A CONCERTED CAMPAIGN TO BRING RWANDA GOVERNMENT TO ITS KNEES?

By Dr. Richard R. Mugahe Rwanda is believed to be the most highly scrutinised country in the world. A brief search every morning on websites of various media outlets, blogs, and social media, you are shocked by the level at which the country is being written on or being discussed. The question is why is Rwanda which is always described ...

A mes frères et sœurs Congolais

Je vous écrit cette lettre car je sent le besoin de m’expliquer. Pas au nom de mon peuple, dont je ne suis pas le porte parole, mais au nom de mes idéaux, les quelles je partage régulièrement sur ce blog. Aujourd’hui je me suis posée la question: Comment se sentent les congolais? C’est vrais qu’il n’est pas possible de se ...

‘After 19 years of peace and reconciliation; APOLOGY! how Hutus are to apologise to Tutsis and why. Posted 22nd August 2013

Part I. Identity crisis. Classes have been over for the past two hours at Universidade Edourdo Mondlane. But for the four Burundian law students who stayed behind, these two hours count for something much bigger than the class of today. After failing to obtain Mozambican citizenship for Burundians living here for more than a decade, this is their last chance ...

Kikwete and his friends the FDLR Posted 20th August 2013

Recent remarks by Tanzanian president, advising Rwandan authorities to negotiate with the FDLR, show that he does not grasp regional dynamics; that he has a different theory of the genocide and that he  has a problem with Rwanda’s foreign and national security policies. Tanzanian citizens claim that Kikwete’s advice was merely bonafide and peace-inspired; them I can undersatand. As for ...

Tanzania, the gift that keeps ungiving…

Fun fact: the map of the East African Community looks exactly like that of former united Sudan. That is bound to change soon, for better or worse.. I look at escalating hostile rhetoric between Rwandan and Tanzanian leaders; the expulsion of Rwandans from Tanzania and I see the dream of Museveni to become the first president of the federal republic ...

Opposition for dummies 10th July 2013

Opposition parties should not be used as spaces for scores settling between former allies who fall out. citizens are interested in ideas of politicians, not their bitterness: We, the people want to know which new policies they have to offer, that are better than what we have had until now. We do not need them to tell us what is ...

For the love of the game 1st July 2013

I never thought I would write about football anymore, but between two exams, there is nothing more relaxing; that and a cold Windhoek… Anyway, I never told anyone about this, but I never really liked the style of the Spanish team and Barca and Messi. I find the game of small passes boring. I didn’t like it because I thought ...

Sublimation Part I: Blaming the Hague is just being vague. 23rd June 2013

To put this article in perspective I will quote a Rwandan saying that goes: ‘Uwavuze ko nyirinzu yapfuye, ntabwo aba ariwe uba yamwishe’ which translates in English as: ‘don’t shoot the messenger’ Sublimation is a human vice to substitute a true value with an artificial one. In this article, I painted sublimation in another optic: When faced with a deep-rooted problem, ...

Rwandans are mature enough 15th March 2013

To put this article in perspective, I would like to quote Voltaire the French writer who said:  I do not agree with what you say, but I will defend […] your right to say it. In the same vein, this was written in reaction to a set of articles titled: change in continuity (Parts I, II, III, IV, etc.) with ...
