Diplomatie : Le torchon brûle à nouveau entre Paris et Kigali… Macron répond à Paul Kagame

KAGAME-MACRON

Le torchon brule à nouveau entre Paris et Kigali. Les fragiles relations entre la France et le Rwanda viennent, une fois de plus, de connaitre un regain de tensions. En cause, la relance de l’enquête française sur l’attentat contre le président rwandais Juvénal Habyarimana en 1994. Cette enquête avait déjà provoqué une rupture des relations diplomatiques entre 2006 et 2009 et en 2016.

On apprend aujourd’hui, par une source proche du dossier citée par l’Agence France-presse sous couvert d’anonymat, que le juge français a ordonné la confrontation de ce nouveau témoin avec deux personnes déjà mises en examen en 2010 : James Kabarebe, actuel ministre de la Défense du Rwanda, et un certain Franck Nziza, tireur présumé qui, selon Kigali, n’a jamais appartenu à l’APR (Armée patriotique Rwandaise, branche militaire de la rébellion tutsie avant 1994).

Selon la source citée par l’AFP, la confrontation est prévue – par la justice française – pour la mi-décembre.

De quoi Paul Kagame a-t-il peur ?

 « Il est exclu que le ministre de la Défense réponde à cette convocation de la justice française. » À Kigali, l’entourage présidentiel est unanime : pas question que James Kabarebe, ministre depuis 2010 et ancien aide de camp de Paul Kagame au temps de la rébellion, se rende à Paris afin d’y être confronté à un témoin de la dernière heure qui accuse le FPR (aujourd’hui au pouvoir) d’avoir abattu, le 6 avril 1994, l’avion du président hutu Juvénal Habyarimana.

Dans un discours à Kigali le 10 octobre, le président rwandais Paul Kagame a en effet évoqué la possibilité d’une nouvelle rupture des relations diplomatiques entre les deux pays. Et effectivement, l’ambassadeur du Rwanda à Paris, Jacques Kabale, vient d »être rappelé à Kigali « pour consultation ».

Le 7 octobre 2017, le juge français chargé de l’instruction sur l’attentat du 6 avril 1994 visant l’avion du président hutu Juvénal Habyarimana a ordonné la confrontation d’un nouveau témoin avec deux personnes mises en examen dans ce dossier. Ce témoin accrédite la thèse selon laquelle l’attentat aurait été commis sur ordre de Paul Kagame. En effet, un nouveau témoin dans l’instruction menée en France depuis près de 20 ans sur l’attentat du 6 avril 1994 visant l’avion du président hutu Juvénal Habyarimana a été entendu par le juge d’instruction français en mars, à deux reprises, dans la plus grande discrétion.

Selon une source proche de Paul Kagame, une rupture des relations diplomatiques serait « une éventualité ».Un diplomate rwandais ajoute que « c’est un scénario probable, à moins que la cause de ce rappel ne disparaisse »

À un chef d’État d’Afrique de l’Ouest exprimant son embarras face à cette détérioration des relations entre Kigali et Paris, Emmanuel Macron a adressé, en substance, ce message : il ne s’agit pas de l’ouverture d’une nouvelle instruction, mais de la poursuite de l’ancienne ; merci de rappeler au président Paul Kagame que la justice française est indépendante. La France, elle, n’a plus d’ambassadeur au Rwanda depuis le départ de Michel Flesch, en 2015, Kigali n’ayant jamais accordé d’agrément à son successeur.

Short of arguments, Rwanda Diplomacy Chief threatens the critics!

LMUs

This is what Minister Louise Mushikiwabo tweeted in Kinyarwanda. The derogatory, very racist tweet was aimed at whites and other non-whites who have been critical of the regime she works for as Foreign Minister, led by dictator Paul Kagame.

I am sick and tired of utuzungu said Mushikiwabo. In Kinyarwanda, Umuzungu means a white person. When you replace the first 3 letters “umu” by “utu”, then the word becomes pejorative. It is a common way of formulating an insult  in Kinyarwanda. In this case it means that those whites are subhumans, small (insignificant)  and beneath her. Rwandans do this a lot. They call people they don’t like subhumans. Before the genocide, Tutsis were called cockroaches and subhumans. It is sad that Rwanda’s Foreign Affairs Minister used the same language, same rhetoric as genocidaires. Of all people, Minister Mushikiwabo should know how labeling other races subhumans simply because they shed some light on your government’s human rights abuses is wrong. Instead of refuting those accusatory reports by facts, she resulted to attacks and insults. She chose Kinyarwanda hoping they will never know maybe!

Here is more Kinyarwanda lesson. Abagabo means men. If you want to insult a bunch of men, you can call them utugabo. It is a disrespectful way of saying that they are a bunch of useless nobodies. In Rwandan culture, there is no grave insult than this, especially when this insult is uttered by a woman. Rwanda is still a society where a woman is supposed be genteel and to have ladylike behavior all the time especially the bourgeoisie and higher ups.

The kind of language Minister Mushikiwabo used, normally is for street walkers and thugs. It is the equivalent of ghetto or hood talk in the US. This is why the tweet was scandalous. Many Rwandans were flabbergasted even shocked by that bad language coming from someone in charge of diplomacy and foreign relations, the government spokeswoman. A woman who uses that kind of language in Rwanda is called “inshinzi” (Huchi mama, vulgar with no self worth) and it is normally not proper for a high ranking official to use that kind of language!

Minister Mushikiwabo accused those whites she qualified of subhumans of writing “amateshwa” about Rwanda. Here she was referring to recent reports condemning human rights abuses by the government of dictator Paul Kagame. In Kinyarwanda amateshwa means rubbish, nonsense, words coming out of a mouth of someone who is stupid, dumb, non important, demented, someone so irrelevant that you have no time for whatever they are saying.

Finally, Mushikiwabo asked “utuzungu”, those insignificant white subhumans who put them in charge of Africa? They need to butt out of african affairs she said!

Le Burundi et la RDC demandent au Conseil de sécurité de dénoncer le Rwanda.

Réunion du conseil de sécurité de l’ONU, le 1er mars, à New York. (archives)

Le Burundi et la République démocratique du Congo (RDC) ont demandé au Conseil de sécurité de rappeler à l’ordre le Rwanda, accusé de recruter des réfugiés burundais pour déstabiliser Bujumbura, dans des lettres rendues publiques mercredi.

L’ambassadeur burundais Albert Shingiro a réclamé une réunion d’urgence du Conseil afin de “prendre des mesures appropriées” pour s’assurer que Kigali ne cherche pas à déstabiliser le Burundi.

Dans une autre lettre au Conseil, l’ambassadeur de RDC Ignace Gata Mavita demande, lui, “d’inviter le Rwanda à respecter (ses) engagements internationaux et à arrêter sans délai ces recrutements et toutes les opérations qui s’en suivent”. Le Conseil doit “condamner sans atermoiements ce comportement” de Kigali, ajoute la lettre.

Des experts de l’ONU avaient accusé dans un récent rapport le Rwanda de recruter et d’entraîner des réfugiés du Burundi afin de renverser son président Pierre Nkurunziza.

Le gouvernement rwandais a toujours nié ces accusations.

Selon la lettre de la RDC, ces réfugiés, une fois entraînés au Rwanda, “sont infiltrés en RDC”, avec des fausses cartes d’électeurs “pour les faire passer comme des habitants de ce pays”, puis introduits ensuite au Burundi.

Le Burundi est plongé dans une profonde crise politique depuis la candidature fin avril 2015 du président Nkurunziza – réélu en juillet – à un troisième mandat, que l’opposition, la société civile et une partie de son camp jugent contraire à la Constitution et à l’Accord d’Arusha, qui avait mis fin à la guerre civile (1993-2006).

Plus de 400 personnes ont été tuées depuis le début de la crise, qui a poussé 230.000 personnes à l’exil.

Selon des diplomates, le secrétaire général de l’ONU Ban Ki-moon doit se rendre lundi au Burundi pour pousser Bujumbura à dialoguer avec l’opposition et à accepter une présence internationale accrue dans le pays afin d’apaiser les violences

Learn how Rwanda under Paul Kagame managed to manipulate the international opinion.

Paul-Kagame-                                                          

Racepoint Group worked to promote  the so-called “Rwanda’s visionary leader”

A detailed PR strategy prepared by lobbyists for the Rwandan government has been published by the US authorities. Under US law, lobby firms working on behalf of other governments are required to register their activities publicly.

The memo, which was prepared by “Racepoint Group” in 2009, is addressed to the Rwandan Information Minister from company bigwigs Larry Weber and Peter Prodromou – whose previous experience includes “working with the leaders of Saudi Arabia and Libya to positively impact global public perception and support negotiating positions with key allies”.

The strategy aims: to “build a strong and sustained Image campaign communicating the successes of Rwanda with key stakeholders in the political and financial elite communities” and “Offset the negative and factually incorrect information of those parties with vested interests in mis-portraying Rwanda’s advancements”.

Campaign themes include “Rwanda’s Visionary Leader… highlighting President Kagame and his visionary leadership” and “The Rwandan Miracle: Healing of a Nation”. The company’s fees are listed as $50,000 per month plus $2,500 – £3,500 per month for “out of pocket expenses”. The average Rwandan has an income of$510 per year.

Racepoint suggests that Rwanda has a “significant image problem”, in part because “Certain NGOs, such as Human Rights Watch, continue to advance a story of an unstable Rwanda” . Racepoint seems dismissive of this picture, alleging that Human Rights Watch and others are presenting it merely “as a means of continuing to attract donors and wield influence in the region”.

The PR firm then outlines “a consolidated set of tactics to publicize both Rwanda and President Kagame“. This will initially involve “leveraging top print and broadcast outlets to communicate the Rwanda success story… and, in the process, validate it based on their credibility”, together with “a proactive campaign that leverages the web to seed stories favorable to Rwanda”.

Racepoint singles out  the Huffington Post as a particular online media target, together with “careful seeding across the blogosphere” to “initiate an offensive to control the organic search on Rwanda and set the agenda in print and broadcast”.

“At the same time, we will blunt the online impact of our opposition by initiating a wall of defense debunking their accusations… we will identify and selectively respond to the most egregious… we will erect, on free social networks, ‘walls’ of pro-Rwandan data that debunks myths and links to Rwanda’s national web site. This will enable us to establish captive audiences on the web…”

Further elements mooted include a “Celebrity Visitor Program” a “Global College Tour” for President Kagame, and “challenging heads of NGOs that are the country’s largest detractors to public, televised debates on networks like CNN, BBC and al-Jazeera. This will provide Rwandan officials with the opportunity to debunk mythology being propagated by hostile NGOs and other detractors.”

The Guardian last year profiled Racepoint’s PR work for the Rwandan government, and highlighted critical comments by the Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative:

The Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative, in a report last year, found that Rwanda has “excellent public relations machinery” which has succeeded in “persuading the key members of the international community that it has an exemplary constitution emphasising democracy, power-sharing, and human rights which it fully respects”. It concluded: “The truth is, however, the opposite.”

Rwanda’s constitution, the report said, was “a facade which hides the exclusionary and repressive nature of the regime”, “basic human rights are in an unsatisfactory state”, “censorship is prevalent” and there are “serious concerns about the level of political freedom”.
