Press Statement

Jen Psaki
Department Spokesperson
Washington, DC
September 25, 2014

The United States expresses its deep concern regarding the discovery of a number of corpses in July and August of this year, some bound and wrapped in plastic, in Lake Rweru, which borders Burundi and Rwanda. We note that several countries also raised their concern about these deaths during the Interactive Dialogue with the Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances that was held in conjunction with the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva on September 12.

We urgently call on the Burundian and Rwandan Governments to conduct a prompt, thorough, and impartial and concerted investigation of these deaths with the assistance of independent, international forensic experts.

We firmly believe that these victims deserve to be identified, their families deserve to know their fate, and those responsible should be brought to justice.

    ABANDIKA IBITABO BAKITA NO KUMATEKA YA DEMOKARASI MU RWANDA, MUZIRIKANE KO URUBUGA “Democracy_Human_Rights@yahoogroupes.fr” BAMWE BAKUNZE KWITA “DHR” ARI URUBUGA RW’ABA CDR HUTU Nk’UKO JEAN BAPTISTE MBERABAHIZI AHERUTSE KUBYANDIKIRA TWAGIRAMUNGU Innocent KUMUGARAGARO. ABEMERERWA KURWISANZURAHO NI ABA MRND, FPR, abakiga (Ruhengeri-Gisenyi), n’aba CDR tutsi hamwe n’abakunda ibitekerezo by’abo bose ndetse n’abakomoka muri ayo mashyaka kuko ayo mashya yose afite icyo ahuriyeho. USHAKA ASUZUME AMATEKA YA RURIYA RUBUGA ARASANGA KO ARI GUTYO YAGIYE yiyandika

    Bwana Gasana Anastaze,

    Nk’uko buri gihe inzira za demokarasi ziyubaka ariko zikagira n’andi mateka zigenda zandika, DHR ya Twagiramungu Innocent imaze kwiyandika ko ari urubuga ruvangura kandi rubereyeho kuvangura no kuragira FPR kugirango igumeho. Urubuga “Democracy_Human_Rights] <Democracy_Human_Rights@yahoogroupes.fr " rumaze kwigaragaza ko ari urubuga rw'aba CDR hutus nk'uko Mberabahizi aherutse kwandikira Twagiramungu Innocent kumugaragaro. Mberabahizi abyandika usanga yari afite ukuri kandi ni amateka yiyanditse murwego rw'igihugu kuko izi mbuga zifite uruhare rukomeye muri demokarasi y'u Rwanda na diaspora.

    Mukintu rero cyubatswe na CDR, ntabandi bantu bashobora kukidagaduramo uretse MRND, FPR, abakiga (Ruhengeri-Gisenyi), n'aba CDR tutsi hamwe n'abakunda ibitekerezo by'abo bose ndetse n'abakomoka muri ayo mashyaka. Abakora analyse ya politiki cyangwa bandika ibitabo, nibagera kukamaro k'imbuga muri ibi bihe turimo bazitonde bitegereze neza bazasanga abatageze bahungabanywa kuri DHR babarirwa muri iro organisations mbabwiye.

    Bwana Gasana Anastase rero, biragaragara ko propriétaire akaba na modérateur wa DHR ariwe Twagiramungu Innocent nawe yakuvanyeho cyangwa yagushyize muri modération kuko hari inyandiko zawe nyinshi zijya kuri Fondationbanyarwanda ariko ntizigere kuri DHR ako kanya nk'uko bisanzwe, ahubwo zikajyaho ari uko modérateur azirekuye. Wenda ubwo nanditse ibi ko byamenyekanye, ashobora guhindura akongera kureka zikagerayo, ariko abashaka musuzume.

    Ibyo ariko ntubitindeho kuko atari wowe wenyinye. Na FDU inkingi igipande cya Ndahayo Eugène ntabwo gifite uburenganzira bwo kwandika kuri DHR nino nabibonye kuko message zijya ahandi ariko kuri DHR ntizisohokeyo.

    Yewe hari n'amakuru nabonye aha kurubuga avuga ko Rutayisire Boniface nawe atacyandika kuri DHR kuko email ye bayivanyeho. Sinabo bonyine kuko hari n'abandi benshi cyane bagiye bavanwa kuri DHR igihe bigaragaye ko babangamiye umurongo w'ibitekerezo bya CDR na MRND cyangwa igihe barwanije ubwironde bw'abiyita abakiga bagirango abanyarwanda bose banganye uburenganzira.

    Gasana rero hamwe n'abandi banyarwanda bose baharanira ukuri, DHR na Twagiramungu Innocent mugomba kubandika kumurongo w'ibibazo bya politiki abanyarwanda bagomba gukemura, bityo mukabishakira umuti ukwiye. Igihe mwagera kugihugu gishyashya hari abantu nk'aba babangamira demokarasi mwakongera mugasubire mbere ya 1994 abanyarwanda bakongera bagatsembwa bagashira. Imikorere nk'iriya n'ibitekerezo nka biriya ntahandi bijya biganisha uretse gutsemba abanyarwanda. Ukwangiye kubaho mubitekerezo, akakwangira kubaho muri email ntashobora no kukwemerera kubaho mubuzima busanzwe igihe afite uburyo. Aho ninaho usanga Innocent Twagiramungu ibyo akora bishimisha cyane abantu na za organisations zaranzwego gutsemba abanyarwanda. Ikindi uzasangaho nuko uzabonaho abazungu cyane cyane babaye muri ayo mateka yo gushyigikira itsembwa ry'abanyarwanda n'ubwo babishyigikira bakoresheje guceceka no kutigaragaza igihe bikomeye. Ushatse DHR wayiha izina ry'ihuriro ry'aba CDR kandi ikaba ibagiro rya demokarasi y'u Rwanda n'abanyarwanda:

    Buri wese wandika kuri ruriya azirikane ko mumateka hari ibyo ashobora kuzabazwa kuko uba uri member w'ikintu kica kandi kirwanya demokarasi.

    Mwarabibonye ko iyo umuntu azanye amashagaga menshi yo kurwanya FPR byanze bikunze kuri DHR bamwiyenzaho muburyo runaka bakamwirukana cyangwa bakamushyira muri modération kugirango aceceke. Aho niho buri wese agomba kubonako DHR ibereyeho kuragira FPR mumahoro no mumutuzo kugirango ikomeze itsembe abanyarwanda. Ibyo ninabyo byereka buri wese ko burya aba CDR b'abatutsi bakorana n'aba CDR b'abahutu aho baba bari hose.

    Ba Gasana rero n'andi mwese murwanya ingoma y'igituhu kandi mukarwanya idéologie ya CDR, nimwifate en charge mwandike kuzindi mbuga mukoreshe n'ubundi buryo bushoboka muzatsinda. Nimucuke kuri DHR ibarenganya mubwire n'abandi be kuzagwa muri uwo mutego w'urupfu.

    Abakora analyse y'amateka y'u Rwanda nibashinge ijisho kuri icyo kintu bagicukumbure kandi bacyandike bihagije kugirango abanyarwanda n'abatuye isi bazamenye uko inzira ya demokarasi yagenze hamwe n'ingorane zose zayibayemo.

    Nta mpamvu yo kwiheba hari imbuga nyinshi harimo na ruriya rukomeye cyane rwa fondationbanyarwanda ( https://fr.groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/fondationbanyarwanda/ )

    runini cyane ruriho abantu bashobora kuba bagera kubihumbi bibiri kandi ruri actif ntirugire n'uwo ruvangura.

    Iyo uri muntambara ya demokarasi noneho amateka akagusaba kwibonera ibisubizo, urakenyera ukabishaka kandi ukemera ibyawe uko biri igihe ari byiza maze ukabyitaho, byanze bikunze bikubera umuti. None se mwebwe barababwira ko mubangamiye ideologie ya CDR mukanga mugaharanira kwandika kurubuga rwa CDR, muragirango se babareke mukomeze mubangamire iyo ideologie ya CDR kuri DHR ? Oya da, ariya mayira arafunze. Muba CDR nta demokarasi ihaba nta no gushyira mugaciro bihaba. uko guhezwa kuri DHR n'icyo amateka ababwira. Ubwo buri munyarwanda nabitere imboni kandi ntihagire ubifata kuburyo bujenjetse kuko kiriya ni ikibazo gikomereye u Rwanda n'isi. Nabwo kandi n'iyo DHR yabona abanyarwanda twatangiye kubihagurukira igashaka guhindura ntimugomba gushukika nk'abana kuko ibibi ruriya rubuga rumaze kwandika mumateka ya demokarasi ni byinshi cyane birahagije.

    Fervent partisan de l’unanimisme, du regionalisme, de l’ethnisme et de l’exclusion de l’autre purement et simplement parce qu’il est different de vous, vous vous evertuez a suggerer au moderateur d’exclure du DHR Messieurs Rutayisire Boniface et Anastase Gasana. Excede par l’intolerance et la haine que vous nourissez contre nous, vous oubliez que ce forum a ete cree pour mener des debats contradictoires et non pour l’UNANIMISME dont vous etes un partisan invetere. L’unanimisme est dangereux. Il sterilise les intelligences. Et ca, le moderateur le sait. Voici aussi , ci-apres, ce qu’il nous recommande tous, vous y compris:
    “CONSIDERATION, TOLERANCE, PATIENCE AND MUTUAL RESPECT towards the reinforcement of GOOD GOVERNANCE,DEMOCRACY and HUMAN RIGHTS in our states.

    En me referant a la mission qu’il a lui meme assigne au forum de discussion DHR, je ne pense pas qu’il suivra vos conseils.(Gasana Anastase, president du PRM/MRP-ABASNGIZI, un parti politique qui prone une politique de l’inclusion et du partage reel sincere et veritable du pouvoir entre toutes les composantes de la societe rwandaise sans exclusion aucune).
