Rwanda National Police arrest one in Ngoma school robbery

One person has been arrested in Ngoma District in connection with theft at Kabare I Primary School where a server and 290 laptop memory cards were stolen on Thursday night.
Both the server and the memory cards were given to the school by Rwanda Education Board (REB) in the ‘One Laptop per Child’ programme.
The server was meant to connect the laptops.
The suspect is currently detained at Kibungo Police Station.
District Police Commander, Superintendent Victor Rubamba, said the criminal act “undermines the government’s programme of promoting ICT” and “One Laptop per Child” in particular.
“These pupils are our children, sisters, brothers. We should instead be giving them the best but not to take what they have,” he added.
He called upon residents to tighten night patrols and ‘Neighbourhood Watch’ to counter such wrongdoers.
The school head teacher, Suzan Mushimiyimana, said thieves broke the door where the server and the memory stickers were kept.
Superintendent Rubamba said investigations are still undergoing to unearth all those that were involved in the school burglary.
