When Mbarubukeye gave evidence during his court appearance he couldn’t bring himself to tell the whole truth. Rutaganira’s testimony is held in very high regard, but it leads him to fall out with Zaninka. Batamuriza and Shema decide to name their child Umuhuza Mediatrice Shema. They chose the name to remind themselves of all the hard times they have been through.
