Some Rwandan soldiers enforcing a nationwide lockdown in the country have been apprehended after they were accused of raping women in the capital, Kigali.

The five soldiers were arrested following a complaint by some residents of a slum in Rwanda’s capital, Kigali.

According to a report by the BBC, some residents of Nyarutarama, the said slum in Kigali have also been telling the military prosecution office that the soldiers also beat up male residents and steal from them after raping the women.

One victim of the rape told journalists that on 26 March an armed soldier forced his way into her home and beat up her husband when she tried to intervene the soldier raped her.

Rwandan President, Paul Kagame has enforced a nationwide lockdown in the country’s bid to halt the spread of coronavirus in the country.

In order to enforce the lockdown, armed personnel of police and military have been deployed nationwide but residents complain of continuous excesses and brutalities such as rape, theft and physical abuse.

Two men, according to the BBC, were shot dead after they were caught walking outside but the police explained the deceased men tried to attack them.

The government in Rwanda has extended rigid lockdown restrictions imposed last month to 19 April.
