Welcome to
Africa Great Lakes Democracy Watch Blog. Our objective is to promote the institutions of democracy,social justice,Human Rights,Peace, Freedom of Expression, and Respect to humanity in Rwanda,Uganda,DR Congo, Burundi,Sudan, Tanzania, Kenya,Ethiopia, and Somalia. We strongly believe that Africa will develop if only our presidents stop being rulers of men and become leaders of citizens. We support Breaking the Silence Campaign for DR Congo since we believe the democracy in Rwanda means peace in DRC.

No legitimacy to shame results (12.08.10)

Endorsing the results of this masquerade would be to reward violence as means to access and maintain power in Rwanda. This will be a slap in the face of the democratic forces that we represent in our efforts to convince Rwandans and the youth in particular that peaceful and democratic competition is possible in Rwanda.
Rwandans will lose all confidence in the international community and in the democratic process.
We consider the present administration as lacking political legitimacy as they did not get a proper mandate of the people received through a free fair and transparent process of electing their leader.
We urge the international community, the bilateral partners and Donors to reject the sham electoral process and its outcome and to put pressure on the Rwandan Government to organise new free, fair and transparent polls.
