The dictator Kagame at UN

The dictator Kagame at UN
Dictators like Kagame who have changed their national constitutions to remain indefinitely on power should not be involved in UN high level and global activities including chairing UN meetings

Why has the UN ignored its own report about the massacres of Hutu refugees in DRC ?

The UN has ignored its own reports, NGOs and media reports about the massacres of hundreds of thousands of Hutu in DRC Congo (estimated to be more than 400,000) by Kagame when he attacked Hutu refugee camps in Eastern DRC in 1996. This barbaric killings and human rights violations were perpetrated by Kagame’s RPF with the approval of UK and USA and with sympathetic understanding and knowledge of UNHCR and international NGOs which were operating in the refugees camps. According to the UN, NGO and media reports between 1993 and 2003 women and girls were raped. Men slaughtered. Refugees killed with machetes and sticks. The attacks of refugees also prevented humanitarian organisations to help many other refugees and were forced to die from cholera and other diseases. Other refugees who tried to return to Rwanda where killed on their way by RFI and did not reach their homes. No media, no UNHCR, no NGO were there to witness these massacres. When Kagame plans to kill, he makes sure no NGO and no media are prevent. Kagame always kills at night.

The salient features of Paul Kagame's dictatorship

23.11.2012



As dictator, Kagame shares all characteristics of dictatorship with many world dictators.  


Rwanda Patriotic Front (RPF) as One Party, One Leader and One Programme

RPF is  the only party that is allowed to exist and it is the  Kagame's own party. Other  credible and independent political parties, civil society associations and organizations are not allowed to function. These are banned. All opposition to the dictator Kagame  is ruthlessly suppressed. Hitler used to say, "Swastika or gallows". Kagame has no respect of human life. He kills or exiles anyone he considers to be against his plans, decisions, instructions and policies.

One Overall Leader




Full faith is  concentrated in the Kagame's leadership, as one man leader for  everybody, everywhere  and  everything.  Kagame is equal to  national unity, economic progress, liberation and patriotism. He is considered to be a symbol of national prestige. He even believes that he has a role to play at the international scene than any world leader. He is the final authority in every matter and his word is supreme. Consultations  with the population about  the design and content of the constitution, policies and programmes are never organised. The constitution and legislation are  regularly reviewed  and changed to suit Kagame’s needs and to ensure he stays on power as long as he wants. The dictator internationalises  domestic problems such as human rights violations, justice, his support to war in DRCongo, his  own role in the Rwandan genocide, Rwandan ethnic tensions, etc. He always blame foreign countries for not having solved these problems.

One Programme

The whole country is supposed to have one political programme and it is the programme of  Kagame's own party. No alternative thinking  and proposals are allowed. It is within this context that he is forcing Rwandan people to contribute to his Agaciro Development Fund. 
Women are used as a political tool to project Kagame's image  to the outside world  and to  influence the  electorate and the parliament outcomes. As gender equality strategy, he believes that women having seats in the Parliament is enough while women’s wellbeing at the village level has continued to deteriorate considerably.
Fear is used as an instrument to control society and to discourage people from questioning the regime. Police and intelligence officers are everywhere and control each citizen 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. People are terrified into collaborating and making sacrifices for the national interest ( e.g. forced contributions to the Kagame’s Agaciro Development Fund). Any  questioning of decisions, practices and policies by  Kagame is an act of treason and  undermine national security (e.g., imprisoned Political Leader Ingabire Umuhoza).

The national economy is controlled by Kagame and RPF

All financial and economic resources and assets (e.g. banks, access to credit, foreign aid, properties, fertile lands, parastatal institutions,etc.) are in the hands of Kagame, RPF and the minority Tutsi in power. Kagame does not  believe in  the support  that he receives from the international community because this may minimise the recognition of his acclaimed  economic achievements. The contribution of foreign aid to the annual budgets are minimised by  superficially inflating the national contributions. Kagame does not care about employment and wellbeing of his own people. Social and economic indicators are manipulated. Poverty  and unemployment are  not recognised or discussed.  The GDP is inflated annually by the contributions of foreign aid and does not reflect the final goods and services produced within the country.  
Together with his supporters, Kagame decides which profitable  business to take, to buy entirely or to participate in as shareholders. Private properties to buy for redevelopment or for personal uses are chosen by Kagame and his crony and are bought at minimal prices. They have the power to buy your property at the price they decide. Rights to property do not  exist in Rwanda.

Absence of Individual Liberty and Rights

Rwandan people do  not enjoy any liberty or rights under  Kagame's rule. Maximum obedience to Kgame's instructions is equated to the maximum liberty. People are not allowed any liberty of speech, association and press. All agencies of administration, education, propaganda such as schools, colleges, radio,TV, newspapers, private and public institutions and are controlled by  Kagame. In the words of Mussolini "people do not want liberty but they want law and order. Under the pretence of national security, violation of rights is institutionalised. This is particularly the case in regard to privacy, freedom of expression and freedom of choice.
Telephone calls ( internal and external)  and private emails and websites including e-groups are monitored by Kagame’s intelligence network.  For the last 18 years , all Tutsi have access to  free  services and opportunities ( education, health, credit, etc). All Rwandan websites, TV and Press  feature  Kagame’s propaganda and stories. No independent website and media exist in Rwanda.
Important issues such as human rights, poverty, ethnic equality, democracy, income inequality, injustice are taboos and any discussion about them is considered as an attempt to undermine or to deny Rwanda’s artificial economic achievements.
Kagame  nurtures open hostility towards journalists, lawyers and human rights who question the regime. Such people are branded as dissidents and traitors, are removed from their jobs, are exiled, imprisoned, disappear or are prevented from entering in the country when they are foreigners. Free expression in the media and in the arts is muzzled, making them into mouthpieces for the regime. People are appointed into any public job on the basis of support for the regime. Exiled dissidents  and political opponents are silenced, assassinated or genocide perpetrators. " No criticism against Kagame  is tolerated. People are supposed to believe and obey. Democratic slogans of liberty, human rights, equality and fraternity are replaced by slogans like duty, discipline, liberation,  patriotism and sacrifice. Mussolini asserted, "Liberty is a dead carcass, I kick it."

National Glorification

Kagame  glorifies Rwanda  to an illogical extreme. A mad sense of patriotism and liberation must be inculcated in the minds of  all  people.  The military is glorified and imitated at school, in parades, hymns, pledges, ceremonies, flags, uniforms, sport and external war adventures. Kagame  glorifies  war. War is considered to be essential for the normal health of body-politic. The dictator believes that war can be replicated and have the same effects anywhere in the world( e.g. Museveni war against Uganda with the support from Tanzania, Kagame’s war to Rwanda with the support  from Uganda, now Kagame’s war to Democratic Republic of Congo with the support by Kagame).  The state is all powerful and it must enhance its prestige. Kagame adopts a war-like policy and glorify brute force as the means for achieving national greatness (e.g. Supporting war against Democratic Republic of Congo). In the opinion of Hitler, "In eternal warfare, mankind has become great; in eternal peace it will be ruined." To quote Mussolini, "War is to the man what maternity is to the woman."All sections of the nation must support Kagame's wars including religious leaders  and Rwandan academics who recently wrote a letter to the UN Secretary General  denying Kagame's support to M23. Kagame uses international academics and consultants to support his dictatorship. His international supporters are always paid for the work commissioned by Kagame. Kagame does not trust anyone including the members of his family. Kagame always address publicly  to the invisible enemies and to the international community rather than to his own people.

Ideological obsession against potential opponents

Kagame's dictatorial regime is  characterized by the large proportion of political opponents  currently imprisoned. Many  civilian have been executed or disappeared under Kagame's rule. Police and secret police are given draconian, unchecked and almost limitless powers.

Rampant cronyism, favouritism, nepotism and corruption

Since Kagame took power in 1994, his regime is ruled by an organised  network of close  allies and war fighters  who appoint each other into positions of importance and who use their financial clout and the authority of their position to protect each other from exposure, scrutiny and accountability. The resulting elite feeds on power and seeks to enrich itself like a predator, at the expense of the people of the country. Corruption is hidden through the same network which also appoints and supervises anti-corruption officers.

Fraud in elections

Rwandan presidential elections are a complete sham. Voters are manipulated by smear campaigns against candidates even when those candidates are participating  in agreement with and on behalf of Kagame. The members of the National Electoral Commission are appointed by Kagame. The electoral legislation was designed to allow Kagame to win any presidential election. All political parties are members of Rwandan Political Party Forum. Kagame agrees and decides the candidates to compete with in  presidential elections. Political Opponents  have been  thrown into prison and  some opposition candidates have been assassinated, while those who have been in prison are prohibited  from participating in any future  political life of the country. The judiciary collaborates to manipulate and control elections. Fraud and perversion of democratic principles is as predictable as the outcome of such elections.

Conclusion



Kagame's dictatorship is a totalitarian regime which controls each and every aspect of human personality and life, and takes into its fold all human activities in the social, economic, political, educational, religious and cultural spheres. No margin for individual liberty and human rights is left behind. Nothing against Kagame is allowed, everything is for and from  Kagame, everything is Kagame and his RPF, nothing is allowed or exists outside Kagame and his RPF.

  1. Ces faits sont de notoriété publique. Les Occidentaux n'osent rien dire pour éviter d'être assimilés aux facilitateurs du génocide.Ils font de courbettes à Kagamé pour qu'il oublie leur passivité et leur silence complice pendant la planification du génocide.Par ailleurs, les Occidentaux qui ont épousé les belles Tutsi créent partout de lobbyings de défenses des intérêts de Kagamé !

  3. People who make statements praising Kagame have done little research. There are documents at the UN, the archives of George Washington University and Wikileaks that expose him for what he is....Here is one:

-“The enemies of Freedom do not argue ; they shout and they shoot.”

The principal key root causes that lead to the Rwandan genocide of 1994 that affected all Rwandan ethnic groups were:

1)The majority Hutu community’s fear of the return of the discriminatory monarchy system that was practiced by the minority Tutsi community against the enslaved majority Hutu community for about 500 years

2)The Hutu community’s fear of Kagame’s guerrilla that committed massacres in the North of the country and other parts of the countries including assassinations of Rwandan politicians.

3) The Rwandan people felt abandoned by the international community ( who was believed to support Kagame’s guerrilla) and then decided to defend themselves with whatever means they had against the advance of Kagame’ guerrilla supported by Ugandan, Tanzanian and Ethiopian armies and other Western powers.

-“The enemies of Freedom do not argue ; they shout and they shoot.”

-“The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish.”

-“The price good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.”

-“I have loved justice and hated iniquity: therefore I die in exile.”

The Rwanda war of 1990-1994 had multiple dimensions.

The Rwanda war of 1990-1994 had multiple dimensions. Among Kagame’s rebels who were fighting against the Rwandan government, there were foreigners, mainly Ugandan fighters who were hired to kill and rape innocent Rwandan people in Rwanda and refugees in DRC.

SUMMARY : THE TRAGIC CONSEQUENCES OF THE BRITISH BUDGET SUPPORT AND GEO-STRATEGIC AMBITIONS

United Kingdom's Proxy Wars in Africa: The Case of Rwanda and DR Congo:

The Rwandan genocide and 6,000,000 Congolese and Hutu refugees killed are the culminating point of a long UK’s battle to expand their influence to the African Great Lakes Region. UK supported Kagame’s guerrilla war by providing military support and money. The UK refused to intervene in Rwanda during the genocide to allow Kagame to take power by military means that triggered the genocide. Kagame’s fighters and their families were on the Ugandan payroll paid by UK budget support.


· 4 Heads of State assassinated in the francophone African Great Lakes Region.
· 2,000,000 people died in Hutu and Tutsi genocides in Rwanda, Burundi and RD.Congo.
· 600,000 Hutu refugees killed in R.D.Congo, Uganda, Central African Republic and Rep of Congo.
· 6,000,000 Congolese dead.
· 8,000,000 internal displaced people in Rwanda, Burundi and DR. Congo.
· 500,000 permanent Rwandan and Burundian Hutu refugees, and Congolese refugees around the world.
· English language expansion to Rwanda to replace the French language.
· 20,000 Kagame’s fighters paid salaries from the British Budget Support from 1986 to present.
· £500,000 of British taxpayer’s money paid, so far, to Kagame and his cronies through the budget support, SWAPs, Tutsi-dominated parliament, consultancy, British and Tutsi-owned NGOs.
· Kagame has paid back the British aid received to invade Rwanda and to strengthen his political power by joining the East African Community together with Burundi, joining the Commonwealth, imposing the English Language to Rwandans to replace the French language; helping the British to establish businesses and to access to jobs in Rwanda, and to exploit minerals in D.R.Congo.

Thousands of Hutu murdered by Kagame inside Rwanda, e.g. Kibeho massacres
Kagame killed 200,000 Hutus from all regions of the country, the elderly and children who were left by their relatives, the disabled were burned alive. Other thousands of people were killed in several camps of displaced persons including Kibeho camp. All these war crimes remain unpunished.The British news reporters were accompanying Kagame’s fighters on day-by-day basis and witnessed these massacres, but they never reported on this.

The British irrational, extremist, partisan,biased, one-sided media and politicians have disregarded Kagame war crimes e.g. the Kibeho camp massacres, massacres of innocents Hutu refugees in DR. Congo. The British media have been supporting Kagame since he invaded Rwanda by organising the propaganda against the French over the Rwandan genocide, suppressing the truth about the genocide and promoting the impunity of Kagame and his cronies in the African Great Lakes Region. For the British, Rwanda does not need democracy, Rwanda is the African Israel; and Kagame and his guerilla fighters are heroes.The extremist British news reporters including Fergal Keane, Chris Simpson, Chris McGreal, Mark Doyle, etc. continue to hate the Hutus communities and to polarise the Rwandan society.

Kagame political ambitions triggered the genocide.

Kagame  political  ambitions triggered the genocide.
Kagame’s guerrilla war was aimed at accessing to power at any cost. He rejected all attempts and advice that could stop his military adventures including the cease-fire, political negotiations and cohabitation, and UN peacekeeping interventions. He ignored all warnings that could have helped him to manage the war without tragic consequences. Either you supported Kagame’ s wars and you are now his friend, or you were against his wars and you are his enemy. Therefore, Kagame as the Rwandan strong man now, you have to apologise to him for having been against his war and condemned his war crimes, or accept to be labelled as having been involved in the genocide. All key Kagame’s fighters who committed war crimes and crimes against humanity are the ones who hold key positions in Rwandan army and government for the last 15 years. They continue to be supported and advised by the British including Tony Blair, Andrew Mitchell MP, and the British army senior officials.

Aid that kills: The British Budget Support financed Museveni and Kagame’s wars in Rwanda and DRC.

Aid that kills: The British Budget Support  financed Museveni and Kagame’s wars in Rwanda and DRC.
Genocide propaganda and fabrications are used by the so-called British scholars, news reporters and investigative journalists to promote their CVs and to get income out of the genocide through the selling of their books, providing testimonies against the French, access to consultancy contracts from the UN and Kagame, and participation in conferences and lectures in Rwanda, UK and internationally about genocide. Genocide propaganda has become a lucrative business for Kagame and the British. Anyone who condemned or did not support Kagame’s war is now in jail in Rwanda under the gacaca courts system suuported by British tax payer's money, or his/she is on arrest warrant if he/she managed to flee the Kagame’s regime. Others have fled the country and are still fleeing now. Many others Rwandans are being persecuted in their own country. Kagame is waiting indefinitely for the apologies from other players who warn him or who wanted to help to ensure that political negotiations take place between Kagame and the former government he was fighting against. Britain continues to supply foreign aid to Kagame and his cronies with media reports highlighting economic successes of Rwanda. Such reports are flawed and are aimed at misleading the British public to justify the use of British taxpayers’ money. Kagame and his cronies continue to milk British taxpayers’ money under the British budget support. This started from 1986 through the British budget support to Uganda until now.

Dictator Kagame: No remorse for his unwise actions and ambitions that led to the Rwandan genocide.

Dictator Kagame: No remorse for his unwise actions and ambitions that led to the  Rwandan genocide.
No apologies yet to the Rwandan people. The assassination of President Juvenal Habyarimana by Kagame was the only gateway for Kagame to access power in Rwanda. The British media, politicians, and the so-called British scholars took the role of obstructing the search for the truth and justice; and of denying this assassination on behalf of General Kagame. General Paul Kagame has been obliging the whole world to apologise for his mistakes and war crimes. The UK’s way to apologise has been pumping massive aid into Rwanda's crony government and parliement; and supporting Kagame though media campaigns.

Fanatical, partisan, suspicious, childish and fawning relations between UK and Kagame

Fanatical, partisan, suspicious, childish and fawning relations between UK and Kagame
Kagame receives the British massive aid through the budget support, British excessive consultancy, sector wide programmes, the Tutsi-dominated parliament, British and Tutsi-owned NGOs; for political, economic and English language expansion to Rwanda. The British aid to Rwanda is not for all Rwandans. It is for Kagame himself and his Tutsi cronies.

This blog reports the crimes that remain unpunished and the impunity that has generated a continuous cycle of massacres in many parts of Africa. In many cases, the perpetrators of the crimes seem to have acted in the knowledge that they would not be held to account for their actions.

The need to fight this impunity has become even clearer with the massacres and genocide in many parts of Africa and beyond.

The blog also addresses issues such as Rwanda War Crimes, Rwandan Refugee massacres in Dr Congo, genocide, African leaders’ war crimes and crimes against humanity, Africa war criminals, Africa crimes against humanity, Africa Justice.

-The British relentless and long running battle to become the sole player and gain new grounds of influence in the francophone African Great Lakes Region has led to the expulsion of other traditional players from the region, or strained diplomatic relations between the countries of the region and their traditional friends. These new tensions are even encouraged by the British using a variety of political and economic manoeuvres.

-General Kagame has been echoing the British advice that Rwanda does not need any loan or aid from Rwandan traditional development partners, meaning that British aid is enough to solve all Rwandan problems.

-The British obsession for the English Language expansion has become a tyranny that has led to genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity, dictatorial regimes, human rights violations, mass killings, destruction of families, communities and cultures, permanent refugees and displaced persons in the African Great Lakes region.


- Rwanda, a country that is run by a corrupt clique of minority-tutsi is governed with institutional discrmination, human rights violations, dictatorship, authoritarianism and autocracy, as everybody would expect.
