He was sentenced to 10 years in prison for formation of a criminal gang, conspiracy to murder, and conspiracy against the established government and the president.

Mihigo was granted a presidential pardon by Kagame in 2018 but was was rearrested last week when crossing the border into Burundi.

Authorities explained that this was a breach of the conditions of his pardon.

“He had been in a police cell for three days as police investigated why he was crossing the border illegally and cases of bribery”, Police spokesperson Eric Kabera said in the statement.
