Four men have been found guilty of trying to murder Rwanda’s former army chief, Gen Faustin Kayumba Nyamwasa, in South Africa in June 2010.
Another two suspects, including his former driver, were acquitted by South African Magistrate Stanley Mkhari.
Gen Nyamwasa was shot and wounded outside his home in Johannesburg.
He had come to live in exile in South Africa several months earlier after falling out with his former ally, Rwandan President Paul Kagame.
Rwanda has denied involvement in the shooting.
