The Military Tribunal has sworn-in new heads, Lt Col Deo Rusizana and Capt Gerald Ntaganira, as vice-president and judge at the military tribunal, respectively.

The swearing in, on Thursday, was presided over by Prime Minister Anastase Murekezi.

 

The two tribunal leaders committed to serve the country, protect the rights of people, and work in the general interest of the people of Rwanda.

 

The two were appointed last month by a Cabinet meeting.

 

The swearing in was witnessed by Defence minister Gen James Kabarebe, RDF Chief of Defence Staff Gen Patrick Nyamvumba, Maj Gen Andrew Kagame, the president of the Military Tribunal, Brig Gen John Bagabo, the president of Military High Court, among others.

Murekezi advised the officers sworn in to be characterised by integrity, discipline and accountability as well as working hard and be exemplary to others.

The premier told them not to deceive Rwandans who entrusted them with such responsibilities.

“Your commitment should bear fruit for all to see. You should strive to promote the interests of the public that we all serve. Your work requires high level of integrity, accountability and hardworking to ensure speedy delivery of justice,” he said.

Murekezi also challenged the two leaders to embrace technology, saying this makes work easier and saves time.

“Rwanda Defence Force is known for its high-level of discipline, you should uphold this virtue; deliver better services so that your work can contribute to justice,” Murekezi said.

Rusizana, the vice president of the Military Tribunal, said he will use his experience and be conscious to deliver significant contribution to the Judiciary.
