I was impressed when I read in yesterday’s issue of The New Times that a Member of Parliament, Alexandre Ashinzwuwera, was arrested for allegedly assaulting his 12 year old brother and seriously injuring him.
Whereas I am not surprised that the law caught up with this MP (I have known and seen for a fact that in Rwanda, the law catches up with anyone regardless of their rank or religion), I was disturbed by the fact that the offender this time round is an MP (a lawmaker) who should have known better.
Well, everything happens for a reason and may be this was another reminder that Rwanda does not tolerate any crime by ANYONE- whether committed against a child, woman, stranger, poor person or foreigner. Other countries should take a leaf from Kigali.
Long live the Nation that Rwanda is.
