Today at around 7:50pm, a Molotov cocktail was hurled inside the residence of the jailed FDU-Inkingi chairperson, Ms. Victoire INGABIRE, in Kigali, by unknown assailants. None was injured in the night attack.

The police was immediately informed. First the Gasabo district DPC visited the scene and ordered an overnight police patrol. Later on other police officers came, to find out what happened. After a cosmetic fact finding exercise, one of the officers ironically suggested that the cocktail might have been thrown by the house residents, in order to draw the attention of the media.

According to the watchman, a few minutes before the attack a suspect scouted first the area around the compound and was spotted glimpsing a sight over the compound. A female local journalist who interviewed the watchman got into a short argument with another police officer who wanted to smooth and preview her report before the broadcast.

The leadership of FDU-Inkingi condemns this coward attack and calls for a thorough investigation, in order to bring to book the culprits. Every government is duty - bound to ensure security for its citizens, irrespective of their political orientation.
