NYAGATARE – Police in Gatunda sector, Nyagatare district on Thursday arrested two men in connection with the distilling of a local brew commonly known as Kanyanga. 

Police said Damian Barazirana and Jean Claude Mbonyurwanda, were nabbed while distilling the illegal brew in Rugabiro cell, Mukama sector.  

‘They were distilling the lethal brew at the time of their  arrest. They attempted to run away but our officers managed to catch them,’ a police official said.
