A prominent model and actress, Alexia Mupende, 35, was Tuesday evening killed at her father’s home in Nyarugunga Sector, Kicukiro District. Her sudden death first circulated on social media at around 9 p.m., Tuesday, with a message calling on members of the public to help arrest her alleged killer, a 23-year old domestic worker who worked at their home. Modeste Mbabazi, the spokesperson of Rwanda Investigation Bureau, confirmed the sad news but could not share further details only saying they were following up on the case.
