Police in South Africa are investigating circumstances in which a Rwandan medical practitioner was recently killed in the city of Cape Town.
Dr. Raymond Dusabe, a Gynecological Oncologist who has been working at King Faisal was found murdered on Monday morning in a flat in Cape Town, according to Rwandan High Commissioner to South Africa Vincent Karega.
Speaking to The New Times Karega said the deceased, who was spending his holidays in the South African city, was apparently stabbed to death and that police are investigating the death.
“King Faisal Hospital is saddened to announce the death of Dr. Raymond Dusabe. The administration wishes to express its most sincere sympathies to his family during this difficult time. His work here will not soon be forgotten. He will be greatly missed. May He Rest In Peace,” the hospital said in a tweet.
Aged 42 years, Dusabe joined King Faisal Hospital in April last year and his coming was described by the hospital director at the time, Dr. Emile Rwamasirabo, as a “plus in the management of female genital cancers in Rwanda.”
He is said to have been the pioneer local practitioner with this kind of specialty.
Having grown up in Burundi, Dusabe returned home in 1998 after completing high school.
He later went on to study medicine at the National University of Rwanda after which he pursued gynecology specialty at the master’s level.
After completing his Master of Medicine Degree (MMed) at Stellenbosch University of South Africa in 2014, Tygerberg's Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology selected and financed him to sub-specialise in gynecologic oncology.
