Ibuka, the umbrella organisation for Genocide survivors' associations, has welcomed the arrest of Fulgence Kayishema, one of the fugitives most wanted for crimes committed in the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda, who was arrested on Wednesday, May 25, in Paarl, South Africa. The 63-year-old former head of the genocidal government’s judicial police in the former Kibuye prefecture is alleged to have played a key role in planning and implementing the killing of approximately 2,000 Tutsi – women, men, children and elderly – at the Nyange Catholic Church during the 1994 Genocide.

It is expected that Kayishema will be transferred to Rwanda for trial. Kayishema, a man who committed genocide at his birthplace in the former Kibuye Prefecture, had been on the run for nearly three decades, first disguising himself as a Burundian national and then as a Malawian, and using multiple names and aliases, to evade capture. To evade arrest, relied on a network of supporters, including family members, members of the former Rwandan army and FDLR, and those aligned with the Hutu Power ideology.
