Fred Gisa Rwigema (10 April 1957 – 2 October 1990), born Emmanuel Gisa (his name sometimes erroneously spelled as Rwigyema[A]), was a founding member of and leader of the Rwandan Patriotic Front, an anti-Hutu Power guerrilla group that fought in the Rwandan Civil War.[1]

Rwigema was born in Gitarama, in the south of Rwanda. Considered a Tutsi, in 1960 he and his family fled to Uganda and settled in a refugee camp in Nshungerezi, Ankole following the so-called Hutu Revolution of 1959 and the ouster of King Kigeri V.
