Three people are detained at Nyamata Police station in Bugesera district in connection with conning car owners and attempting to bribe Police officers to acquire various services illegally.

The suspects are identified as Marc Ndagijimana, Jean Pierre Sindikubwayo and John Ngirababyeyi.

Ndagijimana,38 and Sindikubwabo, who hails from Rusizi and Muhanga districts respectively were arrested at the motor vehicle inspection centre in Remera, Gasabo district recently for allegedly trying to con vehicle owners promising them quick services at the centre.

Ngirababyeyi, a resident of Gahanga in Kicukiro district, on the other hand, was arrested on May 2 after he tried to bribe a Police officer with Rwf2, 000.

Ngirababyeyi had been stopped over breaching traffic rules, which prompted him to pull the illegal move.

Ndagijimana told journalists that he has been into this business for a year now adding that he would solicit Rwf20, 000 per vehicle.

“I used to tell those I cheated that the money was for Police officers who help me to acquire the services, which is not true. I tarnished the image of the force, but I beg to be pardoned,” Ndagijimana explained.

Sindikubwayo, on the other had, explained that he used to charge Rwf15000 for each vehicle.

He appealed to car owners not to fall prey of crooks, instead take their vehicles for mechanical inspection themselves.

“It’s impossible to bribe Police officers at the mechanical centre and whoever tells them that it’s possible will be trying to con the,” Sindikubwabo said.

The Director for Rwanda National Police Media Centre, Chief Inspector of Police (CIP), Emmanuel Kabanda appealed to car owners to avoid such illegal shortcuts and warned of “severe consequences” to anyone that will be caught.

“Acquiring Motor vehicle inspection services is nowadays easier and quick and car owners shouldn’t be cheated” CIP Kabanda said.

The Remera MIC has the capacity to inspect up to 350 vehicles daily while the mobile lane inspects about 80 vehicles per day.

“Rwanda National Police will not tolerate any sort of corruption. Whoever will be caught, be it a Police officer or anyone else, will be charged accordingly,” he warned.
