Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza, chair person of Rwanda's opposition coalition, FDU-Inkingi is spending her 236th day in Kigali's Central prison, and the eleventh (11) consecutive week in inhumane isolation, which experts and party members have called 'some kind of torture'. She is denied visits from members of her political party. On Friday June 3, 2011, visitors attempting to visit her at the maximum prison were ordered manu militari by Nyarugenge District police chief Mr Mutezintare to vacate the prison premises.
Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza's trial which has been postponed three times already is now scheduled to begin on June 20, 2011. AfrobeatRadio's Wuyi Jacobs speaks to FDU-Ikingi's treasurer Ms. Alice Muhirwa in Rwanda's capital, Kigali, about the upcoming trial and the likelyhood of a fair and independent trial for Victoire Ingabire. The interview was broadcast on AfrobeatRadio on WBAI 99.5 FM on Saturday June 4, 2011.
