Our correspondent in Kigali, Rwanda tells us that Tuesday, July29, 2014, a Rwandan student tried to set himself on fire near the roundabout in the Rwandan capital. Interventions to rescue him were such fast that the victim could be saved in extremis. The police were on the scene and confiscated the pictures taken by journalists. 

It also led the student, severely burned, to the Hospital Centre of Kigali. Visitors from all sides rushed to visit the sick and to inquire about the situation. Rwandan security services, which wanted nothing to filter out about the reasons for this immolation, moved the sick away from that Centre.He is currently hospitalized in the police hospital in Kacyiru.

All these measures were taken by the security services following apparently the fact that the student would have written a letter in which he justifies his action to end despair that many Rwandans like him experience, injustice in all areas of national life, famine ravaging villages without the authorities being moved beyond measure ...

This sacrifice is not the first in Rwanda. Sadiki Mutabazi, a young Rwandan only aged 18, set himself on fire Rubavu (Gisenyi) in May 2012.
