Ways and means of fighting the oppressive Kagame regime.
We need to put an end to the oppression of a handful minority Tutsi led by Kagame against the whole people of Rwanda under the allegations that the Hutu people had perpetrated the Genocide against the Tutsi minority. Indeed, all non-biased media press and researchers have broadly demonstrated the Machiavellian tactics used by Kagame to spread chaos and destruction to allow him to seize the power by force of arms. Subsequently he set up an official deceitful narrative destined to hide his own responsibility in organising and perpetrating the genocide of the Rwandan people, the invasion of the DRC and the oppression of the Rwandans that followed it up to now.
Hutu, Tutsi and Twa desperately need to unite to isolate their oppressor, Kagame. Let’s start demonstrating and protesting where ever we are, in schools, at works, in the markets, in the embassies… everywhere to denounce the heavy burden Kagame has been putting over the shoulders of the people.
Kagame has seized our mushy lands. He had amputated our fields without any compensation to build the so-called community centres “Imidugudu”. Not content, he had deprived us of our ownership on the lands and imposed us to hire them from the State by paying fees for what we had inherited from our ancestors. Above all, he forced us to deal with one crop exploited for the sole benefit of the cronies’ of his Regime. The end results are obvious, that people are dying of hunger and famine in droves. How then does he dare pretend to have alleviated poverty?
In fact the whole country is under a mantle of lead, a sort of “omerta” on the diversity represented by our various ethnicities which were always there from old. No one is allowed to express his opinion, let alone to express some critics’ even though being constructive remarks. In brief, the country lives silenced, frustrated and mercilessly exploited. That doesn’t it make the future totally bleak and doomed to more bloody conflicts? Such a perspective is a broad highway towards complete destruction of the nation.
It is high time that all leaders of the various political parties of the opposition, especially those who can operate from abroad under protection of the host countries laws, to look more closely towards ways and means to sit together, discuss seriously, draw plans and set up a platform from where they join all their forces to enjoy some meaningful weight in the political horizon of our motherland, Rwanda. Not to be at the trail of the flow of events, but strive to be proactive. Once that platform would have been found, the Kagame Regime will be the first one to get scared.
It is in our utmost interest, if we want to install a genuine Rule of Law, to go to the political battlefield in close ranks. I wish Political Leaders to renounce their immediate interests for the sake of unity in the battle and be committed to compromise to achieve better fruit.
Indeed, the people inside the Rwandan Republic will feel encouraged, comforted by their valuable children and therefore will regain hope and strength to close ranks behind united leaders really committed to the liberation of their people.
As we are celebrating the African Day, remembering its sensitizing slogan: “Africa Unite”, we should emphasize and find enough energy to transpose that slogan today and ask our committed leaders to make it theirs, increasing pressure on the oppressive Kagame Regime and saying unanimously: Opposition political leaders, Unite.
God bless you all.
