"I am innocent, and for me it is the occasion to prove it", she declared to the press, before leaving Friday afternoon Kigali.
"I am not certainly glad to go back there, but it is necessary that I respect my engagements to the (French) judges", added Mrs Kabuye who was accompanied by several sympathizers, including deputies and representative of associations of women.
Accused and placed under judicial supervision, she had been authorized to return to her country with the obligation to return to France on 10 January at the latest.
Mrs Kabuye was arrested in Germany on 9 November and was transferred to Paris pursuant to an international arrest mandate from the anti-terrorist French Judge, Jean Louis Bruguiere.
Indicted for complicity in murders and criminal conspiracy, she has maintained her innocence.
Eight other prominent Rwandans are targeted by arrest warrants drawn by Judge Bruguiere in November 2006.
According to Louise Mushikiwabo, Minister for Information and Government Spokesperson, the warrants from Judge Bruguiere were issued "rather to serve political interests of genocidaires and their allies."
