Kigali-The Democratic Green Party of Rwanda is anxious to see that those who perpetrated the July 13 heinous act face justice-this was the email sent to great lakesvoice.com in apart

“Today July 13th 2011, marks one year since our slain First Vice President Andre Kagwa Rwisereka, went missing and his body found decapitated the next day, in Butare, Rwanda.

We call upon the Rwandan Government to expedite the investigations and bring to justice all those responsible. He was found murdered and partially beheaded on 14 July 2010” Frank Habineza said in a press release

In the telephone interview with Rwanda public prosecution authority spokesman, Allan Mukurarinda, said that the suspect that the prosecution had, there was no sufficient evidences against him and was latter released.

“We had opened the case against one suspect who had spent the day with Rwisereka before he was killed, but Butare court found that there ware no sufficient evidences to pin the suspect and the case was transferred to Nyanza high court that also said that the suspect is innocent.” Mukurarinda said

“We are still investigating his death; we can’t say when we shall finish the investigation. Remember, in our laws here, crimes of rape and murder is added to other capital crimes which has no prescription. One day, we are going to bring the killers to book,” Mukurarinda added

According to his family, Mr. Andre Kagwa Rwisereka grew up in Democratic Republic of Congo, the then Zaire, after leaving Rwanda in the late 50 as a teenager. He lived in the Kivu area where he rose to become young headmaster of high school in Uvira in the 70s.

Everyone knew him as Prefet. Later he became businessman with successful businesses in Bukavu and in Burundi.

He was an active member of RPF since the beginning up to 2009 when he decided to leave the party because he perceived that his former party had departed from its founding principles as he had known it. He joined a young Democratic Green Party.

Memorial services will be held this week in the United Kingdom, Sweden, Canada and Rwanda.
