Ismael Manzi, Alexandre’ Sengiyumva AKA Samandora, the newspaper vendors at mille -collines site, were reportedly arrested on Thursday August 04, 2011 by the publisher of regional news magazine “The Independent” Andrew Mwenda after calling Nyarugenge police commander for a help.

The two vendors are accused to have changed the price of the current copy of Independent and at least doubled the price. Also Rwanda dispatch and a previews local tabloid Ishema is reportedly to have suffered the same blackmail.

“…Andrew Mwenda was like purchasing the independent, around 6:50-7:00 Pm and he saw the price changed, so he immediately called Nyarugenge police commander who took the boys to detention,” a vendor who was at the site said.

Speaking to the prosecution spokesman, Allan Mukurulinda confirmed the arrest and added that when they are convicted, will serve 5-10years inn prison.
