Rwandan citizens react to US attitude towards Rwanda dictatorship
A Message to the US State Department
in reaction to the USA on the 16th Anniversary of the Rwandan Genocide
by JB Uwumuremyi.
Thanks for remembering the victims of the Tutsi genocide. But many Rwandans continue to ask this:
What about the people that were killed by the Tutsis? What about all innocent people that were killed by Kagame and his soldiers from Byumba, throughout all Rwanda, all the way to the Congo?
Were they not humans?
Not all were interahamwe.
The population of Byumba, decimated by Kagame in 1990, were they interahamwe?
How about some justice for them?
In your message, you say that
“Rwanda’s vision for its future is one enlightened by all Rwandans who live together in respect”.
That is what most of us Rwandan want.
But in reality, today Rwanda belongs to a small group of Tutsis from Uganda.
The rest of Rwandans have no room whatsoever in Rwanda. Their rights are abused, stepped upon every single day.
Today, Rwanda has more refugees than any other time in its history. And if you speak up and condemn injustice, you are a genocide denier, an enemy of the state.
Kagame and his Akazu (entourage) are the real threat to the peace and security in the Great Lakes Region.
Before Kagame’s military ventures, the Great Lakes Region was peaceful. Kagame set in motion wars that killed millions of Rwandans and Congolese.
You say that
“The United States will remain a committed partner in Rwanda’s efforts to improve the well-being of its citizens and promote peace and stability in the region”.
If you mean it, help us remove the dictator Paul Kagame because many Rwandans are so sick and tired of him. Sixteen years of him is more than enough.
I find it amusing ( or you are not informed ) when you say that
“the United States applauds Rwanda’s progress and wishes its people continued success in their efforts in securing a peaceful, prosperous and democratic future”.
Democratic? The fake election Kagame is planning so he can secure another 7 years of power, you call that democratic!
Frankly, I find it shameful the fact that the US state department hasn’t stepped out and condemn Kagame and his shameful political games.
Is the US an ally of Rwandans or an ally of dictator Kagame?
If the US is an ally of the Rwandan people, these are the times that the US should act and side with the people.
