Translation by Claire Umurungi
The Rwandan directory of military intelligence DMI in collaboration with the national police force masterminded the conspiracy to indict Madam Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza with charges of participating in terrorist activities. Army General Rwarakabije was tasked to hire hutu agents from FDRL that can be reliable and easily influenced to collaborate in the Machiavelli plan.
|Gen.Rwarakabije the Mastermind of Ingabire's Arrest|
Information we received confirms that, General Rwarakabije picked and brought in one of his men from FDRL, a certain Major Uwumuremyi. Uwumurenyi arrived in Rwanda a few months ago with his group. Once in Rwanda he was given a mission to return to Congo to spy on his comrades. He carried out his secret missions on several occasions before they were able to trust him. Information we have confirms that he received a large amount of money to convince him and be confident.
Our informant told us that, when General Kayumba and Colonel Karegeya defected and fled the country, the Kagame’s army intelligent services planned to accuse them of terrorism crimes so that they can be brought back to Rwanda. They also attempted to get them hated; especially that it is known that both men have strong support in the army and civil community of the RPF party.
This plan was made by the Directory of Military Intelligence (DMI), which invented a ghost army called CDF (Coalition of Democratic Forces). Then the Directory issued press releases and tracts. In actual fact, this army group does not exist. It was first invented to create grounds for extraditing exiled army generals back to Rwanda.
When this strategy did not work as planned as South Africa refused to extradite both generals, the plan was redirected at Mme Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza’s arrest, using agent Major Uwumuremyi, especially because her previous accusations were widely seen as false. International community kept condemning these common accusations as a political tool to stifle the opposition to the point that Kagame’s government accepted to undertake a review of the law they are based on.
Secret services carefully planned Victoire Ingabire’s case. When the conspiracy was properly set, the plan was submitted to Kagame who accepted it. He immediately started to use the argument that it is not illegal to indict an opposition figure when they are guilty. He passed on the plan to the police and the prosecutor’s office so that they can start acting on it. General Rwarakabije’s agent, Uwumuremyi, was already prepared to falsely accuse Victoire Ingabire of participating in the formation of the army group.
Kagame kept arguing with international community that it was not illegal to arrest and bring to court someone who threatens national security. This argument is also related to the government swearing in ceremony speech a few days ago. He complained that the international community is asking him to allow space for his political opponents while they, in their countries, punish those who are opposed to their governments: “We know that they arrested a member of parliament because of his anti-Muslim views, but they condemn our arrest of those with genocide ideology”.
He kept hammering the argument that it is not wrong to punish someone who threatens Rwandan national security, that they have no right to call him a dictator. These statements were paving a way to the planned Victoire Ingabire’s arrest.
At this moment, International community, especially donor countries, are putting pressure on Kagame to accept to form a government with his opposition. This way, he would be able to prove that the opposition is made up of criminals. Another reason is that Ingabire was being very competitive to Kagame since she was criticising him publicly and was effectively collaborating with donors on Rwandan political issues. She was being a serious obstacle to Kagame’s foreign policy.
Another thing that was revealed by the information we received was that, as the international community was putting pressure on Kagame, he devised a plan to approach Lawyer Bernard Ntaganda [who is now in prison] to use him to character assassinate Victoire Ingabire. This plan was to lure Ntaganda on their side as they did with many other opposition politicians, such as [Senator Stanley] Safari, who helped destroy their own parties in exchange good posts.
Information stated that [Ntaganda] was met in prison and was asked to sign statements apologizing to Kagame and stating that he disown Victoire Ingabire. In exchange he was to be released from prison and rewarded an important post in the government. He was called in the “1930” Prison Director’s office, at night to meet with those in charge of convincing him. It is stated that he was taken outside the prison to be able to convince even further.
Bernard Ntaganda categorically refused to sign. As a punishment, he was transferred into a solitary confinement in atrocious conditions.
Information also confirmed that it is a strong possibility that Victoire will be given a slow killer type of poison that will put an end to her political career. Equally it is confirmed that special intelligence for diplomatic missions are working hard to convince ambassadors that Victoire Ingabire was part of the terrorist army group.
As soon as she arrived in Rwanda, Victoire Ingabire was accused of genocide ideology and genocide denial as well as of collaborating with armed group FDRL. It is alleged that she provided financial support to the army group.
Today all of these allegations have changed. She is now accused of participating in the formation of a new army wing CDF and of supplying it with weapons. Those who are familiar with these ever-changing charges can notice that this is pure fabrication. On the other hand, they can confirm that this culture within RPF led by Kagame has cost lives of innocent people who happen to have different political opinion from that of Kagame.
