The military prosecution has requested for life imprisonment for PTE Jean Pierre Nshimyumukiza and PTE Claude Ishimwe accused of shooting-dead Gikondo man who was identified as Aime Yvan Ntivuguruzwa.

The two soldiers are accused of killing Ntivuguruzwa on 9th May during a night patrol at Gikondo SGM, Kicukiro District.

In a military court that that Friday, prosecution requested that both soldiers should be given life imprisonment as they committed a premeditated murder.

Prosecution says that they deserve the punishment because they shot without the order from their commandant.

In defense, however, both soldiers said that the court should set them free because they shot a man who wanted to take their gun by force.
The ruling will be read on 6th October, 2017.
