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.

President Paul Kagame’s Behaviour In Rwandan Parliament Proves He Is Unfit For High Office

“We have the power of anger…”

June 25, 2015 will be remembered as a sad day in the history of Rwanda. Speaking in Parliament, Rwandan President Kagame addressed the arrest of General Karenzi Karake at the United Kingdom’sLondon Heathrow Airport on June 20. The arrest was executed under European Warrant provoked by the 2008 Spanish indictment of Rwandan military officials for ordering massacres and the killings of Spanish and other European aid workers between 1997-2000. Kagame called both the Spanish and British authorities as “rubbish” for their respective roles in Karake’s arrest.

The President then unleashed his anger at the U.S. Congress’ House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, for holding a hearing on May 20 to examine Rwanda’s deteriorating human rights record. Kagame described businessman Tribert Rujugiro and David Himbara as “petty criminals and thugs” for allegedly financing and organising the congressional hearing.

Sadly, on the same day Rwanda President was abusing the British, Americans, and fellow Rwandans, the U.S. State Department released its “2014 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices.” The Report is further indictment of the Kagame government. According to the Report, “The most important human rights problems in the country were disappearances, government harassment, arrest, and abuse of political opponents, human rights advocates, and individuals perceived to pose a threat to government; disregard for the rule of law among security forces and the judiciary; and restrictions on civil liberties.”

Adds the Report: “Other major human rights problems included arbitrary or unlawful killings, torture, harsh conditions in prisons and detention centers, arbitrary arrest, prolonged pretrial detention, and government infringement on citizens’ privacy rights.”

President Kagame resorts to the old ploy of attacking the messenger and not the message. Kagame should face the reality that he is unfit to govern. A government that is reported to kill, torture, and arbitrarily detain citizens has no redeemable qualities whatsoever. And rather than engineer the scheme of ammending Rwanda’s Constitution to enable himself to cling to power for life, Kagame should peacefully exit the political scene to allow fellow Rwandans to move on.

Rwandans forced to fund Gen Karenzi bail

29E5477800000578-0-image-a-9_1435355500540

Lt Gen Karenzi Karake was arrested by British police on war crimes and genocide charges pending his extradition to Spain.

There are unverified facts about the arrest of Karake Karenzi saying that he sought it to embarrass president Kagame, as did for example the production of BBC Rwanda Untold Story, so he cannot pretend to run for a third term.

However, whatever the circumstances of the Rwandan general’s arrest in LONDON, the entire Rwandan population inside is being affected because they are being forced to contribute to the £1,000,000 bail that has been requested by the judge to allow the suspect to be available for the court without staying in prison.

Boniface Twagirimana, who is in Kigali, is reporting that in Matimba of Nyagatare, every household is being asked to contribute 4000 RWF to KK Bail Fund, on top of which they have to add another 2,000 RWF to pay for a motorcycle for the police force.

The irony of the request is that, in that area of Byumba, that is where General KK and his killing squads started in 91/92 ethnic cleansing and sweeping it of hutu population to give space to his tutsi community.

Many people are being seriously harrassed and treated as enemies of state in case they show any reluctance to contribute, particularly because they don’t have the means. There is also fear that corrupt officials might use KK Bail Fund to exhort money from the population. Apparently there isn’t even any receipt being provided to prove that someone has contributed.

Rwandans have for many years been squeezed financially by many demands from RPF system without this one even giving them the means to earn a decent income from their labor. There are times that enough becomes enough and one needs to take a step to refuse from being indefinitely exploited.

Like in 1959 when the hutu majority made an end to its centuries-long exploitation by the tutsi monarchy, I think the time has come to end also the RPF discrimitaive and repressive system which uses all means to impoverish the population and keeps it constantly under the lowest of the aspirations: survival.

Forcing Rwandans to fund KK bail might trigger a social revolution.

Rwanda: Ingwate ya Gen Karenzi Karake yatumye abaturage bashyirwa ku nkeke.

Aha ni abaturage mu myigaragambyo bashowemo n’ubutegetsi ngo barwanye ubutabera basaba ko Gen Karenzi yarekurwa.

Mu karere ka Nyagatare mu murenge wa Matimba abaturage baho nabo inkubiri yo kubanyaga utwabo irakomeje! Ubu buri rugo rwategetswe gutanga amafaranga ibihumbi bine (4000frw) ngo yo gukemura ikibazo cy’ingwate ya Karenzi Karake.

Si ibi gusa ngo kuko bagomba no kongeraho ibihumbi bibiri(2000frw) ngo yo kugura Moto ya Polisi! Hari abaturage benshi batangiye kugira impungenge ko iki kibazo cya Karake kigiye gutuma bahohoterwa n’inzego zibanze na cyane ko umuturage ugaragaje ko aya mafaranga ari menshi ngo ahita yukwa inabi ndetse akabwirwa ko ngo ubwo ari mu banzi b’igihugu!
