Kagame lied over Volkswagen’s deal.

More embarrassing details have emerged about General Paul Kagame and Volkswagen deal. VW so-called manufacturing in Rwanda involves only installing glass and tires to the vehicles. The source of the details is Karim Naggar, chairperson of Kayan International Trade, agent of Volkswagen, Seat, and Skoda in Egypt. Naggar explained that VW in Rwanda is “just an assembly plant of simple car parts.” The Volkswagen factory in Rwanda “is limited to the installation of car glass and tires in addition to other simple work.” Therefore, VW cars in Rwanda have zero local content which no serious country promoting manufacturing, such as Egypt can allow. Naggar also ruled out the possibility of Rwanda exporting VW cars. VW cars in Rwanda “do not fall under the terms of the COMESA agreement.”

So, why did VW choose Rwanda?

Naggar explained that VW’s entry into Rwanda was mainly due to the generous support and facilities offered by the Rwandan government:

“Rwanda did not require manufacturing any local components of the German car locally, in addition the country provide the necessary infrastructure to establish the plant. Rwanda also provided customs and tax exemptions.”

In other words, VW paid zero taxes, and got free infrastructural support. And VW will not export. VW in Rwanda is essentially a chauffeured rental car company – and is listed as such. As of June 2019, VW had 21 cars in its rental services.

Kagame’s VW deal is a sham. Kagame’s main interest was to boast that Rwanda manufactures cars. Never mind that all VW in Rwanda does is to instal glass and tires to the vehicles shipped from South Africa. What a shame!

Rwanda: only 7 cabinet meetings but 42 abroad trips? Kagame enjoys travelling!

Kagame Held Only 7 Cabinet Meetings But Made 42 Foreign Trips In 2019

The world traveller who rules by remote control from foreign capitals

General Paul Kagame does not live in Rwanda. He is an absentee dictator who runs Rwanda from foreign capitals. Kagame has held only 7 cabinet meetings versus 42 foreign trips in 2019. This is insane. The closest to Kagame’s lifestyle is Cameroon president Paul Biya who runs his country from a Geneva hotel. Kagame is in fact worse than Biya. The latter at least stays in one place – Switzerland. Kagame is all over the world from Cape Town to Bonn, from Tokyo to Seattle, and all in between.

Here are the 7 times Kagame convened cabinet meetings with his ministers in 2019:

  1. October 10, 2019
  2. July 29, 2019
  3. June 24, 2019
  4. June 7, 2019
  5. April 24, 2019
  6. April 3, 2019
  7. January 28, 2019

But see how many foreign trips Kagame has made so far in the past 10 months – 42 trips outside Rwanda.

Here are Kagame’s foreign trips so far in 2019:

  1. Abidjan, Ivory Coast, October 14, 2019
  2. Marrakech, Morocco, October 12, 2019

Judi Rever vs “idiots utiles” de Paul KAGAME

FB_IMG_1570811472512Judi Rever vs « idiots utiles » de Paul Kagame

 

Le combat pour la vérité est un combat de tous les instants. Surtout lorsqu’il implique des enjeux importants doublés d’intérêts colossaux. Tous ceux qui ont travaillé sur le dossier des Grands Lacs, plus particulièrement sur le génocide rwandais, en adoptant une approche qui tranche avec la doxa officielle ont eu un jour à subir les foudres des thuriféraires de Paul Kagame, à défaut de subir le châtiment de ses sbires. Dès que vous interrogez l’histoire autrement, dès que vous commencez à poser des questions qui bousculent la vérité communément admise, dès que vous adoptez une lecture qui tranche avec la vérité officielle ou tenez un discours qui sort des sentiers tracés par le pouvoir tutsi du Rwanda, vous devenez l’homme ou la femme à abattre d’un groupe de gens ayant fait du génocide rwandais son fonds de commerce. Ils sont journalistes, universitaires, politiciens, militants des droits de l’homme et j’en passe. Les plus dangereux d’entre eux, ce sont les universitaires. Ceux-là mêmes qui se cachent derrière leurs titres pompeux de « spécialiste », d’historien et de je ne sais quoi encore pour enfumer, endoctriner, fabriquer le consentement de l’opinion et par-dessus tout censurer lorsque les trois autres approches ne produisent pas les effets escomptés.

Depuis quelques jours, la journaliste Judi Rever est l’objet d’attaques en tous genres de la part des thuriféraires belges et français de Paul Kagame. Programmée pour donner une série de conférences dans des universités belges, elle est la cible d’une opération de salissage et de déstabilisation qui ne dit pas son nom. À l’instar des méchants sorciers africains, ces « idiots utiles » de Kagame sont allergiques à la lumière de la vérité. Voilà pourquoi la présence de Judi en Belgique les rend fous. Pas plus tard que hier, un groupe hétéroclite composé d’universitaires, de scientifiques, de chercheurs, de journalistes et d’historiens, a adressé une lettre ouverte aux recteurs des universités KULeuven, UAntwerpen, VUB et au directeur dʼArtevelde hogeschool Gent, afin qu’ils annulent les conférences de Judi. Que comprendre de tout ça ?

Que des journalistes intellectuellement paresseux se comportent comme des « gangsters » en s’attaquant à une personne qui ne pense pas comme eux peut se comprendre. Mais que des universitaires et des gens se définissant comme des scientifiques adoptent une posture similaire surprend. En fait, il n’y a rien de surprenant quand on sait que certains de ces universitaires sont proches des milieux pro-Kagame de Bruxelles et de Paris et propagent des thèses dont la scientificité est sujette à caution. Pour la petite histoire, l’un des signataires de la lettre, l’universitaire britannique Linda Melvern, a été décorée par Paul Kagame pour « service rendu » à la nation rwandaise. Pas besoin de vous faire un dessin pour comprendre de quel service s’agit-il…

Bref. Qu’est-ce que tous ces gens reprochent-ils à Judi Rever ? Son honnêteté et sa rigueur intellectuelles. Parce que, faut-il dire, le génocide rwandais a fait naître en Occident un nouveau type de journalistes et d’universitaires, pour qui ce drame africain est devenu non seulement un fonds de commerce » sur lequel beaucoup ont bâti leur carrière, mais aussi l’objet non pas de recherches sérieuses, mais d’un militantisme quasi-compulsif qui tolère difficilement la contradiction. Voilà pourquoi les Africains ne doivent pas être impressionnés par des gens qui se drapent de titres pompeux, alors qu’ils ne sont rien de moins que des prostitués de l’intellectuel au service d’une cause nauséabonde, pour ne pas dire d’un tyran africain.

Ils n’ont encore rien vu. Les jours à venir seront extrêmement difficiles pour certains d’entre eux. Le combat pour la vérité continue…

Kagame stages a self-attack to justify his animosity towards opposition and Uganda!

PUZZLING FACTS ABOUT THE ALLEGED KINIGI-BURERA REBEL ATTACK IN RWANDA.

FB_IMG_1570485994649

Why would victimes be buried in mass grave while they have their own families?

President Paul Kagame’s junta appears to have staged an attack in Kinigi and Burera, Rwanda, in order to terrorize the predominantly Hutu population in the area and implicate Uganda, since Kinigi and Burera are more accessible from the Ugandan border then the DRC border.

Stunning facts:
1. The National Police issued a communiqué about the “attack” by “unknown” armed men immediately after it happened. At the same time, “Visit Rwanda” tourism promotion board issued a communiqué that the Virunga National Park was safe for tourists.
However:
(i) It’s unusual for Kagame’s junta to issue statements about rebel attacks so quickly.

(ii) The allegation was that the attackers came from or through Virunga National Park. How did Kagame’s tourism board so quickly ascertain that Virunga was safe?

2. The Rwanda National Police communiqué appeared in the international mainstream media immediately.
(i) Who could have shared Kagame’s police communique with the mainstream international media, if not Kagame’s junta?
(ii) Who had interest in getting Kagame’s Police communique in the mainstream media so hastily?

3. Per the national police communiqué, about 14 civilians were killed. However:
(i) No Rwandan family was seen in the media claiming that they lost a person during the attack.
(ii) No dead person was identified.
(iii) A day after the incident, Kagame’s junta paraded 14 or so coffins for “burial” in a mass grave. Neither the general public nor any relative of the dead were invited to view the bodies before the coffins were dumped into a mass grave, although burial in Rwanda is always a family affair.

4. The bodies of the alleged victims of the attack were buried in a mass grave. Nobody, including families that allegedly lost their beloved ones were allowed to view the bodies before burial.
(i) Why would the bodies of the “victims” of such an attack be buried in a mass grave instead of being returned to their respective family members for proper burial?
(ii) Why didn’t Kagame’s junta allow the families and community to view the dead bodies before burial?
(iii) Did the coffins buried in the mass grave contain dead bodies?
(iv) Why would security personnel control the burials of victims of an attack in an area that the government declared to be peaceful, where no family had to flee their home because of an attack in the area?

5. We are told that the victims were killed at their homes, yet:
(i) the identity of those families and the victims is apparently a top State secret,
(ii) no family took pictures during or after the shootings,
(iii) the time when those dead bodies were collected from the different families or places where they were killed is unknown and no pictures of the “collection” exercise were taken in this era of cellphone cameras and,
(iv) no known morgue received the dead bodies.

6. Kagame’s Police announced that about 9 people were seriously injured during the attack. However:
(i) Nobody knows the hospital where the injured were taken,
(ii) the junta has not taken the media to any hospital to interview the people that were allegedly injured during the attack,
(iii) no family claims that a relative was injured during the attack and is being treated at any hospital and,
(iv) no family has shared any photo of an injured relation in a hospital or anywhere else.

7. The junta says they have killed 19 fighters of the alleged attack. However, there is no mention of the time, place and circumstances under which the alleged 19 attackers were killed. Further, pictures of the alleged killed attackers, as issued by some known junta security personnel or media, are thought- provoking:
(i) the background of some of the pictures of the alleged killed attackers is clearly a desert. Kinigi and Burera or Virunga national park in general, is fertile volcanic soil.
(ii) There is no blood or wound visible on the alleged dead bodies of the attackers. How were they killed and from where were they killed?

8. Kagame junta paraded five people who, they said, had “confessed” that they were among the attackers. These five people were allegedly captured from undisclosed places and under unknown circumstances. Per their “confession” before the media, the attackers were recruited into armed groups by unidentified individuals from Uganda. By their confession, none of the suspects appears to know Uganda well; none of them mentions any specific place in Uganda.
The alleged arrested attackers appeared coached to implicate Uganda and some opposition leaders in Rwanda and abroad. Kagame’s junta is infamous for staging attacks to implicate opposition leaders in Rwanda and abroad.

9. This type of scare tactic of alleged invasion by a neighboring country is not new and requires further investigation in order to ascertain the truth. My prayer is that Kagame and his junta are held accountable for the crimes they perpetrate against Rwandans and the neighboring communities.
