ishema-congres-menParis, December 22nd 2015.

1.We have been monitoring closely the malice, tricks, and maneuvering by which Paul Kagame has initiated the constitutional reform and rigged a referendum with the sole aim to allow himself to run again as a presidential candidate come 2017, and with the intention to stay in power until his death.

2.It is extremely saddening to see how the citizens have been forcefully pushed into polls without getting the answers and explanations on articles to be amended and why this should be the case. Furthermore, the project of the constitutional reform was never made public for the citizens to debate. What a terror!

3.The malicious referendum designed and ordered by Paul Kagame himself took place on the dates of 17th and 18th of December 2015. The members of ISHEMA party wanted to participate with two main objectives:

First, we viewed it as the opportunity to get our hands on the constitutional reform project which was up to then held a top secret. Reliable information at our desk noted that the Rwandese Patriotic Front (RPF) clique wanted an « empty project » to be voted first before other disfranchising articles would be added into the constitution.

Second, we aimed at sensitizing the people of Rwanda on the importance of casting their vote and take it as an opportunity to initiate changes they need, want and deserve. It was our due time to express our opinion about the malicious referendum by proudly voting “NO” to the project.

4.The members of ISHEMA Party led by Reverend Father Thomas NAHIMANA went to the Rwandan Embassy in Paris, France, while our partners from the New Generation Coalition led by Jean Damascene Ntaganzwa gathered at the Rwandan Embassy in the Netherlands, all to see themselves refused access to the polling rooms, being told their names were not on the voters’ lists. This is an additional and utmost testimony that the RPF discrimination politics remains standing where some citizens are deprived of their right to vote mentioned in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights of which Rwanda is a signatory since April 1975.

5.Members of our Party and other citizens within Rwanda reported to us that on their arrival at the polling stations, they saw their names marked as if they had already voted. Trying to find out why, they were forced back home and told that the amendment must be a hundred per cent voted favorably.

I. We, the Leading Team of ISHEMA Party gathered in our extraordinary meeting in Paris on December 20th 2015 declare the following:

1.No more doubt, Paul Kagame is fully responsible

It is highly immoral to make the world believe that the people of Rwanda want Paul Kagame to remain their leader after 2017. On the contrary, the dictator Paul Kagame made himself author of the project to amend the constitution so that he can stay in power possibly until 2034. For this, two pieces of evidence are overwhelming:

Paul Kagame has never dissuaded those he calls “supporters who want him to stay” although he was well aware that such an action violates the constitution he has himself pledged to protect. Who else can doubt Kagame’s lack of values that must characterize a good leader?

Paul Kagame missed a golden opportunity to stop such a malicious project when the two Chambers of the Parliament tasked him to set up the commission for the constitutional reform. In his person and with no gunpoint at him, Paul Kagame set up the commission to violate the constitution and ordered the plan to follow. He has thus committed the highest act of treason against the Rwandan nation. Kagame shall therefore be held responsible for all the consequences our country is expected to face resulting from his unquenchable thirst for power.

2.This malicious referendum is a curse for Rwanda:

By changing the 2003 Constitution and especially its article 101 that set provisions for peaceful power transfer by preventing anyone to stick with the power after two terms in office;

By forging in the new constitution the article 172 that considers Paul Kagame as an idol president who can only leave the presidency upon death;

3.Rwanda is entering the « Fourth Republic » which reinforces the regime of terror and dictatorship and which has more than much in common with the monarchy abolished since 1961. Under this new monarchy all the powers are put in the hands of the single man, Paul Kagame who believes he cannot leave the power unless he is killed. It should be recalled that the third republic started with the constitution of 2003 that purposely neglected the ARUSHA peace accords that, however, set ways to power sharing as a mean to build sustainable peace among Rwandan citizens.

4.This malicious referendum dispels out all the lies of the RPF:

From now onwards all the claims that president Paul Kagame is a “Supernatural and extraordinary” African Leader who loves democracy and concerned by his people’s peace, security and development are buried. Kagame has finally and truly revealed his real nature: a super dictator with an unending thirst of power. This malicious referendum of his comes as if it was meant to indicate that peaceful political changes are impossible but the determination of peace-lover citizens is still well alive and shall not delay to show. Unfortunately this malicious referendum full of disrespect and provocation towards Rwandans can give a strong reason to those who believe only in armed struggles to resolve the issues. As such, struggles would destroy our country and further deteriorate the already suffering social cohesion.

II. For the abovementioned and other non-listed reasons, we urge all Rwandans;

1.To organize and protest against the malicious referendum that seeks to enthrone the dictator who hails himself into an idol

2.To unanimously stand with all means against the dictator Paul Kagame whose interest is to keep Rwandan citizens into conflicts, wars and poverty which in turn do not allow them to achieve the true welfare and sustainable peace and development.

3.To garner all what it will take and set up the Popular Court of Justice with the mission of trying Paul Kagame over the act of high treason he committed against our nation by this malicious referendum.

4.To start concrete acts of civil disobedience against the regime of Paul Kagame which has no longer any relationship with the people especially now that the malicious referendum has taken the power from the people’s hands in favor of a dictator whose the sole objective is to protect his own interests at expense of the Rwandan’s welfare and all the region’s security.

5.We exclusively call on the armed security forces to ignore Paul Kagame’s manipulations that since long sought to enrich only one man in his person, to kill and to impoverish the armed forces ranks and their colleagues. We urge them to reflect on their mission that aims at neither less nor more than protecting the national sovereignty, order and security of the people of Rwanda. They should stay away from any acts of torturing, terrorizing, mistreating and killing citizens, bearing in their mind that those crimes will soon or later be punished under national or international laws. Shouldn’t they learn from Rwanda’s far and recent past history?

III. To the international community, we recommend

1.To diplomatically, financially and militarily isolate Paul Kagame and his clique. More than enough evidence testifies that the arms and other military materials sold to Kagame in the name of Rwanda are used to terrorize the people and destabilize the security of the whole great lakes region of Africa.

2.To support the political opponents to Kagame’s regime for organization and  mobilization so that they keep up their mission to sensitize the Rwandan citizens on peaceful power transfer, good governance and how to reach a government formula that guarantees the true national reconciliation, sustainable peace and shared economic development.

3.To support the Rwandan Consensus Convention which will permit the dialogue between the government of Rwanda and the opposition leaders as well as all key players in national social, economic and political arenas with the sole aim to reach a government of consensus that will prevent further bloodsheds likely to result from Kagame‘s stubbornness and animosity against the open and free political space.

4.To set up an international neutral armed body for protection of the members of the opposition during the presidential campaign and elections of 2017. We request that the international community observers and the Rwandan opposition members be integrated within the national elections commission in order to scrutinize and take part in the planning and the oversight of the elections given the commission’s loss of credibility observed during electoral processes and especially in the most recent malicious referendum.


As Rwandan citizens we must understand that the real change in our country will take place once we decide to contribute. Nobody else shall do it on our behalf.

For that aim, ISHEMA Party decided to organize its congress that will be held from 15th to 18th of January 2016 in order to finalize the plan of the journey to exercise our civic and political rights in Rwanda. Our congress will also take appropriate measures to face the difficult situation Rwanda is entering due to the recent malicious referendum.

Long live the Republic that respects democratic values

Long live Rwandans mobilized to abolish the dictatorship

Be abolished forever this Fourth Republic built on the malicious referendum

Un référendum controversé au Rwanda

Jeudi et vendredi, les Rwandais vont se prononcer sur une modification de la constitution. Une manoeuvre du président Kagame? L’opposition dénonce un manque de débat démocratique.

La consultation populaire va durer deux jours au Rwanda. C’est demain et vendredi que se tiendra le référendum sur les modifications de la constitution. Le parti au pouvoir espère une large victoire du « oui », afin de permettre au président Paul Kagame de briguer un troisième mandat en 2017 – ce que la constitution actuelle ne lui permet pas. L’opposition, elle, dénonce une manœuvre destinée à empêcher l’alternance politique.

Pétition quasi-obligatoire

Plus de 3 millions et demi de Rwandais ont signé il y a quelques mois la pétition lancée par la mouvance présidentielle, pour réclamer la modification de la loi fondamentale. Pour le parti de Paul Kagame, c’est la promesse d’une victoire écrasante du « oui », par la volonté du peuple. Parmi les dispositions les plus importantes contenues dans le projet soumis à référendum, il y a la possibilité faite au président de faire jusqu’à cinq mandats d’affilée. Paul Kagame pourrait donc se représenter pour un nouveau septennat en 2017, briguer ensuite encore trois mandats de cinq ans et ainsi cumuler 31 ans à la tête du pays.

Karikatur des DW-Zeichners Said Michael Le caricaturiste Said Michael se fait l’écho des craintes au sein de l’opposition et à l’étranger, sur les ambitions du président Kagame

Le hic, c’est que la campagne a été entièrement orchestrée par le pouvoir, d’après ce journaliste, Gonza Muganwa :

« Le référendum ne sera pas une véritable décision politique du peuple. Officiellement, il n’y a pas de voix discordante. Le parti au pouvoir et ses alliés dominent totalement le paysage politique. »

La chef de la diplomatie européenne, Federica Mogherini a aussi mis en garde début décembre contre la modification d’articles pour les besoins d’un seul individu, qui affaiblirait la crédibilité de la réforme constitutionnelle. Les Rwandais qui sont contre la modification de la constitution préfèrent s’exprimer de façon anonyme, comme ceux-ci:

« Nous n’osons rien dire car ça mettrait notre vie en danger. Des gens ont déjà été emprisonnés, persécutés ou ont tout bonnement disparu. »

« Kagame a dit qu’il ne se présenterait que deux fois. Ce vote est un mensonge. »

Une opposition désenchantée

Le Parti Vert démocratique, seul parti d’opposition indépendant, a pris la tête de la contestation du référendum. Il réclame l’alternance, à la fin du mandat de Paul Kagame, en 2017. Sa plainte devant la cour suprême pour faire annuler le référendum a échoué. Carine Maombi, des Verts, regrette que la date du scrutin n’ait ensuite été confirmée qu’il y a une semaine. Les campagnes de sensibilisation à la modification de la constitution se sont ainsi déroulées sans débat contradictoire.

Par ailleurs, de nombreux Rwandais sont favorables au maintien de Paul Kagame à la présidence. D’une part en raison de la période de croissance économique qui a suivi le génocide de 1994, mais aussi parce que le président n’a pas préparé son éventuelle succession. Pour l’heure, en face de lui non plus, il n’y a pas de rival capable de lui tenir tête aux prochaines élections.


FPR ko wiruka nk’ukurikiwe bite?


Nyamara Umunyarwanda yaciye umugani ngo iyihuse ibyara ibihumye! Gusa icyo nkundira amateka ni uko amenya guhemba buri wese akurikije ibyo yakoze ndetse rimwe na rimwe akamugerekeraho ...NDLR.

Kagame yavuze ko azafata icyemezo nyuma y’ikinamico ya referendum! Ariko birashoboka cyane ko byose bigenze uko babiteganya, Kagame azakomeza kujijisha kugeza icyumweru kimwe mbere y’amatora yo muri 2017. Aha rero umuntu yakwibaza ati “none barirukanswa n’iki?

Igisubizo nta handi kiri uretse politique yo mu karere.

Kagame ntabwo ashaka kuza ari inyongera mu myitwarire anti-democratique ya bamwe mu bakuru b’ibihugu bo mu karere kuko yasanga isura mbi ijyana n’iyo myitwarire yararangije kumudoderwa bityo bikaba byamugora kuyivanaho.

Ku ruhande rumwe Kagame yakoze uko ashoboye kugirango arokokore isura ye imbere y’ibibera mu Burundi. Ni byo bya bindi bya “ Hey look at me, I’m different…Nkurunziza ntabwo akunzwe n’abaturage naho njyewe ni bo bansaba kugumaho”.

Ariko nyamara ushyize izindi details ku ruhande indorerezi z’amatora mu Burundi si byo zabonye kandi abaturage batoye mu mucyo nta gahato ugereranyije n’uumuhango witirirwa amatora ukorwa mu Rwanda.

Ubu igisigaye ni ugutera rwaserera mu Burundi bakora uko bashoboye buri munsi hakaboneka umurambo wo kwerekana muri Media ngo “byaciste naho twebwe umutekano ni wose”, n’ubwo bashimuta abatavuga rumwe na bo rwihishwa bikanga bikamenyekana.

Ku rundi ruhande hari igihugu cya Congo (RDC). Uko bizagenda muri Congo magingo aya nta we ubifitiye gihamya FPR irimo. Ikigaragara ni uko bishobora ku defavolisant FPR haba mu karere cyangwa mu mahanga. Ikindi kandi nta gushidikanya mu mezi ari imbere ibya RDC bizatangira gushyuha. Aho rero ni ho FPR yagize iti ‘ibyo byose bigomba kuza twe ibyacu tubigeze kure kuko nibwo byatworohera ku gerageza kurokora isura”, wenda na ho babona uko bakora za parallismes bishyira.
Ntabwo ari ku busa iyo kinamico ya referendum ikorwa mu minsi mike mbere y’iminsi mikuru aho bishoboka ko benshi barangariye mu bindi kandi bigakorwa mbere yuko umwaka urangira ngo bagerageze gufata distance n’ibizaba mu mwaka wa 2016.

Igisigaye ni ukureba niba izo maneuvres zikozwe hutihuti nta gutekereza bacungana n’ibihe abandi barangaye, zizatanga results bifuza.

  • Ese credibility ifite ngufu ki muri ayo macenga yose?

  • Ese kwitanguranwa biruta kuba barategereje gukina ku munota wa nyuma?

Kagame yatumenyereje ko akora ibyo ashaste ubundi agasigara ahangana na consequences. Byose bizaterwa n’uburemere bw’izo consequences haba kubanyarwanda, haba ku baturanyi, haba ku banyamahanga, haba kuri FPR ubwayo, haba mbere ya 2017 cyangwa nyuma se na yayo.

Revolution: “Banyarwanda banyarwandakazi,ubushobozi bwanyu bwose mwabuhaye ingirwa ntare muyihindura intare”


Kagame baramusurira urupfu: Irebere ayo makarito batwaye nk’imirambo bajyanye mu mva!

Banyarwanda, Banyarwandakazi,
Maze iminsi mvugana n’abaturage ku bijyanye n’amabaruwa bitirirwa ko bandika basaba ko uriya mwicanyi Kagame yakomeza kuyobora u Rwanda.Mu baturage twaganiriye bambwiye ko rwose ariya mabaruwa bayahatirwa kuyandika,bati “ariko ikindi dutinya,dutinya ko iriya nyeshyamba yamenyereye kuba mu mwobo ejo niva ku buperezida izasubira mu mwobo ikaza iturimbura?”

Bati; “ubu n’ubwo yicana, yica irobanura igenda ifata umwe uno munsi ejo igafata undi, abasigaye tugasenga Imana tukabona burije burakeye”. Bati “twe tubona kuba ari perezida hari abantu atinya bigatuma atatumena mo amasasu nk’ayo yatumenagamo akiba mu ishyamba. Bati: “ese mwana ni gute wavana intare mu ishyamba ukajya kuyirerera mu nzu? N’ubwo hariya bayikuye mu ishyamba bayizanye mu Rugwiro, urabona ko n’ubu yibereyeho nk’uko yari ibayeho mu ishyamba”. Bongeraho bati: “Rero kuyikura hariya ni ukuyisubiza aho bayikuye, aho bayikuye mu ndake isubiye yo yatumara noneho”.


Umu DASSO umwe aniga umuntu abandi barebera koko?

Muri rusange abaturage bafite impungenge z’ubuzima bw’iriya ntare nyuma y’umwaka wa 2017! Akaba ariyo mpamvu bemera gusinyishwa ku gahato kugira ngo ejo intare itazasubira mu mwobo ikazaza ari kirimbuzi.
Nabateze amatwi numva impungenge zabo. Icyo nakuyemo ni uko iriya ngirwa ntare yahahamuye abaturage ku buryo batifuza ko yasubira mu ishyamba.
Impungenge zabo zifite ishingiro ariko haricyo biyibagije ko kuba iriya ngirwa ntare ikomeza kubahahamura babifitemo uruhare. Bati : “ese gute wa mwana we?

Nanjye nti: “mufite imbaraga n’ubushobozi. Ubushobozi bwanyu bwose mwabuhaye ingirwa ntare muyihindura intare nya ntare”. Baratangaye.


Ni koko abaturage bafite imbaraga batazi.

Dore uko ibintu bimeze:.Amabaruwa muhatirwa gusinya mwanze kuyasinya ku mugaragaro mukamagana n’abo baza kubahatira gusinya, ingirwantare ihinduka injangwe. Ubwo muba muyambuye bwa bushobozi ntizongera kuza aho muri, yemwe n’iyo yabakangisha kujya mu mwobo muyibwire ko niyibeshya uwo mwobo muzawusibanganya iwurimo, nk’uko yasibanganyirije abacu mu buvumo..
Nabahaye urugero rw’imbwa. Imbwa iyo ikumokeye ukayereka ko watinye ukiruka ikwirukaho ku buryo ushobora no kuvunika. Ariko iyo imotse wihagararaho wabona n’ibuye hafi ukaritora ukariyitera, icyo gihe izinga umurizo ikagenda nawe ukikomereza.

Mwitinya Kagame, mwituma akomeza kubahonyora mwimwimika nk’ umwami. Mwarabyaye n’ubwo bamwe yabamaze ho urubyaro ariko na kamwe yabasigiye na ko gafite ububasha bwo kuyobora. Kagame ntiyavukanye imbuto. Ababeshya ko navaho mutazabaho arabeshya, Kagame si Imana, ndetse kubwe muba mwararimbutse mwese kuko ni cyo yaje ashaka kandi yarabyivugiye ko ikimubabaza  ari uko atabonye umwanya wo kubica mwese ngo abamare. Ubu rero aya mabaruwa muri kwemera ko babasinyisha, murimo mumuha wa mwanya wo kubamara mwese.

Batangiye kumva ingero nabahaye, bati: “wa mugani, twishyize hamwe ntacyatunanira. Bati: “ese ko ari twe tunamutora n’ubwo tutamutoye ku bushake!!” Nti “ntimwumva se”, nti: “noneho muzanamwangire ku bushake”.

Bati: “rero baradusinyishije kandi amabaruwa barangije kuyapfunyika.

Nabasubijeko ntarirarenga.

Buriya bazagaruka muri kamarampaka baje kubasaba gutora.“Yego” bizaba bisobanura ko mwemeye ko Kagame akomeza kuyobora ubuziraherezo, “oya” izaba isobanura ko mubyanze. Abaturage barasetse bose, bati “aho ni ho tumutegeye noneho ntazaducika, reka tubike ibanga ryacu ku mutima”.

Ubutumwa nabahaye ni uko bagomba gushirika ubwoba ntihazongere kuza umuntu ubereka aho batora. Muri demokarasi uwo muntu yatoye ni ibanga. Abaturage rero biteguye kwereka ingirwa ntare Kagame ko kuba yibona nk’intare ari ukubera abaturage,ubu bagiye kumugira injangwe babinyujije muri kamarampaka, abibwira ko ariya mabaruwa bari kwirirwa basinyisha abaturage byarangiye, muribeshya cyane., you will be embarrassed in broad daylight!!!


Byose biragenda nk’uko byahanuwe: Isekurume izabyara isekurume ndwi (manda y’imyaka 7) zose zanjye konka. Iyo ihene yavutse ntiyonke irapfa.

Kagame rero, abaturage uyobora bagufata nk’inyeshyamba n’ubwo wavuye mu ishyamba, ishyamba ryo riracyakurimo, ni akamaramaza mugani w’Abarundi.
Niba wifuza gufata iy’ishyamba na bwo, rwose Kagame ntizakorohera kuko ishyamba ntirikiri ryeru nk’uko byahoze cya gihe utera u Rwanda rwatembaga amata n’ubuki ukarugira urutemba amaraso n’imiborogo

Dore aho mpera mbivuga ko bitazakorohera ni aha:

Ubwoba bwawe burazwi, ukangwa n’ubusa. Ba Nyamwasa bagufashije kuguma mu mwobo utuje yewe ndetse bakanakurokora inshuro nyinshi, ubahejeje ishyanga abandi wabanigishije ibiziriko, abandi barimo baborera muri 1930. Niba wizeye uriya Kabarebe utwite inda y’imvutsi,uragowe kuko umunsi yumvise ko byagukomeranye azahera ko ajya ku bise bitunguranye urebe kariya kadigi kameze nk’agatwite bane ehhhe, dore aho nibereye!

None se uriya mufumbira wakuye i Bugande ni we uzakurwanirira? Umunsi yumvise byakomeye azasubira iwabo i Bufumbira nazaba atarafumbira imirima y’iwabo, dore ko numva ko ari hafi gutanga ifumbire mu murima wa nyina. Na twa tuzi yirirwa yicisha abanyarwanda ntatwo azaguhaho ngo tukuruhure.

Rwarakabije se? Ko utizera umuhutu ubwo se uwo mwobo uzawubana mo na nde? Wibuke ko iyo byakomeye buri wese akiza amagara ye. Uriya mushikiwanyu se azaba akibona aho avugira ko ntawe uzaba ukimutega amatwi? Uwo munsi na Cliton/Blair bazavuga ko nta ho bakuzi. Uzaba ubaye uwa nde??

Icyiza ni ukwishyira mu maboko ya rubanda, icyo gihe nta cyo tuzagutwara tuzagushyikiriza ababishinzwe, n’ubwo watubabaje ukaduhekura, ukatugira imfubyi,tuzagufata tugushyiirize inzego zishwizwe kurinda umutekano wawe, ariko niwiha kujya mu mwobo, tuzawusibanganya nta kundi bizagenda.
Kagame emera wivireho ejo bundi manda yawe nirangira.Kuba waraje ku butegetsi nabi ukabuvaho nabi ntacyo bizakumarira, nyamara ubuvuyeho neza, hari akantu byahindura ku isura abanyarwanda baguha. ibyaha wakoze byo, abanyarwanda ubwabo bazamenya uko bakugenza, si abana babi n’ubwo wabatoje ububi, ariko abeza turacyari benshi.Tangira wirukane ayo mabandi wavanye Uganda, kontara mwari mwarasinyanye na yo yo kurimbura abanyarwanda no gusahura u Rwanda uyisese. Tangira witegure ko uzabazwa byinshi ku mahano yagwiriye u Rwanda azanywe nawe n’ayo mabandi yawe.Tangira witegure gusubiza iby’abandi wasahuye, umutungo wa rubanda. Ibyo byose ni byo wakagombye kuba utekerezaho kurusha uko utekereza mu guhindura itegeko nshinga, nzi neza ko utazabigeraho n’ubwo wowe n’ayo mabandi yawe mwibwira ko muri kubikozaho imitwe y’intoki, ariko murebye nabi mwasanga murimo mukora kuri bombe izabaturikana mwese hamwe!
Nyamwanga kumva ntiyanze no kubona, utazi ubwenge ashima ubwe.
Ngibyo ibya ya  ngirwantare y’u Rwanda.
