JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Rwanda's Foreign Minister says the government has expelled six South African diplomats.
She said on Twitter that the expulsions were in "reciprocity & concern at SA harboring of dissidents responsible for terrorist attacks in Rwanda."
A spokesman for South Africa's Department of International Relations and Cooperation, Clayson Monyela, declined Saturday to discuss the expulsions.
Former Rwandan army chief of staff Gen. Faustin Kayumba Nyamwasa fell out with Rwanda's government in 2010 and fled to South Africa where he was granted political asylum. Nyamwasa has survived at least two attempts on his life since 2010.
Nyamwasa's friend and former colleague, ex-Rwandan spy chief Col. Patrick Karegeya, who was also exiled in South Africa, was found strangled to death in a plush Johannesburg luxury hotel on Dec. 31, 2013.
