asylum after Rwandan president Paul Kagame sacked him from his post.
Opposition figures in Rwanda have blamed his killing on the government.
The Rwandan government denies opposition assertions that it targets Kagame’s enemies for the assassination.
Meanwhile, the Hawks say they’re making progress with the investigation into Karegeya’s death.
Hawks spokesperson Paul Ramaloko says they have not yet made any arrests in the case and say they’re not working with the Rwandan authorities.
