Rwanda (Paul Rusesabagina) – News Extra

NEWS EXTRA - by RadioNow / Mar. 4th, 2021

A court sitting in Kigali has ruled that Paul Rusesabagina’s trial can take place both in Rwanda & Belgium, but insists that there is no justification for the trial to be moved from Rwanda to Belgium, as Paul has requested.

Mr Rusesabagina is on trial for 9 counts, bordering on terrorism and murder. This is a far cry from 2005, when he was awarded the presidential medal of freedom by former US president, George W. Bush, in recognition of his heroic role during the Rwandan genocide.

On this episode of News Extra, we examine how Paul Rusesabagina went from being celebrated globally and being included by Rwanda’s president, Paul Kagame, to being held prisoner in a country he ran away from in 1996.

This segment originally aired on Radio Now 95,3 FM Lagos on the 1st of March, 2021.
