Arrest in Nyamwasa shooting suggests it was an inside job

By Andy Rice 21 June 2010

Police have arrested what The Times reports to be a long-time associate of Faustin Kayumba Nyamwasa, the former Rwandan general shot in Johannesburg on the weekend, for the attack. The suspect, the paper said, worked under Nyamwasa for years and that their families lived together in exile. Neither the arrest nor the identity of the alleged shooter has been confirmed, but the report will lend further strength to the Rwandan government's denial that it order a hit on Nyamwasa, as his wife insists.
