Aimable Karasira, a YouTuber facing charges including denial of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi, inciting divisionism and illicit enrichment has refused to stand trial and requested enough time for preparations before returning to Nyarugenge Intermediary Court for trial in substance.

Karasira once served as a lecturer at the University of Rwanda. His trial in substance before Nyarugenge Intermediary Court was due on Monday 30th May 2022.

His trial has been postponed after refusing to stand trial. Karasira told the court that he is sick and has not yet received medicaments. Karasira said that he is suffering from diabetes, depression, cardiovascular disease and mental illness.

After hearing the accused, the court postponed the trial to 7th July 2022.

Karasira last appeared before in February. At the time, he requested adjournment of the trial because he wanted to be tried in-person.
