Rwandan President Paul Kagame has dismissed over 100 army senior commanders and terminated the contracts of 112 others, in a major overhaul of the army.
The army in a statement announced the decision Wednesday adding that 14 other top commanders including Major General Aloys Muganga and Brigadier General Francis Mutiganda have been also fired.
The army did not provide reasons for the decisions. However, they came following other decisions by the Rwandan longtime leader dismissing several other commanders in the army and the intelligence.
Law n° 38/2015 of July 30, 2015 on the status of members of the Rwandese army, argues that a member of the Rwandan armed forces may be dismissed “for serious misconduct”, while specifying that “serious misconduct leading to dismissal must be approved by the competent authority”, at its article 7.
In addition, a presidential decree Nº 044/01 of 14/02/2020 at its article 105 indicates that the Minister, when he deems it necessary, terminates “the service contract concluded with a member of the armed forces”.
