Dr. Frank Habineza, the only opposition figure in Rwanda against the third term and possible constitutional change
The Rwandan Supreme Court has agreed to postpone the Green Party v the government of Rwanda case to allow the plaintiff time to find a lawyer.
The court was scheduled to hear the case Wednesday July 8 but Frank Habineza, President of the Democratic Green Party requested more time as he tries to get a lawyer in the high profile case where he is suing the government to block a possible alteration to the constitution to lift presidential term li
“Rwanda Supreme Court has accepted to postpone the case in order to give us more time to find a lawyer. New date is 29 July 2015,” Habineza said Wednesday via his Facebook page.
Habineza and his party have indicated they cant find a local attorney to represent them as every lawyer they contact is afraid to take on the Rwandan government.    Rwanda’s Supreme Court postpones Green Party case
