Tuyisenge, who goes by the handle "NTAMA W’IMANA 2," was arrested on March 21 after making a tweet promoting defilement.
During his April 6 hearing, Tuyisenge was represented by his lawyer, Innocent Muramira.
The prosecution charged him with ’Publication of Pornographic Images through a Computer or a Computer System’ and requested a three-year imprisonment.
The prosecution stated that Tuyisenge had shared messages encouraging people to defile children, including a tweet on March 13 that read, "Girls under the age of 17 taste good."
The judge issued a three-year suspended sentence and a fine of Rwf1m to Tuyisenge. The sentence was suspended for a year due to Tuyisenge’s guilty plea, his status as a student, and it being his first offense.
