Three more suspects including two M23 ex-combatants have been arrested in connection to the shooting of Isaac Sendegeya, a prominent lawyer in Kisoro district.  

The suspects are Charles Munyaneza alias Seruhasha, Claude Ndagizimana, both M23 ex-combatants and Congolese nationals and Steven Mfitundinda alias Season, a Boda boda rider in Bunagana town board and resident of Kabaya village in Nyarubuye Sub County in Kisoro district.   

 

Sendegeya was shot dead by two unidentified gunmen at his residents in Nturo village in the wee hours of July 21, 2019.  The deceased had earlier been seen at a night club in Kisoro town. 

A police detective attached to Kisoro Police station told URN on condition of anonymity on Sunday evening that Ndagizimana handed himself to Mbarara Police Station on Saturday from Nakivale Refugee camp and was driven to Kisoro police station.     

According to detective, Ndagizimana surrendered after learning that he was on the list of those wanted over Sendegeya’s shooting and has no way of escaping. The source says that Mfitundinda has confessed to police that they were hired by Sikola Nyiramajambere and her husband, Asuman Hagumakwiha, Issah Mvano, Asuman Tito Hahumakwiha and Vianny Mvano Issah to shoot the deceased. 

These were picked up on July 23, 2019 for sending death threats to Sendegeya before he was shot. 

According to the detective, Nyiramajambere reportedly paid Munyaneza, Ndagizimana and others still at large Shillings 8 million to kill Sendegeya after he won a civil land case No. 028/2017 on behalf of his client only identified as Migyera against them. Mfitundinda is said to have used a motorcycle to ride assailants to execute their mission.   

Elly Maate, Kigezi Region Police Spokesperson has confirmed the arrest of the three more suspects, saying that they are being detained to Kisoro police station as police searches for the remaining suspects and the firearm they used to commit the crime.
