A Rwandan businessman has been shot dead in Matola municipality, a few kilometres outside the Mozambican capital, Maputo.
Levocat Karemangingo was fatally shot about 50m from his residence in the Liberdade neighbourhood on Monday afternoon.
The crime was allegedly committed by gunmen on three vehicles who intercepted his car before they fired a hail of bullets at him.
The killers are so far not known, much less the reasons of the crime that shocked the neighbourhood and the Rwandan community in Mozambique.
The police were at the scene for forensic work and the body was taken to a provincial hospital.
Some Rwandans told reporters that the crime was persecution of citizens opposed to the current government and alleged that more people were being targeted.
The Rwandan community has asked the Mozambican government to provide more protection.
In 2019, another Rwandan, Louis Baziga, was shot dead in a similar style in a Maputo suburb after gunmen intercepted his car. He was a known supporter of the Rwandan government.
