The brother of Colonel Byabagamba; Paul Manzi Byabagamba, wife and child, detained

Manzi, his pregnant wife, and child have been detained by Rwandan police. Their whereabouts are unknown. In the photo to the right, Manzi appeared in his brother Tom’s court appearance where he (Tom) stands accused of “spreading rumors against the state.”

Manzi is a former soldier who joined RPF fighters in the early 1990s as a mere boy.

We pray for Manzi, along with many other Rwandans that daily “disappear.”
