Reconnaissance du crime de génocide contre la population Hutu.

Déclaration de reconnaissance du crime de génocide contre la population Hutu:

Nous, universitaires, experts, chercheurs, survivants, défenseurs des droits de l’homme, défenseurs des libertés civiles et de la justice sociale, responsables religieux,

A la suite de l’initiative de recherche de la GCRHR sur les crimes commis par l’Armée Patriotique Rwandaise (APR) au Rwanda, puis en République Démocratique du Congo (ancien Zaïre) par l’intermédiaire de son allié congolais, l’Alliance des Forces démocratiques pour la libération du Congo-Zaïre (AFDL), contre des membres du groupe ethnique hutu,
Sur base de notre propre évaluation indépendante d’experts de toutes les informations fiables disponibles, des recherches antérieures et des faits sur le sujet des massacre à grande échelle des Hutu par rapport à la convention de génocide,

Après avoir examiné la définition officielle du crime de génocide par la Convention de Génocide de 1948 des Nations Unies, qui définit le génocide comme l’un quelconque des actes ci-après, commis dans l’intention de détruire, ou tout ou en partie, un groupe national, ethnique, racial ou religieux, comme tel :

a) Meurtre de membres du groupe ;
b) Atteinte grave à l’intégrité physique ou mentale de membres du groupe;
c) Soumission intentionnelle du groupe à des conditions d’existence devant entraîner sa destruction physique totale ou partielle;
d) Mesures visant à entraver les naissances au sein du groupe;
e) Transfert forcé d’enfants du groupe à un autre groupe,

Après avoir soigneusement et minutieusement comparé toutes les informations et faits fiables, annexés à la présente résolution, concernant l’assassinat de membres du groupe ethnique hutu du Rwanda et de l’ancien Zaïre aux actes susmentionnés dans la définition faisant autorité du génocide, en particulier les actes a, b et c,

Notant que, d’après les informations et les faits disponibles, les massacres de la population de l’ethnie hutu ont été perpétrés sur base d’un plan presque identique, conçu pour tuer autant de victimes que possible, quels que soient leur sexe, leur âge ou leur nationalité,

Sachant que les rapports des experts des Nations unies sur les massacres de Hutu dans l’ex-Zaïre concluaient que les meurtres avaient révélé un certain nombre d’éléments inculpatoires les qualifiant de crime de génocide,

Notant qu’après le rapport de l’ONU sur la cartographie, l’ONU a recommandé de prendre de nouvelles mesures pour prévenir, enquêter, faire cesser et punir les crimes décrits dans son propre rapport afin de s’acquitter de ses obligations en vertu de la convention sur le génocide,

Par la présente, nous déclarons et reconnaissons comme CRIME DE GÉNOCIDE les massacres des centaines de milliers de personnes hutu rwandaises au Rwanda et de réfugiés hutu rwandais, de réfugiés hutu burundais et de citoyens hutu congolais en RDC du fait de leur appartenance au groupe ethnique hutu et sans distinction d’âge, de sexe ou de nationalité, par l’Armée Patriotique Rwandaise et son allié congolais, le groupe rebelle de l’Alliance des Forces Démocratiques pour la Libération du Congo-Zaïre
(AFDL).

Nous appelons la communauté internationale à s’acquitter de ses obligations en vertu de la convention sur le génocide et à agir collectivement pour traduire en justice les auteurs de ce crime de génocide.

Kizito Mihigo Calvary: what he said before he was assassinated

One of motives to kill Kizito MIHIGO was to prevent him from talking about what he saw througout his ordeal. He had just discovered that all the Human Rights Watch’s reports on rights abuses, torture cases,.. which Kigali refuted all the time were true. He was ready to testify. Kagame’s men killed him. But it was to late he had managed to speak out.

The following text is an initial transcript of parts of the recordings he sent out to his contact whilst in prison.

This note was recorded on October, 6th, 2016. I am Kizito Mihigo. I am detained in the central prison of Kigali, officially called Nyarugenge prison, and alternatively called 1930, in reference to the year when it was built. In April 2014, after having composed and produced a christian song, I was kidnapped, detained and accused of plotting and conspiring against the regime and its president.

In fact, on March 5th, 2014 I had made public a new song titled “igisobanuro cy’urupfu”, (translation: explanation of death). And I published it on my youtube channel, on my personal website, and the official pages of my foundation. During the following days, I received insults, menaces and warning messages telling me that something bad was going to happen to me. I was also contacted several times by government officials, including the minister of culture, the chief of the criminal investigation department (CID), the responsible of culture in the ministry of defense, the executive director of the National Commission Against the Genocide (CNLG) and the office of the president. 

During his speech at the occasion of delivering new ranks to police officers on March 17th, 2014, the president had declared this: “I am not a singer to please the country’s enemies.” In the evening of April 1st, 2014 I was invited by the Chief of staff in the president office. The meeting took place in the office of the president of the senate. The current senate president at the time was vice president of the same institution. Both told me that the president had not liked my song. Therefore I had to apologise in writing to him. I had also to apologise to the population, which allegedly had been shocked by my song. At that meeting I tried to explain unsuccessfully that my song hadn’t been composed with the intention of harming anyone. It was rather a christian message which preached compassion, forgiveness and reconciliation to its audience.

The president’s chief of staff and the senate’s vice president told me that if I didn’t comply with what they were asking me to do, I was a dead man. Therefore I did what they had asked me, meaning apologizing to the president through a letter and the population through the media. The president’s chief of staff had reassured me that if I did what was asked from me, I wouldn’t have any more problems or face any other (translator emphasis – punitive) measures. 

But on April 06, 2014, between 10:00am and 11:00am, when, with my driver I arrived in front of the traffic lights located on the road between the Parliament building and the Rwanda Development Board (RDB) headquarters, a  person entered spontaneously into my car through an unlocked door. It was a policeman I knew. He ordered me to get out of my car and enter his. I went into his car. It was driven by another policeman that I also knew. They confiscated my phone, they told me that we were going to meet one of their superiors who wanted to talk to me. We didn’t go where they had mentioned, but instead we drove around the city of Kigali for tens of minutes. At the end I was taken to the police centre of Gikondo, generally known as Chez Gacinya.

I stayed there for nearly 30 minutes, in a conference room without anyone asking me anything. And when I tried to ask questions, nobody replied to me. I was thereafter put back into the car, then we drove towards Kicukiro. Before arriving at the destination, two individuals in civil uniforms joined us. They sat one on my left and the other on my right. The vehicle continued towards the Nyanza forest. The area is located in the city suburb in the direction leading to Bugesera.

I remained in the car parked in that forest, and surrounded by people I didn’t know and who were not talking to me. From midday until late evening around 8:00pm. Around 6:00pm, a thought came to my mind telling me that these people were going to kill me in that forest. My body was going to be discovered the following day, on April 07, the day of comemorating the 94 genocide. Then I said (to my kidnappers) that if the problem was my song, I had discussed the issue with the president’s chief of staff and the senate’s vice president. Within a few minutes, the car left the forest and I was again driven to the office of the senate’s vice president. I met with the same officials as before, but there was a third one this time, the deputy police commissioner.

They told me that, on top of the song, for which I was accused, they had found in my phone a whatsapp discussion where I exchanged views with someone from the opposition. And it was true. I had a conversation with someone from the opposition, and in our exchange we were very critical of the government. I knew that the Rwandan government didn’t like to be criticised. And for me it’s not a crime to criticise a government.

During that second meeting in the office of the senate’s vice president, I was seriously insulted by the three present personalities, and threatened of being killed. I said sorry. I was then told that I needed to continue asking for forgiveness, but that this time they were not sure if I was going to be forgiven. I was then taken to the car. Once inside, I had my head and face covered with a black balaclava. The vehicle was running but I couldn’t know where we were going. Within minutes, I found myself in a room with a bed, in a residential house, and I stayed there for nine days. 

I was handcuffed 24/7. I ate once every two days. On this very day while I am saying this, I can’t tell where that house/ prison is located. Because each time I was taken out or coming in, my head and face were always covered. I got seriously questioned in that house, and on several occasions. On April 10th for example, meaning four days after the kidnapping, I was taken to the office of the deputy police commissioner, Dan Munyuza, I was beaten up by policemen who were there, I was lying on the ground and getting hit on my back. Thereafter I was taken to a room at the offices of the prime minister. I found there many VIPs from the government. They asked me as well many questions about my song and my whatsapp conversation with a member of the opposition.

Up until April 15th, I stayed locked up in the same secret safe house. It was the same day that I was brought in front of the media. The deputy police commissioner came to me and said that if I continued asking for forgiveness publicly and pleading guilty for all the accusations against me, for the period of investigation and hearing in front of the court, things would be easier for me. On the other hand, if I pleaded not guilty and started denouncing all the injustices I had been victim of, I was going to be sentenced for life imprisonment. And I was certainly going to die in prison. He continued insisting on me pleading guilty on that day, before I appeared in front of the journalists. He explained that pleading guilty and asking for forgiveness, that’s how things will get easier for you, but if you start challenging the authority, pleading not guilty or denouncing your kidnapping or torture and other illegal practices inflicted unto you, you will get a life imprisonment.

I agreed on the terms of the arrangement. To the media and the judge I said that I was sorry for my deeds, but I couldn’t help saying that I only discussed with someone my song. During my hearing, nothing related to the song was mentioned, but I know well deep down that it is central to the whole saga. It was farther to its launch that I had been arrested, even if they hadn’t traced that conversation (with someone in the opposition), they would’ve caused me problems. That had already occurred uniquely because of that song.

On April 15th, after addressing the press, I was taken to the public attorney without a lawyer. The public attorney gave me one day to find myself a lawyer. During my hearing, I always pleaded guilty as I had promised. And on February, 27th 2015 I was sentenced to 10 years of imprisonment. I was told that I was guilty of all the accusations against me, except being complicit in acts of terrorism. Within 30 days after the sentencing, I introduced an appeal to the High Court and I am still waiting (on October 6th, 2016) to hear from them.

This note is recorded on February 8th, 2017 at the Central prison of Kigali, called 1930. I am Kizito Mihigo, detained since April 2014. Recently, exactly on January 21st 2017, I received the visit of the General Police Commissioner, Emmanuel Gasana, who came alone and I chatted with him in the office of the prison’s director. He explained to me that the motive of his visit was to ask me if I didn’t have any message to transmit to the highest authority of the country. I told him that the only message for him was to ask for forgiveness and be allowed to get back into society and become active again, pursue my musical activities. He asked me a few questions about my case. He asked me among other things why I had dared discussing with a member of the opposition, which is the main official offence for my imprisonment. I replied that I was frustrated. I disagreed with some government policies and actions. And that on a personal level I had also had opposing views with some political personalities. He asked me if there wasn’t any other way of solving issues which didn’t involve discussing with the opposition. I replied that I hadn’t anymore trust in the government, and that I needed someone who could understand me. He asked me if I wanted the president to forgive me or a presidential pardon. I said yes. I wanted to be forgiven, but that I wanted to be allowed to pursue my artistic and christian work, which promotes peace and reconciliation. I explained to him that by advocating for peace and reconciliation as an artist, I would be contributing to the work of the government for national reconciliation. After around ten minutes of conversation, the police commissioner left without saying goodbye. The same way as he had come in and didn’t greet me. I didn’t know exactly the motive of his visit, neither who had sent him. 

In conclusion, in my view, my case is political, with fabricated evidence. For example, I didn’t know the individuals who were brought to testify against me. I only knew Cassien Ntamuhanga who was a journalist. I find that there wasn’t any connection between our cases. But the prosecution needed those false witnesses to prove that I was guilty. And the evidence of such manipulation is that the witness called Jean Paul indicated to the judge in the courtroom that the police had tortured him telling him that he had to plead guilty to make Kizito become guilty. It was a political case, without any respect for proper legal procedures. It was characterised by many illegal practices, including torture, kidnapping, unauthorised detention. The arrest procedure was also illegal. Normally, when someone is arrested, they are told the motive of the arrest and shown a legal document authorising it. This wasn’t the case in my situation.”

The list of the people in high positions of authority in Rwanda, from government officials, to security forces and civilians, who tortured Kizito Mihigo directly and or indirectly by giving orders, includes the following names. The list is not comprehensive.

A son tour, Mushikiwabo crucifie Kizito Mihigo!

Le contraire aurait été étonnant. Après quelques semaines de silence imposé, Mushikiwabo ne va pas échapper à la question sur la mort de Kizito Mihigo. Comme on l’aurait deviné, Madame ne se donne pas la peine de feindre l’empathie envers celui qu’elle déshumanise pour le seul fait d’avoir réclamé la reconnaissance des victimes de crimes commis par le Front Patriotique Rwandais (FPR).

L’on reconnait la maîtresse de la diplomatie rwandaise au lendemain de la strangulation dans une chambre d’hôtel Sud-africain de l’ex chef espion rwandais, Patrick Karegeya. Comme tout âme bienveillante attribuait l’assassinat de Karegeya aux escadrons de la mort de Kagame, Mushikiwabo a fustigé ces accusations, sans pour autant manquer d’exprimer l’excitation (ou plus) que la mort de “l’ennemi” de son pays l’avait procurée.

Et qui pourrait oublier son arrogance inégalée lors du sommet France – Afrique tenu à Dakar en 2014? Lors de ce sommet le président français , François Hollande dans le temps, avait critiqué les dirigeants qui manœuvrent les Constitutions  de leurs pays en vue de s’éterniser au pouvoir. Mushikiwabo a vu le doigt pointé à Kagame, et a évacué les propos qui ne pouvaient que l’abaisser, sauf qu’elle s’en tapait, aussi longtemps qu’elle faisait plaisir à son chef. Une année plus tard Kagame a changé la Constitution pour se faire réélire président en 2017. Une autre histoire!

Cette fois-ci, Mushikiwabo tente de justifier l’assassinat de Kizito : “Ce jeune homme avait basculé dans une sorte de recherche de célébrité auprès de toute sorte d’individus qui n’étaient pas des gens qui voulaient du bien au pays”1.  En d’autres termes, la peine de mort “par pendaison” est décrétée à quiconque tente de (1) être une célébrité et/ ou (2) parle aux gens qui ne veulent pas du bien au pays. C’est bien noté Madame. Vous me rappelez un truc: j’ai entendu dire que le prétexte avancé lors du génocide contre les Tutsi était qu’ils s’associaient aux “individus qui n’étaient pas des gens qui voulaient du bien au pays”   et que, de ce fait, leur mort était justifiée. Je n’ai pas été d’accord avec ce prétexte, tout comme je n’achète pas vos conneries sur Kizito.

Chaste Gahunde

Dore uko iburanishwa ry’Inkotanyi Karenzi Karake ryagenze kuri 25/06/2015

westminster-magistrates-court-300x159Leta y’u Rwanda yatanze akayabo ka miliyoni imwe y’amapawundi – ni ukuvuga amanyarwanda arenga miliyari – kugira ngo Inkotanyi Karenzi Karake ifungirwe kijyambere mu nzu ikodeshwa na Ambasade y’u Rwanda i London.

Kuri uyu wa kane tariki ya 25/06/2015, umucamanza Quentin Purdy yatangije urubanza rwa General Karenzi Karake mu rukiko Westminster Magistrates Court.
Icyumba kiburanirwamo cyari cyuzuye abanyamakuru n’abandi bantu bari babukereye baje kureba uko urubanza rugenda.
Hari n’abategetsi bakuru ba Leta y’Inkotanyi y’u Rwanda, barimo Ambasaderi w’u Rwanda mu Bwongereza Williams Nkurunziza ndetse na Ministri w’Ubutabera Johnston Busingye.

Abakozi ba Ambasade nabo bari bahuruye bagaragiwe n’abanyarwanda b’intore za Leta y’Inkotanyi, bari bazinduwe no kwamagana ifatwa n’iburanisha ry’inkotanyi Karenzi Karake. Uretse abo, hari n’abanyarwanda b’impunzi baharanira ko ubutabera bwagera kuri bose, bakaba bagaragazaga ko bishimiye ko noneho n’inkotanyi zitangiye gukurikiranwa ku byaha zakoze harimo ibya jenoside n’ibihonyora inyokomuntu.

Urubanza rwari ruteganijwe gutangira saa 14h isaha y’i London, ariko rwatangiye rukereweho hafi igice cy’isaha.

Muri ekipe y’abavoka baburaniraga inkotanyi Karenzi Karake, harimo Cherie Blair, umugore wa Tony Blair wabaye Ministri w’Intebe w’Ubwongereza igihe kirekire, akaba n’umwe mu bajyanama bakuru b’umukuru wa Leta y’inkotanyi Paul Kagame.

Inkotanyi Karenzi Karake yicajwe mu kumba bashyiramo abashinjwa ibyaha. Yicaye akikijwe n’abacunga-mbohe babili, naho uwa gatatu akaba yari yicaye areba mu cyerekezo cy’abo bagenzi be babiri bakikije uregwa. Inkotanyi Karenzi Karake yazanywe mu rukiko yambaye igisalupeti cy’amabara abonerana y’icyatsi n’umuhondo cyanditsweho mu bitugu amagambo HM PRISON, bita hano mu Bwongereza “escape suits”, bakunze kwambika ba ruharwa bakekwaho ko bashobora gutoroka.

Agitunguka muri ako kumba bicazamo abashinjwa, yambaye icyo gisalubeti, mu banyarwanda bari aho mu cyumba cy’indorerezi hari abatangaye, barimyoza, barahuuma, bigaragaza ko batunguwe no kumubona muri iyo myenda y’imbohe. Hari n’abagore bapfunetse bararira ku buryo bugaragara.
Mbere yo kwicara aho bamweretse yazamuye akaboko areba mu cyerekezo cy’ahicarwa n’indorerezi, bamwe mu ntore za Leta y’Inkotanyi zari zirimo bakoma amashyi.

Mu gutangiza urubanza, umucamanza Quentin Purdy yasabye inkotanyi Karenzi Karake guhaguruka akavuga amazina ye n’igihe yavukiye. Karake amaze kubivuga, yabajijwe niba yemera kwoherezwa mu gihugu cya Espagne kuburanirishwayo ibyo abaespanyole bamushinja, cyangwa niba atabyemera. Yashubije ko atemera kwoherezwa muri Espagne.

Mbere yo gusuzuma niba Karake ashobora kuburana ibyo bya extradition ari mu munyururu cyangwa ari hanze, umucamanza Purdy hamwe na ba avoka bombi, uhagarariye Ubushinjacyaha n’uhagarariye Karake bagiye muby’amatariki kugira ngo bemeze igihe amadosiye n’ibimenyetso bizaba byarangije kwegeranywa n’igihe urubanza rushobora kuzatangira kuburanishwa nyabyo. Bumvikanye ko rwazaburanishwa mu mpera z’ukwezi kwa 10, ku tariki ya 29.

prison-escape-suitMu rukiko, Inkotanyi Karenzi Karake yari yambaye umwenda w’abanyururu nk’uyu.

Ku birebana no kuba yahabwa uburenganzira bwo kuba ari hanze ya gereza kugeza igihe umwanzuro urebana na extradition uzafatwa n’urukiko, uhagarariye ubushinjacyaha yasobanuye impamvu abona ko bitaba byiza ko inkotanyi Karenzi Karake yaba ari hanze by’agateganyo. Yavuze ko afite impungenge zikomeye ko Karenzi Karake yakoresha amayeri yose agatoroka akava mu Bwongereza, cyane cyane ko nta muryango cyangwa imitungo afite mu Bwongereza kandi Leta y’inkotanyi ikaba yashobora no kumufasha gutoroka, cyane cyane ko byagaragaye ko iyo Leta na Ambasade yayo mu Bwongereza barwanya bikomeye iby’ifatwa n’iburanishwa ry’inkotanyi Karenzi Karake.

Bwana Mark Summers waburaniraga inkotanyi Karenzi Karake we yasobanuriye umucamanza impamvu uwo aburanira yakurwa mu munyururu akaburana ibya extradition ari hanze.

Mu mpamvu z’ingenzi yatanze harimo:

– Kuba bazerekana bihagije ko impapuro za Espagne zo kumuta muri yombi bagendeyeho zidakwiye guhabwa agaciro

– Kuba Karenzi Karake agendera kuri pasiporo diplomatique akaba yagombaga ubudahangarwa; aha, avoka wa Karenzi Karake yahaye umucamanza pasiporo itukura y’abadiplomates Karenzi Karake yagendeyeho ndetse ikaba yari irimo na viza yatewemo na Ambasade y’Abongereza. Umucamanza yabajije impamvu bavuga ko Karenzi Karake yari mu misiyo y’igihugu kandi viza iteye muri iyo pasiporo ikaba yerekanye ku yari agiye muri Visit na Business. Uwunganira Karenzi Karake yavuze ko ariko Abongereza bakunze kubigenza.

– Kuba bizagaragazwa ko gusaba ko Karenzi Karake ajya imbere y’ubucamanza bwa Espagne ari igikorwa cya politiki atari ukubera gushishikazwa koko n’ubutabera kandi hakaba hari ibimenyetso ko imiryango yo muri Espagne ikomeza gusaba iburanishwa ry’abategetsi b’u Rwanda ifite ubufatanye n’abagize uruhare muri jenoside, harimo na FDLR;

– Kuba Karenzi Karake atari umuntu wo muri rubanda rusanzwe, ahubwo akaba ari umuntu ukomeye cyane kandi wubashwe mu Rwanda no mu mahanga. Aha umwunganizi wa Karenzi Karake yasobanuye ko urebye imirimo Karenzi Karake ashinzwe mu Rwanda, kumufunga ari kimwe no gufunga Diregiteri wa CIA. Yibukije kandi ko Karenzi Karake yabaye umwe mu bayobozi bubashwe kandi bashoboye bategetse Misiyo ngaruramahoro y’ingabo za LONI i Darfur muri Sudan.
Yakomeje avuga ko u Rwanda ari igihugu cyizewe kandi kinafashwa n’Ubwongereza ndetse ko no mu madosiye arebana n’iyicwa ry’abasipanyole, u Rwanda rwakoze ibishoboka byose mu gukora anketi, gucira imanza abo anketi zagaragaje no kwerekana ubushake mu gufatanya na Espagne kurangiza icyo kibazo.

Ku birebana rero no kuba Karenzi Karake yavanwa mu gihome by’agateganyo, umwunganiye yavuze ko Leta y’u Rwanda yamwishingira rwose kandi ikizeza umucamanza ko Karenzi Karake atazatoroka u Bwongereza.

Ku birebana n’aho yaba mu gihe Karenzi Karake ategereje iburanishwa ry’urubanza n’umwanzuro warwo, umwunganira yahaye umucamanza adresi z’amazu abiri akodeshwa na ambasade y’u Rwanda i London ariko akaba adatuwemo ubu , anagerekaho ko umucamanza aramutse atizeye iby’ayo mazu, ashobora kwemerera akazaba kuri adresi y’inzu ituwemo na Ambasaderi ubwe. Umucamanza abajije ibyerekeranye n’ubudahangarwa bw’inzu nk’iyo ya Ambasaderi, umwunganizi yavuze ko Ambasaderi w’u Rwanda yiteguye gusinya impapuro zivana ubudahangarwa ku nzu bazacumbikiramo inkotanyi Karenzi Karake muri icyo gihe cyose.

Umucamanza yabajije abunganira inkotanyi Karenzi Karake kumubwira umubare w’amafaranga y’ingwate baba biteguye gutanga kugira ngo rwose bigaragare ko uwo Karenzi Karake azakurikiza amabwiriza azahabwa yose kugira ngo ategererereze hanze iburanishwa n’umwanzuro by’uru rubanza. Abunganira Karenzi Karake bahise bongorerana hagati yabo, banavugana na Ministri w’Ubutabera w’u Rwanda hamwe na Ambasaderi w’u Rwanda bari babicaye inyuma, maze babwira umucamanza ko biteguye gutanga ibihumbi 200 by’amapawundi. Umucamanza yabyumvishije ariko ababwira ko umuntu wo mu rwego nka ruriya, uregwa ibyaha biremereye nk’ibyo ashinjwa, atagwatirirwa munsi ya miliyoni y’amapawundi. Umwunganizi wa Karenzi Karake yavuze ko iramutse ariyo yemejwe n’umucamanza nayo bayitanga.

Umucamanza yanabajije niba, aramutse yemeye kumurekura by’agateganyo, bashobora gutanga numero ya telefone igendanwa inkotanyi Karenzi Karake yahora afite aho ari hose kugira ngo igihe abapolisi bamushakiye bamubone. Umwunganizi yemeye ko iyo numero ya telefone bayitanga rwose.

Umucamanza yababwiye ko aramutse yemeye ko Karenzi Karake yarekurwa by’agateganyo yategekwa kujya yitaba kuri stasiyo ya polisi ya hafi y’aho yacumbikirwa. Umucamanza yabahaye urupapuro ruriho urutonde rwa za sitasiyo za polisi i London, abasaba guhitamo stasiyo ya polisi imwe iri hafi y’imwe muri ya mazu abiri akodeshwa na ambasade ariko adatuwemo ubu. Ambasaderi yahamagaye Bwana James Uwizeye, umwe mu bakozi ba Ambasade wari wicaye mu cyumba cy’indorerezi, maze abafasha guhitamo sitasiyo babwira umucamanza.

Ibyo byose birangiye, umucamanza yahise abwira uregwa n’abari aho bose ibyo ategetse.

Yemeye kurekura inkotanyi Karenzi Karake by’agateganyo kugeza igihe umwanzuro w’urubanza rwo kumwohereza muri Espagne uzafatirwa.
Umucamanza akimara gutangaza icyo cyemezo, Cherie Blair yahindukiye areba Ambasaderi na Ministri w’Ubutabera ba Leta y’Inkotanyi bari bicaye inyuma ye, maze yerekeza igikumwe cye hejuru, nko kwerekana ati ‘turagitsinze’!

Paul Kagame: the Pol Pot of Africa?

Kagame

Kagame’s rule is characterized by human rights abuse, political repression, ethnic persecution, extrajudicial killings, nepotism, and Corruption. Kagame’s forces are believed to have committed horrible war crimes that can amount to a genocide.

It’s like all dictators learn from the same school, the same teacher. Dictators’ actions are always history repeating itself. In this article, I am going to analyze striking resemblances between Paul Kagame and Pol Pot.

A little background about Pol Pot:

 pol-pot1

Pol Pot ( guerilla name) was born Saloth Sar. He is seen here in this undated photo giving a speech.

Until his death, Pol Pot was the leader of a movement known as the Khmer Rouge. Pol Pot became the leader of Cambodia after a guerilla war, his rule was a dictatorship, by the time he was deposed, he had already killed around 2,000,000 people through extrajudicial killings and through horrible, ill conceived policies.

Pol Pot versus Paul Kagame

1) They both took power by force.

These two men, Pol Pot and Paul Kagame, become leaders of their respective countries after a guerrilla war. Pol Pot led a movement called the Khmer Rouge, this movement consisted of teenage peasant guerillas. Paul Kagame led a movement called the RPF-Inkotanyi, a movement that took power in a bloodbath.

Khmer Rouge. Notice how young they look!

Inkotanyi-2

Kagame’s troops in the jungle. After four years of a brutal war in which his troops killed everything that breaths on their way, humans, cattle  and sheep alike, Kagame took over the leadership of Rwanda in 1994. He reigned in a rule of terror ever since. Kagame rules Rwanda with the same brutality he used while in the jungle.

2) They reigned in a rule of terror.

Pol Pot adopted a form of communism based on Maoism and Stalinism, then carried it to extreme. He wanted Cambodia to be an agrarian society that is pure, free of foreign influences. At gun point, Pol Pot emptied the cities and forced people young and old alike, to work in the fields under harsh conditions. He outlawed religion, schools, money etc, he closed his country to the outside world. Doctors were killed, as were most people with skills and education that threatened the regime.

Trucks came and took away crops. Under Pol Pot, people died from exhaustion, starvation, and diseases. But many people died from extrajudicial killings for Pol Pot did not tolerate any opposition. Pol Pot is notorious for his “Killing Fields”, places where those suspected of disloyalty were executed.

Pol Pot especially persecuted members of minority ethnic groups (the Chinese, Muslim Chams, Vietnamese and Thais who had lived for generations in the country, and any other foreigners) in an attempt to create a ”pure” Cambodia.

Before he invaded Rwanda, Paul Kagame must read the biography of Pol Pot and drew a lot of lessons from it. Paul Kagame does not tolerate dissent and has his own “Kiling feilds” . His notorious secret services best know as DMI hunts Kagame’s critics day and night, inside and outside Rwanda. They use any means necessary including torture, poison etc.

Paul Kagame has outlawed political parties (only those that do not pause a treat are allowed). People in Rwanda are not allowed to criticize or voice their opinions or their concerns. The media is censored; no journalist can work freely in Rwanda.

Paul Kagame introduced his own extreme agrarian reform. Peasants are forced to grow one crop dictated by officials. This policy is creating headaches for peasants, for there in no enough customers to buy what they grow, if they get lucky and find customers, the money they make is not worth the trouble. They do not make enough money to buy other foods they need. Any resistance to that policy is dealt with ruthlessly. Though Kagame is not trying to take the country back in medieval days and actually welcomes western investors with open arms, his development plans benefit him and his immediate entourage. Kagame and his close friends have become extremely wealthy while the rest of Rwandans got poorer and poorer.

Paul Kagame is persecuting ethnic Hutus. No Hutu can hold a high post in the administration or in the army. Hutus are brutalized, humiliated, jailed, tortured day in and day out. They are sent to prison on trumped up charges, they are denied jobs simply because they are Hutus.

Rwanda. Jail

Forced labor. Hutus are jailed on trumped up charges. Conditions in Rwanda prisons are inhuman. Genocide against the Hutu population is underway in Rwanda today

Kagame purged Rwanda of all educated Hutus who could have threatened his dictatorship. Doctors, teachers, ex soldiers, politicians, business persons were shot, bombarded en masse, tortured,  killed by worn out hoes, akandoyi, cut out with bayonnettes or simply left to rot in prison on trumped up charges. Hutus are not allowed to mourn their loved ones who perished under kagame’s dictatorship and extrajudicial killings. Just like the Khmer Rouge, kagame’s Inkotanyi killed even hutu kids. One of the methods used was Just like Khmer Rouge, to hold a child by the legs, and smash the head against a wall or against a tree. Hutus have been marginalized and many have been forced to free the country. Kagame sends killing squads on foreign soil to hunt Hutus and all opponents.

The notorious kami prison is one of Kagame’ s many killing fields. Defectors claim that the nyungwe forest is also another killing fields. Many people suspected of being a treat to the Kagame regime are believed to have been killed there, then burned.

Akandoyi is a method of torturing someone. The victim’s arms are tightly tied behind his back, so tight that the victim’s bones crack.

Agafuni ( a worn out hoe ) a preferred killing tool of Paul Kagame and his Inkotanyi. The victims head is smashed with a hoe. This was a preferred method because it saves bullets and it hurts the victim and makes him die a really horrible death.

3) Getting away with their horrible crimes and US support despite obvious poor human rights record

pol-pot

Pol Pot in his last days. Pol Pot got away, he died without being held accountable for his gross human rights violations.

Interestingly, despite obvious human rights violations, Pol Pot enjoyed considerable support fro the United States. Pol Pot was enemy with Vietnam so were Americans. Americans looked the other way and ignored his crimes.paul-kagame

Kagame is getting away with murder thanks to his western supporters the US and the UK being at the forefront

Paul Kagame enjoys considerable support from the Americans as well. The motives behind the Americans supporting such a monster ( they must know about his killing fields and his war crimes ) is unknown. We can only speculate that they are after Congo’s natural resources. But why allow such human rights violations? There has to be another way to get to Congo, other than a bloodbath and genocides.
