Rwandese stepmother in a 5 year old Elisie Akeza murder case. A stepmother in Rwanda is alleged for having participated in the murder of a 5 year old girl and firstborn child to her husband’s and first girlfriend.
The Police in Rwanda have arrested two people in connection with the death of a child identified as Elisie Akeza Rutiyomba who apparently drowned in a water drum in Busanza cell, Kanombe sector of Kicukiro district.
The suspects include a domestic worker and a step mother to Akeza. It is exactly one week since the father picked her daughter from the biological mother on request to bond with his new family including the stepmother and their newly born baby who is three (3) months old.
According to our sources, when Akeza’s mother was pregnant, the boyfriend’s family discouraged him from getting married to her. She raised Akeza to the age she has lost her life.
Akeza’s father got engaged and married to Chantal who is the alleged murderer on 15th June, 2019.
It is said that Akeza’s father had earlier requested his newly wedded wife Chantal that he could give him permission so that he could bring his daughter to bond with them.
However, the housekeeper says Chantal has been mistreating Akeza since she was brought home.
She also revealed that on the 14th of January 2022 the day that Akeza died, Chantal had been sending her often and consecutively to the shop and on every return Chantal was standing in the door way of the store and she would be so furious each time she would be back in a blink of an eye. This prompted her to suspect that something wrong was going on.
She further explains that when Chantal retreated to the house to check on her baby who was crying, she walked closely to the store only to find that Akeza had drowned in a drum of water and she called for help from the neighborhood.
It is said that the drum had earlier been empty but Chantal filled it with with (20 liter) jerrycans of water to be able to end Akeza’s life and others to believe that she might have drowned by accidentally.

Proverbs 6:16-19 ESV
There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.
