By Mohammed M.Mupenda
President Paul Kagame has dropped Patrick Nyamvumba from his duties as Minister of Internal Security, owing to matters of accountability under investigation- a communique signed by Rwanda’s Prime Minister Eduard Ngirente reads in part.
“General Nyamvumba reports back to RDF headquarters pending further decision,” the communique further reads.
Gen. Nyamvumba has not made a year in the position. He was appointed Minister of Internal Security following his removal from Army Chief in a military shake-up on November 4 2019.
