Democracy wind from North Africa can not hit Rwanda, assures General Kagame

According to General Kagame, what happens in Tunisia, Egypt and other countries in North Africa can not happen in Rwanda. His best argument: he has been elected by 93% of the Rwandan voting population. Mr Mugenzi from London reminded him that other dictators like Mubarak had also ‘won’ the elections in their countries, but Kagame knows his people and he knows no-one in Rwanda would try to do what young people and political opponents have done elsewhere in Africa. Is he right or is he in denial?
Listen to his answer given during the live interview broadcast on BBC on Tuesday 22 March.

In Rwanda people live under extreme intimidation even traumatism from the past experience of kill & hide rebellion tactics of RPF and there are thousands of thousands of intelligence inpecting every move you make every word you say and the chain can reach they boss Kagame within few hours the next thing is to fabricate wrong accusation for you either genocidaire,FDRL supporter,etc this is evident during the so called elections where they steal votes for him and threatening anyone who dares to ask for clarity of things ,In Rwanda you canot have peace if you belong to an other political party except those corrupted politicians that RPF manipulate to play the role of presidential candidates as they are given lots of millions to waste in the so called electoral campaign These are betrayors of the rwandans as they can not speak out the extreme injustice of RPF in accumulating national resource to enrich a small privileged group of people as sole reason to be repatriated from Uganda,Imagine the long suffering that free journalists have underwent under Kagame’s order some killed ,tortured, some others are refugies because they tried to disclose the illegalities of Kagame’s regime most people remember Charles Kabonero, Rugambage ,Agnes etc…
Can you imagine the way University students are starving whereas most of so called leaders children are being paid expensive schools in Europe and US including his son at West point military Academy can you imagine the cost of jets and fuel they use to travel there is coming from our poor parents taxes and then for us, we are even refuse a 25000Rwf loan? and saying that they do not understand our reasons to be poor? Can anyone in this country get a good job without a privileged PRF background? can anyone own a strong business if he can not share profit with powerful RPF members?
As a conclusion rwandan people needs true heros to stop this injustice .

Rwandan people are a frustrated lot.The other day, a foreigner working in Rwanda come back in Kenya for Christmas holidays and was the democratic space between Rwanda and Kenya and was really sympathetic about the situation in Rwanda. He talked about how people in Rwanda are highly oppressed and intimidated to a point where even a first time visitor can notice.Can the Arab revolution take place in Rwanda? The answer is a resounding yes because history shows that it those most oppressed that result to such means as used in Northern Africa to bring about regime change. The extent to which Rwandese are oppressed leaves no other alternative but mass action. This of course will result in the deaths of thousands because Kagame will not hesitate to order the millitary to shoot the protesters but this will not prevent the people from ousting him. The international community needs to stop ignoring the plight of ordinary Rwandese citizens and put pressure on Paul Kagame to allow the media and the people has a say in national matters.
