Alexia Uwera Mupende, a Rwandan model and actress, is said to have been killed by a houseboy.
Uwera, 35, was killed on Tuesday evening at her father’s home in Nyarugunga Sector, Kicukiro District.
According to sources, a houseboy only identified as Antoine Niyireba committed the act.
He has been arrested by Rwanda police. Details of his arrest are still scanty.
As we gathered, Antoine allegedly tried to rape Uwera. When she refused, he stabbed her, leading to her death.
Uwera was the General Manager of Waka Fitness, a popular fitness centre in Kigali.
The source says she had just resigned her position as the general manager.
She was part of the Mashirika Performing Arts Group and part of the entourage that recently travelled to India and Sri Lanka for performances.
Uwera also once worked with Cynthia Munwagari, the designer of CyMun Collection at the Serena Hotel and girlfriend to Mathew Kanyamunyu currently on trial for murder.
