  • A Runners Inspiring Story - Gilbert Tuhabonye, Genocide Survivor

    in Sports

    An amazing account of faith, running as a national champion, hope and inspiration.  A true story of genocide survival and a second chance to give back as a running coach in America.  As told by Gilbert Tuhabonye.


    Gilbert Tuhabonye, a native of Burundi Africa, a nationally ranked runner and genocide survivor.  Tells how he escaped being burned to death with all his schoolmates, now a renowned running coach in America. An inspiring story every runner must hear.


    Gilbert narrowly escaped an attack on his school as the Hutu’s sought revenge for the murder of the president of Burundi by the Tutsi’s. With 30% of his body burned he escaped a burning building where as many as 200 of his class mates lay brutally tortured and burned to death.  Fortunately, this story ends well as Gilbert now coaches runners in Austin Texas.

    NOBLE MARARA : PAUL KAGAME NA IBUKA ASSOCIATION BATAYE IBABA KURI BBC

    in Politics Progressive

    HOST: Serge Ndayizeye


    TOPIC: PAUL KAGAME NA IBUKA ASSOCIATION BAYAYE IBABA KURI BBC 


    BBC spokesperson said: “The BBC strongly refutes the suggestion that any part of the programme constitutes a ‘denial of the genocide against the Tutsi’. There are repeated references to the mass killings of Tutsis by Hutus in 1994 and that this constituted genocide. The programme also includes an interview with the Director of the Genocide Museum at Murambi, a Tutsi and genocide survivor, and a convicted Hutu genocidaire who spoke of his part in the killing of thousands of Tutsis.

    “The BBC has a duty to investigate difficult and challenging subjects and we believe the programme is a valuable contribution to the understanding of the tragic history of the country and the region, and of the governance of Rwanda over the last 20 years.”

    TWA, HUTU, TUTSI. The truth.

    in Current Events


    I chose to have this show on April 5th because even on April 5th, 1994. Hours before the drop that caused a valley of blood to flow in Rwanda. Some already knew we were going to die and they thought we were nothing but collateral damage...so they let it happen. They let hate and fear drown an entire nation into Death. This show revisits what it means to be TWA-HUTU-TUTSI. and how the inequalities started among the groups that occupied Rwanda. How inequalities still exist in the world we have inherited. This show will also comment and expose the illusions behind the G20 summit in London 2009. The first part will be in English. the 2nd part in Kinyarwanda.

    The Druth about...

    in Politics

    This episode will discuss the futility of taking sides in a military conflict not involving your own country.  We will also discuss topics of current interest to Americans. 


    War is supposed to be a remedy of last resort.  When a nation cannot diplomatically resolve its conflict with either its own people or with another country, war is the final option and should not be entered into lightly.  If the conflict between the two factions involves allocation of resources or religious differences, war is totally unnecessary and should be avoided.  But, when two factions decide that war is necessary to resolve the conflict, other nations not involved in the conflict should not engage in the practice of taking sides.  This will only serve to either prolong the war or to escalate it.  Meanwhile, innocent people will be killed and the blame for their deaths falls not just on the warring factions but also on those who support one side or the other.


    Dru Forseti with his friend Homo Loki will discuss this topic as well as others of import such as the Republican decision to sue the President.

    BENJA RUTABANA : NYUMA Y'IGIHE KIREKIRE ASOHOYE ALBUM YITWA AMNESIA

    in Politics Progressive

    HOST: Serge Ndayizeye


    GUEST: Benja Rutabana


    Cet album est particulier dans la production de No Direction Home, non par le style de musique : du reggae africain, mais par la trajectoire homérique de l’auteur-compositeur interprète : Benja Rutabana.


    Benjamin « Benja » Rutabana est le neuvième enfant d’un pasteur adventiste du Rwanda. Né en 1970, il a été témoin de la montée de l’idéologie raciste promue par les dirigeants hutus du pays. En août 1973, sa famille échappe aux massacres précédant le coup d’État qui porte Juvenal Habyarimana au pouvoir. Plusieurs de ses frères et sœurs doivent alors s’exiler. Il assistera à l’empoisonnement progressif du pays par l’idéologie raciste du Hutu Power.
    Le 1er octobre 1990, alors que le FPR – les Tutsis exilés en Ouganda depuis 1959 –, lance une offensive à la frontière nord du pays, le régime rwandais procède à des arrestations massives parmi les Tutsis de l’intérieur. Benjamin est arrêté, comme presque toute sa famille. Les conditions de sa détention sont un véritable enfer et nombre de ses codétenus n’y survivront pas. Il ne sera libéré que six mois plus tard, à l’occasion d’un accord international contraignant le régime Habyarimana à relâcher tous les prisonniers tutsis.

    Four Genocide Survivors discuss their Experiences and Never Again

    in Politics

    Today's show is an hour long special on Genocide.


    Guests will be survivors and decendants of survivors from the Armenian, Cambodian, Rwandan Genocides as well as the Holocaust. They are:


    Armenian Genocide: Karine Shnorhokian, who is the grandchild of survivors


    The Holocaust: Sol Rosenkranz, a survivor of the holocaust


    The Killing Fields of the Cambodian Genocide: Bun Yom, survivor.


    The Rwandan Genocide: Nibagwire Dida, survivor, will participate from Kigali, Rwanda


    The show will begin with me introducing each of the guests and asking each to give an 8-10 minute description of their experiences with genocide. Then I plan to have a question and answer and crosstalk where we discuss similar experiences, ways in which earlier genocides may have in fact served as a blueprint for later genocides or emboldened the perpetrators of future genocides and also problems with getting the perpetrators identified and prosecuted. 


    Finally, we will discuss strategies for improving the odds that will make "Never Again" a reality.

    Host: Jennifer Fierberg 
    Guest: Dr Theogene Rudasingwa
    Waging And Winning A Peaceful Revolution To Unite And Heal A Broken Rwanda Authored by Dr Theogene Rudasingwa
    This is my testimony. It is the story of a Rwandan family caught up in the larger, tumultuous, and often tragic story of Rwanda. Though the history of Rwanda as a nation spans centuries, this testimony casts a glance at the two violent revolutions (1959, 1990) and their catastrophic consequences that have affected every Rwandan and Rwanda's neighbors in the Great Lakes region of central Africa. Each revolution began with a promise, only to betray it. We repeatedly have become a nation of "losers and winners", of "perpetrators and victims", with individuals, families, communities and ethnic groups (Hutu and Tutsi) changing positions in a race beset with death and destruction
