German envoy recalled by own gov’t over “unacceptable behaviour” in Rwanda

The Minister of Foreign Affairs Dr Richard Sezibera has told The New Times that the Germany envoy to Rwanda was recalled by his own government after Kigali informed the latter about his unacceptable behaviour.

The Minister was reluctant to discuss details of the alleged unacceptable behaviour which eventually led to the recall of Dr. Peter Woeste, the Western European country’s top diplomat in Kigali, but he said that he left Rwanda on March 30.

“We informed his government of the unacceptable behaviour of the ambassador, gave them evidence of this behaviour and requested them to take appropriate action,

“They [Germany government] decided to recall him before the end of his term,” Sezibera said:

In October 2016, Woeste presented his credentials to President Paul Kagame, along with three other foreign envoys – Singapore, Finland and Portugal – appointed by their respective nations to Rwanda.

At the time, all the new envoys expressed interest in strengthening ties between their nations and Rwanda.
