The Directorate General of Immigration and Emigration has stated that the passport circulating on social media platforms belonging to Moise Turahirwa -- the founder of Moshions fashion house -- is a deliberately falsified version of a true copy of the owner. According to a statement issued on April 28 regarding the social media post in question, the genuine passport that was issued to Moise Turahirwa by the Directorate General of Immigration and Emigration was deliberately manipulated on the date of birth and sex. The Directorate added that the falsified copy was also tampered with in the field that is supposed to have a passport number. Turahirwa was arrested on Thursday, April 27, for alleged document forgery and drug abuse. He identifies himself as a member of the LGBTQ+ community.
