Kigali, Rwanda / MMI III (Weak shaking): I was in 4th floor apartment and felt shaking while lying in bed. At first I got up to check if anything else could explain and nothing could.
(304.3 km WNW from epicenter) / MMI IV (Light shaking): I could feel the building move slightly in a shaking motion for 4-5 seconds so much so that the only obvious explanation seemed it was an earthquake.
kigali, rwanda / MMI IV (Light shaking): I felt it in Kigali, Rwanda
