Bernard Ntaganda was released from Mpanga prison in Nyanza on Wednesday after serving a four-year sentence after he had been found guilty of endangering national security, divisionism, inciting ethnic divisions and attempting to organize demonstrations without official authorization.
Ntaganda founded PS Imberakuri party but the party later expelled him due to his extremist views and appointed Christine Mukabunani as its leader. Together with a few party members, he then formed a parallel (unrecognized) party which last year entered a coalition with the FDLR terrorist organization.
The director of Mpanga prison, Alexis Sano, refuted claims that Ntaganda was mistreated while in prison and added that he wasn’t denied any of his rights.
Ntaganda has vowed to continue with politics.
