Kigali – Rwandan police arrested the former presidential candidate Shima Rwigara along side with her sister and mother on suspicion on evasion and forgery.



“They are accused of tax evasion and secondly Diane Rwigara is accused of using fake documents while she was gathering signatures for (her) presidential candidacy,” police spokesman Theos Badege told reporters.

Electoral authorities barred Rwigara from standing in August’s presidential vote, saying she had not submitted enough supporters’ signatures and some of the names she did sent in belonged to dead people – allegations she denied.
