Kigali-Pierre-Célestin Rwigema, the former Rwandan prime minister has been confirmed to have arrived into the country after many years in exile.

In 2001, he was accused of alleged involvement in the 1994 Rwanda genocide and government issued an arrest warrant issued for him after his resignation as Prime Minister.

After his resignation, Rwigema fled to the United States where he sought political asylum.

No government authority has confirmed the story but quoted foreign affairs permanent secretary Marry Baine as affirming the arrival.

The minister of Cabinet affairs, Protais Musoni told that, “it was not a big deal for Rwigema to be in the country because nobody chased him.”

A highly placed source who proffered his names not revealed, said that Rwigema is in the country and is expected to hold a press conference on Monday.

Rwigema was born on 27 July 1953, He was Prime minister from 1995–2000 and Education Minister from 1994-1995.

The government of Rwanda reportedly told the U.S. government that Rwigema had been involved in the genocide and asked that he be arrested.

However, later on an immigration judge cleared Rwigema and was eventually granted political asylum by the United States immigration court in Detroit.
