Truro Daily News - - WORLD -

KIGALI, Rwanda — The brother of a for­mer pres­i­den­tial hope­ful in Rwanda says Diane Rwigara has been ar­rested again in the cap­i­tal. Aris­tide Rwigara, who lives in the United States, says his sis­ter was taken from their Kigali home Fri­day along with their mother, Ade­line, and sis­ter Anne. Rwan­dan po­lice have not con­firmed the ar­rest. Author­i­ties have said Diane Rwigara is un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion for tax eva­sion and forgery. She was briefly ar­rested late last month.

The Rwigara fam­ily says it has been tar­geted by the gov­ern­ment over Rwigara’s crit­i­cisms of long­time Pres­i­dent Paul Kagame.
