The High Court in Nyamirambo will on Friday, September 15 resume the hearing in the case of Dieudonné Ishimwe, popularly known as Prince Kid. Ishimwe, the chief executive of Rwanda Inspiration Back Up and the former organiser of the Miss Rwanda beauty pageant, has been entangled in a legal battle since 2022 when he was arrested and charged with soliciting sexual favours, harassment, and rape. In December last year, the intermediate court of Nyarugenge acquitted him due to insufficient evidence. However, the prosecution appealed.

The presiding judge explained that the adjournment was necessary to give the defence enough time to review and analyse a report from the Rwanda Forensic Laboratory concerning newly submitted audio evidence and its accompanying explanations.
