The Democratic Green Party of Rwanda (DGPR) requests all national security organs to help in finding the whereabouts of its Organizing Secretary Mr.Jean Damascene MUNYESHYAKA, who has been missing since Friday last week (27th June 2014).

Mr.Munyeshyaka Jean Damascene was called on phone by an unknown person around 15:00 hrs on Friday in Nyamata town, Bugesera district. He felt concerned and left that number with a party member though, two hours later that number was switched off and all his phones also went off, since then he has never been seen in public again.

This happened after he had circulated party letters to the district, sector, cell and village level of the intended plans of the party to visit and take some gifts to one village of the genocide survivors in Bugesera district, an activity that was planned for today (2/7/2014) but has been cancelled.

Party leaders and his wife reported the matter to Bugesera Police Station on Monday 30th June 2014 and also met with the District Police Commander.

The Democratic Green Party of Rwanda is very concerned with this disappearance due to the fact that on 13th July 2010, its former Vice President, Andre Kagwa Rwisereka went missing and  found murdered the next day, in the ex-Butare province ( Huye).

MUNYESHYAKA Jean Damascene, was in the private sector but before then he had been a member of Rwanda Defence Forces (RPA/RDF) for ten years and was demobilized.

The Democratic Green Party of Rwanda wishes to request all security organs to use all efforts and help in finding Mr.Munyeshyaka Jean Damascene.
