Crocodile kills Rwandan man who breached coronavirus lockdown


A man in Rwanda violated lock-down orders amid the coronavirus outbreak to go fishing; but was killed; and was also eaten by a crocodile, according to a report.

“He had broken the stay-home rule; he’s among very few people here who are not cooperating with the lockdown to stop the virus,” Alice Kayitesi, mayor of the southern Kamonyi district, told the BBC.

The unidentified man was attacked by the croc on Wednesday in the Nyabarongo river, the news outlet reported.

The African country of some 12 million people has confirmed 40 cases of COVID-19; the highest in the region, though no deaths have been reported.
