UTC Founder Ayabatwa: Rwanda Government which Illegally Seized UTC in 2013 Now Condemns The Company For Defaulting On TaxesFor David Himbara, senior adviser to UTC founder Tribert Rujugiro Ayabatwa, the latest development defeats logic. "The government expropriated UTC in 2013 claiming it was abandoned because its main shareholder resided outside Rwanda. This was of course a bizarre and illegal act. Owners of almost all large Rwanda-based companies live outside the country. For government to now denounce UTC as tax dodger is extraordinary. It is like a CEO declaring himself incompetent."
