Former Rwanda Prime Minister Habumuremyi Jailed

Former prime minister Pierre Damien Habumuremyi will serve a three-year jail term and pay a fine after he was convicted of issuing bounced cheques. Habumuremyi, who is detained at Nyarugenge Prison in Mageragere, attended the ruling virtually. The former premier was arrested in July 2020, on charges of issuing bounced cheques and breach of trust. Habumuremyi had issued bounced cheques totalling to about U.S.$173,000 on behalf of his now-defunct Christian University of Rwanda.
