Popular Rwandan singer and government critic dies in custody

A popular singer in Rwanda, jailed on charges of plotting to kill the country’s president but later pardoned, has been found dead in a police cell. Authorities are calling Kizito Mihigo’s death a suicide. In 2015, Mihigo was sentenced to 10 years in prison after he was found guilty of conspiring to assassinate Kagame. He was pardoned three years later.
