Her name is UWAMUTARA Claire. She is Tutsi. She was married to Colonel Danny NDAHIRO of the RPF. She fled Rwanda after the assassination of her husband and her 9 year-old son, Magnifique NDAHIRO, on July 1, 2009.
In April 1994, UWAMUTARA Claire took refuge at St. Paul Parish in Kigali. She was evacuated by RPF soldiers and was later taken back to Mount Rebero. She served as a nurse and took care of RPF wounded soldiers. She became acquainted with Danny NDAHIRO who was then Lieutenant, commanding the Bravo Unit. They got married in December 1996.
The story of her husband’s murder and other crimes by RPF soldiers makes one shudder.
On July 1, 2009 at 4:00 am, a police vehicle with a plate tag A980R got in front of the couple’s residential home. Among those on board was among others an officer named SHAMAMBA Faustin. Frightened, the woman escapes through the back door and hid among the neighbors with her three children, leaving her disabled husband and 9 year-old son in the house.
A few minutes later the woman heard her son crying in agony. Faustin SHAMAMBA is a hired killer who does not digested NDAHIRO Danny because he opposed RPF plans aimed at eliminating Hutus.
According UWAMUTARA upon arrival in Rwanda, Paul Kagame has created a military group of professional killers called GACURABWENGE and instructed to remove unwanted people among the Hutu majority. The group is commanded by Captain Fred KATABARWA. Danny NDAHIRO and Lieutenant GAHIMA were approached to join the group whose mission was notably to eliminate Hutu intellectuals inside Rwanda and in refugee camps abroad.
The group was ordered to kill Faustin TWAGIRAMUNGU (former Prime Minister) and Pasteur BIZIMUNGU (former President) but Danny NDAHIRO objected. Danny NDAHIRO also received the mission to visit Kenya and assassinate Seth SENDAHONGA and Theoneste LIZINDE but refused. SENDASHONGA and LIZINDE were murdered respectively by KAJOLITE and Sergeant Thomas a.k.a MUNYANEZA LUKAMAYITI, currently employed at Rwanda’s Ministry of Defense.
A meeting of the GACURABWENGE Group was held at Novotel Hotel on June 4, 2004. The meeting was attended among others by President Kagame, Titus RUTAREMARA Rose KABUYE and Tony KURAMBA. UWAMUTARA had also been invited to the meeting as a nurse close to Kagame’s regime as a mission would be given.
Assigned to the hospital Kimironko, she was asked to inject poison or infectious agents to Hutu patients and their children or make them die from overdoses and cut their legs or arms of any Hutu slightly injured. She absolutely refused to comply. She was transferred to Kigali prison known as 1930. Again the idea was to contribute to the killings of prisoners. She refused and was accused by his fellow Tutsi TRIFONIA in the associations of genocide survivors. She was transferred to the Health Center of Kicukiro. Again, the GACURABWENGE group gave her the following directions: reduce the number of Hutu babies and ensure that in 100 cases admitted to the maternity, at least 30 mothers and 20 newborns are killed.
The GACURABWENGE group had established other targets including Pierre Celestin RWIGEMA then Prime Minister and a European named RICHARD, then employee at International Amnesty in Kampala, Uganda.
After the meeting at Novotel Hotel, Danny NDAHIRO, who had asked sensitive questions, was arrested. During his detention, he revealed to his wife that Paul Kagame personally invited him to ask him why he opposes the RPF killing plans. During this conversation they were joined by Police Commander, Ephraim RURANGIRWA. A delegation of the Associations of genocide survivors, IBUKA and of widows of the genocide AVEGA came in to convince Danny NDAHIRO to cooperate with the RPF killing plans but without success.
After his release for prison, Danny NDAHIRO was assigned to the Commission for Unity and Reconciliation and ordered to change his name to SEBERA Damascus. He was replaced in the group by a renowned killer by the name of RWAKA Simplice. Danny NDAHIRO was rearrested in 2007 after Colonel Patrick KAREGEYA failed his mission to assassinate Felicien KABUGA in Kenya because it was thought that Danny NDAHIRO had influenced him. Patrick KAREGEYA, currently in exile, had in the past successfully managed to kill a multitude of people on Kagame’s request.
Danny NDAHIRO was held in prison until March 2009 in the “G2-Prison” in Kimironko, a secret underground prison in the plot of a villa belonging to Dr. GAKUBA. His wife joined him in that prison with daily torture consisting in drops of burning plastic. Claire UWAMUTARA was released on the intervention of Colonel Charles KAYONGA but she had a broken arm. Dr. Alfred, a Hutu, who performed the arm surgery, was in turn put in prison. Due to repeated tortures, Danny NDAHIRO, became crippled and thus unable to escape. He was murdered in his house with his son on July 1, 2009.
Many other people have been killed because they opposed the killings of innocent Hutus. These include, but are not limited to, Major RUSAGARA who refused to endorse the plan to eliminate the population of Byumba.
The GACURABWENGE group of killers also includes Pio MUGABO, Major Rose KABUYE (current Chief of Protocol), James KABAREBE (current Chief of General Staff of the Rwandan Defense Forces), etc.
Recently, Claire UWAMUTARA fled Rwanda. The RPF death squads wanted to kill her. Even in her current exile, she still fears for her life.
