Ku itariki ya 8 Gicurasi 2012 umusore witwa Mutabazi Sadiki w’imyaka 18 ukomoka mu karere ka Rutsiro, umurenge wa Ruhango, akagari ka Kavumu, umududugu wa Gakeri akaba ariko yabaga mu karere ka Rubavu, umurenge wa Rugerero, akagari ka Gisa aho yashakiraga ubuzima yaritwitse akoresheje essence nyuma yo kwamburwa ibyo yacuruzaga, amafaranga yari yacuruje yose ndetse no gukubitwa n’Inkeragutabara na local defenses.
Nyuma y’iki gikorwa cyo kwitwika uyu muhungu yahise ajyanwa byihutirwa mu bitaro bya Gisenyi ariko kubera ukuntu yari yangiritse ibitaro bya Gisenyi bikaba byamunaniwe, uyu munsi bikaba byamwohereje kuvurirwa i Kigali muri CHUK.
Like many other young orphans from vulnerable families, the victim was surviving on very low incomes from street sales in order to feed his family. The inhumane acts carried on by crappy security personnel in Rwanda are on the rise in the whole country. Acts of intimidation such as man hunt, confiscation of private items, public beating, torture or arbitrary imprisonment are common for lower class citizens.
FDU-Inkingi is denouncing this unrelenting barbaric conduct of members of security apparatus and urges the government of Rwanda to make sure that the life of this burnt young boy is not in danger, to bring to book those involved in this incident and to refund the stolen property.
There is no hope if no justice is done.
