Paul Kagame in front of ranks
While other numerous leaders have wished the best to their constituencies, President Kagame seems to have a different vision.
In his message to the army and police, Kagame has warned his forces to stay standby because 2014 will bring so many challenges, but he relies on their discipline and determination in order to win.
Many people are wondering what this man is planning or what kind of information he has that makes him prophetize the doom. The message does nothing but scare more the people of Rwanda who since years have been fleeing the country because the danger seems unavoidable as long as Kagame’s regime remains.
Kagame who is well know for his warlike spirit, never says anything without pursuing it. In 1995, he said he was going to attack Hutu refugee camps in Congo, one year after so many refugees were killed in camps supposedly to be under protection of the UN high Commission for Refugees. It was the first open attack against civilian population in history but the UN remained dumb. Even the so called international human rights groups did very little to condemn such atrocities. Afterwards, Kagame cried tears in front of the national assembly regretting that he was not able to exterminate the Hutu refugees.
In 2010 after the foundation of Rwanda National Congress, an opposition created and led by four main former allies of Kagame’s, namely General Kayumba Nyamwasa, Colonel Patrick Karegeya (RIP), Major Dr Theogene Rudasingwa, and Dr Gerald Gahima, Kagame pledged to kill them. Yesterday Col Karegeya was found in Michelangelo Towers Hotel in Johannesbourg, fulfilling Kagame’s promise. Other opponents to Kagame live in extreme caution asking countries that granted them hospitality to stay watchful since the strong man of Kigali has no jokes. General Kayumba Nyamwasa survived two assassination attempts in South Africa cases in which the police has found eminent involvement of Rwandan intelligence operatives.
As the man said, let us stay standby.
