KIGALI (AFP): A Rwandan court on Friday sentenced popular musician Kizito Mihigo to 10 years in prison for conspiracy against the government of strongman President Paul Kagame. Mihigo was also found guilty of ‘forming a criminal group’ and ‘conspiracy to commit murder’, but judge Claire Bukuba threw out charges of complicity in a terrorist act. Mihigo, 35, who pleaded guilty to the charges, is a survivor of the 1994 genocide in Rwanda. Prosecutors said he was ‘in charge of mobilising the youth’ for the RNC as well as the FDLR, Rwandan Hutu rebels who include the perpetrators of the genocide in their ranks.
