Security Agents: Rwandan and Gatsinzi

security agents: They were accusing me of being a Rwandan spy and a killer, according to The Chronicle Herald. That I was in Uganda to hunt down Rwandan refugees living in Uganda to harm them, Gatsinzi told The Associated Press, denying the accusations. Gatsinzi claims he was arrested by security agents after visiting his son at a Ugandan university in December and that 12 days of being hooded and beaten left him in a wheelchair for days after his release. He said he saw another Rwandan who had been tortured and was really in a bad shape. People like Gatsinzi claim they are caught in the middle, suspected by one country or the other.
