Umeå, Sweden, 04th Jan 2012
Both personally and on behalf of my party, the Rwanda People’s Party, join the international community in grieving with Rwanda and its people, especially the families of the victims of the grenade attack at Nyabisundu, Remera, Kigali on 3rd January 2012 that took lives of five innocent people and more countless injured.
The Rwanda People’s Party stands behind the families, relatives of the deceased and injured ones during this difficult times in which Rwanda as a nation and as a people are going through. We also stand side-by-side with the People of Rwanda in their peaceful struggle for the tenets of democracy, justice, equality and peace.
On behalf of the Rwanda People’s Party, I wish to convey its message of condolence with the following statement: The Rwanda People’s Party deplores the barbaric, cowardly and unfortunate grenade attack in Nyabisindu, Remera yesterday and extends its condolences and deepest sympathy to the people of Rwanda, especially the victims' families.
We believe that the way out of the current political, social and economic instability in Rwanda is through the RPP proposed peace talks, sent to President Kagame on 5/5/2011, but not violence that takes lives of innocent Rwandans.
The primary role of any government is to protect the lives and properties of its people. President Kagame and his RPF government have totally failed to subscribe any of these criteria. We therefore, believe it is in the best interest of President Kagame and his RPF government to resign immediately, paving the way for the formation of the crisis government for the goodness of our country Rwanda.
Rwanda People’s Party, President
