Pope Francis has named the Archbishop of Kigali, Antoine Kambanda, among 13 new cardinals announced on Sunday.
He is the first Rwandan to be elevated to the level of cardinal.

Pope Francis made him a bishop in 2013, and named him the Archbishop of Kigali in 2018.

Archbishop Kambanda has told Rwanda’s state TV that becoming a cardinal was “something I never thought of”.
