Diane Shima Rwigara, a critic of Rwandan President Paul Kagame barred from challenging him in elections in August, was charged with inciting insurrection against the state and forgery, the public prosecutor’s spokesman said.



Rwigara’s mother Adeline and her sister Anne were also been charged with incitement and “discrimination and sectarianism”, Faustin Nkusi told Reuters, without giving details. He said the cases were filed in court on Tuesday and awaited a trial date.
