Rwandan Prime Minister. He served as the 6th Prime Minister of Rwanda, serving from 19 July 1994 until 28 August 1995. He was the first Rwandan prime minister appointed following the Rwandan Genocide and the capture of the capitol city of Kigali by the Rwandan Patriotic Front. His tenure was dominated by the issue of human rights abuses committed by the RDF. Due to tensions within the administration coming to a head following his call for an "extraordinary council of ministers on security matters," he chose to resign and was placed under house arrest. He then went into exile in Brussels, Belgium, where he helped to establish the Democratic Forces for Resistance, a Rwandan opposition party in exile.
