The Cabinet Meeting of 8th November chaired by President Paul Kagame has approved a ministerial order sacking a total of 36 Rwanda Correctional Services (RCS) officers over absconding from duty.
Speaking to IGIHE, RCS spokesperson, CIP Hillary Sengabo said that all the dismissed officers had deserted service at different times between 2016 and 2017.
“The reason behind dismissing them was to deserting their jobs. When an officer deserts, the punishment is to be sacked unless there were more genuine reason behind,” he said.
The law says that they consider RCS officer to be disserted when they spend seven days without reporting to work and without informing their commandant.
Last year, RCS also had sacked 52 officers including two Assistants Inspector of Prison (AIP) over misconducts. src:Igihe
