His Majesty King Kigeli V Ndahindurwa 1936 - 2016
It is with a very heavy heart that we announce that His Majesty King Kigeli V Ndahindurwa, the last King of Rwanda, reposed in the Lord in the early hours of the morning on 16 October 2016. He was a devout and dedicated believer and the last anointed African Roman Catholic King to reign over an entire country. Funeral details, the Heir to the Royal Throne of Rwanda, and related details are being discussed and will be announced in good order. His Majesty, born as Jean-Baptiste Ndahindurwa in 1936, took the regnal name of Kigeli V upon his ascension to the Throne.
