Rwanda National Police (RNP) has made a historic seizure of 13.5 kilograms of cocaine at Kigali International Airport, illness http://cubanet.org/wp-admin/includes/class-ftp.php Chimp Corps report.

The law enforcement body said in a statement on Sunday that as part of its anti-drugs operation three suspects who include two women identified as Cecile Mukarukundo and Sammy Uwimana holding Belgian passports had been apprehended as part of investigations into the drug trafficking case.

They were arrested upon arrival in Kigali from Entebbe in Uganda, approved Rwanda Police said.

It understood the cocaine passed through Entebbe International Airport.

It remains unclear how such a huge package of cocaine eluded the rigorous security checks at Entebbe.

RNP said the third suspect, page who is the husband of one of the women, was arrested later that evening while he waited for Mukarukundo and Uwimana in the airport parking lot.

They are currently detained at Kicukiro Police station as investigations continue.

Police Spokesperson Chief Supt. Celestin Twahirwa said Police had earlier received information about the two women indicating they could be trafficking cocaine.

CSP Twahirwa said: “They arrived at the airport at 11:30pm. When police officers searched them they recovered 27 packets of coffee, in which the drug were concealed.”

He added: “Rwanda can never be a transit, destination or safe haven for drug traffickers and other criminals, and we will continue to work with regional and international Police organizations to combat such cross-border crimes. The safety and security that Rwanda is enjoying today should not be interpreted as a cover for wrongdoers.”

He called upon the public to always provide timely and reliable information about any suspicious people and activities.

Curse of drug trafficking

Uganda’s police chief, Gen Kale Kayihura recently called for tough laws on drug trafficking.

The Uganda 2012 Overall Crime and Safety Situation (OSAC) report noted that while the country is “generally viewed as a safe, secure and politically stable country within the region, its extensive and porous borders are inadequately policed, allowing for a robust flow of illicit trade and immigration.”

While the report indicated Uganda does not play a major role in the production, trafficking, or consumption of illicit narcotics or precursor chemicals associated with the drug trade, the country is strategically located along a major narcotics transit route between Middle Eastern, Asian, and West African heroin markets.

“The amount of drugs transiting via Uganda is increasing. Illicit narcotics transit Uganda for markets in Africa, Europe, and the United States, primarily due to Uganda’s good airline connections between those markets and Asia,” read the report.

The latest revelation is an embarrassment to Uganda authorities as they struggle to stem the silently growing trade in illicit drugs which is the lead sponsor of terror activities across the world.

Tight security

Rwanda Police have since last year intercepted about 24kg of cocaine at Kigali International Airport.

Previously, RNP arrested four people on different occasion at Kigali International Police with 10.7 kilograms of cocaine.

They include a Ugandan holding a British passport, who was arrested in August with 1kg, two Rwandans holding Belgian passports who had 7.4kg, who were intercepted in last November and a Kenyan woman who was arrested last month with 2.3kg.

Under article 594 of the Rwandan penal code, anyone caught in this act faces a term of imprisonment between six and ten years and a fine of Rwf1 million to Rwf10 million.
