TOPIC: ESE PRESIDENT PAUL KAGAME YAHARITSE GENOCIDE CYANGWA YARAYITANGIJE?
The BBC TWO revealed to the world what many of us knew about the Rwandan President. This is a man who is praised and supported by some personalities in the West, although they cannot tolerate a person of this kind in their own respective countries for a single day. Why then do they think his good for Rwandans?
This is the question the former Rwandan Army Chief Gen. Kayumba Nyamwasa asked reporter Jane Corbin in a lengthy program that exposed the most horrifying incidents of massacres of innocent Rwandans both in Rwanda and Congo by Kagame.
In this documentary there are many distortions of facts on what might have happened in the hundred days during genocide. While Kagame and his Western backers put the blame entirely on the Hutus, the two American researchers have questioned the statistics of the population of Tutsis before and after genocide. They argue that before genocide Rwanda had an estimated 500,000 Tutsis and after genocide it is estimated that 300,000 survived. If the number of people died in the genocide is around One Million (1,000,000) it follows that 200,000 Tutsis and possibly some Hutus who were sympathetic to the RPF cause or wanted to protect the Tutsi where killed by interahamwe.
