Rwanda President Paul Kagame has retired his former military intelligence officer Maj Gen Richard Rutatina.
This was announced Wednesday in a Cabinet retreat held at Urugwiro village.
Altogether, Kagame has so far retired about 800 senior army officers.
According to New Times Rwanda, Rutatina’s retirement was part of the cabinet resolutions reached on that day.
Cabinet also decided that Maj Issa Karamage be retired from Rwanda Defence Forces [RDF].
Kagame dismissed Rutatina as head of military intelligence, commonly known as “J2”, in February this year.
Rutatina previously worked as Kagame’s adviser on defence and security before being appointed as head of military intelligence in 2013, replacing DCG Dan Munyuza, who is the deputy inspector general of police in charge of operations.
