Former Rwanda Prime Minister Pierre Damien Habumuremyi has been arrested.

Dr Habumuremyi, who served as Prime Minister from 2011 to 2014, was arrested on Friday. He previously served as Minister of Education from May 2011 to October 2011.

Rwanda Investigation Bureau (RIB) confirmed that Dr Habumuremyi was arrested alongside Prof Egide Karuranga, President of Kibungo University.

It is not immediately clear why the duo was arrested and RIB refused to offer details, saying investigations are still underway.

There had been media reports outside Rwanda that police were investigating the former prime minister and his family for possible links to the Rwandan rebel group FDLR, based in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.

He has written a book The Political integration in Rwanda after the 1994 genocide: Utopia or Reality, which was published by the Palotti Press, Kigali, in 2008.
