Police are closing in on leaders of a Kigali-based racket of human traffickers whose activities threaten to turn the country into a source of girls and young women sold into sex slavery in neighbouring countries and the Middle East.

Details of this racket and names of the ring-leaders emerged last week after police interviewed six young women recently rescued from sex-slavery in neighbouring Uganda.

Security agencies have categorised as “very serious crime” the problem of human trafficking in the region.

Police say they are in possession of the names of the perpetrators whose arrest will be carried out any time this week. “We already have some names and will possibly have some arrested [this week]. We plan to close investigations into that case by next week (read this week),” Rwanda National Police (RNP) spokesman Theos Badege told the Sunday Times in an exclusive interview.
