She is the mother of two girls aged five and nine respectively. Nyiransabimana has been struggling to support herself and her young family for several reasons, but most importantly, she was recently attacked by a strange skin disease that left her unable to do odd jobs to support her children.
While speaking to vomuhabura, the disheartened woman says she was chased from her own home by her brother-in-law after her husband abandoned the home and has not been seen since then.
According to Nyiransabimana, the matter was taken before local courts to be settled however to this day, not much progress has been made.
The LCIII Nyarubuye Sub County chairperson Ernest Buchokoli said he is aware of the woman’s plight adding that she left her home voluntarily because of pressure from her brother in law.
One of the elders in Kisoro who manages some of the local courts identified as Aaron Nsabuwera offered her and her children a house near Kisoro town, to live in as the matter is resolved.
