The Rwanda military has released from custody former Rwanda Air Force chief of staff Lt. Gen. Charles Muhire, The Great Lakes Voice has reliably learnt.

The Rwanda Defence Forces [RDF] spokesman Lt Col. Jill Rutaremara confirmed the reports without divulging details. Rutaremara said that Muhire was released on 13th April 2011 following a disciplinary sentence.

“He [Gen. Muhire] apologized to RDF leadership and his apology was accepted. He is now back home,” Lt Col. Rutaremara told Great Lakes Voice.

When asked about Muhire’s next deployment, Lt. Col Rutaremara said that “the issue of deployment comes after one is released, what is important is that now is that he has been cleared and he is as free as before.”

Gen. Muhire, the last serving member of the historical RPF high command was detained in April 2010 shortly after being appointed commander of the then newly created reserve forces charged with alleged abuse of office and corruption among other charges.

Gen. Muhire was for several months detained at his private home in Kigali but letter transferred to the military police detention facility at Kanombe Barracks.

Muhire, 53, graduated with a higher diploma in Orthopedics and traumatology at Mulago hospital before joining the Ugandan army where he was commissioned in 1986.

He was among the first mobilizers who raised the Rwandan Patriotic Army that liberated Rwanda in 1994. In July 2007 he was awarded an Order of Honour medal for his bravery and resilience in the 1990-1994 war.
