Rwandan journalist killed in Uganda

The editor of the Inyenyeri News, Charles Ingabire was killed in a bar in Kampala on Wednesday 30 of November. The police reported that he was drinking in a bar near Makerere University when he was shot dead. Mr Ingabire was living in exile in Uganda, after he had to escape from Rwanda in 2007 because of political persecution. He was particularly critical against the Rwandan President Paul Kagame, and he accused his government agents to threaten his life. The Rwandan authorities deny any involvement in the murder, accusing the journalist to be a criminal in reality. However, several press freedom watchdogs have called Uganda to conduct transparent and accurate investigations in the case
