Rwanda genocide suspect hiding in Zim?


A suspected Rwandan genocide fugitive, who was recently arrested in Malawi, may have sneaked into Zimbabwe, Rwanda’s official daily New Times has reported.

Charles Bandora, 56, a former senior official of the Rwandan ruling party during the 1994 genocide, was released in circumstances that have incensed the Rwandan government.

“It’s true he is out of jail and his whereabouts are still unknown up to now. But there are reports that he has escaped to Zimbabwe,” the paper,quoting its sources, reported in its Friday edition.

Officials from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Harare referred all enquiries to Isaac Mukaro, Zimbabwe’s commissioner for refugees, who asked this paper to put questions in writing to the permanent secretary of labour and social welfare.
