Rwanda Police has arrested Eng. Didier Sagashya, former Executive Secretary of the Kigali City Council, along with two other staff for allegedly destroying ‘important’ files.
Sagashya was sacked on November 14, for ordering the two staff to tear and destroy dossiers from files in the City’s directorate of inspection, according the Executive Committee Chairman, Athanase Rutabingwa.
Rwanda National Police Spokesperson ACP Theos Badege confirmed the arrest to local press and said that the trio are being investigated.
“He was arrested on Wednesday and he is being investigated as the first step in the process to justice,” he said.
The first charge, he said, is hiding evidence as stipulated in article 571 of the penal code and destroying documents as provided for by article 609. “Those offences were [allegedly] (sic) committed while he was a leader at Kigali City against authorities,” Badege added.
The two other suspects in the case are Merard Mpabwanamaguru and Enos Twahirwa.
Eng. Didier Sagashya has been serving in capacity of Executive Secretary since February this year after another two years as the Director General of Rwanda Housing Authority.
