City Tycoon Gaposho Arrested




The famous businessman, Gaposho, also known as Jean Gahunde Mafutamingi, has been arrested and held by RIB at Remera station.

Taarifa can confirm that he is being accused of mishandling his vicious dogs that have terrorized residents in his posh estate located in Rwinyana Village, Musezero Cell of Gisozi Sector in Gasabo District.

“It’s true; we have Jean Gahunde Mafutamingi in our custody as we investigate his links to incidents in which the dogs he owns have bitten four people,” said Dr. Thierry Murangira, RIB’s Spokesperson.

A subsequent investigation found out that there are about ten cases and in difference incidents where his dogs attacked residents and inflicted severe injuries.

A recent case that triggered the arrest of Gaposho is where two of his dogs attacked a foreign resident who was exiting his gate for jogging. He was hospitalized at King Faisal hospital.

After an investigation was conducted, witnesses began confessing in big numbers. He is accused of neglecting the deadly dogs and dismissing complaints from residents. One of the residents said a case was reported to the cell (Mudugudu). Gaposho arrogantly dismissed the allegations and said that he is not the only one who owns dogs in the neighborhood.

He was arrested on September 26 on his way to Kigali from Rubavu. Findings of investigation will be communicated, Dr. Murangira told Taarifa this Monday morning.

“People who own dogs for one reason or another should rear them responsibly and not allow them to endanger the public. Those who see these dogs or threatened/bitten by them should immediately report to the Police. It’s a matter of safety and security,” RNP Spokesperson, CP John Bosco Kabera told Taarifa.

Ugandan Intelligence Abducts Two Rwandan Students



Taarifa has learnt that two Rwandan nationals, Aimable Ndayishimye and Mary Kabahizi, students of Bugema University, were abducted by Uganda’s Military Intelligence operatives (CMI) in Mbarara while on their way to Rwanda.

We are reliably informed by sources that they are currently held at Makenke military barracks in Mbarara.

The students have valid travel documents.

Ironically, Taarifa’s sources say while the intelligence outfit held the two innocent students, it was busy making interventions to release six RUD URUNANA recruiting agents who had been arrested by Police in Kakumiro, a town in Western Uganda.

The agents were reportedly released yesterday on orders of CMI.

Rud Urunana is a militia blamed for the October 2019 Kinigi attack which claimed the lives of 14 civilians. The outfit operates from Eastern DR Congo, supported and financed by Museveni’s government, according to UN reports.
