Jean Pierre Celestin Habiyaremye who has been serving as a member of Rwanda’s lower chamber of parliament has resigned citing personal reasons.

Last week, another parliamentarian identified as Gamariel Mbonimana resigned following reports that he was caught driving while drunk at different times.

Habiyaremye resigns after a short video showing him in heated argument with Traffic Police officers on duty went viral on social media.

He has told IGIHE that the video was taken in March 2021 noting that his resignation has nothing to do with the video.

“I would have resigned that time if it was connected to the same case. It has been more than one year and nine months since that happened. So, I have resigned for personal reasons. There are instances when one makes self-evaluation and find it necessary to resign,” said Habiyaremye.

The parliamentarian is from Rwanda’s ruling party, RPF Inkotanyi.
