On Tuesday, January 14th, 2020, Kamariza Olive, the victim, and wife of Ndabereye wrote a message on her Twitter account showing a picture of herself after Ndabereye violently beat her injuring a large part of her scalp.
She also mentioned several other instances where her husband abused her despite continuous mediation where both her husband’s family and hers tried to mend their relationship. She tagged President Paul Kagame, Rwanda National Police, Rwanda Investigation Bureau (RIB) and several media houses in Rwanda pleading for help and protection from her husband.
Ndabereye was scheduled to appear in court today at 2:30 PM to negotiate potential release while his case is being investigated.
The trial of Ndabereye will be open. Open trials educate the public about the criminal justice system, give legitimacy to it, and have the effect of enabling the public to see justice done.
Gatabazi Jean Marie Vianney, Northern Province Governor replied to her that his trial had been postponed and postponed to January 29th, 2020 at Stade Ubworoherane in Musanze district.
“We are assuring you that with the collaboration of Rwanda National Police, you and your children are safe and justice will be served. Your husband’s trial which was scheduled today has been postponed to January 29th, 2020 at Stade Ubworoherane.”
