A Rwandan minister who pushed a female security guard to the ground has resigned from office.

Evode Uwizeyimana who was in charge of legal affairs resigned days after news broke of him assaulting a female security officer.

Mr Uwizeyimana apologised and expressed deep regret at what happened before his recent resignation.

“It should not have happened to me as a leader and public official. I already apologised to the ISCO [Intersec Security Company] staff and I now do so apologise publicly and to the public as well.”
