Police yesterday arrested six Nyaruguru District residents over charges of corruption. Two sector officials, two cell executives and two businessmen in the Southern Province district have been jailed over various allegations including embezzlement, mismanagement of funds and other illicit practices.
The arrested are Jean Christophe Bugingo, Jean Pierre Mugwiza, Benoit Ngendahayo, Leonce Nakure, Devota Mukabatsinda and Jean Baptiste Simugomwa.
Confirming the arrests, CSP Simon Peter Mukama, Regional Police Commander for Southern Province, warned that more arrests were possible.
“The District sent us reports containing accusations against the personnel in question, and those with tangible evidence have been arrested but onto whom the audit is still being done, are not yet arrested. If they are probable reasons, they will be arrested and take before the prosecution,” he said.
