The Rwandan government should not fear an independent and fair justice system of Spain

 René Claudel Mugenzi

The Belmarsh high security prison in South East London has recently entertained a new resident for a few days before he appeared in front of Westminster Magistrates’ Court for an extradition court hearing last month.

This VIP was a Rwandan Army General Emmanuel Karenzi Karake, number three on the list of the 40 Rwanda Patriotic Army (RPA) presumed to have committed war crimes and crimes against humanity by a Spanish judge.

Prison cells or house arrest are not General Karake’s unfamiliar places as he was previously arrested and imprisoned in Rwanda.

His arrest in London should have enthused and excited him and Rwandan government supporters because, for the first time General Karake will get an opportunity of a fair trial and a legal process through which he will be able to challenge allegations of crimes against him and his colleagues which he and his government have always labelled  ‘’unfounded’’ and political motivated.

Observing the recent history of Rwanda with an ordinary eye, it is apparent that Rwandan government officials fear the justice and that could be a reason why they failed to build a genuine justice system in Rwanda for Rwandans. Their precarious reactions demonstrate how they have forgotten that unlike their country other many countries including UK and Spain have independent and fair justice system.

Each time a Rwandan government official is suspected to have committed crimes against humanity or war crimes, or each time they had to appear in a court of law in a foreign country, Rwandan population were forced to go on streets of Kigali to protest against those accusations. These protests objectives are unfortunately not designed to legally challenge those accusations but to bully and intimidate those who are making those accusations in order to silence them, pressure them change their mind (including begging for forgiveness) or destroy their reputations.

We can easily recall the scenery of streets in Rwanda after the arrest of Colonel Rose Kabuye in Germany in 2008, when the UN published its DRC UN Mapping Report and the aftermath of the airing of the BBC documentary ‘’Rwanda Untold Story ‘’ which challenged the current Rwandan government narrative of what happened during 1994 Genocide including witnesses that accused the current president Paul Kagame to have ordered the assassination of the former president Juvenal Habyalimana.

If the current Rwandan government really aspire for end of impunity, truth and justice in Rwanda, they should seek to join forces with Spanish prosecutors, collaborate with them in order to shed light on what really happened to all those who were killed that are part of the Spanish indictment.

The best way to challenge accusations against them should be through courts not through calling Spanish judges FDLR collaborators or through forcing populations to go on streets obstructing their everyday activities that bring livelihoods to them.

Dignity, Agaciro, Ishema, and other slogans mostly used by RPF officials are pure parody, they never match their actions.

Considering past experiences, it was easy to predict types of Rwandan government reactions following the General Karake arrest. These predictions include mass protests and attack on the West accusing them to have looked away when a genocide was happening, etc,..

But no one could have predicted this new tactic of playing the race card, portraying the arrest of General Karake as an action ‘’to demean Africans’’. President Kagame went far to say that ‘’ Karake might have been mistaken as an illegal immigrant ”and that ”Africans and black people have become targets for shooting practices”. This spin aims to portray the west a bunch of racists that have no respect of African people and that the action of arresting General Karake has been driven by those racism views. By going this Kagame hope to unite Africans behind his campaign to get General Karake released.

I wonder how many Africans have been arrested in UK or in Europe in the last 100 years accused of similar crimes.

On contrary the current Rwandan government has a documented track record of ‘’ demeaning Africans’’ by committing mass massacres of populations in DRC and massacres of Rwandan refugees in DRC as a UN investigation team reported as partof DRC mapping report published in October 2010 and other reports of various human rights organisations.

General Karake is in good hands of United Kingdom Justice system. He will be eventually handed to Spanish judges if Westminster magistrate court found that all required conditions are met.

Rwandans, Congolese and Spanish who were previously hopeless and desperate to get justice one day of their loved ones, should express gratitude to the Spanish judge and to United Kingdom police for respectively issuing an arrest warrant and arresting General Karake.

These actions gave them hope, that one day their loves ones who were massacred will get justice as well as hope that one day they will see the end of enduring impunity; which is the only ”African demeaning” action in this situation.

Rwanda: Ni koko FPR yaribohoye, ari na ko iboha abandi.

Kuwa gatandatu tariki ya 04 Nyakanga 2015, mu Rwanda bizihije isabukuru ya 21 y’umunsi inyeshyamba za FPR-Inkotanyi zafashe umujyi wa Kigali, maze guhera icyo gihe zikiyambika izina ry’ingabo z’ u Rwanda. Uwo munsi FPR yawubatije umunsi wo KWIBOHORA.

Ukurikiye ijambo Perezida Paul Kagame yagejeje ku bari bitabirie uwo munsi, ukirengagiza ibibera mu Rwanda, wakeka ko koko Paul Kagame ari umusaza ufite amanota meza mu miyoborere myiza. Gusa rero ntibishoboka ko wakumva ibyo umuyobozi wa Politiki avuga ngo ureke kubigereranya n’uburyo abishyira mu bikorwa. Ibi byombi (imvugo n’ibikorwa) iyo ubihuje uratangara cyane ndetse ukibaza niba Kagame  atari indyarya  cyangwa se umugome cyangwa byombi uko ari bibiri.

  1. Ngo inyungu zo kwibohora zikwiye kuba iza bose !

Ibi Kagame yabivuze agitangira ijambo abeshya abaturage ko ibyo FPR yaba yaragezeho bisaranganyijwe mu baturage bose. Nyamara ibi bitandukanye cyane n’ibyo rubanda ibona. Abaturage bamaze imyaka 21 bategereje ko na bo bahabwa agaciro nk’ikiremwamutu, bakavuga ikibari ku mutima, bakagira uruhare mu kwishyiriraho abayobozi, bagahabwa ubutabera mu gihe babukeneye, bakarindirwa umutekano n’ingabo za leta,… ariko ibi barabibuze. Kubera ko bo batibohoye!

Abaturage bambuwe ijambo risigaranwa n’abantu bake cyane bari mu gatsiko akenshi k’abantu baturutse mu gihugu cya Uganda ari na yo mpamvu dukunda kukita agatsiko sajya. Aba ni bo bavuga rikijyana bakemeza igikwiye gukorwa batabajije rubanda, bakaka amakoro atagira fagitire, bakambura rubanda utwabo, bagahabwa amasoko yose, bagahabwa akazi keza batagahataniye, bagateza cyamunara ibya rubanda kandi bakabigura ku mafaranga y’intica ntikize. Aba nyine nibo bemerewe gufata inguzanyo mu mabanki, bagakora ubucuruzi butandukanye bagakurirwaho amahoro ku bitumizwa mu mahanga, bakarya imbuto zo kwibohoza rubanda yicira isazi mu jisho. Ibi ni byo bigaragaza ko FPR yibohoje ariko ikaboha abandi.

Avuga ku banenga u Rwanda ku bikorwa bibi rukora, Kagame yibasiye abanyamahanga ngo bashaka kumuha amasomo. Aha cyane cyane yaciye amarenga avuga Perezida w’ Ubufaransa.

Aha naho harimo uburyarya bukabije. Hashize imyaka myinshi abantu babwira FPR bati mureke twubake igihugu kigendera ku btekerezo bitandukanye , habeho opozisiyo yo gufasha kunenga ibitagenda kugira ngo bikosorwe, ariko Kagame yavuniye ibiti mu matwi. Yewe na bamwe mu babigerageje yabataye mu kagozi arafunga ajugunya imfunguzo!ingabire v

Ingabire Victoire na we yaraboshywe

Aha umuntu akibaza ati ese uyu muntu uvuga ko ashaka kumva abamunenga kugira ngo akosore ibifutamye, nyamara bamunenga akabamarira ku munigo, aho ntakwiye gushakirwa umuti?

  1. Ngo kwibohora ni uguhaguruka ugahangana

Mu gusoza ijambo rye, Kagame yavuze ikintu gikomeye cyane aho yemezaga ko kwibohora ari ukwiyemeza guhangana. Iki nicyo gikenewe. Uyu munsi rubanda imaze kurambirwa ubugizi bwa nabi bw’ingoma ya FPR irasabwa koko gushirika ubwoba no guhaguruka igahangana n’abibohoye ariko yo bakayiboha. Nta wundi muti uzaboneka niba nyine hari abacyumva ko hari ubibabereyemo bo bakananirwa guhangana. Uburenganzira buraharanirwa nta we ubuhabwa ku isahani. Ubushaka wese nta yindi nzira anyuramo atiyemeje guhangana n’ababumubuza.

  1. Umusozo: Hakenewe iki?

Hari igihe Kagame avuga amagambo afite akenge rwose. Aho bipfira ni uburyo ayo magambo ashyirwa mu bikorwa. Igikenewe ni ugukora ikiri cyiza aho kucyivuga gusa usa n’aho hari abo ushaka gushimisha.

  1. Hakenewe ko abanyarwanda baca ukubiri n’umuco wo kubeshya Kagame bakamubwiza ukuri ku bibi we akora cyangwa ibyo ubutegetsi bwe bukora arebera ntagire icyo abikosoraho. Ibi kandi bikwiye kuba kuri buri mutegetsi wese washaka kubeshya muri ya politiki yo gutekinika no gutera igipindi. Uyu akwiye kubwizwa ukuri no kwamaganwa kuko igihugu kidashobora gutera imbere hari abagihishira ikibi.
  2. Hakenewe umuco mushya wo guharanira kubaka opozisiyo ihabwa ubushobozi kugira ngo ibashe kunenga Leta iriho ndetse yitegure kuyisimbura mu gihe Leta idakorera neza abaturage.
  3. Hakenewe gusenya FORUM y’amashyaka ngo igamije kwumvikana ku bibazo by’igihugu ahubwo amashyaka akajya asuzumira ibyo bibazo mu nteko ishinga amategeko (ku karubanda) buri munyarwanda agakurikirana en direct uburyo ayo mashyaka ajya impaka aharanira ineza y’igihugu n’abenegihugu.
  4. Hakenewe gutandukanya FPR n’igihugu. FPR ni ishyaka rihuriwemo na bamwe mu Banyarwanda kandi siryo rigize igihugu ryonyine. Buri wese bimujye mu mutwe ko kwamagana ububi bwa FPR atari ukwamagana igihugu ahubwo ko ari uguharanira ko u Rwanda rwagira imiyoborere myiza ishingiye ku guteza imbere inyungu za buri munyarwanda.
  5. Hakenewe kureba kure buri wese agaharanira inyungu z’igihugu aho kureba inyungu ze. Niba koko mukunda igihugu nimutekereze uko undi we amerewe, uko ibyemezo mufata bimugiraho ingaruka, uko kwibuka “ukwibohora” abyishimira cyangwa bimurya ahantu, uko igihugu kizaba kimeze mu gihe mwe muzaba mutakiriho.
  6. Iminsi mikuru yo “kwibohora” n’umunsi ngo “w’intwari” si iminsi mikuru y’igihugu ahubwo ni iminsi mikuru ya FPR. Bityo rero ikwiye gukurwaho hakajya hizihizwa gusa iminsi abanyarwanda bose bahuriyeho mu mateka. Aha twavuga nk’itariki ya mbere Nyakanga aho u Rwanda rwazamuye ibendera ryarwo iry’abazungu rikamanurwa.

Mbifurije kugira ISHEMA ryo kuba Abanyarwanda.

Ni FPR ikeneye abayishya cyangwa ni Nduhungirehe Olivier wiyemeje kubeshya FPR ngo ayirohe? Arabeshya abanyarwanda ngo bizere ibitangaza? Ibaze nawe!

Ku cyumweru saa munani z’i Kigali nakurikiye ikiganiro kuri radiyo Isango Star aho Nduhungirehe Olivier yasobanuraga iby’itabwa muri yombi rya Karake Karenzi. Akihagera yatangiye asobanura ko mandats z’aba Espagnoles intepol yazanze kubera ko ari politiki nsansa, avuga ko ngo ari FDLR iziri inyuma, ndetse avuga ko n’urukiko rukuru rwo muri Espagne rwazitesheje agaciro. Solange Ayanone wamubazaga ati ibyo byanditse he, Nduhungirehe ati ni ko bimeze, Ayanone ati ubwo urumva, u Bwongeleza, igihugu cy’inshuti, niba gifata umuntu ukomeye nka Karenzi, usanzwe ajyayo, ubwo urumva diplomatie y’u Rwanda idakora nabi?

Nduhungireho

Olivier Nduhungirehe ni umukozi wa Ministeri y’ububanyi n’amahanga

Nduhungirehe ati hari byinshi byakozwe ni na yo mpamvu izi mandats zateshejwe agaciro. Umunyamakuru ati kuki se ziteshwa agaciro abantu bagakomeza gufatwa? Nduhungirehe arya iminwa. Kera kabaye Ayanone Solange yaje gusoma ubutumwa bw’abakurikiye ikiganiro, avugamo uwitwa Nkubito wari wanditse ko Nduhungirehe abeshya, iyo avuga ko ko interpol yanze ziriya mandats, avuga ko nta nyandiko n’imwe formel yigeze isohorwa na interpol yamagana mandats z’aba espagnoles, ndetse Nkubito yongeyeho ati: Nduhungirehe ni umuhanga, aramutse afite inyandiko nk’iyo ntiyaza mu kiganiro nk’iki atayitwaje.

Ku kibazo cy’urukiko rwatesheje mandats agaciro, Nkubito yari yanditse ko nta rukiko rwavanyeho mandats, ko urukiko rwahagaritse gukurikirana abanyamahanga bishe abanyamahanga keretse baramutse bari muri Espagne. Akongeraho ko urukiko ruzakurikirana uwo ari we wese uzaba yarishe umu Espagnole aho yaba ari hose, ati izi mandats rero zifite agaciro, ndetse zishobora no gufatisha umuntu igihe cyose abishwe, victims ari aba espagnoles. Ayanone yasomye umwanzuro w’urukiko mu gifaransa uko nkubito yari yawutanze avuga ko “Désormais, la justice espagnole ne sera compétente que dans le cas où il existe des victimes espagnoles ou que les responsables suspectés se trouvent en Espagne. ”

Ku ifatwa rya Karenzi Karake, Nkubito yavugaga ko Karenzi yaje mu Bwongeleza kabiri mu kazi, ariko ko ejo bundi yafashwe yaje kwivuza.

Nduhungirehe aho gusubiza, yahise atera hejuru ngo bamwe mu banditse ndanabanzi, Nkubito Jean Claude ndamuzi, ngo we se ni iyihe nyandiko afite yemeza ko interpol yemeye izo mandats.? Ahita asakuriza hejuru kubera ikimwaro sans doute,(dore ko atava ku izima) agerageza gupfukirana ibinyoma yari amaze gukwiza mu banyarwanda ngo mandats zarahagaritswe kandi arabizi neza arabeshya. N’ikimenyimenyi, Karenzi Karake se ubu ntari mu kagozi kubera zo? Nduhungirehe yanavuze ngo mandats z’abafaransa na zo zavuyeho ra? ! Uriya muhungu agomba kuba afite mission yo kubeshya HE Paul Kagame si gusa! Ariko se akaba yarabitumwe na nde koko?Ese yaba agamije iki? Yaba ari gahunda yihaye se yo kwimika ubujiji?
Uwo Nkubito avuga se yaba ari JC Nkubito w’umunyamakuru?
