Another Rwandan Opposition Party Born

A group of Rwandan exiles living in London, UK have formed a new political party to oppose the governement of President Paul Kagame back home. The new party is called Rwanda People’s Party-IMVURA.

The President of the new party, John V Karuranga in email to a shortwhile ago said it will be launched this week.

“We are informing that a new political party will be launched this week. You will be communicating to you details soon,” Mr. Karuranga’s message read.

The details include an introduction of 5 pages, 11 pages on Rwanda’s Prospects and Perspectives and 46 pages on the Party Programme.

RPP-IMVURA is the 4th party formed this year to oppose Kagame who seeks another term as President in elections due in August.

Other opposition parties include PSI-Imberakuri, Democratic Green Party of Rwanda and FDU-INKINGI.

None of these opposition parties has been allowed to register so far. Early analysts are wondering: Will RPP-IMVURA manage where others are still stuck?
