RWANDA: IT IS NOT ABOUT A SELF-CLAIMED ONLY STRONG LEADER BUT DIVERSITY OF LEADERS

Written by Michel MUSHIMIYIMANA Rwanda’s recent constitutional change through the engineered referendum by the ruling party, Rwanda Patriotic Front (RPF), has strongly reverberated Rwandans and the international community in general. Surely, for most of the Rwandans, especially young ones, this amendment has become a nightmare as it allows the incumbent authoritarian ruler; President Paul Kagame nicknamed “The Monster” to run for life and this means a long lasting repression, persecution and injustice for Rwandans. Since 1994 when the RPF took power after a 4-years-war which shed so much blood of…

THE RECENT GOVERNMENT OF RWANDA ATTACK ON HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH IS DISTURBING

By: Dr. Charles Kambanda Edited By: Jennifer Fierberg On June 2, 2014, the Minister of Justice – on behalf of the government of Rwanda (GoR) –  issued communiqué “assessing” Human Rights Watch (HRW) activities and conduct in Rwanda. The GoR broad accusations against HRW fit in five categories: (1) HRW is a tool for some unnamed “authorities” to which HRW pays allegiance; HRW is not independent. (2) HRW breached the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)  between the GoR and HRW; HRW acts and/or reports on issues beyond the MoU (3) HRW…

CHRISTIAN SAVIORS & THE ADOPTIONS INDUSTRY IN CONGO EXPLOITING AFRICA’S MOST PRECIOUS RESOURCE: CHILDREN

First Published: 18 June 2013 Jennifer Fierberg & Keith Harmon Snow An investigation in the adoptions industry in the Democratic Republic of Congo reveals that the U.S. Embassy is facilitating the trafficking of Congolese children. Interpreting the bible to prophesize the adoption of children as a soul-saving imperative, affluent U.S. Christians have spawned a new and massive movement using their privileges and entitlements to take children from the Congo, Ethiopia and other underdeveloped nations. Meanwhile, the exploitation of children through ‘adoptions’ is but one prong in the hydra of Western military-industrial…

Does the U.S. Support Destabilization in the DR Congo?

By: Jennifer Fierberg, MSW One of the most profound and saddening statement I have read recently was made by Kambale Musuvuli, a Congolese activist and spokesperson for Friends of the Congo; he said, “Congo is a test for humanity. Future generations will ask why it took two decades to stop killing of Congolese reaching 6 million dead.” Why indeed. The more one follows the developments in Central Africa the angrier one should become.  Weeks ago a subcommittee hearing of the U.S. House of Representatives was held with guest speakers including…

Behind The Presidential Curtains: A Summon to my good old Comrades

With the on-going continued cut of President Kagame’s Foreign aid by his long time Western sponsors for the last week or so due to his continued cruelty to our Congolese brethren I feel compelled to speak on this subject. Kagame has done this by directly supporting the M23 rebel group which is on the brink of capturing the city of Goma among others in the Kivu Province of the DRC and with a plan of creating a new Republic of Kivu autonomous from the great Congo. Unfortunately this manuver disregards…

President Paul Kagame on a Special visit to Uganda: But why?

By Rwema Francis and Jennifer Fierberg, MSW The Congolese Government’s reaction against the continued support of Rwanda to their enemies in the Congo has led President Kagame back to Uganda to plead for help from His Excellence Yoweri Museveni of Uganda. He was in Uganda yet again in order to seek help because he has nowhere else to turn to this time.  The main reason for President Kagame’s visit is to ask for President Museveni to allow Kagame’s (M23 Rebels) fighting in the Congo to cross over and hide in…
