The trial of the man who inspired the Hollywood film “Hotel Rwanda” concludes this week in Kigali. Paul Rusesabagina has been on trial charged with crimes related to terrorism, arson, kidnap and murder. The charges relate to rebel attacks that occurred in southern Rwanda in which nine people were killed. Prosecutors are seeking a life sentence, but Mr Rusesabagina has continued to boycott his trail calling it biased. In the next edition of Africa Daily Alan Kasujja looks at the background to this story. Host: Alan Kasujja (@Kasujja on Twitter) Guest: Prudent Nsengiyumva, BBC Great Lakes reporter
