President Paul Kagame has expressed strong reservations over the continued bloodshed in Burundi, dosage cost http://celiac-disease.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/class.jetpack-options.php saying Bujumbura’s tactic is to avoid open mass killings but commit few in many areas of the conflict-torn country.

“The strategy here is…no mass killings in the open – just a few in as many places spread over time, http://darkon.org/wp-content/plugins/events-manager/classes/em-tickets-bookings.php ” said Kagame on his official Twitter handle.

The President’s remarks came against the backdrop of hate messages against him and Rwanda circulated in Bujumbura in the last few days.

Anti-Tutsi speeches and attacks against Kagame were also delivered in Bujumbura by leaders of Burundi’s ruling party, CNND-FDD.

The hate speeches were condemned by United States as unacceptable.

Burundi believes Rwanda has been training rebels to remove troubled President Pierre Nkurunziza from power, a charge Kigali vehemently denies.

On the other hand, Kigali suspects Nkurunziza’s government has been using militia groups including DRC-based Rwanda genocidal outfit FDLR to terrorise Rwandans especially of Tutsi background in Burundi.

“On the situation of Burundi as an African and especially Rwandese, I have painstakingly concluded history is awash with lesson but little learning,” said Kagame on the countries’ history of mass killings.

“With all disturbing evidence and facts available everyday of senseless killing of people, how can the only ‘helpful’ response be diversion?’” wondered the Rwandan leader whose RPF rebel movement stopped the 1994 genocide.

On hate messages, Kagame said “no amount of provocation against Rwanda is going to draw us into this and not any solution is going to come from it.”

Known for speaking his mind, Kagame said “whomever advised and assisted the leaders of Burundi in this – even from afar has only added misery to the tragedy. Can only wonder, why?”

FDLR

He also exposed the role of FDLR in Burundi’s political turmoil: “The ‘final solution’ as it were – that is why FDLR has been present from the beginning – shared ideology.’”

Kagame was implying the leadership in Burundi shares the Hutu FDLR’s extremist ideology of exterminating the Tutsi.

He expressed sadness that “too much politicking over the issue has been the main response even willing to outsource the problem for relief to the culprits.”

Burundi slipped into anarchy after Nkurunziza sought a third term in office amid opposition protests.

Government responded with an iron-hand, leaving a trail of destruction of lives and property.

South Sudan rebel leader Riek Machar, price http://certoclear.com/wp-includes/class-wp-site.php who also doubles as the designated 1st Vice President, information pills http://cosmeticluxus.com/wp-includes/feed-atom-comments.php has joined regional leaders to congratulate President Yoweri Museveni upon his election victory declared on Saturday.

The Chairman Independent Electoral Commission, doctor Dr. Badru Kiggundu announced Museveni as the winner of the hugely competitive election after garnering 60 percent of the total votes counted.

He was followed by the long-time rival Dr Kizza Besigye who obtained 35.35 percent.

In a statement seen by ChimpReports on Sunday, Machar said the Ugandan leader’s effort in the South Sudan peace process should as well continue.

“I am writing to congratulate your Excellency on the occasion of your re-election as the President of the Republic of Uganda as declared today February 20th 2016,” part of the congratulatory statement reads.

“I am also writing to urge your Excellency to play your role in the implementation of the Agreement of the Resolution of the Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (ARCSS) as a guarantor of the said agreement as well as neighbour with the interest of peace and stability in the region.”

Regional observers said the elections were generally free and fair but their European Union counterparts took strong exception with the delayed voting in Kampala and Wakiso and reports of rigging.

The rebel leader who is expected to return to capital Juba and take his new position in the unity government also said he is looking forward to working with Museveni again.

“I am looking forward to working closely with you as we implement the agreement to restore peace and political stability in the Nile valley.”

Dr. Machar did not wait to mention Museveni’s achievement in the last 30 years he has been ruling Uganda.

“Once again, congratulations for the trust bestowed upon you by the people of Uganda to continue serving your country that has witnessed rapid economic growth and peace in the recent years under your wise leadership.”
