Rwandan police shoot two people dead who disobeyed coronavirus lockdown orders

Rwanda as a country is not playing with Coronavirus. They’re doing all they can to prevent the virus from spreading.

As such, they have declared a lock down of the country and all citizens are ordered to stay indoors 24/7.

But two people defied the lockdown order and they were shot and killed by the police.

The two men in their twenties “attempted to tussle with officers,” Rwanda National spokesman John Bosco Kabera said by phone Wednesday, Bloomberg reports.

Rwanda began a two-week lockdown on March 22, restricting travel between towns and cities and asking people to stay indoors. Its measures are among the most stringent in Africa.

The East African nation has 40 confirmed -19 cases.
