Les FDLR et les interahamwe : un problème inter-rwandais

Il y a lieu de se demander où se situe la responsabilité de la RDC sur cette question. Il s’agit bel et bien d’une question rwandaise qui stipule une réponse appropriée du Gouvernement rwandais élude sa responsabilité depuis des décennies, la renvoyant paradoxalement au gouvernement de la RDC, avec la compréhension complaisante et la fuite en avant de la communauté internationale.

Faut-il rappeler, aussi douloureux que soit ce souvenir, que le génocide de 1994 au Rwanda, s’est passé entre Rwandais, sans aucune implication des Congolais.

Congress to investigate Kagame’s spy actions against Americans with Pegasus

Last year, the world was shocked to learn that Rwandan President Paul Kagame was using Israeli spy software, Pegasus to spy on his perceived enemies. They include Americans. One American citizen he targeted is Carine Kanimba. She found out the security on her phone had been compromised when she was in Belgium advocating for her father’s release.

Kanimba said, “It was bad enough that they kidnapped my father, tortured him, and robbed him of his legal rights. Now we find out that they have listened to my conversations with the US State Department, Belgium Foreign Minister Sophie Wilmes, and our attorneys. This adds insult to injury.”

When we arrived in Kinshasa a week before the fall of Mobutu.

Hotel Rwanda’ hero’s family file $400m suit against gov’t

Paul Rusesabagina is serving 25 years in prison in Rwanda on terrorism charges which his supporters say are a sham.

Published On 30 Apr 2022

The family of Paul Rusesabagina, whose heroism during the 1994 Rwandan genocide was depicted in the Hollywood film Hotel Rwanda, have filed a $400m lawsuit in the US over his alleged abduction and torture by the government in Kigali.

The lawsuit names the government of Rwanda, President Paul Kagame, and other senior officials including the former justice minister and intelligence chief.

“The complaint alleges that the Government of Rwanda and high-ranking Rwandan officials conspired to facilitate and execute an elaborate plot to lure Paul Rusesabagina from his home in Texas to Rwanda, where he would be tortured and illegally detained,” the family and his lawyers said in a statement on Saturday.

Pourparlers de Nairobi. Une nouvelle opportunité aux groupes armés pour retarder la venue de la paix

« Le gouvernement congolais ne négocie pas avec les groupes armés, mais les incite à désarmer. » C’est de cette façon que Serge Tshibangu, mandataire du Chef de l’Etat justifie la cacophonie qui se déroule à Nairobi au Kenya entre les délégués de la présidence de la république et les groupes armés opérant en RDC. Inciter les gens qui ont fait de la violence leur mode de vie par la simple parole sans connaître leurs motivations. Possible. Car, même l’enfer est pavé de bonnes intentions. Qui peut vraiment croire à pareille justification qui, pour moult raisons, paraît non seulement comme une insulte à la nation et à tous ceux qui ont perdu leur vie à la recherche de la paix à l’est de la RDC, mais surtout comme une sorte d’amateurisme sur les questions de la violence armée dans la région des Grands Lacs africains singulièrement à l’est de la RDC ?

Portrait: Paul Kagame, les ombres du président rwandais

Qui est Paul Kagame ? Comment a-t-il transformé un pays sorti exsangue d’un génocide fratricide ? “The Times” revient sur le parcours du président rwandais alors que son pays et le Royaume-Uni ont signé un accord de sous-traitance du droit d’asile “off-shore”.

Envoyer au Rwanda, dont l’histoire récente est l’une des plus sanglantes du monde, des migrants vulnérables qui avaient pour objectif d’entamer une nouvelle vie au Royaume-Uni ? L’idée peut sembler à tout le moins saugrenue.

Ce n’est certainement pas le genre d’accueil auquel s’attendent les Afghans qui ont fui Kaboul quand leur pays est tombé aux mains des talibans l’année dernière. Et s’il faut en croire l’expérience – car des accords semblables de traitement des demandes d’asile ont été conclus par le passé entre le Rwanda et Israël et le Danemark – ces réfugiés ne resteront pas longtemps sur le sol rwandais.

Hotel Rwanda: why does Kagame want to take in Britain’s asylum seekers?

If President Paul Kagame has been tracking the furore over Priti Patel’s plan to send asylum seekers to Rwanda, he’s been doing it on the hoof. Kagame moves constantly these days: the news broke while he was en route to Barbados after a visit to Jamaica. In the past two months he has been to Congo-Brazzaville, Kenya (twice), Zambia, Germany (twice), Egypt, Jordan, Qatar, Mauritania, Senegal and Belgium.

How the president of one of Africa’s poorest nations can afford all this travelling is a puzzle, and the fact that his Gulfstream jet is supplied by Crystal Ventures, his Rwandan Patriotic Front’s monopolistic investment arm, raises interesting budgetary questions. In a country where checks on the executive have been whittled away, the dividing line between a ruling party’s business interests and the presidential expense account is distinctly blurred.

“LET CHOGM 2022 SET A GROUND FOR AN INCLUSIVE INTER RWANDAN DIALOGUE” Open Letter to Queen Elizabeth II

OPEN LETTER TO :

  • Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, Head of the Commonwealth.
  • Heads of States and Governments members of the Commonwealth. (all)
  • Secretary General of the Commonwealth

RE: LET 2022 CHOGM SET A GROUND FOR AN INCLUSIVE INTER RWANDAN DIALOGUE

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Your Majesty,

Your Excellencies,

 It is decided. Irreversible. Or almost. The Commonwealth of Nations, an organization whose values and principles are democracy, good governance, human rights, rule of law amongst others, is going to hold its highest meeting in a liberticide country, Rwanda[1]. For a common citizen, this is heart-breaking. Why? Because in a country under dictatorship, where top leaders have no respect of their own people they are supposed to protect, the hope is turned to external forces, and the Commonwealth is a such force. You can imagine what a disappointment it can be to wake up to the news that your hope, your expected advocate is supporting your persecutor! The leadership of ISHEMA Party, a political organization in opposition to the ruling party RPF, takes the liberty to alert you on what you might not be aware of and could harm the good image the Commonwealth citizenry has of the noble organization. At the same occasion, we request your mediation between the government of Rwanda and the opposition through an inter Rwandan dialogue to shape the future of our nation where “never again” shall have sense.

I. Kagame, the Commonwealth Chair-in-Office (CIO)

One of biggest achievements in the process of self-realization of any dictator would be to be legally recognized as the Head of more than 50 countries from all corners of the globe. For Mr Kagame, this would not have happened, had the leader of Rwanda respected the Constitution of 2003 which provided that “under no circumstances may anyone serve more than two presidential terms”. The President whose role is to guarantee the protection of the Constitution failed his mission, not by omission, rather by a deliberate action aimed at self-aggrandizement, self-enrichment, and exclusion as well as deprivation of others’ rights on political participation and competition.
