Recently the Voice Of America Africa Division in its show called Straight Talk Africa hosted an interesting show on Rwanda. As the man at helm of the show is none other than Dr.Shaka Ssali. A Panafricanist of all times. As he always says when he goes for a commercial break, the Africans must keep hope alive. But the question I should ask him when I meet him is how could poor Africans keep hope alive among these hyenas in the name of rulers.
Among the pannelists or guests of the show was Rwandan Ambassador to USA,Mr Kamonyo,The Hotel Rwanda Rusesabagina Foundation, the hero of the book an ordinary man, Mr.Paul Rusesabagina, and the famous and a hero to many Rwandans, the social justice activist,the UN Defense council lawyers in ICTR Arusha Prof.Peter Erlinder who was recently arrested and incarcerated by Kagame for the articles he wrote revealing how Kagame killed Habyarimana and more than 6million people since 1990s.
When the show started, it looks normal but as it progressed the seat became to hot for the poor Kagame's propogandist Mr.Kimonyo. When he was asked why Rwanda continues to use genocide as a ruling platform Mr.Kimonyo jumped into their routine rehearsed song of "principles." I must say that Kigali rulers have a well designed propaganda documents that they study and cram every day in order to survive the heat of humongous truth that the electronic media and socila communication is bringing out than ever before. So when Mr.Kimonyo talks about principle not willing to face the question from Dr.Ssali head on, not himself it is because he knows very well that they have been surviving on lies or uongo in Kiswahili.
As Shaka said, Rwandans do not need the so called principles they need a working nation characterized by genuine reconciliation among Rwandans. Who does not know that the RPF started killing Hutus since 1990s. As one of the friends of mine told me about the conversation he hand with his Rwandan Tutsi friend the Aglican bishop of Ruhengeri Mr.John K. Rucyahana that when he was the director of the world vision Kenya he provided all the medical needs of the RPF invaded Rwanda. He also visited the RPF battlefields where he witnessed RPF butchering the Hutu population of Byumba in 1992. Who doesn't know that RPF under Kagame leadership killed Habyarimana which triggered the genocide. Who does not know that if the RPF had not killed Habyarimana in 1994 Hutu people could not have gone to the extend of killing innocent Tutsis in 1994.Who does not know that RPF killed 200,000 people in three day at Kibeho. Who does not know that the RPF under Kagame and Nyamwasa leadership killed over 6million of Hutu Rwandans and Congolese in 1997-2001. It is a shame for Kamonyo nubumonyo bwe to continue putting salt in our wounds saying that he want to talk about principles of how Kagame did not kill Habyarimana and so on.Of how if RPF had not killed Habyariman Hutus could have still killed Tutsis.
Kamonyo should retract his ideology of forming a Tutsiland in the region and fully understand that without USA-UK assistance Rwandans would have liberated themselves from this monster called Kagame and his cronies.
