Johannesburg, June 20 (IANS) A former Rwandan ambassador to India has been shot and wounded here, a media report said.
Faustin Kayumba Nyamwasa, also a former chief of the Rwandan army, was rushed to a hospital after the attack Saturday, Xinhua reported.
Nyamwasa fled to South Africa earlier this year after Rwandan authorities accused him of involvement in a bomb attack in the country.

Nyamwasa reportedly fled to South Africa after resigning as Rwanda’s ambassador to India.
