SA issues arrest warrants for suspects in Rwanda spy death

botchway September 11, 2019


South African authorities have issued arrest warrants for two of the four alleged killers of a Rwandan former spy chief.

Patrick Karegeya, 53, was found strangled in a luxury hotel room in Johannesburg in 2014.

A BBC report found that, at the time of his death, Mr Karegeya had been advising South African and Tanzanian intelligence as they prepared to send troops to the Democratic Republic of Congo to battle the Rwandan-backed rebel group M23.

Mr Karegeya’s family’s lawyer also told AFP that South Africa’s National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) is applying for the extradition of two other suspects of Rwandan descent.
