Press Release:

The Democratic Green Party of Rwanda calls upon all concerned authorities in the Republic of Rwanda to expedite investigations into the continued disappearance of it’s National Organising Secretary, Mr.Jean Damascene Munyeshyaka, who went missing on 27th June.

The Democratic Green Party of Rwanda is very concerned and worried that two weeks later, there is no trace of life or death of Mr.Jean Damscene Munyeshyaka. The police investigations seem to be moving very slow.

DGPR’s President and Munyeshaka’s wife reported the case at Nyamata Police Station in Bugesera District on 30th June. They met the District Police Commander and gave him all relevant details.

The Party President in accompany of the First Vice President and the Secretary General also went to the Police Headquarters on 3rd July and met with the Commissioner of Criminal Investigations Department and later recorded a statement with a senior CID official.

Munyeshyaka’s wife also recorded a statement with the Police’s Criminal Investigation Department in Kigali on 7th July.

DGPR believes that Government exists to protect and ensure the unalienable rights of the people, which include the right to life, liberty, peaceful assembly, expression, worship and the pursuit of happiness. Its’s not our responsibility to protect our members but that of the state.
