Eugène Gashugi and Freddy Mutanguha, respectively vice-president and secretary general of IBUKA, were arrested on April 16, according to the newspaper which quotes a source at the Prosecutor general's office.
Appearing before a Kigali court on Wednesday 28, they requested more time to find lawyers for their defence.
Three other senior IBUKA officials have already been arrested in connection with this alleged scam: Executive Secretary Benoît Kaboyi, Director of Programs Naphtal Ahishakiye and Director of Finance
Emmanuel Nsengiyumva. They are charged notably with "drawing up lists of non-existent beneficiaries and inflating the figures of survivors in some districts".
According to the prosecution, over 400 million Rwandan francs (about $666,000) are missing from the organization's coffers. The defendants have to prove how it was spent.
