Both Theos Badege and Nepo Mbonyumuvunyi will be travelling by next week to attend a one year course in United Kingdom. The duo senior officers in Rwanda Police will be taking Senior Command and Staff course in UK.

In 2002, Tony Kuramba was Police publicist, letter transferred to head CID, then shifted to head Interpol to the section of cross boarder crimes. Now he has been brought back to head CID at acting position, which many senior officers in the force say he might take over the job permanently.

A new Director of International Police-Rwanda Office Peter Karake will be having huge task of tracking international fugitives. However, his critics in Rwanda Police doubt his competence since he has no firm background of investigations. Also they allege he has been away so long and he had turned to be a business man.
