The family of late King Kigeli V Ndahindurwa represented by pastor Ezra Mpyisi has said in a press briefing that they couldn’t allow the king burial in another cemetery other than the graveyard where his elder brother was buried.
The family has therefore decided he will be buried on 15th January 2017 in the family graveyard where his elder brother King Mutara III Rudahigwa was buried in Mwima of Nyanza.
All ceremonies of bidding the last farewell will be held at the palace of King Rudahigwa.
Funeral ceremonies are open to all Rwandans willing to attend. Official mourning started on 10th January 2017.
