The Technical Director of Rwanda Football Federation (FERWAFA), Hussein Habimana, is facing rape charges, and awaits a jail sentence of between five and seven years if convicted by the Courts of Law.
Rwanda Investigative Bureau (RIB) have confirmed this development to local media and said that it is nearly a month since Habimana was arrested and detained.
“Hussein Habimana was arrested and detained, and investigations are underway on charges of rape,” said Marie Michelle Umuhoza, Spokesperson at RIB.
“The file of the suspect is already in the country’s prosecution,” added Umuhoza.
Habimana who is accused of raping a Miss Rwanda 2020 contestant will be arraigned before the Courts of Law as soon as the ongoing investigations are completed.
It is reportedly said that Habimana committed the office during clandestine sessions of hoaxing the MISS Rwanda beauty queen that she trusts him in conjuring up victory in the much contested title through his massive influence.
Habimana shot to Rwanda’s social limelight through his excellent performance in football, and since then he boasts of a high social profile and a big name in the football world.
Habimana and Shimwa Guelda, MISS Heritage 2017 tied a knot in 2019, and treated their guests to a flamboyant and posh reception at the Kigali Convention Centre.
