Shell’s Arthur Blick Wins Source of Nile Rally

Arthur Blick Jnr emerged winner of the Source of the Nile Rally over the Easter Weekend

President Paul Kagame has warned that Rwanda is “a small country” but the ability of her citizens to fight back against injustice remains solid, viagra http://deltadiner.com/wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/products/photocrati_nextgen/modules/frame_communication/module.frame_communication.php Chimp Corps report.

“Rwanda, we are a small country. But we are a proud people. We are ready for peace and we are ready for war to fight for our rights,” said Kagame on Tuesday in veiled warning to the DRC-based FDLR genocidal militia and its supporters.

Speaking at the 21st Rwanda Genocide commemoration, Kagame described as “incomprehensible” the choice of western groups which are preaching freedom and civil liberties to provide shelter to genocidaires.

In a shocking revelation, Kagame said, “people are still being hunted even to this day. There are many stark evidences.”

He pointed at the Eastern Congo, where the allied armies of Malawi, South Africa, DRC and Tanzania crushed the rebel M23 resistance in 2013, to paint a picture of the hypocritical western bloc.

Kagame  explained that, “War was fought by ethnic Congolese Tutsis who were fighting for their own survival,” adding, “Rwanda was not in any way involved in that war.”

He said the M23 rebels’ cries were ignored.

Kagame wondered why the M23 insurrection became an immediate concern of the international community yet it has continued to ignore the presence of the FDLR in DRC for the last 21 years and the security threat the militia poses to the region.

Rwandans across the country are today April 7 commemorating the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi for the 21st time, honouring the million lives lost in a hundred days.

Known as ‘Kwibuka’ – the Kinyarwanda word for ‘remember’ – this year’s commemoration is focusing on fighting Genocide denial and revisionism.

The genocide agenda was implemented against the Tutsi just hours after the assassination of Hutu President Juvenal Habyarimana in 1994.

Tutsis were hunted down and killed with pangas, axes and clubs while others were locked up in buildings or churches and then killed en mass using explosives.

The systematic cleansing of the Tutsi was stopped by the Rwanda Patriotic Front army which fought deadly battles with the government forces for several months before capturing Kigali.

The defeated government soldiers fled to DRC (then Zaire) where they were welcomed by then President Mobutu. They would later commit atrocities against the Tutsi of Congolese origin.

An attempt by the defeated soldiers to return to Rwanda by force was thwarted by the now well-armed RPF.

The International Community had given FDLR up to January 2, 2015 to disarm and demobilise or face military action. The group refused to comply.

Consequently, the United Nations Brigade refused to participate in the offensive against FDLR, saying DRC commanders were previously involved in human rights abuses.

Martin Kobler, head of the UN peacekeeping mission in DRC (MONUSCO) told the Security Council in March that the command structure of FDLR remains intact despite claims of successful military operations against the group by DRC forces.

“Surrendered FDLR elements are still in the camps of Kanyabayonga, Walungu and Kisangani where they maintain intact a perfectly well functioning military structure,” he said.

“A few FDLR combatants have disarmed, yes, but their demobilization has not yet started, let alone their repatriation.”

Dignity

President Kagame today said Rwanda “cannot give up or let anything stand in our way. To do so would be to dishonour the lives we honour here today.”

He said the country’s past has given citizens “the unprecedented strength to face our challenges.”

He said Rwanda will not only remember to restore dignity to those who have been killed but also to the living.

“We were bruised but we are still standing and we are not going anywhere.”

Regarding the country’s future, Kagame said Rwanda “has changed for good and forever. We are a people who give ourselves dignity.”

He said while the hunting to kill the Tutsis was done by both Rwandan and foreigners who spread the gospel of who had to be killed, “Today, hunting down to kill is no longer easy but it is done in the form of denial and denigrating survivors.”

Kagame emphasised that the victims were hunted down and killed by those with whom they were supposed to share equal rights.

Kagame and First Lady Jeannette Kagame today laid a wreath at Gisozi Memorial to honour the victims of the Genocide against the Tutsi before lighting the Flame of Hope in remembrance of all the victims.
