Breaking News

The son of Rwanda's first President, Dominique Mbonyumutwa, has told the BBC he is protesting against an order to exhume his father's remains.

The mayor of Muhanga district has given the family 60 days to decide where they want the former president re-buried.

He was buried in Gitarama town's sports stadium, which is being redeveloped.

The stadium, called Democracy Stadium, is where Rwanda's Hutu leaders declared that the Tutsi monarchy would be abolished.
