Gatera Stanley, Editor of Umusingi

Stanley Gatera, Editor of Umusingi Newspaper has been detained at Kicukiro Police station after two days of Interrogation by Police CID on grounds of arranged divisions and gender discrimination based on the opinion published in his paper.

In Late June publication Umusingi run an opinion story in love corner that Tutsi women are responsible of family breakdown. Police spokesperson, Theos Badege was not answering our call when contacted.

Jean Bosco Rushingabigwi, the chair of Rwanda editor’s forum told Great Lakes Voice that editors are trying to discuss the way-forward. “Yes, Stanley has been under interrogations for some time, we have tried to avoid his arrest and now we are going to discuss the issue as soon as possible.” Rushingabigwi said

Two journalist also who were detained have been set free temporary. Some Rwanda journalists are seen protesting against Police move. “This profession seems to be getting bitter but stay ethical and vigilant,” Fred Muvunyi, advisor at the bord of Rwanda journalist association (ARJ) said.

“The use of divisionism laws is now a major threat to the existence of free media in Rwanda. The media does not understand why police continue to detain journalists when it is impossible to prove criminal intent in courts of law. The supreme court has already set a precedent in this regard.” Gonzague Muganwa, the independent journalist said

A meeting of a group of journalist is to take place at 0400hrs local time to discuss the way-forward.
