Exiled ex-RPF leaders create new opposition political party, the “Rwanda National Congress”

Australia

Exiled Rwandan military officers Gen. Kayumba Nyamwasa and Col. Patrick Karegeya have formed a political party, the Rwanda National Congress (RNC), Daily Monitor has learnt.

Other leaders of the new party include Jerome Nayigiziki, Gervais Condo, Dr. Gerald Gahima, Jonathan Musonera, Dr Theogene Rudasingwa, Joseph Ngarambe, Dr Emmanuel Hakizimana and Jean Paul Turayishimye.

Rwanda’s Information Ministry spokesperson Ignatius Kabagambe confirmed knowledge of these new developments. He, however, could not comment further on the matter. “It is true we have formed a new political party with the aim of resolving the explosive political impasse that prevails in Rwanda,” Gen. Nyamwasa told Daily Monitor in a telephone interview.

Gen. Nyamwasa said they would undertake widespread consultations with other political parties within Rwanda for appropriate interventions. “We now have a co-coordinating committee put in place to consult with other political parties in Rwanda to see how we can effectively end the political crisis in the country,” he said. “We encourage all Rwandans of good will to overcome fear and mistrust, and to dedicate themselves to the pursuit of the ideals, values, principles and goals that this proclamation embodies,” the party leadership said in a statement yesterday.

Party ideals

They said the RNC has been built on a democratic foundation that values stopping violent conflicts, including genocide and grave human rights violations, promote individual, community and national reconciliation and healing.

The leadership said it intends to eradicate human rights violations, create a conducive and progressive environment for inclusive social and economic development, establish, nurture and institutionalise democratic governance, particularly the rule of law.

If Gen. Kagame can not change to embrace and comply to cardinal principles of democracy, the RNC is possibly the only means to help stabilise Rwanda politically. But you should not think of retaliating against the Kagame regime because, while it is your own making (RPF and the history of Rwanda is clear about this fact), indeed, a peaceful and stable Rwanda is what yuo seek to restore.

I welcome the idea of the new political party, because the dictatorship in Rwanda has gone too far. And the people are no longe recognized as human beings, they have turned into scared puppets of the so called President Kagame. Who is insecure and scared of the people who oppose his ideas of ruling.
