    Kigali, Rwanda – (African Boulevard News) – The Pope has defrocked a Rwandan priest accused of fathering a child. Father Wenceslas Munyeshyaka had been under investigation for several years by the Catholic Church, and the decision to remove him from the clergy was made recently after a lengthy investigation.

    Munyeshyaka had previously been accused of serious crimes during the Rwandan genocide of 1994, but the investigation found no evidence to support the allegations. However, it was discovered that he had fathered a child with a woman who was under his care, which is a serious breach of church rules.

    The bishop of Évreux issued a communiqué, which has been circulating online, stating that Munyeshyaka “is excluded” from continuing to serve as a priest “anywhere else” and “automatically loses all his rights as a priest.”

    Father Munyeshyaka had been serving as a priest in France since 1995, but the decision to defrock him means that he is no longer permitted to carry out any duties as a priest within the Catholic Church.

    The decision to defrock Munyeshyaka has been welcomed by many people who have been campaigning for justice for victims of abuse within the Church. There have been many cases of abuse within the Catholic Church, and many people feel that the Church has not done enough to address these issues.

    The Catholic Church has been accused of covering up cases of abuse and protecting abusive priests. However, in recent years, there has been a renewed effort to address these issues and to hold those responsible accountable for their actions.

    Experts have praised the decision to defrock Munyeshyaka, saying that it sends a clear message that the Catholic Church takes allegations of abuse seriously and will not tolerate such behavior.

    In conclusion, the decision to defrock Father Wenceslas Munyeshyaka is a significant step in the fight against abuse within the Catholic Church. It sends a clear message that the Church takes these allegations seriously and will not tolerate such behavior.
