This might sound like a threat, but its the reality-the only way to cure Rwanda’s problem is to topple the current leadership. What we have in Rwanda today, is a psychotic criminal that has taken the entire populace of the region hostages. The best way to cure the regional problem is to tell the truth and also cure it.
Some people might be holding their breath that-uh.., not another genocide! The answer to that is a big No, and it won’t happen. As for the first time in the history of Rwanda, the oppression has not been directed to a particular ethnic group:be it Tutsi,Twa, Hutu,and Abaswayili, but an entire people. Those that understand and have lived the revolutionary process of Rwanda, will tell you that previously, it was about one group(Tutsi or Hutu) toppling one another and replacing the status quo with their own ilk. However this time, its a very different ball-game, as we see Tutsi, Twa, Hutu, Abaswayili and Congolese sharing the same pain….this pain is not only shared by those on the ground but also with the diaspora community-80% of Rwandans have a blood relationship of some-kind in Congo, and its heartbreaking watching your relative’s plight on TV screens.
Today Rwandans leave under fear and can’t even discuss social problems that affect them for fear of being killed,locked-away,exiled or even their limbs chopped off. What we have in place for society, is indeed an open prison. No….No, this cannot be allowed to continue and we have to stop it regardless of what support the Tyrant might have in different parts of the world, we shall take the fight to him. Enough is Enough!! Even a mouse when pinned in a corner, it will put-up a fight…..
Everyday we get many different messages from officers within the military that they’re counting on us and we shouldn’t let down the populace as the suffering has become unbearable to take anymore.The Youth are being denied their dreams of a good education, family life, travelling abroad, etc. and instead sent to fight endless meaningless wars in Congo that only benefit Kagame.
That’s why its very important for those officers still behind Kagame to wake-up and see the light and join their friends and relatives in Ihuriro Nyarwanda before its too late. Don’t forget that its those that love you and Rwanda that are talking to you-Even Fred Rwijyema would be saying the same thing to you today if he was alive!!The same message also goes to CNDP cadres. This is your last chance to do the right thing for the first-time in your lives-abandon Kagame’s nonsense and work with positive forces to build a better future. Listen to what the world is saying and do the right thing.
The other main thing that is hurting Rwandans, is the community relationships in the region-today Banyarwanda are labeled killers, warmongers and arrogant. However, its not them that are benefiting from endless suffering of other people, but criminal Kagame and his clique of criminals.
The arrogance of Paul Kagame is so infectious that its eating up Rwandese social fabric, to the point that they can’t even see the bigger picture of Tomorrow. The arrogance is so infectious that it led to disgraced former British Cabinet Minister Andrew Mitchell to behave like his boyfriend, Paul Kagame-abusing a public servant is what led to his downfall. The cop was so lucky that Andrew mitchell never slapped him, as Kagame is fond of slapping Generals for fun.
Paul Kagame and His Mentor, Yoweri Museveni
The Psychotic Tyrant recent told his mentor, Tyrant Yoweri Museveni, that he has never at any-time stopped Congolese plundered minerals from crossing via Rwanda, why are the west now playing a different tune??? He wondered almost crying! That’s why western governments are not ready to see their Congo fixer, Paul Kagame leave now, because their Alibaba caves will be no more and are very keen to impose M23 killers on Congolese.
Just only Kivu in the last five years,western companies made USD 24 trillion-which stands in stark contrast to almost three-quarters of the population in Congo and Rwanda who live below the poverty line. That’s why they’re so keen to coat the Rwandan populace with developmental mantra. However, the reality remains that the lives of 90% of the populace have not been improved.
The picture that has been portrayed of Rwanda as a successful and model country for the rest of the world to emulate is very deceptive.This Narrative has been packaged and sold to the world by a very aggressive PR machine, but behind the story is a very ruthless and genocidal despot, Called Paul Kagame.
When you visit Rwanda for the first-time after carrying in you head visuals/images of horrific things such as: dead bodies, blood scattered everywhere,people cutting and chopping anything that moves, etc.
Of-course you’ll be amazed to find nothing of the sort is happening-everything has been cleaned up and everyone is moving in an orderly way and not chaotic.
Definitely you’ll go back to your country and tell everyone that, Uh, Rwanda is a clean and organised place: the streets are well maintained, the traffic and street lights work.
Now, this story will be passed on and people will be encouraged to visit Rwanda-but before they visit, in their heads, they’ll be carrying that dark gruesome image, and after visiting Rwanda, the same narrative will be told over and over.
The fact about Rwanda well managed clean roads is not a new thing that’s how Rwanda has always been-for those that had been to Rwanda before the war in 1990 can support me on this.
Most of the comparison made, is with countries that are 20 times larger than Rwanda-of course it will be logical for a tiny place to be cleaned and well-maintained.
However,the landscape also helps with cleaning the roads as few roads are flat-Rwanda is a country that is hilly and when it rains, roads are naturally cleaned. The other aspect is also the road system that was constructed by the previous socialist regime of Habyarimana, like any socialist government in the world, they did a great job with roads. I should also make another point here, that of cultural trait.
Its a bad thing among Kinyarwanda speaking people to be dirty. its one of the pillars of being a Munyarwanda.
What is so sickening to 90% of Rwandans,is the developmental hype that some western governments keep using to shield Kagame’s autocracy. The fact remains that, Rwanda has always been that way and nothing-new.
The Myth about Rwanda, is the well use of Donor funds and zero tolerance of Corruption.
However, this is not the case-the regime in Rwanda is one of the most corrupt entities in the world, the corruption is managed and run by Paul Kagame and his relatives in a very sophisticated way.
Though on the surface Rwanda might look like a government to the world, but its indeed, a tiny clique(less than 100) of people that execute and controls everything. In Kinyarwanda, its called Akazu(little house).
Just early this year, Janet Kagame (the tyrant’s bitch) used donor money to transport 200 guests from abroad to her birthday bash-and only 15 local Rwandans were invited. The Next day her brother, Richard Murefu, used the same plane to UK, with a few friends to watch a premiership game. “Long live the British tax-payer for donating sweet money”. He was heard bragging!
Who is Wo is the Rwanda Criminal Ring:
Jack Nziza- He is easily the most despised individual in the republic of Rwanda. He is particularly close to the first lady and labeled “her errand boy”. It is through Jack Nziza that Jeannette rules, disposing of enemies, planting her extensive network of spies in all sectors of Rwandan society( business, health, Govt, army,…) is carried out by him. Although he is a brigadier General, he has no field experience and is reported to have failed his senior officer’s course in Zambia. That does not stop him from being untouchable in the army and greatly feared by both his seniors and counterparts. Simply put, he runs the army on behalf of the Kagame’s.
Jack has planted spies in all sectors henceforth:
-POLICE : Faustin Kalisa
-MEDIA : Patrice Mulama / Arthur Asiimwe
-PARLIAMENT : Kaboneka Francis
-JUSTICE: Ngoga Martin
-ARMY: Dan Munyuza and Richard Rutatina
-FOREIGN EMBASSIES: Amb. Eugene Kayihura
-PRIVATE SECTOR: Notable among the hundreds of local businessmen, the ones that stand out most are Ntazinda, Rushema, Alexandre, Ngarambe…….
. The twin to jack Nziza! He is the civilian equivalent. He makes or breaks careers in Rwanda at the behest of the Kagame’s, while enriching himself in the process. All kinds of people are known to line up at his office to get a business/political blessing from him. You only have to look at his protégés in the places he has worked in….. RRA, Ministry of commerce, Ministry of Finance and now Ministry of local Govt. Each of these institutions have been staffed with brothers, in-laws, cousins, village friends etc linked to James Musoni/wife or Mrs. Kagame’s.
. He of the famous bombardier jets! He is fronted in many of the Kagame’s businesses, but technically viewed as incompetent and inept hence him losing the high Ministerial profiles. He abandoned his wife in Scotland with 6 children and is known to be a lousy skirt chaser.
Dr Emmanuel Ndahiro
. Former head of national security agency and another errand boy (he is known to detest his fellow errand boys as they all compete for the boss’s ear). He has recently fallen from grace and banished to the RDF/RPF Archives department for failing to assassinate General Kayumba Nyamwasa in exile thus bursting his egotistical bubble. Shrewd, cunning and unashamedly devious, he has sacrificed many friends and foes alike on Kagame’s sacrificial table. He could easily be described as a sex addict for the number of concubines he keeps! This is a man accustomed to taking big “commissions” in exchange for an audience with president kagame. One only need to see where he lives and the assets he has acquired both in Rwanda and South Africa. His wife represented a Kenyan cement factory “blue triangle” belonging to President Moi’s son which was used to supply cement to build the current Ministry of Defence (also known as the Pentagon). Such is the extent of his corruption.
General Charles Kayonga. Under his reign as chief of General staff, the army has waned in popularity, morale and lack of a direction as a result of his paralyzing fear of Kagame which has ruled him ineffective! The scandal involving his theft of hundreds of cattle belonging to the Bagogwe in congo will forever be his legacy and haunt him for a long time. A bogus General who does not get along with his counterparts because he is widely known to be a tattle-tale.!
General Fred Ibingira. An unforgivable Illiterate who is also the eyes and ears for the Kagame’s when it comes to idle gossip in the army. President Kagame put him on the commission to look into down-sizing land belonging to fellow officers not knowing that he was one of the biggest land holders(and still is).
. After a brief recycling, she has been brought back from the dead. This is a woman whom the first lady had banished from presidential court but has shown the first couple that she is willing to help mend their image both at home and abroad. At the moment, she is in charge of winning Rwandan diaspora back to RPF before they can be swallowed by RNC, FDU-INKINGI and other opposition parties. She does this because Kagame can only trust her with RPF funds, used in buying loyalties.
Ambassador Eugene Gasana. Eugene is Rwanda’s ambassador to the UN based in New York. He is the Mr £1200 a night Mandarin Oriental’s presidential suite while Kagame was attending the UN General Assembly in NYC early this year. Many Rwandans questioned his appointment because he has no academic background to back such an appointment let alone the experience. He is related to Jeannette Kagame and could be the only one they trusted to be their children’s guardian. Given that, all the Kagame children go to school both in New York and Boston. Any other ambassador would not take lightly to being assigned baby-sitting duties other than Eugene and Agnes Gasana! He run down ALTEL before being deployed as Rwanda’s ambassador to Germany, where he was in charge of purchasing the latest Mercedes Benz models in Kagame’s presidential fleet and German custom designed suits and dresses for Mr and Mrs Kagame.
. Richard is Madame Kagame’s brother and front man for many of her businesses. She bought two of Rwanda’s largest tea estates and Richard helps her run them.
Richard Murefu is also the main fuel supplier to the Rwandan army and jet fuel supplier to the Civil Aviation Authority through Egide Gatera, a local business partner of Mrs Kagame.
Richard Murefu also profits from the big Concerts staged by the Ministry of Youth through his events management company that he runs with another ‘artsitic’ brother, Mutsar.
Mutsar Murefu, the elder brother of Mrs Kagame runs Contact FM, the biggest (richest )private radio station in Rwanda.
Pichette Sayinzoga. Pichette is the permanent secretary in the Ministry of Finance and married to President Kagame’s nephew Byusa. She was barely 30yrs of age with only two year’s work experience before being thrust into the position of permanent secretary, Ministry of Finance. The presidents careless spending of the treasury was proving tricky with other Ministerial officials therefore the need of using a relative to safeguard his secret siphoning/spending. This lady is said to run the Ministry of Commerce indirectly.
Her husband, Byusa, the son of Paul Kagame’s elder sister, is fronted by Kagame in many of his business dealings and offshore accounts that are registered in his names. He can be found at the Kigali Golf club playing golf all day…..
Pichette has an older sister working as the Human Resource manager in BANK POPULAIRE.
Within this same bank, works another Jack Nziza operative called Allan Nsenga. These two people are used by the first lady to access funds for her various businesses because this bank has a huge cash flow.
This bank is used to deposit salaries of civil servants posted outside of Kigali and Rwandan peasantry.
The Sayinzoga girls are daughter’s to Mzee Sayinzoga who is charged with the commission of Demobilization and integration of retired army servicemen. This commission receives huge funding from govt and private grants!
Innocent Gakwaya. He heads the National social security Fund in charge of pensions. He is married to the Presidents sister, cathy. He contracted one of the first Lady’s cousins to build the multi-million dollar headquarters of the NSSF.
Flora Nsinga. She is married to Richard Murefu (brother to Jeannette Kagame) and heads the human resource department in Bank de Kigali (BK). She and the Managing Director James Gatera oversee Kagame’s interests in the Bank as it is also used to fund many of their projects.
. Agnes is the formidable Minister of Health and die-hard fan of Mrs Kagame.
It is through Dr Binagwaho that the first lady accesses donor funds from the GLOBAL Fund among many that the west grants Rwanda’s Health sector. Agnes is famous for sidelining many of her counterparts that have stood in her way in the medical field. She is a trusted friend and confidante of Mrs Kagame.
Constance Mukayuhi Rwaka. Constance is a member of parliament and serves on many of the parliamentary commissions entrusted with making sure all the Presidents bills are passed without objection. She is related to Jeannette Kagame by marriage. Constance is the widow of Ndoba’s elder brother. Ndoba is the husband of Jeannette’s late sister, Maggie.
Ruki and Diane Karusisi. Ruki is one of President Kagame’s trusted bodyguards after Willy Rwagasore. His sister Diane Karusisi Ngendo runs the country’s National Statistics Agency. She is the one in charge of doctoring many figures to flatter the president’s pet projects and exaggerated figures like the 7% economic growth or how business friendly Rwanda is.
. Ines is chief of staff in the President’s office. Known to be forthright and tactful, she came highly recommended from the Office of the first lady.
The Kalimba Family : Rosette, Armand, Basil and Linda Kalimba. This family was Jeannette Kagame’s adoptive family when she moved to Uganda before the RPF takeover in the 90’s. She lived with them in Jinja up to 1994, and she has rewarded them handsomely.
until recently was the director of ORTPN (she was the miss Gorillas in the mist).
-Armand Kalimba fronted for the Kagame’s in Rwanda metals, a company that traded in minerals and precious stones, like coltan from congo, until he was sent as the trade Representative in Rwanda’s embassy in South Africa.
-Basil Kalimba represents Mrs Kagame’s interests in Real Estate in South Africa and Dubai.
-Linda Kalimba works as the trade Representative in the Rwanda embassy in London after a long stint as a legal secretary in Rwanda Revenue Authority.
The Kayihura Family. This is another adoptive family to the first lady of Rwanda when she moved to Kenya from Burundi before her marriage to Kagame.
She has rewarded them handsomely too.
-Yolande Makolo, the daughter to Speciose kayihura, is the Communications guru to the President
-Yvonne Makolo, also daughter to Speciose Kayihura, is the Marketing Officer for MTN Rwanda(Kagame is the majority shareholder).
-Vivian Kayitesi, the daughter of Kaana Kayihura, is the head of Investments at Rwanda Development Board.
-Teta Rutimirwa, Gasumuni’ Kayihura’s daughter is the head of Urban Planning in the newly formed Lands office.
and Minega Isibo
, journalists at the New Times (Kagame’s mouthpiece).
In Part two we shall look at how the revolutionary fruits can be harvested.
