Eight people were on Wednesday remanded to Kisoro Central Prison over their alleged participation in the murder of the Kisoro based lawyer Isaac Sendegeya.

The Kisoro grade one magistrate Mr Raphael Vueni charged the eight accused persons of murder and remanded them until September 4 for further hearing of their case.

The prosecution told court that on July 21, the accused persons played different roles in the murder of Sendegeya. He was shot dead at around 2AM at his residence in Mukingo village, Nyakinama Sub County in Kisoro District as he was returning from Kisoro town.

The suspects include DRC nationals and M23 ex-combatants Charles Munyaneza, 33, alias Seruhasha and Claude Ndagizimana, 42, and Steven Mfitundinda, 29, alias Season, a Boda-boda rider in Bunagana Town Board in Kisoro District.
