Rwandan President Paul Kagame on the way into ...
The Dictator Paul Kagame
Published by MISNA
Rwandan police have arrested two opposition members in Kigali over the past weekend. The police have not revealed their identity, but notes that they face charges of having intended to organize today a non-authorized demonstration. According to the leader of the Unified Democratic Forces (UDF), Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza, the two are Martin Ntavuka and Anastase Hagabimana, both members of her formation; they were arrested on Saturday night at her home in Kigali where police used force to enter. Other opposition members have been in jail for over a month; they are accused of breaching the security of the state and it appears that the High Court has authorized to release them on bail starting today. Meanwhile, the electoral campaign for the August 9 elections continues and it is being dominated by outgoing
President Paul Kagame.

Rwandan media continue to show images of gatherings of tens of thousands of people the last of which during the past weekend in the Ngororero district. There is little news about the campaign run by Kagame’s three challengers, whom some have described as “companions” rather than adversaries; they are Damascène Ntawukuriyayo, current vice-president of the National Assdembly, Prosper Higiro, vice-president of the Senate and Senator Alvera Mukabaramba[AB]
