Exiled Lieutenant-General Faustin Kayumba Nyamwasa has alleged that Rwandan President Paul Kagame used an anti-corruption drive to set up his opponents. The African nation is due to hold its presidential polls in August. The exiled Rwandan general stressed that accountability loses its meaning if it “is going to be used as a political weapon,” Reuters reports. The nation’s ombudsman, Tito Rutaremara, refuted the accusations.
