My Turn: In the Rwanda trial, endless lies
In Rwanda before April 6, 1994, each major political party had its own militia. MRND had Interahamwe; MDR had Inkuba; and PSD had Abakombozi. On April 6, the plane carrying the president of Rwanda and the president of Burundi (both Hutu) was shot down as it approached Kigali International Airport. The militias then formed an alliance to counter the Rwandan Patriotic Front, a political and military organization whose members were mostly Tutsi and operated out of Ugandan military bases.To keep out the truth about the origins of the Rwandan genocide, the Kigali regime continues to use all possible means, such as national and international justice institutions, to track down, demonize and harass Rwandan asylum seekers. Some of these people who do not support President Paul Kagame's tyranny are accused and charged with genocide or embezzlement. Some who are not directly accused of genocide have had their family members in jail and their properties confiscated by the government in Rwanda.
