The Democratic Liberation Forces of Rwanda (FDLR) warn UN over Kigali’s ‘tactics’

Rwandan Hutu rebels urged the United Nations Tuesday not to succumb to Kigali’s threat to withdraw troops from Sudan if the world body publishes a report accusing the country’s troops of crimes.

The Democratic Liberation Forces of Rwanda (FDLR) rebels, based in neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo, called on the UN to purge its peacekeeping missions of forces it claimed were soiling its image.
The group asked the UN “not to surrender to the manoeuvres, tactics of intimidation and other forms of blackmail that Kigali began to practice… by threatening to withdraw its troops from the UN peacekeeping missions.
“Rather, it’s now or never for the UN to get rid of soldiers that, with hands stained with innocent blood, bring disgrace upon an institution whose mission is to maintain peace in the world,” the FDLR said in a statement.
A draft version of a UN human rights report on the DR Congo accused Rwandan troops of genocide-style massacres in the country in 1996-97.
Infuriated Kigali threatened to pull out its 3,500 troops serving in a UN peacekeeping mission in the Sudan, prompting UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to travel to Kigali last week for talks with President Paul Kagame.
The FDLR urge the international community and particularly the UN… to ensure that no one, without exception, of those who have participated in the genocide of Rwandan and Congolese Hutu escape justice,” added the text.
Some FDLR elements have themselves been accused by Kigali of participating in Rwanda’s 1994 genocide in which some 800,000 people were killed.

The desire to suppress the UN report may not necessarily be coming from Paul Kagame. UK and USA have a lot to do with the rise of Paul Kagame to power, his invasion of Rwanda using RPF, the strategy that led to Rwandan genocide and the genocide in Congo. Kagame is merely a willing mercenary leader who is obeying orders.
The fake UN peace keeping forces which Kagame is threatening to withdraw are actually African young men who have been trained by these two powerful countries in UN Security Council (UK, USA) and put under command of Paul Kagame solely to protect their (UK and USA)interest in the Great Lakes region of Africa.
Those Africans who want to protect Africa’s citizens must not count on the corrupted UN to come to their aid. They must devise new methods of preventing proxies created by the west, like Paul Kagame and Yoweri Museveni, from rising to power only to turn against fellow African citizens they are pretending to protect.
These proxy Africans have sworn to protect foreign corporations’ resources interest in Congo by slaughtering millions and millions of poor Africans in exchange for small gratuities kept in foreign banks. In other words, these proxies have put Africa’s resources in auction and the bids are very, very low indeed. The small amounts of money they get go directly to their bank accounts abroad!

the world of UK and USA cannot overweight to the facts, history and time. they may thwart this year, but surely the blood will speak. After all, who can dare to open his mouth to protect Kagame. for what interest. tones and tones of golds and diamonds are stored in their stores. they have riches which can push them until Crhist comes. are there aware? Killing Hutus has become their daily prayer but the blood has no coulour. Kagame received the mission, but went extramile to kill in a pejorative way, civilians, congolese and …, tutsi and hutu. From now on, let it be known that Tutsi were killed to serve of a bridge to Congo but when they prosecute Hutus, they do not figure out such thing. If kagame had killed wisely, the bahute blood could have been black nor red like theirs[…]. but now it speaks Even if UN succombs to the sharp eye of that pseudo tough man of kigali, the history shall tell… find me in Butare campus
