The Democratic Green Party of Rwanda strongly condemns both the deaths threats and armed attack against Mrs.Ingabire Marie Immaculet the Transparency International Rwanda Chief.

Transparency International Rwanda under Mrs.Ingabire Immaculet has always stood against corruption but such death threats and the armed attack as witnessed yesterday at her offices in Kigali, are aimed at silencing both her and the organisation, a thing that cannot be tolerated in a country that has a zero-tolerance on corruption.

The Democratic Green Party of Rwanda is very concerned, with this attack and the phone call she received wondering whether she was still alive, as some had speculated that she had been shot dead in Rubavu district.

This happens as investigations into the murder of a Transparency International staff, Gustave Makonene, last year in Rubavu have not yet produced any tangible results.

The Democratic Green Party of Rwanda calls upon the Rwandan National Police to expedite these investigations and bring the culprits of these heinous crimes to justice.
