President Kagame holds hostage the families of his criticsBy Gasasira , Sweden
President Kagame continues to persecute and hold hostages relatives of his critics just like he recently told the RPF general assembly. During the meeting, the president who is also the chairman warned participants that he would continue to persecute and hold hostage relatives of those who dare criticise him and flee the country.
Full of himself, Kagame said that though his critics were hiding in several countries, they should not forget that they left their relatives in Rwanda.
Those who know President Kagame told Umuvugizi.com that it was not strange that Kagame said that in public because he meant it and would continue to persecute those whose relatives fled the country.
Indeed, this is known of Kagame since he has ever said the same and went ahead and did it when he turned guns onto the genocide survivors when he was fighting Joseph Sebarenzi then speaker of parliament and Assiel Kabera. At that time he told genocide survivors to put their forgiveness at rest.
One political analyst told Umuvugizi news that Kagame’s end may be like that Gaddafi and the regime that took over power in Rwanda after President Habyarimana’s death. The same regime is responsible for the genocide and atrocities that befell the country in 1994.
Before Assiel Kabera’s murder and other politicians from Kibuye prefecture now in western province, Kagame warned that if they are not careful, he would leave Kigali with the garbage “decomposing bodies” as the way he found it.
Among those in the RPF political forum that Kagame is determined to keep hostage include Gen. Kayumba Nyamwasa’s brother, Col. Rugigana Ngabo whom has been persecuted and presented to the court martial without any known case.
Rwandans have not forgotten the cruelty with which Kagame killed Col.Patrick Karegeya’s cousin, Rutayisire John Bosco who murdered for having a relationship with his critic Karegeya.
Among those who tasted Kagame’s persecution are the parents of Gen. Kayumba, Dr. Theogene Rudasingwa and Dr.Gerald Gahima who tried to endure until they were forced to again flee the country they had returned to after decades in exile. Therefore Kagame’s persecution is not new and not can doubt that he will continue to persecute relatives of his critics as long as he reigns just like all dictators do.
