Arsenal ‘should stop taking money’ from Rwandan government, says Paul Rusesabagina’s daughter

Paul Rusesabagina’s daughter Carine Kanimba has been campaigning for her father’s release, and we asked her first what she feared would happen to him now.

We put the allegations in this interview to the Rwandan high commission who have yet to respond. The Rwandan authorities have denied Paul Rusesabagina’s allegations of human rights abuses.

Arsenal Football Club said they had raised awareness of Rwandan culture and heritage, and the tourism increase had supported an economic growth, lifting thousands out of poverty.
