The commander of the police of interior security in Kayokwe commune tortures in total impunity.
In the evening of February 23, 2007 around 9 pm, lieutenant Dismas Nzeyimana, the commander of the police station of interior security (PSI) at the town centre of Kayokwe commune, Mwaro province, helped by ten of his policemen, among whom his body guards, tortured two people. The first victim is a tradesman called Bizimana Jean Bosco. Lieutenant Nzeyimana was going to arrest him when Nzisabira Alexis, a teacher and member of Iteka League, who was around told him that it was not fair to arrest people at that late hour. He made him understand that it was not good either to pull down people.
The police officer became angry and let the first victim and started to torture Alexis. He tore his shirt tied his arms and then started to beat him. Blows on the belly, on the head ... A Brother of the convent of Kayokwe, noting that the policemen were careless to his advice, went to report what was happening to the Administrator who then came. It is at midnight that the Administrator arrived and the life of this person was saved.
Lieutenant, Nzeyimana Dismas is responsible for many other cases of violation of human rights made against the civil population of Kayokwe. He illegally arrests people as it is the case of the arrest of a judge to the court of residence of the commune of Kayokwe, Zirabisiga Salvator. A police officer does not arrest a judge who is not disturbing security. The judge was put in the dungeon after having been tortured.
Other people underwent the same fate as Zirabisiga Salvator. Ngendakumana Sylvestre, a driver at the hospital of Kibumbu and Nizigiyimana Aloïs, a technician of laboratory at the hospital of Kibumbu were both beaten and then detained in the communal dungeon.
Sakubu Bonaventure, teaching at the primary school of Kibumbu, was struck by the same police officer at Segetero. Nyabuhoro Jean Claude who works in the Provincial Department of Teaching in Mwaro was threatened then chased out of a bar without any reason. The list is not exhaustive, because other people are ill-treated by this policeman.
The provincial administrative authorities and the police authorities of Lieutenant Nzeyimana Dismas know what is going on but nothing has been done up to now to stop it. Some of the victims have reported it to the prosecutor and hope they will be rehabilitated in their rights.
