Amb. Michael Ryan, the Ambassador of European Union Delegation to Rwanda, twits on Monday, the demolition of Top Tower Hotel complex leaves one dead while the EU residential house’s wall was also destroyed. Kigali city, Police and Minister of justice/attorney general reacted against the information.
According to Ryan, the demolition caused more damages at the EU residential house, which is located side by side with the demolished complex.
“End of Top Tower, neighboring EU Residence Kigali, an insanely dangerous demolition, destroyed our wall, one worker killed, house intact,” reads Ryan’s statement saying that the Delegation’s residential house wall was ‘already destroyed”, and he added he remembers such things in Damascus/Syria.
Things seems to be getting even worse as the demolition site’s worker fell dead victim of the demolished complex after he was hit by the neighboring complex when it went down.
However, Police in Kigali qualifies the information as a lie. Talking to Igihe.com, SP Emmanuel Hitayezu, the spokesperson of Rwanda Nation Police in Kigali city said, “I’ve asked testimonies, but the information is wrong, I don’t know where they got it from, and no complain was made. At least Amb. Ryan would provide full identity of the killed; then we make a follow up”.
Moreover, one worker said denies the source but argues that Amb. Ryan has been complaining last Thursday, saying that he will bring lawyers, “he was feeling uncomfortable with the demolition”, said the worker on the field.
Johnston Busingye, Rwandan minister of justice also disqualified the message on Twitter, as “no one was killed there”.
The demolition activities of the Kimihurura-based complex, which sits on Plots 900 and 901, have started two weeks ago after City of Kigali authorities closed the facility in June last year over standards concerns to make way for the development activities in line with the Kigali City Master Plan. St Joseph Engineering Company is the one to perform this activity.
