'Prostitute' Insult Puts South Africa, Rwanda Relations on Ice

The South African government has suspended the normalisation of relations with Rwanda following the publication of a now-deleted story by Rushyashya which insulted South African International Relations and Cooperation Minister Lindiwe Sisulu by calling her a "prostitute". She was also slammed on Twitter by Rwandan Deputy Foreign Minister Olivier Nduhungirehe who described her as a "convicted criminal" who is "leading a subversive movement".
