He told The New Times that, “In March 2021, when there was a Covid-19 curfew that was starting at 9 pm, I violated it and ended up having an altercation with security organs although we talked things through and sorted them out.” That followed the resignation of Gamiel Mbonimana who was also an MP representing the Liberal Party on November 14.
