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.

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.

[Since 1994, the world witnesses the horrifying Tutsi minority (14%) ethnic domination, the Tutsi minority ethnic rule with an iron hand, 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, and the brutal suppression of the rights of the majority of the Rwandan people (85% are Hutus)and mass arrests of Hutus by the RPF criminal organization =>AS International]

  1.  (Reuters) - The Congolese army said... 

  2. RDC : la Monusco « extrêmement préoccupée » par la reprise des combats au Nord-Kivu

  3. Nord-Kivu: après Kibumba, les FARDC récupèrent la localité de Kiwanja


Les combats qui ont repris entre les FARDC et les M23 & Alliés ce vendredi 25 octobre 2013 à 4h00 du matin à Kanyamahoro non loin de Kibumba et qui se sont intensifiés toute la journée et la nuit ont continué ce samedi et se sont généralisés sur plusieurs fronts en zone rebelle. Rappelons que dans la zone de Kibumba, trois fronts avaient été ouverts : Kanyamahoro, Butebo et Trois Antennes.
En fin de journée, les FARDC avaient pris le contrôle de la position M23 des Trois Antennes de Kibumba, vers 21h, le front de Butebo, au Nord-Est de Kibati a observé une accalmie relative tandis que celui de Kanyamahoro continuait et que les FARDC repoussaient les M23 & Alliés vers Ruhunda (où se trouvait jadis le marché ayant lieu tous les lundis et jeudis) à Buhumba.
SITUATION A KIBUMBA
Des militaires congolais renforcent leurs positions autour de Goma au second jour des affrontements face aux rebelles du M23 (Photo Monusco)Tôt ce matin, nos sources ont indiqué que d’importants renforts avaient été infiltrés vers le front de Butebo par les villages rwandais de Kanyesheja, Munege et Giko. Vers 6h, des combats acharnés avaient lieu dans cette zone frontalière avec le rwanda avant de baisser d’intensité vers 11h. Les M23 & Alliés y auraient perdu de nombreux hommes et abandonné d’importantes quantités d’armes. Joint au téléphone, le porte-parole militaire a rassuré ce matin en ces termes : « de ce côté, soyez calmes, le terrain est trop miné et nos éléments les y attendent de pieds fermes. Ils ne s’en sortiront pas. Nous savons que c’est la frontière et que là tout est possible.
Nous avons donc pris toutes les dispositions, laissez-les venir, ils vont subir la puissance de feu des FARDC ». L’on pense que ce que prédisait le Col Olivier AMULI s’est concrétisé car les rescapés ont pris le large et seraient rentrés d’où ils étaient venus à l’aube.

FARDC officers strategy
Sur l’axe Kibati-Kibumba en passant par Kanyamahoro, les FARDC continuaient des opérations de ratissage pour contrôler l’axe routier qui sépare le parc national des Virunga à l’Ouest du pâturage communautaire de Buhumba, appelée Kibaya, à l’Est. Quelques éléments des M23, appuyés par des tirs de mortiers rwandais (sic. témoins locaux) qui provenaient de Kabuye et Kabuhanga ont tenté de résister à la progression des FARDC avant de se retrancher vers la colline Nyundo, en direction de Ruhunda et du chef-lieu du territoire de Nyiragongo. Les témoins ont indiqué qu’une nouvelle arme lourde a été rapidement montée et installée au village Kabuye, non loin de l’EP Buhumba et a servi pendant un temps pour appuyé les M23 et Alliés qui tentaient de résister dans le « Kibaya ». 

 

Ces éléments M23 & alliés qui s’étaient retranchés sur la colline Nyundo y ont résisté de 11h jusqu’à 15h30, heure à la quelle les FARDC les y ont délogés et s’y sont installées dans un concert des tirs de joie sous. Les éléments M23 ont détalé et se sont dirigés vers la frontière rwandaise.
Pendant ce temps, les 4 armes d’artillerie lourde qui étaient à Kabuye et Kabuhanga ont été retirés et tractées vers le Rwanda, rapportent nos sources. Les habitants qui suivaient ces événements à partir des collines surplombant la zone de combats, dans les villages de Gitotoma et Hehu, ont applaudi et nous ont appelé pour nous faire vivre en direct sur leurs téléphones leur joie et les tirs joyeux des FARDC nouvellement positionnées sur le sommet de la colline Nyundo. Les FARDC ont alors progressé vers le bureau du territoire de Nyiragongo et au Centre de Santé de Référence Afya Kibumba où elles sont arrivées vers 16h locales sans trop résistance. Sur leur route, un constat : le village Nyundo et le petit centre Ruhunda dans la localité Rwibiranga ont été vidés de leur population.

Contrairement à ce que certaines radios ont affirmé ce matin, le chef-lieu du territoire de Nyiragongo n’a été libéré que ce samedi, 26 octobre 2013 que vers 16h10. Il ne fallait pas confondre ce chef-lieu avec la petite bourgade de Kibumba où se trouve le marché des légumes sur la route Goma-Rutshuru avant d’entrer dans le parc qui sépare Kibumba de Rugari (Mwaro). Cette petite cité s’appelle Kingarame (« Ku Mboga »). Les témoins rapportent que de nombreux M23 & Alliés et, malheureusement, leurs familles auraient péri sur la colline appelée « Bya Karenge », dans la ferme de feu le chef coutumier Makombe.
Ce soir, tous les rescapés M23 & alliés se dirigent clandestinement vers Gasizi, derrière les collines Hehu, au pied du volcan Mikeno où ils tenteraient de se regrouper pour aller l’on ne sait dans quelle direction. Les FARDC sont en direction de Kabuhanga où ils prendront position face aux éléments « officiels » de la RDF postés sur le territoire rwandais. En ce moment, des chars des FARDC contrôlent la route Goma-Kibumba (Kingarame) et les FARDC ont libéré totalement tout le groupement de Buhumba et quasiment 98% du territoire de Nyiragongo.

SITUATION A KIWANJA-KAUNGA-MABENGA

Les rumeurs qui circulaient hier soir dans la cité de Kiwanja sur une éventuelle avancée des FARDC de Rwindi vers Kiwanja en passant par le pont Mabenga se sont confirmées ce matin. De violents combats ont en effet eu lieu toute la journée durant sur cet axe. Alors que la cité de Kiwanja s’était réveillée dans un calme relatif, malgré la tension perceptible, et que les élèves avaient pris le chemin de l’école, la situation a vite dégénéré. Les bombardements que l’on entendait au loin, vers Mabenga, se sont intensifiés et des crépitements des tirs à l’arme automatique se sont approchés dangereusement de la cité. 

944307_660786760608801_63719421_n dans UmutekanoEt le sauve qui peut s’en est suivi. Les quelques rares rebelles encore visibles dans la cité ont commencé à dire, pour calmer la population, que ce sont les M23 qui venaient d’infliger une lourde défaite aux FARDC alors qu’il n’en était rien. Pendant que la guerre faisait rage à Mabenga et Kaunga entre les M23 et leurs alliés (que nos sources qualifient de mercenaires ougandais et des soldats RDF), les jeunes d’un groupe armé Mai-Mai anti-M23 ont attaqué les quelques positions M23 dégarnies dans la cité de Kiwanja et à Rutshuru-Centre. En ce moment, les FARDC sont en progression vers Kiwanja tandis que les M23 & alliés pris entre deux feux ne savent plus où aller. Décidément la zone M23 est en ébullition de toutes parts.
Malheureusement, ce soir depuis 17h30, aucun de nos correspondants à Kiwanja n’est joignable par téléphone. Le réseau Airtel a vu son signal coupé dans la zone de Rutshuru depuis 11h, heure locale. Le réseau Tigo qui passait encore semble également avoir des problèmes. Nous attendons avoir plus de précision dans la nuit.

1384093_1385402345030418_525727968_n dans Umutekano

En attendant, l’on signale des combats dans les environs du Camp de Rumangabo, autour de Katale et Rubare en territoire de Rutshuru. Les heures du M23 seraient-elles comptées ? En tout cas pour le porte-parole des FARDC, le Colonnel Olivier AMULI, les M23 n’ont d’autre choix que de « déposer les armes ». Signalons en passant que le Gouverneur et le Vice-Gouverneur de Province du Nord-Kivu, Julien PALUKU et Feller LUTAITSHIRWA, s’est rendu dans la plaine de Kibumba (Kibaya) se rendre compte lui-même du travail abattu par les FARDC.944307_660786760608801_63719421_n dans Umutekano
A Goma, la situation reste calme et la vie poursuit son cours normal. La joie est perceptible sur les visages des gomatraciennes et gomatraciens qui caressent déjà le rêve de se rendre dès la semaine prochaine à Kibumba et Rutshusu tandis qu’un douanier rencontré cet après-midi espère regagner son poste d’attache dans les tous prochains jours à Bunagana quand l’on en parlera plus des M23 dans le coin. Pour tout le monde, pas question de revenir à Kampala pour des négociations qualifiées d’INUTILE, comme le recommande Kobler… Il est temps que les déplacés rentrent dans leurs villages…

Dr. Theogene Rudasingwa testifies in Spain
Dr. Theogene Rudasingwa
Dr. Theogene Rudasingwa

(WASHINGTON DC) - In a brief statement on social media today, Dr. Theogene Rudasingwa, founding member of the Rwanda National Congress, made the following statement:
PRESIDENT PAUL KAGAME RESPONSIBLE FOR THE KILLING OF NINE SPANISH CITIZENS
Today, 14/10/2013, I appeared before the Spanish Investigative Judge Andreu Merelles to testify that President Paul Kagame is responsible for the death of nine Spanish citizens.
Dr. Theogene Rudasingwa Madrid, Spain
Dr. Rudasingwa testified in three specific areas before Judge Andreu Merelles covering the downing of former President Habyarimana’s plane in April 1994 killing two sitting heads of state as well as the French crew aboard the plane. Further, he testified about Tri-star Investments and the case of the nine Spanish nationals who were killed by the RPF/RPA in Rwanda.
The Spanish newspaper, El Pais, reported in Spanish that, “according to legal sources, the information contributed by Rudasingwa was "very important" for the murders of the four Spanish monks in October 1996. He also cited the names of several of the military processed by Judge Andreu and who are under international search warrants, such as James Kabarebe, current Rwandan defense minister, Karake Karenzi and Jack Nziza.”
Dr. Rudasingwa testified about the company Tri-Star Investment, founded by himself, and he stated that this is the main tool for money laundering and abuse of natural resources in Rwanda.”

Gerald Gahima
Dr. Rudasingwa stated, "To achieve a genuine reconciliation, you first need to know the whole truth. The opposition is reinforced and it is not disposable. An uprising in the medium term. The country seems safe and peaceful, but is more divided than ever because a minority within a minority controls the political, military and economic oppressing and marginalizing the Tutsis and moderate Hutus . In five years we will have a civil war again."
Dr. Gerald Gahima spoke exclusively to this reporter about today’s development and his role in this case before the Spanish courts in the past. Dr. Gahima stated that he represented General Kayumba Nyamwasa and met with the judge who wanted to question him about the Rwanda Briefing and other issues.
He stated that, “The judge wants to speak with Kayumba Nyamwasa as well but due to inter-country agreements that has not been possible” but stated that General Nyamwasa is willing to speak with him. This reporter asked Dr. Gahima if he believes that the qualification of genocide and crimes against humanity can be applied to this case. He replied that the case is broad and covers the entire military from 1990 to the RPF wars in the Congo.
Such a case would take a lot time and vast research effort in order to thoroughly investigate, as well as large amounts of resources in order to be properly prosecuted. He emphasized that this case is too broad in scope and therefore appears to be an overwhelming task.
When I specifically asked Dr. Gahima what he knows about those killings of the Spanish nationals, when it happened and who was involved he was unable to reply due to his ongoing involvement in this case.
When I specifically asked Dr. Gahima what he knows about those killings of the Spanish nationals, when it happened and who was involved he was unable to reply due to his ongoing involvement in this case.
In his specific role of Attorney General in Rwanda from 1999-2003 I questioned why he never prosecuted those crimes while in this top position in the Rwandan Government. He replied that, “As soon as we got into Rwanda the law was changed. The RPF could not investigate itself and then hold its own members accountable. This is not a credible system of accountability for any country, including Rwanda.”
Dr. Gahima stated, “I am personally critical of the case. Its starting point is that the RPF struggle was a criminal enterprise from the very beginning. I definitely do not subscribe to that view.
When I asked him for more details on this statement he replied, “While there are Spanish victims of RPF abuses who deserve justice, the scope of the case as a whole is in my opinion too sweeping for the case to be a credible judicial process. Over the years, the case has become a dumping ground for real and imagined grievances of opponents of the RPA / RPF.”

Dr. Gahima stated that President Kagame has been “struck off” the case because he is a sitting head of state.
Some have said that the Spanish case is potentially groundbreaking because it is focusing on crimes blamed on President Kagame and his forces, something that a United Nations tribunal set up in 1994 to prosecute war crimes in Rwanda yet did not do.
I asked Dr. Gahima if he agreed with this analysis, he replied the following, “It is the first time that crimes alleged to be committed by the RPF would be tried by an independent, outside justice system. It is not credible that the RPF can investigate its own members. Yet, this situation is not unique to Rwanda.
"After the signing of the Rome statue, the US government made sure that provisions were in place so that US soldiers would never be brought to justice for actions taken during times of war.
"Therefore, it is not new to Rwanda that they do not want to hold their own soldiers accountable in a court of law. This is why the international criminal justice system is necessary in order to provide an independent judicial review for such situations."
When I asked Dr. Gahima what he thought should happen with this case at this point and if the Spanish courts should drop the case or continue to pursue it; he replied the following, "I think they should continue to prosecute it but, personally, I do not think there has been an adequate investigation. Nor do I believe they have the moral right to bring foreigners into their courts when they have not prosecuted their own citizens for crimes committed in their own countries.
"If you do not allow your own courts to deal with the violence of your own past then what right do you have to deal with the crimes committed by other nations? Spain and Portugal are young democracies and democracy takes time to have a stronghold so I am not surprised they have not dealt with the violence of their past.”
When asked what he believes this testimony will do for the case at this point he replied, "Most of the war was not in the military but it was on the diplomatic front."
Some are speculating that the actions of both Dr. Gahima and Dr. Rudasingwa have been to secure General Kayumba Nyamwasa being excused from this indictment.
Dr. Gahima replied to this that, "General Nyamwasa was not in Rwanda during the time of these charges against him he was not in Rwanda at the time the crimes were committed. Therefore, he could not have been in command of the units to have committed the crimes for which he is accused, including those in Congo."
He stated that this evidence is documented "in his passport and other official papers".

Toronto - It is simply too embarrassing for Paul Kagame to visit the West anymore, as eager as the Rwandan president is to pose as a respected African statesman. His visit to Toronto last month was stirring evidence of this.
On September 28, the president slipped into Toronto the Good to meet with members of the Rwandan diaspora and celebrate ‘Rwanda Day’. The Canadian government had gone to great lengths to avoid commenting on the private visit, except to say that if the leader did set foot in the country, the RCMP and local police would be obliged to provide security, since as head of state he qualified as an internationally protected person. But it is hard to shield a man whose reputation precedes him.

By mid morning on the Saturday in question, a few hundred Rwandan and Congolese protesters were staking out the Sheraton Hotel on Queen Street, right across from Nathan Philips Square where they suspected Kagame and his delegation were staying. The protesters called for the president’s arrest on war crimes charges, unleashing recordings of sirens and shouting epithets with megaphones that the hotel was harboring a mass killer inside, as red-faced staff and patrons looked on in disbelief. Meanwhile, police officers – a few wearing goofy navy blue shorts and others in trademark cargo pants -- escorted protesters out of the hotel’s car park and onto the street.

Demonstrators held placards sprayed in paint the colour of blood, their posters displaying orphans, corpses and three progressive politicians languishing in Kigali jails: Victoire Ingabire, a Hutu mother and leader of the United Democratic Forces, Deo Mushayidi, a Tutsi opposition leader slapped with a life sentence, and Bernard Ntaganda, leader of the opposition PS Imberakuri, jailed on murky charges of ‘divisionism’. A good number of protesters were victims of lethal military campaigns carried out by Kagame’s Tutsi-led Rwandan Patriotic Army (RPA) since the early 1990s.
 One man and his family narrowly survived the Kibeho massacre in April 1995 when Rwandan soldiers shot into crowds at a displacement camp. Shortly after returning to his native village in Kigali rural, his wife and baby boy were slaughtered by Kagame’s troops, he said, and dumped in their outhouse. Another man of mixed Tutsi and Hutu ethnicity lost his parents and siblings in neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo after being hunted by RPA soldiers across a territory the size of Western Europe. Another man, small in stature, was orphaned at the age of six after losing his family during the Congo chase in 1996-1997. Left to fend for himself in the dense equatorial jungle, he ate whatever he could get his hands on and continued to run way from the killers until taken in by a local Congolese family. Their stories spilled out fast and furiously, amid the sirens that blared in a normally restrained city known for its Victorian mores.

The demonstration, while vitriolic, could have been worse; relatively few protesters actually showed up compared to the thousands that organizers had hoped for. That’s because Kagame shrewdly kept the venue under wraps all day. On its website, the Rwandan embassy in Ottawa urged supporters to come to Toronto to celebrate Rwanda’s economic and social progress since the genocide, but failed to disclose the location of the meeting. In the end, scores of finely dressed and well coiffed Rwandans were flown in and put up at the posh Westin Harbour Castle along the shores of Lake Ontario while other Rwandan Canadians wishing to see their leader in person were privately contacted and given transport to the event. By mid afternoon, social media had leaked information that the president would be speaking at an arena at Downsview Park in a barren neighborhood of northwestern Toronto where RCMP and Toronto police maintained a heavy presence. Hardcore critics quickly converged on the park, their faux blood dripping banners reading: ‘Kagame Kills Babies’ and ‘Kagame a murderer in the DRC.’ When the presidential car finally arrived, the protesters chanted and threw eggs and stones, managing to crack a window as the vehicle veered past the security barricade.
At the same time a group of naked Quebecois feminists appeared out of nowhere like fiery leprechauns, their white breasts painted with ‘Kagame Guilty of Rape’ and ‘Rapist Go Fuck Yourself’ – a reference to a militia called M23 that Rwanda has supported in the Congo whose members have raped, killed and displaced thousands of civilians. The entire scene was humiliating, especially for a head of state once courted by western governments, diplomats and human rights activists. In Toronto, Kagame appeared to be in survival mode. Not that he doesn’t maintain a coterie of loyal fans: among them former US President Bill Clinton, former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, Bono, Howard Buffet, Evangelical Pastor Rick Warren and Rabbi Shmuley Boteach. And that’s because Kagame’s achievements, while far too historicized, remain intact. He is rightly credited with routing Hutu extremists responsible for a three-month killing spree whose primary targets were the country’s minority Tutsi.
These extremists, drawn from members of the former Hutu government, army and militia -- and backed by willing executioners among Rwanda’s peasantry -- were intent on exterminating Tutsis individually and as a group, and went about slaughtering a great number of Hutu dissenters that got in their way. The victims of this genocide are estimated to be in the several hundreds of thousands. Except that isn’t the entire story. Kagame and his formidable entourage know this. Many Rwandan academics know and acknowledge it. The International Criminal Court for Rwanda, set up in the aftermath of the genocide, knows it as well, yet refuses to acknowledge or act on it.
The Rwandan president has cleverly gambled on the West believing a binary narrative of good versus evil in Rwanda. Others in the West who know better – including officials in Washington and London -- chose a cynical calculus after the genocide: that despite his dubious past, Kagame was the best guarantor of stability in a sea of ethnic extremism. Except the calculus appears to have been dangerously wrong. How do we know? Because a growing number of Hutus and RPA defectors are now seeking to expose a fuller, if not grimmer account of what really happened in Rwanda before and after Kagame's ascent to power. What has emerged is an historical portrait of an army under Kagame’s direction that engaged in mass killing of unarmed Hutu civilians, before, during and after the genocide.
Victims and critics tell of his army displacing upwards of a million people in northern Rwanda before the genocide, of carrying out a campaign to bring war to the population, firing on displacement camps and assassinating Hutu political opponents. They also say that as soon as the genocide was unleashed in April 1994, RPA death squads began highly organized ‘sweeping’ operations in the northern and eastern prefectures of Byumba and Kibungo, hunting down Hutu men, women and children in their homes, in swamps and on plantations, killing them on the spot or calling them to meetings and slaughtering them there. Two of Kagame’s senior officers, now generals that have served as UN peacekeepers in high profile missions in Africa, allegedly commanded these gruesome operations, the objective of which was to exterminate as many Hutus as possible, according to ex RPA soldiers. In 1994, the United Nations conducted a partial investigation of these war crimes, under a team led by a US consultant named Robert Gersony.


A UN cable released anonymously gives an account of Gersony’s findings: “In a two-hour briefing, Gersony put forward evidence of what he described as calculated, pre-planned, systematic atrocities and genocide against Hutus by the RPA whose methodology and scale, he concluded, (30,000 massacres) could only have been part of a plan implemented as a policy from the highest echelons of the government. In his view, these were not individual cases of revenge and summary trials but a pre-planned, systematic genocide against the Hutus. Gersony staked his 25-year reputation on his conclusions which he recognized were diametrically opposite to the assumptions made, so far, by the UN and the international community.”
Kagame's future
The United Nations chose to bury Gersony’s explosive report in an effort to provide political cover for Kagame and his newly installed government. Estimates of those killed by the RPA during the genocide and thereafter in areas such as Gitarama, Butare, Kibuye, Gikongoro, Cyangugu, Goma and Ruhengeri are dramatically higher. Officers have spoken of Hutu male recruits being rounded up, put into trucks and driven at night to various killing grounds near the Gabiro Training barracks and elsewhere in Akagera National Park, where they were dumped and burned, their ashes mixed with soil or spread across the park’s lakes. Estimates of hundred of thousands of Hutus killed by Kagame’s army in this manner for years do not come from Hutus themselves, but from former officers and soldiers of his own Tutsi-led army who could no longer stomach the atrocities committed by their regime.
One senior officer that was close to the Gabiro operations said he believed the crimes amounted to genocide. “This is going to come back. This is going to be generational,” the officer said with trepidation. But all these crimes are history now, as Kagame scrambles to maintain his flagging legitimacy abroad and his grip on power at home and in eastern Congo, where his army first invaded in 1996, and militias he's supported have stoked war ever since. In 2003, Rwanda passed a controversial law that condemns individuals for denying or grossly minimizing genocide, or attempting to justify genocide or destroy evidence related to it. Individuals found guilty are liable to a minimum of 10 years and a maximum of 20 in prison.
Ironically, as the scale of RPA operations during the 1990s becomes clearer, it could be argued that the Rwandan president should at least be tried for genocide denial, if nothing else. But of course the current law forbids denying only the official genocide that we all know and recognize, the one perpetrated by Hutu extremists against Tutsis. So for now, as long as Kagame stays at home and can control the levers of judiciary, government and his army, he may have many years still ahead.


The Truth can be buried and stomped into the ground where none can see, yet eventually it will, like a seed, break through the surface once again far more potent than ever, and Nothing can stop it. Truth can be suppressed for a "time", yet It cannot be destroyed. ==> Wolverine
