Hero of Hotel Rwanda, Paul Rusesabagina sentenced to 25years in prison for terrorism.
The man behind all time Hollywood famous movie, Hotel Rwanda is in a big trouble. He has been sentenced 25year imprisonment for masterminding a terrorist attack and supporting a terrorist organization.
Speaking to BBC, Daughter of Paul Resesabagina, Carine Kanimba said she’s not surprised her father has been put in jail. She told BBC its no news this was going to happen anyway because his father has been a critic of Paul Kagame’s administration for years. According to her, this is just witch hunt and nothing else. Carine believe her daddy is of clean hands and has nothing to do with terrorism. “There has been violations after violations of this trail. My father is still an illegally detained man” she said.
Paul inspired many across Africa and the world at large for his role in popular movie, Hotel Rwanda. Many have said his ruling has been unfair but Rwanda’s government said ‘no country tolerates terrorists’. The government said they did what was necessary so Mr Rusesabagina could face ‘justice in Rwanda’
“No country tolerates terrorists. We did what we had to do so that he could face justice in Rwanda”. Rwanda government respond to critics of Paul’s imprisonment.
Paul who is now 67years old is credited with serving hundreds of lives during Rwanda’s 1994 genocide that killed thousands of Rwandans, a genocide mainly instigated through tribal lines.
