Newly Launched African Forensic Science Academy

The African Society of Forensic Medicine (ASFM) conference that has been taking place in Kigali concluded with historical achievements, including the launch of the African Forensic Science Academy (AFSA) that is expected to contribute to the development of forensic services in the country.

It is the first of its kind in the country, and comes after Rwanda’s intensified efforts to improve the justice system through forensic science evidence and establishment of Rwanda Forensic Laboratory (RFL).

The ASFM conference was in Rwanda from 7th to 10th March 2023.

The AFSA was officially launched by the Minister of Justice and State Attorney General, Dr. Emmanuel Ugirashebuja, Professor Uomo Eze, President of ASFM and Dr. Chares Karangwa, Director General RFL.
