Rwanda: Opposition politician found dead
Anselme Mutuyimana, assistant to Victoire Ingabire, president of the opposition United Democratic Forces (FDU-Inkingi) party, was found dead on the morning of 9 March 2019. Amnesty International calls on the Rwandan authorities to conduct a prompt, impartial, independent and thorough investigation. While the release of Victoire Ingabire on 15 September 2018 was greeted with cautious optimism, events since then demonstrate the relentless dangers and challenges of involvement in opposition politics in Rwanda. Members of the FDU-Inkingi have faced arrest, detention, prosecution, killings and disappearances over many years, stoking fears that Anselme Mutuyimana was killed for politically motivated reasons.
