On 20 July, the Kenyan press published reports that Rwandan fugitive Felicien Kabuga was hiding out in the Rift Valley, Kenya. The Star reported that a team of intelligence officers from the United States and Rwanda responded to information claiming that a man resembling Kabuga arrived at a hospital in Eldoret for treatment on 15 July. The Kenyan newspaper states: “[t]he staff at the hospital were not aware that the building had been surrounded by the team who were hoping to grab Kabuga. However the trap failed and reports indicated that the man may have been taken to a different hospital.”
The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda issued a warrant for Kabuga’s arrest in 1998. Kabuga is an alleged financier of the Rwandan genocide. He is accused of using the radio station Radio Milles Collines to broadcast instructions encouraging the murder of Tutsis.
