Fugitive Arrested in South Africa for Role in Rwanda Genocide


Arrest and Charges

Fulgence Kayishema, one of the remaining fugitives sought for his involvement in the 1994 Rwanda genocide, has been apprehended in South Africa, according to UN investigators.

The International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals (MICT) confirmed the arrest, stating that Kayishema was one of the world’s most wanted genocide fugitives.

He faces charges of genocide, complicity in and conspiracy to commit genocide, as well as crimes against humanity.

The Mass Grave Discovery

The arrest of Kayishema comes after the discovery of a mass grave in the Mtangatanga forest reserve in Mzimba, Malawi.


The grave contained the remains of 30 Ethiopian nationals who were victims of human trafficking.

The former judicial police inspector, Kayishema, has been on the run since July 2001.

The charges against him include his direct participation in a massacre at a Catholic church in Nyange, where more than 2,000 Tutsi men, women, and children seeking refuge were killed.

It is a testament to the ongoing efforts of international law enforcement agencies to hold those responsible accountable, even after many years have passed.

The charges against Kayishema shed light on the horrific crimes committed during the genocide, and his arrest sends a strong message to other fugitives that justice will eventually catch up with them.

The collaboration between the MICT and South African authorities, as well as other African nations, demonstrates the importance of international cooperation in pursuing justice for such grave crimes.
