Rwandan President Paul Kagame has been accused of killing the country’s former spy chief Patrick Karegeya.
Most of Rwandan dissidents have claimed that the former spy chief was assassinated on the orders of the country’s president in South Africa.
They say, he might have been strangled, with a rope and bloodied towel found in the hotel room safe.His body was discovered in Johannesburg on Wednesday on a bed in the Michelangelo Towers Suites, Johannesburg .
Karegeya, Rwanda’s former spy chief, fled the country after clashing with Paul Kagame .Karegeya had earlier said he expected to be killed because he knew the regime’s ‘dark secrets’.
South African intelligence sources claimed his drink had been spiked with poison to make his death look like suicide.But they added that the killer seemed to have bungled the job and had to strangle him.
Patrick Karegeya had lived with his wife and three children in South Africa for six years, countering Kagame’s attempts to extradite him for ‘threatening state security’.
