You can't stop thinking

“I’m never gonna hold you like I did / Or say I love you to the kids / You’re never gonna see it in my eyes / It’s not gonna hurt me when you cry / I’m not gonna miss you.” The situation is undeniably hurtful but we can'stop thinking we’re heartbroken over the loss of our beloved ones. "You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom". Malcolm X

A Candle For Remembering

A Candle For Remembering
May this memorial candle lights up the historical past of our beloved Country: Rwanda, We love U so much. If Tears could build a stairway. And memories were a lane. I would walk right up to heaven. To bring you home again. No farewell words were spoken. No time to say goodbye. You were gone before I knew it And. Only Paul Kagame knows why. My heart still aches with sadness. And secret tears still flow. What It meant to lose you. No one will ever know.

Welcome to Home Truths

The year is 1994, the Fruitful year and the Start of a long epoch of the Rwandan RPF bloody dictatorship. Rwanda and DRC have become a unique arena and fertile ground for wars and lies. Tutsi RPF members deny Rights and Justice to the Hutu majority, to Congolese people, publicly claim the status of victim as the only SurViVors while millions of Hutu, interior Tutsi and Congolese people were butchered. Please make RPF criminals a Day One priority. Allow voices of the REAL victims to be heard.

Everybody Hurts

“Everybody Hurts” is one of the rare songs on this list that actually offers catharsis. It’s beautifully simple: you’re sad, but you’re not alone because “everybody hurts, everybody cries.” You’re human, in other words, and we all have our moments. So take R.E.M.’s advice, “take comfort in your friends,” blast this song, have yourself a good cry, and then move on. You’ll feel better, I promise.—Bonnie Stiernberg

Why did Kagame this to me?

Why did Kagame this to me?
Can't forget. He murdered my mother. What should be my reaction? FYI: the number of orphans in Rwanda has skyrocketed since the 1990's Kagame's invasion. Much higher numbers of orphans had and have no other option but joining FDLR fighters who are identified as children that have Lost their Parents in Kagame's Wars inside and outside of Rwanda.If someone killed your child/spouse/parent(s) would you seek justice or revenge? Deep insight: What would you do to the person who snuffed the life of someone I love beyond reason? Forgiving would bring me no solace. If you take what really matters to me, I will show you what really matters. NITUTIRWANAHO TUZASHIRA.

RPF committed the unspeakable

RPF committed the unspeakable
The perverted RPF committed the unspeakable.Two orphans, together against the world. Point is the fact that their parents' murder by Kagame & RPF held no shock in the Western world. Up to now, kagame and his death squads still enjoy impunity. What goes through someone's mind as they know RPF murdered their parents? A delayed punishment is actually an encouragment to crime. “I always think I am a peaceful person but if someone harmed someone near and dear to me, I don't think I could be so peaceful. I would like to believe that I would seek justice - I would devote myself to bringing the 'perp' to a non-happy ending but would that be enough? You'd have to be in the situation I suppose before you could actually know how you would feel or what you would do”. Jean-Christophe Nizeyimana, Libre Penseur

Rwanda-rebranding

Rwanda-rebranding-Targeting dissidents abroad, despite war crimes and repression Rwanda has “A well primed PR machine”, and that this has been key in “persuading the key members of the international community that it has an exemplary constitution emphasizing democracy, power-sharing, and human rights which it fully respects”. It concluded: “The truth is, however, the opposite.” Rwanda has hired several PR firms to work on deflecting criticism, and rebranding the country.

Targeting dissidents abroad One of the more worrying aspects of Racepoint’s objectives was to “Educate and correct the ill informed and factually incorrect information perpetuated by certain groups of expatriates and NGOs,” including, presumably, the critiques of the crackdown on dissent among political opponents overseas. This should be seen in the context of accusations that Rwanda has plotted to kill dissidents abroad. A recent investigation by the Globe and Mail claims, “Rwandan exiles in both South Africa and Belgium – speaking in clandestine meetings in secure locations because of their fears of attack – gave detailed accounts of being recruited to assassinate critics of President Kagame….

Ways To Get Rid of Kagame

How to proceed for revolution in Rwanda:
  1. The people should overthrow the Rwandan dictator (often put in place by foreign agencies) and throw him, along with his henchmen and family, out of the country – e.g., the Shah of Iran, Marcos of Philippines.Compaore of Burkina Faso
  2. Rwandans organize a violent revolution and have the dictator killed – e.g., Ceaucescu in Romania.
  3. Foreign powers (till then maintaining the dictator) force the dictator to exile without armed intervention – e.g. Mátyás Rákosi of Hungary was exiled by the Soviets to Kirgizia in 1970 to “seek medical attention”.
  4. Foreign powers march in and remove the dictator (whom they either instated or helped earlier) – e.g. Saddam Hussein of Iraq or Manuel Noriega of Panama.
  5. The dictator kills himself in an act of desperation – e.g., Hitler in 1945.
  6. The dictator is assassinated by people near him – e.g., Julius Caesar of Rome in 44 AD was stabbed by 60-70 people (only one wound was fatal though).
  7. Organise strikes and unrest to paralyze the country and convince even the army not to support the dictaor – e.g., Jorge Ubico y Castañeda was ousted in Guatemala in 1944 and Guatemala became democratic, Recedntly in Burkina Faso with the dictator Blaise Compaoré.

KAGAME VS JUSTICE

"The countries financing the Freetown Court are particularly worried about budgetary matters, so it is important for this new tribunal to innovate and protect itself from the financial mismanagement and corruption that has undermined the ICTR."

Arusha, 29 mars 2011 (FH) - Un avocat français au Tribunal pénal international pour le Rwanda (TPIR) a mis en doute mardi la probité du procureur de la juridiction, l'accusant de « collusion » avec les autorités rwandaises.
Membre du barreau de Paris, Vincent Courcelle-Labrousse défend l'ex-ministre de la Jeunesse Callixte Nzabonimana, poursuivi pour crimes de génocide et crimes contre l'humanité.

L'avocat a présenté mardi à la chambre « des documents démontrant que le procureur avait remis de l'argent aux autorités rwandaises pour qu'elles le reversent aux témoins » de l'accusation dans le procès de Nzabonimana.

Il a indiqué que ces pièces lui avaient été longtemps cachées par la partie adverse avant de lui être communiquées lundi.

« Le procureur a confié aux autorités rwandaises la gestion financière des témoins à charge dans ce dossier », a accusé le plaideur, dénonçant « une collusion inadmissible ».

« Il est clair que dans l'esprit des témoins (ayant reçu cet argent), il y a (une communauté) d'intérêts et une identité de pouvoirs entre le procureur du TPIR et les autorités rwandaises », a encore assené Me Courcelle-Labrousse.

Dans l'une de ces pièces, une autorité administrative de Gitarama -la préfecture d'origine de l'accusé- reconnaît avoir reçu de « Adamou Allagouma, enquêteur du TPIR, la somme de 245.000 francs rwandais pour le traitement des témoins». Datée du 25 août 1998, la pièce est signée par Immaculée Mukamasabo, sous-préfet chargée des Affaires socio-culturelles à Gitarama, et porte le tampon de la République rwandaise.
« Quelle est l'intégrité de cette accusation dont les témoins passent à la caisse de la préfecture de Gitarama ? », a demandé l'avocat qui ne cesse d'affirmer que les témoignages contre son client ont été inventés de toutes pièces.
Il a annoncé qu'il allait déposer une requête écrite pour développer tous ses arguments et demander à la chambre de prendre des décisions à ce sujet.

Au nom du bureau du procureur, c'est Paul Ng'arua qui a réagi. « Il ne faudrait pas donner l'impression que nous avons tenté de corrompre les témoins. Le fait que les documents existent prouve la bonne foi du procureur », a-t-il déclaré. « Nous présenterons des arguments solides le moment venu. Il ne faudrait pas que les gens partent avec l'impression que le procureur est malhonnête », a poursuivi M.Ng'arua. Le magistrat kenyan a nié avoir tenté de cacher ces pièces à la défense. « Ces documents datent de 1998, il a fallu de la recherche, et quand nous les avons reçus, nous les leur avons communiqués », a-t-il expliqué.

Poursuivi pour crimes de génocide et crimes contre l'humanité, Nzabonimana est présenté par le procureur comme le principal instigateur des massacres dans sa préfecture natale de Gitarama. Ce que nie l'ancien dignitaire.

The FDU Vice-President calls upon Rwandan government an d Paul Kagame in particular to Respect Basic Human Rigths.The Rwanda prison authorities Ms Ingabire Victoire, a prominent leader of the Rwandan Opposition inside Rwanda. Ms.Ingabire Victoire is one of several political prisoners still being held in Rwanda even though she was arrested two years ago. The vicious crackdown on the opposition in Rwanda  is just another ugly face of the bloody criminal Paul Kagame, the Rwandan Junta leader's policies.





All dictators in Africa are chased away by the wind of Democracy
and Kagame is no exception

“It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the Rwandan dictator’s main advisor Tony Blair is wrong”

The ongoing RPF political repression and democratic resistance struggle

 
Rwandan prisoners are living in extremely harsh and inhuman conditions. They are not allowed out to be visited by families, friends, or loved ones. The visiting rights of the prisoner in Rwanda and rules governing visits do not exist for the Rwandan political opponents.


Ms. Ingabire Victoire and other political prisoners desperately need the support, accountability and encouragement that their family members, political parties’ members can provide. As many of the World Community know, Rwanda is ruled by a ruthless RPF military regime, the RPF regime has deprived prisoners of conscience their right to basic civil and human rights.

Ms. Ingabire Victoire
Rwandan opposition leader  and
The would-be President of Rwanda
Tehre is no denying that General Paul Kagame, the RPF criminal organization and RPF Government agents and their sympathizers routinely harass prisoners, their parties’ members.
DMI, CID, MP and local defence forces assault the opposition members, punch, scratch, and insult them (insoresore z'amabandi) – before dragging them onto other prisons or to forcibly remove them.

The existence of dozens of political prisoners, among which Ms. Ingabire Victoire, Me Ntaganda Bernard, Deo Mushayidi and Ntakirutinka Charles and Niyitegeka in prisons inside Rwanda clearly highlights that Rwandans are still not free. The arrest and detention of political opponents is a crime.


Therefore, the release of all political prisoners is the very first step for national reconciliation.

African SurViVors International, as a charity organization working to promote democracy, human rights and national reconciliation, inside countries of the African Great lakes Region  is committed to draw attention of the World Community towards Paul Kagame's daily criminal records. In a country like Rwanda, the FDU and other political parties' members inside Rwanda daily face the threat of arrest, DISAPPEARANCES, imprisonment and or torture and ASSASSINATIONS, simply for telling the truth about the escalating social, economic and political situation in Rwanda. Despite this risk, the shadow of the FDU chairperson Mr. Boniface Twagirimana insists on the necessity of the despotic regime to allow different views taking place in the Rwandan society, respecting freedom of expression together with  other views other than those praising the autocratic regime.
The FDU communiqué’s details the situation of Rwandan’s political prisoners languishing behind bars and highlight Ms. Ingabire Victoire’s worsening situation. However, it goes further, emphasizing the importance of the release of all political prisoners to current and future political situation in Rwanda.


The release of all political prisoners particularly Ms. Ingabire Victoire and Me Ntaganda Bernard, Deo Mushayidi and many others who were imprisoned because of their fight for democracy, is the responsibility of all of the world community, the US and UK citiziens, the European Union citizens and people of Rwanda who love freedom and peace.”


For this reason, it is the responsibility of all peoplearound the world to work for the immediate and unconditional release of all Rwandan political prisoners.


Furthermore, ASI warns RPF and the Kagame’s government regime and the perpetrators of awful abuses that the arbitrary arrest, torture, detention, political and other human rights violations against people willing to peacefully exercise their basic civil and political rights are, in fact, a crime.

By detailing the unlawful nature of refusing the rights for prisoners visits, the arrest and detention of political opponents, the torture they are subjected to during interrogation, the secret court trials y DMI, CID and Local Defense forces, and most importantlly the lack of due process, ASI draws attention to the absence of the rule of law in Rwanda. It also shows that the abuse and torture does not stop after the interrogation period.
Once political opponents are transferred to prison they face a number of challenges and cruel and often life threatening prison environment. Their political parties’ members continue to suffer for menace and daily repression as it is highlighted by the hardship they endure.



ASI finally highlights the seriousness of the FDU communiqué to raise awareness at the international level, including at the UN Human Rights Council, and with international organizations, amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, working for human rights and democracy in Rwanda, about the political prisoner situation in Rwanda. It is also a way of honoring the bravery of those individuals working to promote human rights issues inside Rwanda and in the region as well and the sacrifice made by dozens of those still in prison for their efforts in the fight for freedom and democracy in Rwanda.


To our readers and Human rights organizations:


1. Contact your local and national government representatives, non-government organizations and human rights groups to support, to take part in actions, or become a volunteer to help incarcerated mothers and fathers to be unconditionally released and in the meantime, to be allow out to be visited by their families, political parties’ members, human rights organisations, legal representatives, etc.


2. Get contact with the appropriate local organizations (amnesty International, Human rights watch and others) to make pressure on the Rwandan dictatorship to recognize the value of prisoners’ families and allow them out to visit without harassment.


African SurViVors International (ASI) is an international nonpartisan charity organization devoted to defending human rights. It’s an organization working to promote democracy and national reconciliation, inside countries of the African Great lakes Region.


ASI centers its work on the twin concepts of freedom of self-determination and freedom from tyranny. These ideals include the belief that all human beings have the rights to speak freely, to associate with those of like mind, and to leave and enter their countries. Individuals in a free society must be accorded equal treatment and due process under law, and must have the opportunity to participate in the governments of their countries; ASI’s ideals likewise find expression in the conviction that all human beings have the right to be free from arbitrary detainment or exile and from interference and coercion in matters of conscience. ASI does not support nor condone violence.

The United States media has been portraying the conflict in Libya in different ways that has confused many and left people wondering what is really going on there.

War Correspondent Keith Harmon Snow says there is a psychological operation performed by the Pentagon to persuade the American people through propaganda one way or the other.

Snow on US, Libya, propaganda




War Correspondent Keith Harmon Snow says there is a psychological operation being perpetrated against the public by the Pentagon to persuade the American people support a full scale military invasion of Libya.
Date Posted: 14:37:04 03/19/11 Sat


Author: Bizarro_Greenspan

Subject: Here's some interesting stuff from Keith Harmon Snow on Libya

"Another strategic geopolitical concern of the western powers is the protection and control of the massive nuclear (uranium) resources both inside Libya and nearby. France and Canada had already signed memorandums (circa 2007-2008) with Libya to explore and exploit uranium in Libya.

France's entire nuclear weapons complex (and massive nuclear power industry) revolves around uranium extracted from Agadez and Arlit in northern Niger and it was built, over the past 50 years, out of the blood, sweat and tears of the Nigerienne people. Japanese companies have been extracting uranium out of Niger through the Overseas Uranium Resources Development Corporation (OURD), in cooperation with U.S., Israeli, German and French corporations. In 2008, France and former colony Algeria signed defense and civil nuclear power accords, including cooperation in research, training, technology transfer and the exploration and production of uranium, all of interest to French nuclear giant Areva Corporation. Canadian and Australian corporations are also mining in Libya's other southern neighbor, Burkina Faso. And yet, unlike Libya, where the people have seen some benefits from the extraction of wealth from their land, Niger remains the second poorest country in the world and Burkina Faso is close behind.

Russia and Ukraine had also signed memorandums with Libya regarding uranium exploration and development. However, China intends to quadruple its uranium consumption and China's largest nuclear power corporation China National Nuclear Corp, has signed an agreement with China-Africa Development Fund to jointly develop uranium resources in Africa. Western nuclear corporations aim to monopolize Libya's uranium sector and exclude China and Russia from the exploration and development -- so they can build the nuke plants themselves and sell uranium to their Asian competitors."

Maidhc Ó Cathail adds this observation:

“As Keith Harmon Snow rightly points out:

“The biggest terrorists in the world are getting away with absolute murder at this very moment…. Their names aren’t even known in the media, like Maurice Tempelsman.”

In “Chloe’s Blood Diamond,” Harmon Snow writes:

Belgian-born Maurice Tempelsman has a long and bloody history in Africa. When Congo’s first Premier, Patrice Lumumba, pledged to return diamond wealth back to the newly independent Congo in the early 60’s, Tempelsman, who began with De Beers in the 1950’s, helped engineer the coup d’etat that consolidated the dictatorship of 29 year-old Colonel Mobutu, and the coup against Ghana’s Kwame Nkrumah; diamonds were at stake in each.

“I believe this was the beginning of what we now know of as conflict diamonds in the Congo,” says blood diamond expert and investigative journalist Janine Roberts, author of the book Glitter and Greed: The Secret World of the Diamond Cartel. “From then on diamonds would be extensively used to discreetly fund wars, coups, repression and dictatorships, in Africa.”


Maurice Tempelsman is Chairman of the American Jewish Congress, a Zionist pressure group that claims it works closely with the Israeli military. SEC filings show that LKI directors are high-rolling Zionist lawyers and investment bankers: one director belongs to the law firm that once represented President Kennedy—another Tempelsman friend. LKI is also connected to the euphemistically named United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

The Tempelsman empire remains rock solid behind Leon Tempelsman & Sons, De Beers, and Lazare Kaplan International—supplier of Tiffany’s and Cartier’s diamonds.


If Tempelsman was a “friend” of JFK’s, however, it was most likely in the sense that Abe Feinberg, Arthur Krim and Penny Pritzker were friends of Truman, LBJ and Obama, respectively.”



PETROLEUM & EMPIRE IN NORTH AFRICA


Muammar Gaddafi Accused of Genocide? NATO Invasion Underway.


3 March 2011 (Revised & updated 4 March 2011 with slight additional revisions 19 March.)
Are events unfolding in Libya, Tunisia and Egypt more about petro-terrorism or about freedom and democracy? How much oil is there in North Africa? Who is in control of that oil? What is the relationship between the West and Muammar Gaddafi? Is he really the terrorist we've all been led to believe he is? Who is the Libyan "opposition" and who are the "rebels" we read about?


Presented with this story are petroleum industry concessions maps ** for North Africa that people might want to ponder in between the Western propaganda on Libya. Amidst the full-court press of propaganda presented by the western media and State Department disinformation apparatus we find that Muammar Gaddafi is even accused of committing genocide against his own people. Are there double standards at work?

  The Killing of Rwandan Hutu refugees 

 in J'accuse
 7th Edition


 [Since 1994, the world witnesses the horrifying reality : the Tutsi minority (14%) ethnic domination, the Tutsi minority ethnic rule, tyranny and corruption in Rwanda. The current government has been characterized by the total impunity of RPF criminals, the Tutsi economic monopoly, the Tutsi militaristic domination with an iron hand, and the brutal suppression of the rights of the majority of the Rwandan people (85% are Hutus), mass-arrests and mass-murder by the RPF criminal organization.
So long as justice and accountability for RPF past and current crimes are ignored and delayed, Peace and Stability will remain illusive and impossible in Rwanda=>ASIF]




 In October 1996 Paul Kagame decided to continue the Hutu hunt down across the border into Congo. This killing mission was not limited to Rwandan Hutu citizens only, but included Congolese of Hutu ethnic background.

Léon Kengo wa Dondo
Chairman of the DRC Senate

On October 1, 2010, the UN finally released its report (read it here) about the war crimes, crimes against humanity, major violations of international laws and possibly a genocide committed by Rwandan troops (APR) and its allies, the Rwandan sponsored Congolese rebel group Alliance of Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Congo (AFDL ). The report describes bombings, killing by blows of hammers and hoes, shootings, mass graves, dumping bodies in river, the calling of crowds to fake meetings, shooting and killing them as they gather, tying hands and legs before the killing, burning alive and dismembering of Rwandan refugees and Congolese alike. Could Rwandan President Paul Kagame have done this alone without the help of those who are not named in the report? Neocolonialists are equally to blame for the tragedy in Congo, but they serve as judges, critics and arbitrators and were not named in the report.

 The Killing of Rwandan Hutu refugees

It is impossible to determine the exact number of Rwandan refugees killed in Congo. To get a sense of what happened, here are selected excerpts from the UN report.:
“On 1 March 1997, AFDL/APR units killed 11 Rwandan Hutu refugees belonging to religious orders on the Kindu road, around twenty kilometres from Kalima, in the Pangi territory. The victims, eight priests and three nuns, had been refugees in South Kivu since 1994. … the soldiers beat them to death with sticks. The bodies of the victims were buried at the scene” (paragraph 238).“Around eight o’clock in the evening on 14 March 1997, after the defeat of the FAZ/ex-FAR/Interahamwe coalition, AFDL/APR soldiers allegedly killed at least 470 refugees in the two camps near Wanie Rukula, in the Ubundu territory. Most of the victims’ bodies were dumped in the Luboya River but some were placed in three mass graves” (paragraph 242).


“It was impossible to determine the number of refugees killed by AFDL/APR soldiers in the attacks on the camps along the Goma to Rutshuru road…. From 2 November to 30 November 1996, the people of Kibumba buried 2,087 bodies. Between 30 November 1996 and 26 January 1997, EUB - Équipe d’urgence de la biodiversité- buried 1,919 bodies in and around the Kibumba camp”.


Targeting Congolese Hutu

If Rwandan Hutus were hunted down by the new Rwandan government forces, why were Congolese Hutu selectively targeted? Here is one of the reasons found in the UN report. “Many witnesses have claimed to have spotted a large number of Tutsi Banyarwanda youths who had left Rutshuru territory between 1990 and 1996 among the AFDL/APR soldiers. According to several witnesses, the AFDL/APR soldiers displayed a clear desire for revenge in their massacres of the Hutu Banyarwanda, targeting villages where Tutsis had been persecuted in the past.”. “The term ‘Banyarwanda’, literally “people from Rwanda”, is used to designate both Hutu and Tutsi populations originating from Rwanda and living in North Kivu. Some are the descendants of peoples of Rwandan origin who settled on the Congolese territory before 1885 and whose Zairian nationality has never been seriously contested. Most Banyarwanda, however, arrived in Congo/Zaire during the colonial era or after the country’s independence” . This footnote explains also in part the killing of Congolese other than Hutu particularly in south Kivu. You are encouraged to read the report here 

The Complicity in Crime
 A lot has been written about the United States and the United Kingdom connections to the war in Congo through their unconditional support of the Rwanda government. Although some analysts say that their support is out of guilt for not having done enough to top stop the Rwandan genocide, there is more to the story. The French, US and UK competitions for political and economic interests in the region are a big part of the Congo tragedy.
The question at hand is how to expose, oppose and eradicate neocolonialism. We must demand justice for past and present crimes starting by the crimes that continue to take place in Congo. If the US and the UK sign off on the creation of a court to try Kagame and his allies for their crimes in Congo as the UN Report suggests, who else may be exposed in the proceedings?

[Since 1994, the world witnesses the horrifying reality : the Tutsi minority (14%) ethnic domination, the Tutsi minority ethnic rule, tyranny and corruption in Rwanda. The current government has been characterized by the total impunity of RPF criminals, the Tutsi economic monopoly, the Tutsi militaristic domination with an iron hand, and the brutal suppression of the rights of the majority of the Rwandan people (85% are Hutus), mass-arrests and mass-murder by the RPF criminal organization.


So long as justice and accountability for RPF past and current crimes are ignored and delayed, Peace and Stability will remain illusive and impossible in Rwanda=>ASIF]


It draws attention to the to the appalling fact that the total countrywide death toll every six months is similar to that for the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, which killed more than 230,000 people in 12 countries. Adding to the hundreds of thousands of Japanese victims, Kagame remains the bloodiest killer the world has ever known with a criminal record of 8 millions of Rwandan and Congolese victims.

Paul Kagame, the Rwandan Tsunami



 
Forget Gaddafi. Blair's NEW best friend is a despot guilty of even bloodier slaughter
At the former Prime Minister’s side throughout was a rake-thin and bespectacled black man whom Blair was conspicuously keen to introduce to the assembled movers and shakers. Not surprising, perhaps, given that the event — at which Mr Blair was officially the chairman — was arranged in sole honour of Paul Kagame, the president of the African state of Rwanda.
Friends: Tony Blair greets Rwandan
President Paul Kagame,
The Rwandan Tsunami


Eyes will see and still not believe
the infamous support of
the mastermind of the
the Rwandan and Congolese
Genocide




And this being Mr Blair, the subject on his lips throughout the stylish meeting, held during the World Economic Forum in Davos, was cold, hard cash. Or, more to the point, how much he could persuade the super-rich investment bankers to plough into businesses in his close friend Mr Kagame’s emerging economy.

It is a task to which Mr Blair is devoting much of his time. Both he and his wife Cherie are regular guests of Kagame, flying in on a fabulously luxurious private jet (of which more later) and staying in a smart suite at the Rwandan capital Kigali’s finest lodgings, the Serena Hotel.

Their relationship, it has to be said, is something of a love-in. Mr Blair describes Kagame, a former rebel soldier in the once war-torn country, as a ‘visionary leader’ and ‘great friend’. For his part, the grateful Kagame has called on his people to name their children after his new English chum.

Meanwhile, Mrs Blair recently paid a misty-eyed tribute to his regime’s promotion of the rights of women.

Which, one imagines, must have put an ironic smile on the face of one of Rwanda’s leading female journalists, Agnes Nkusi Uwimana, now languishing in Kigali’s grim Central Prison.

Last month, the newspaper editor began a 17-year sentence for publishing critical articles in the run-up to the country’s blatantly fixed presidential elections last August that saw Kagame — the country’s leader since 2000 — returned to office with a 93 per cent majority.

Another writer on her paper was jailed for seven years. Meanwhile, their paper was summarily closed down by presidential order. Indeed, the increasingly dictatorial Kagame has now closed down all the independent media outlets the country once had.

By Paul Kagame, the Rwandan Tsunami in Kongo

No wonder Amnesty International has condemned the jailing, while the White House recently attacked Kagame’s growing political suppression.

Even so, Miss Uwimana and her journalist colleague can count themselves lucky. Others have suffered much worse fates.

The sham elections, at which 53-year-old father-of-four Kagame banned the two major opposition parties from standing and stood against three members of his own ruling coalition, were marred by the mysterious deaths of some of his political opponents and critics.

In June, the acting editor of another newspaper was shot in the face and killed. The journalist, Jean-Leonard Rugambage, was silenced because he exposed corruption involving Kagame and claimed he had uncovered the government’s involvement in the attempted murder of a former Rwandan army general exiled in South Africa.
Worse was to come. A month later, the vice-president of the country’s Democratic Green Party, which had been due to stand against the president’s Rwandan Patriotic Front ruling party, went missing before his almost decapitated body was discovered. Kagame’s government denied any involvement.

In October, the woman leader of the central African country’s most prominent opposition party, FDU-Inkingi, was jailed under new defamation laws brought in by Kagame to stifle opposition.

By Paul Kagame, the Rwandan Tsunami in Kibeho
Then, two months ago, four exiled political rivals who used to be part of Kagame’s inner circle, but now accuse him of corruption, were jailed by a court for up to 24 years in their absence.

Which makes Mr Blair’s congratulatory letter to Kagame, hailing his ‘popular mandate’ after the vote, seem a bit of a sick joke.

Blair’s robust backing for his latest dodgy friend bears striking similarities to his long-time support of Libya’s Colonel Gaddafi, to whom he shamelessly cosied up during his time as PM, and to whom he has remained close ever since.

Kigali, 18th March 2011.
KIGALI PRISON VISIT: TIME IS NOTHING WHEN THERE IS DETERMINATION

Today is the 155th day in captivity for the opposition leader Ms. Victoire Ingabire, FDU-INKINGI chair. The Kigali maximum security accepted only 20 persons from the list submitted by the party Secretary General for the visit of Ms. Victoire Ingabire and other opposition leaders including Bernard Ntaganda, President of Parti Social Imberakuri; Deo Mushayidi, leader of PDP Imanzi and Charles Ntakirutinka, leader of PDR Ubuyanja. Against the wish of the visiting members, the prison staff imposed on the list a non-invited visitor, pretending to be a party representative, with a clear role to sabotage the event.

The visitors congratulated her for the international prize named "Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza for Democracy and Peace" that was inaugurated on Saturday, March 12, 2011 in Montreal , Canada by the International Network of Women for Democracy and Peace (known by its French acronym, RIFPD) on the occasion of the hundredth anniversary of the International Women’s Day. The trophy was awarded to her in absentia. "From now on, this award will honour each year everyone who will thrive as part of the struggle for democracy and peace in Africa " said the presiding RIFPD representative in Montreal, before announcing the imminent setting up of a jury.

Gratefully, Ms. Ingabire compared the struggle for democracy to the water gathering around barricades of walls , calmly infiltrating, steadily pressing until they disintegrate and give way.
Time is nothing when there is determination and courage. “Send them my deepest thanks and appreciation for solidarity and support”, she said before being escorted back to her cell.

Le colonel en retraite Luc Marchal, ancien numéro deux de la force de l'ONU au Rwanda lors du début du génocide de 1994 au Rwanda, a violemment critiqué la visite que le président de la Chambre, André Flahaut et le vice-président du Sénat, Willy Demeyer, ont effectué la semaine dernière à Kigali, dressant un parallèle avec celle de l'ex-ministre française des Affaires étrangères, Michèle Alliot-Marie, en Tunisie.
Le Colonel en retraite Luc Marschall en 2010

"Comment est-il possible que des responsables politiques, exerçant des fonctions importantes au sommet des structures démocratiques de notre pays et qui ont, précisément, la tâche de veiller au respect de la démocratie et de promouvoir ses idéaux de par le monde, vont se compromettre au sein d'une dictature pure et dure dont le chef est accusé, dans un récent rapport de l'ONU, d'être responsable de la mort de plusieurs millions de personnes?", écrit-il dans une lettre ouverte adressée à ces deux parlementaires et intitulée "Le voyage de la honte".

MM. Flahaut et Demeyer (PS tous deux) ont participé le 9 mars à Kigali à la conférence des présidents des parlements de la Communauté des pays des Grands Lacs (CEPGL), qui a adopté un texte portant sur les fonts baptismaux la création d'une force militaire régionale à la République démocratique du Congo (RDC), du Rwanda, et du Burundi. Ils ont également rencontré le président rwandais Paul Kagame.
"Comment justifier le parrainage d'une force militaire en y intégrant un Parti-Etat, le Rwanda, qui depuis plus de vingt ans sème la mort et la désolation dans la région? Faire croire que cet embryon d'armée commune serait un gage de stabilité dans cette zone martyre de l'Afrique est une duperie inique. Les forces de défense rwandaises sont composées à plus de 90% de Tutsis, alors que ceux-ci ne représentent qu'un faible pourcentage de la population du Rwanda", poursuit l'ex-ancien commandant du secteur Kigali de la Mission des Nations Unies au Rwanda (MINUAR).

"Par comparaison, que penser du cas de Michèle Alliot-Marie, contrainte à la démission de son poste ministériel pour s'être compromise avec le régime tunisien de Ben Ali, alors que ce dernier n'est ni accusé d'avoir fait assassiner deux autres chefs d'Etat ni accusé d'être responsable de la mort de plus de cinq millions de personnes ni accusé de piller depuis des années les richesses minières d'un pays voisin?", se demande encore le colonel Marchal.

Il souligne enfin que lorsque dix Casques bleus belges ont été sauvagement assassinés le 7 avril 1994, "c'est précisément parce qu'ils étaient tenus pour responsables de la mort du président (de l'époque, Juvénal) Habyarimana".
"Vous ne pouvez ignorer les lourdes présomptions de culpabilité qui pèsent sur Paul Kagame dans l'organisation et l'exécution de l'attentat du 6 avril. Etant donné ce contexte particulier, il me semble qu'une certaine retenue s'imposait, par respect pour la mémoire de nos dix Casques bleus martyrisés. Ce ne fut pas le cas. C'est la raison pour laquelle je ressens, douloureusement, votre voyage comme celui de la honte", conclut l'ancien officier.

 A molotov cocktail has been thrown at the house of Rwandan opposition politician Victoire Ingabire. The Kigali police confirmed to Radio Netherlands Worldwide that a water bottle filled with petrol was found in her courtyard.

Around eight o’clock in the evening Boniface Twagirimana, vice-president of the opposition party United Democratic Forces (UDF), was watching television in Ingabire’s house. Mr Twagirimana: “I heard a weird sound and went outside to have a look. There was a big fire in the garden and I found the burning bottle. Then I called the police."

The police has started an investigation into the case but haven't arrested any suspect. Ingabire’s house has not been damaged. Victoire Ingabire, opposition leader of the UDF, is currently in prison in Kigali, waiting for her trial. She is charged by the Rwandan prosecution for “association with a terrorist group, propagation of the ideology of genocide, revisionism and ‘sectarianism’.�

Acte de vandalisme chez Victoire Ingabire

La maison de l’opposante rwandaise Victoire Ingabire (FDU) à Kigali a été l’objet d’un acte de vandalisme.
Un bidon rempli d’essence a été jeté dans sa cour. L’incident s’est produit mercredi soir vers 20.00h, ainsi que l’a confirmé la police de Kigali à Radio Nederland.

A cette heure-ci, le vice-président du parti FDU Boniface Twagirimana regardait le journal télévisé à la maison d'Ingabire. Twagirimana : « J’ai entendu un bruit, puis je suis sorti de la maison. Il y a eu du beaucoup de feu dans le jardin. J’ai trouvé un bidon qui contenait de l’essence. Puis j’ai averti la police. »
L’auteur de l’acte est inconnu jusqu’à présent, selon la police. La maison d’Ingabire n’a pas été endommagée. Madame Ingabire, leader des Forces démocratiques unifiées FDU, est actuellement en prison à Kigali en attente de son procès. La Justice rwandaise la soupçonne d’être responsable d’activités terroristes et est à la recherche de preuves.

 KPFA Evening News broadcast March 12


KPFA News Anchor Cameron Jones:

African scholars and activists
Nii Akuetta, Claude Gatebuke, Emira Wood, Jacques Bahati,
Nita Evele and Kambale Musavuli
were the panelists at the Great Lakes Advocates’ Coalition’s
March 2 briefing on the 2010 U.N. Mapping Report,
which documents atrocities committed
in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
None of them were invited to the
March 8 Congressional hearing on Congo
where
Ben Affleck and John Prendergast testified.

On Tuesday the House Foreign Relations Committee held a hearing on the Democratic Republic of Congo, the most lethal conflict in the world since World War II, which has continued since the International Rescue Committee estimated over three years ago that more than 5.4 million people had died in the conflict, most of whom had died of hardship after being driven from their homes.


 Actor Ben Affleck, founder of the Eastern Congo Initiative, greets John Prendergast, co-founder of The Enough Project, prior to a hearing by the House Foreign Affairs Committee’s Africa, Global Health and Human Rights Subcommittee on “The Democratic Republic of the Congo: Securing Peace in the Midst of Tragedy” in Washington on March 8. No Congolese or African person testified. – Photo: Kevin Dietsch, UPI
The hearing featured the testimony of actor Ben Affleck, heiress and philanthropist Cindy McCain and John Prendergast, co-founder of the Enough Project, a foreign policy lobbying project of the Center for American Progress. No Congolese, African or even African American person testified. KPFA’s Ann Garrison has more.
KPFA/Ann Garrison: Friends of the Congo Executive Director Maurice Carney told KPFA that the absence of a Congolese or even African voice at the Congressional hearing on Congo’s catastrophe was no surprise, even in the age of President Barack Obama.

Maurice Carney: It’s part of a long pattern of the colonization of information. You have experts who claim to be speaking on behalf of the Africans.

KPFA/Ann Garrison: The African Great Lakes Advocacy Coalition had, six days earlier, held a briefing on the U.N. Mapping Report, released on Oct. 1, 2010, which documents mass atrocities in Congo, with an all African, including Congolese, panel. An intern from John Prendergast’s Enough Project was in attendance, asking questions, but, as Carney noted, none of the panel’s all African speakers were invited to speak at Tuesday’s hearing.


African scholars and activists Nii Akuetta, Claude Gatebuke, Emira Wood, Jacques Bahati, Nita Evele and Kambale Musavuli were the panelists at the Great Lakes Advocates’ Coalition’s March 2 briefing on the 2010 U.N. Mapping Report, which documents atrocities committed in the Democratic Republic of Congo. None of them were invited to the March 8 Congressional hearing on Congo where Ben Affleck and John Prendergast testified. – Photo: Arrian LewisAffleck and Prendergast attributed most of Congo’s violence to two militias, the Democratic Federation for the Liberation of Rwanda on Congo’s southeastern border with Rwanda and the Lord’s Resistance Army on its northeastern border with Uganda, but the African Great Lakes Advocates said that Rwandan President Paul Kagame and Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, both longstanding U.S. allies, are most responsible and that this has been abundantly evidenced in the U.N. Mapping Report and many previous U.N. reports referenced in the Mapping Report. 


Former Georgia Congresswoman
Cynthia McKinney held congressional hearings
on the Congo conflict in 2001.
Maurice Carney: Both the FDLR and the LRA can enroll in the “Museveni and Kagame School of Mass Atrocities” and get a Ph.D., because the overwhelming suffering in the region has been triggered by U.S. allies Rwanda and Uganda, led by their presidents. So, when you have people testifying in Congress and talking about FDLR and LRA to the exclusion of U.S. allies Rwanda and Uganda, you feel like you’re in the twilight zone, like “What are you talking about?”


Friends of the Congo Executive Director Maurice Carney
Friends of the Congo maintains that, based on the information that these groups present, we can’t help but be led to the conclusion that they’re looking to cover for U.S. strategic and economic interests because their presentations are marked by two striking exclusions: One, a discussion around Rwanda and Uganda, and, two, a discussion around multinational corporations, the mining companies that are directly involved in the region.

KPFA/Ann Garrison: John Prendergast is most often introduced on talk shows and in congressional hearings as an author and human rights advocate. Neither he nor Enough hide his previous employment as director of African Affairs on Bill Clinton’s National Security Council and on the National Intelligence Council.

Ben Affleck made another celebrity appearance last November with Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chair John Kerry at a press conference about foreign policy in Congo at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, which is now headed by former Deputy Director of Defense John Hamre. Again, Maurice Carney:

No Congolese or African person testified. – Photo: Kevin Dietsch, UPI

Maurice Carney: The people called in to testify are usually those who reinforce U.S. foreign policy in a particular region of the world, not those who challenge U.S. foreign policy. So that’s just the way it works in Washington unless you connect with a progressive, such as Cynthia McKinney, when she was in the Congress.Former Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney held congressional hearings on the Congo conflict in 2001.
She brought in alternative views that exposed the role of U.S. foreign policy abroad. But we’ve yet to find another champion like Cynthia McKinney.

KPFA/Ann Garrison: A partial transcript of McKinney’s 2001 Congressional hearings on Congo can be found on the website of the San Francisco Bay View newspaper with the title “End the conflict in the Congo.” Keith Harmon Snow’s essay, “Ben Affleck, Rwanda and Corporate Sustained Catastrophe,” can be found on the Dissident Voice website.
