Former justice minister and attorney general Tharcisse Karugarama and the former minister of cabinet affairs Protais Musoni were dropped in a surprise mini-Cabinet reshuffle.
Political observers say the dropping of the two senior politicians could have been a result of divisions within Rwanda’s ruling party over the raging debate on whether President Paul Kagame should be given a chance to stand for the presidency in 2017.
