South Africa: Suspect 'offered police $1m bribe'
Friday 08 October 2010
One of the men accused of attempting to assassinate an exiled Rwandan general offered a $1m bribe to police to release him, a South African court heard.
The court denied Pascal Kanyandekwe bail on the grounds that he may flee, after police officers claimed in sworn statements that he had offered them the bribe when they arrested him.
General Faustin Kayumba Nyamwasa was shot in the stomach as he and his wife entered their Johannesburg home in June. The general has been in South Africa since reportedly falling out with Rwandan President Paul Kagame.
