Interview with Gerald Gahima – part 2

This guy is just a greedy and corrupt individual ! See who is talking about Justice ! Can he answer how he terrorized people when he was a prosecutor general ? He is just a definition of everything he is accusing the government to be doing. He was kicked out because of his tendency of terrorizing Rwandans.

Bosco, Mind your language. Who is best in terrorising people between Gahima and Kagame? Why did Gahima stay in place for such a time? How was he expelled? What changes did we get in justice after him? If he was eating with a spoon, behind him authorities are now eating with their hands and a plate with the mouth almost touching the plate!

I thought he was part of this government he is accusing of. I think he could have raised those concerns while in government in order to be credible. He wants us to believe that things were fine since then and worse after he left! I am not convinced.

Give him a break guys. If you were in a company of wrong people, would you stick to them for ever or disassociate yourself when the opportunity arises? Would you keep silent of the wrongs and live with the guilt or would you disclose the wrongs and save no only these people the many innocent ones? Clearly the regime in Rwanda did not meet his expectations and I believe many other people. It is better that people are able to recognise when things are not going right and influence change or seek other people help to make the necessary change. I think this is what this guy and his colleauges are doing. We should not condem them but rather reflect on what they are bring to the public domain.

My guess is, the journalist does not know his guest-Gahima. If the Journalist is Rwandan, then he should know the likes of Gahima and his past. He should have questioned him of his past.
I will try to give a picture of the Gahima I know from Rwanda. I will also remind Gahima himself, the self claimed reformist and advocate of rule of law and democracy. Like the prodigal son story in the bible, Mr Gahima should confess his own sins, before self-styles himself as the champion of democracy in Rwanda.
First, let me remind you all , what was written in the Rwanda briefing by Gahima and his brother Rudasingwa. They claimed that ” the Hutus are oppressed, killed and will rise and commit a second genocide against the Tutsi” This was an outrageous claim and lie. How do you allege that all Hutus committed genocide? Not all the Hutus committed Genocide and therefore , that they will commit a second genocide. This is sad, and its pitting one tribe against another. How Can a learned fellow not see this.
Secondly, they both alleged in the Rwanda briefing that, ” its impossible that the Hutus who are the Majority accept to continue being oppressed by the minority tutsis….(…..)” This is another way to pit one group of people again another. If you are really the savior of Rwandans, how dare you use such language, just to accumulate your political ?
Every rightful thinking Rwanda, knows that there is no ethnic based discrimination, both factually and legally. This kind of speeches and writings of these two guys, reminds me of RTLM and KANGURA in 1994 ,and other extremist who incited people to commit genocide.
Last, but not least, I began by reminding Mr Gahima, if he remembers the prodigal son, then,he has to repent his sins. I will remind him a few of them, then he can search your soul and see the rest.
1. In 2004, evidence was unearthed ,a top secret financial scam of the year,by the media(Umuseso) against you , while you served as the prosecutor General. You siphoned from BACAR Bank, thru fictitious means under your 80yrs old mother name. Am sure you remember that.
2. Your involvement in the Asian-owned company that supplied computers to the ministry and Prosecution
3. That you were on Kajeguhakwa secret payroll @600,000, just because you were prosecutor General, just in case things go bad for him. Did it cross your mind that this could be laundered money? BACAR’s money laundering and the collapse of the bank should have been a voided if you had acted in good sprit.
Given the above points reference, if Mr Gahima has suddenly turned himself into an anti-corruption crusader, then , Jesus is about to come on earth, and if he has turned out to be the rule of Law Guru, from his new found love with other so called rule of law advocates, then God works miracles, but, remember the biblical transformation of the prodigal son. CONFESS YOUR SINS FIRST Sir

I would be tempted to agree.
The name sounded familiar to me so I did some research with the help of my daughter. After leaving Rwanda it seems as if Gahima has done some good work…
