Rwanda Defence Force (RDF) Military Prosecution Department (MPD) has started an investigation in the alleged defilement case involving one Rwanda’s musician soldier- Sergeant Major Kabera Robert a.k.a “Sergeant Robert”.
The announcement made this Monday suggests that Sergeant Robert allegedly committed the crime on a female minor in his family.
“The crime was allegedly committed on 21 November 2020 in Ndera Sector, Gasabo district” the Ministry of Defence (MoD) said in a press statement.
RDF also used the opportunity to assure the general public that justice will take its course and strongly condemns any violation of Rwandan law, or RDF ethics and values by its personnel.
“Efforts to trace the fugitive are underway,” MoD said.
Sergeant Robert stands possibilities if found guilty, of serving a 20 to 25 year jail sentence and if the alleged sexual abuse resulted to an infection of a sexually transmitted disease, the soldier-singer could spend the rest of his life behind bars.
