Sam Bitangaro, the MP of Bufumbira south, was arrested on friday by the police in kisoro, for allegedly holding rallies without following the Ministry of Health directives to check on the spreed of COVID-19.
The rally attracted many people, failed to observe social distancing and some people not putting on masks.
This propelled Kisoro DPC Christopher Ruhunde, to direct Nyarusizi police post to swing in action and diffuse the rally.
Attempts to have Bitangaro arrested were in vain as he switched off his known phone number ,though he was later traced and arrested. NRM party warned it’s members to follow the government directives.
