After spending more than one-year languishing in prison awaiting trial, eight FDU-Inkingi Party political prisoners who included the 1st Vice President of FDU-Inkingi, have been told  that they cannot appear in court yesterday January 8, 2019 due to an alleged outbreak of measles in all prisons in Rwanda.   A tentative date for hearing is set for February 12, 2019. We have reasons to suspect that this could be yet another delaying tactic to keep them in jail. One can hardly believe that measles, that is usually an illness of children and young people, would affect all prisons in the country and at the same time.
