It is believed that the three were arrested due to their close relationship with General Kayumba who lives in exile in South Africa.

(WASHINGTON D.C.) - Sources in the UDF and RDF reported to this reporter that the four generals in Rwanda that have been arrested was falsely reported as being arrested for questionable dealings in the DRC but in reality they were arrested due to the fleeing of 600-800 soldiers in December 2011.

The arrest of these Generals has led to them allegedly being tortured.

According to sources near the situation Colonel Dan Munyuza is reportedly being tortured worse than the other Generals in the last 24 hours due to being head of Foreign Intelligence for the RDF and not providing information asked of him.

He failed to find the whereabouts of the soldiers who left with their weapons and their Battalion Commander. He worked closely with General N. Kayumba from 1990 to 2000 and was under his command the entire time. Due to this relationship with General Kayumba, President Kagame does not believe these Generals to be telling the truth about the missing battalion.

President Kagame has been visiting Uganda over the last few months in order to locate the missing battalion. President Kagame visited President Museveni of Uganda over the Christmas holiday in order to seek the assistance of President Museveni and the UDF in locating the missing battalion but failed to do so.

Upon his return to Rwanda, President Kagame deployed RDA soldiers to the Uganda/Rwanda border in Muvumba, Nyabweshongweizi, all near AKagera National Park. They camped there for 5-6 days then were withdrawn.

The goal of the mission on the border was to detain the missing soldier in case they attempted to return to Rwanda. Kagame has been unsuccessful in this venture and has become increasingly frustrated with this situation which led to the arrests of these four Generals.

General Wilson Gumisiriza of the RDF is the Division commander of the western Province which hosted the battalion that went missing. He is also being tortured due to not providing information.

General Fred Ibingira, who is Head of the Reserve Force, was asked to intervene in finding out the location of the battalion. He was unable to locate the missing soldiers and was subsequently arrested.

General Richard Rutatina, Director of Internal Intelligence and brother to Gen. Kayumba wife, has also been detained on the same charges. He is also being tortured in order to obtain information.

It is believed that these three Generals and the Colonel were arrested due to their close relationship with General Kayumba who lives in exile in South Africa. General Kayumba has survived two attempts on his life believed to have been ordered by President Kagame, of which President Kagame denies.

General Fred Ibingira was the Commanding Officer of the 157th Battalion in the 1990’s and worked closely with General Wilson Gumisiriza during that time. Due to their close relationship President Kagame believes both men have vital information on the whereabouts of the battalion and are not providing it.

When UN accused Paul Kagame along with Museveni of Uganda of committing war crimes and looting DR Congo,he vehemently denied all allegations.Ironically now he came up with a concoted story using Congo,the very country in which he denied any involvement of wrongdoing to arrest these Generals.

Thus,another evidence how these "new breed African leaders"use farcical charges against critics, dissidents and opposition political figures.

First of all, u need to read ur map of rwanda properly. Nyabushugwenzi is in the east and not the west where gusumiriza was commanding a division. Secondly, this issue of missing batallion is just one of the diversion of kayumba's to show that they have a force. We can no longer be distracted by that. Get ur fact clear. One man account is always not sufficient.
