A 56-year-old man who lives in the UK and once worked for a soft drinks company in Uganda has been named Rwanda's king-in-exile.

Ceoafrica gathered that Prince Emmanuel Bushayija succeeds his grandfather, King Kigeli V, who died in the United States in October at the age of 80.

In a statement, the Royal House said the new monarch grew up in exile in Uganda, and later worked for Pepsi Cola in the capital, Kampala.

"He then went on to work in the tourism industry in Kenya, before returning to Rwanda between 1994 and 2000. Since then, His Majesty has lived in the United Kingdom, where he is married with two children," it added.
