During this meeting which, was also attended by US secretary of state Hilary Clinton, Kagame seized change to organise fellow dictators from other developing countries to help him silence the donors who demand them democracy and good governance.
Speaking at the meeting , Kagame did not spare the donors who insist that his government doesn’t respects human rights and democracy in the country. Instead of listening to the advice the donors provide on top of their countries’ tax payer money as their only way to speak for the people of Rwanda whose freedom of expression along with other freedoms have been suffocated, he has decided to take the bull by the horns and speak in a more stronger voice of all developing countries.
Since 2008, Kagame has been fighting donors who give him aid with ‘strings’ and has been devising means of organising fellow African dictators who saw the demands that come with aid as a burden and who wish to avoid providing accountability for millions of dollars that come in form of development aid to fight back but still be able to receive the money and use it to suffocate democratic rights and other rights of their people.
Another reason why Kagame has to fight the conditional aid is because most of the donors have repeatedly demanded him to remove his forces from the Democratic Republic of Congo in the interest of regional peace and security. Kagame’s forces have continued to kill Congolese civilians just to cause a state of insecurity that facilitates him to plunder the country’s mineral wealth. Therefore Kagame would use any available chance to silence the donors whose demands he is not ready to adhere to.
Also President Kagame has since 2008 realised that donor countries particularly European Union member states and the United States of America had started knowing his true personality of ruling Rwanda with dictatorship characterized of suffocating press freedoms, failing the operation of opposition political parties, suffocated the freedoms of assembly and association to the extent of killing citizens who try to express their opinions.
For the years that followed Kagame has realised that all the donors repeat the same demands and he is not ready to change yet he needs the aid money that is why he has decided to fight back and create fear by attacking them at different forums, and the Busan meeting provides an ideal forum for Kagame to organise other dictators from other developing countries to demand for unconditional aid and have donors silent about the use of their tax payer’s money.
Just like any other dictator, Kagame’s strongest weapon is using threats. Like he does not fear shedding innocent blood of civilians he is supposed to protect ,so he does not fear attacking the donors who feed him. He is not about to adhere to the demands of the donor community since his stay in power is by use of force not will of the people.
