Rwandan, Burundian and Congolese opposition political parties and civil society organizations operating in the United States of America have pooled their efforts together to denounce Kagame’s visit to the White House.
One may wonder how did this renowned criminal -also known as the African Hitler- end up on the Obama’s guest list. Paul Kagame’s human rights abuses, his dictatorship against the Rwandan people, his criminal record in Rwanda and abroad are not consistent with the American values and ideals. In many regards, Paul Kagame is worse than Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe and other dictators who were not invited to Washington.
Paul Kagame is a corrupt leader who has embezzled millions of public funds to finance his lavish lifestyle. He has killed and/or imprisoned hundreds of journalists and his political opponents, including prominent opposition leaders such as Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza of FDU-Inkingi, Deo Mushayidi of PDP-Imanzi and Bernard Ntaganda of PS-Imberakuri, just to name a few. He has sent his army to DRC and has used child soldiers and war proxies to loot natural resources, rape women, terrorize the population or kill anyone opposed to his criminal enterprise. As a result, more than 6 million Congolese and Rwanda refugees have been killed in DRC.
Dear African friends, Congolese, Burundian and Rwandan of North America, let’s unite in this critical moments so that we may get rid the Great Lakes region of this dictator. Join many other freedom fighters across North America who vowed to free in no time all of the oppressed and voiceless people of Rwanda, Congo and Burundi. This is a great opportunity for all of us to proudly show our commitment to the peaceful struggle for peace, freedom and democracy in the Great Lakes region of Africa.
Should you need more information or wish to support our efforts, please feel free to contact our event coordinator, Mr. Felicien Hategekimana, Mobilization Coordinator, FDU-Inkingi American Chapter at firstname.lastname@example.org or 269-779-6655.
We look forward to seeing you in Washington DC. Bring your friends, your stories, your drums, trumpets and Vuvuzela.
