Reports indicate that, on all occasions, he got away using a ticket of being a lawmaker with immunity. While speaking at Unity Club Gala Dinner last week, President Paul Kagame spoke about Mbonimana’s case saying that driving while drunk endangers the life of the driver and the public. The President also said that having immunity shouldn’t be a reason for one to commit an offense and also took on authorities on why they didn’t revoke his driver’s license. Mbonimana entered parliament on the Liberal Party (PL) ticket.
