Speaking to journalists, Pierre Nkurikiye presented Christa Kaneza as an instigator of the assassination crime. He identified the other accomplices as; Jean Paul Ndibanje, Emmanuel Niyongabo and André Minani alias Feredi.

“They came from outside entered the house of a certain Thierry Kubwimana, 29, to assassinate him, facilitated by his wife who, according to the police investigation, is the very instigator of the assassination of her husband ”, said Nkurikiye.

According to Nkurikiye, this woman first checked the occupants of the house; “The adult occupant was a maid, the woman had to lock her in her room to prevent her from giving the alert or providing help.”

He claims that Christa Kaneza opened all the doors to criminals into the bedroom and that she turned on all the lights when they are usually turned off at night.

Another element, continues Pierre Nkurikiye, “these are contradictions noted in the comments made by the two criminals and even by the woman. She says he was shot and died with bodily harm found. “For Pierre Nkurikiye, medical expertise shows that the victim struggled before being killed, hence the bodily injuries.

According to him, the wife of the late Thierry Kubwimana was located by technology in the Rohero area as her father and brother evacuated the victim to hospital. And to say that the police left with “the perpetrators” to the house of the victim for a reenactment.

Among these men, he insisted, no one knew the house, let alone his plan. He therefore said that she saw that the crime could not be committed without the complicity of someone inside the house.

“The only one to whom the police could direct their suspicions was this woman who was an adult person,” said the spokesperson of Interior ministry.

During the arrest, the suspect allegedly used a bottle to cause head injuries to the officer who was immediately taken to Kacyiru District Hospital for medical attention.

The suspect is a popular YouTuber who claims to be an activist, but the content she publishes on her channel has caused irrational reactions including, largely, serving as a mockery to genocide survivors and negating facts surrounding the Genocide against the Tutsi, according to observers.

Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy qualifies to request to serve his prison sentence from home, court said on Monday.

The 66-year-old Sarkozy was found guilty of corruption and abuse of office and was ultimately sentenced to a three-year prison sentence with two years suspended.

Taking into account the two years suspended, the sentence of one year jail means it is unlikely Sarkozy will physically go to prison, a punishment that in France usually applies to jail terms in excess of two years.

Sarkozy reamins free, since no arrest warrant has been issued.

Sarkozy was president of France from 2007 to 2012, would be entitled to request to be detained at home, but could be obliged to wear an electronic bracelet.

The prosecution had asked for a four-year prison term, with two years suspended. The crime of corruption of an official carries a maximum sentence of 10 years.

Only one other French president, Sarkozy’s political mentor Jacques Chirac, was put on trial after leaving office, but he was excused from having to attend his 2011 corruption trial because of ill health.

Sarkozy’s two co-defendants, the lawyer Thierry Herzog and former senior judge Gilbert Azibert, were also found guilty and given the same sentence as Sarkozy.

Nicolas Sarkozy will face another trial later this month along with 13 other people on charges related to the alleged illegal financing of his 2012 presidential campaign.
