Understanding Rwanda’s foreign policy – Andrew M Mwenda

Reading Time: 8 minutes

This is a second instalment of my three-part review of Michela Wrong’s book, Do Not Disturb, about the murder of Patrick Karegyeya. Many readers of part one missed the core of my argument. I did not seek to argue that the government of Rwanda under the leadership of President Paul Kagame does not hunt to kill its enemies abroad. I only meant to illustrate that Wrong did not do basic journalistic work of trying to look at different hypotheses and then showing why she believed the one she went with. The core of my argument was that if Kigali has assassinated anyone abroad, that is because of a rational foreign policy, not because of some violent psychopathy of Kagame as a person the way Wrong presented it.

Rwandans react to report on France’s 1994 genocide role

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Rwandans visiting the Kigali Genocide Memorial react to the publication of a report Friday on France’s role in their nation’s 1994 genocidal atrocity against the Tutsi ethnic group.

The report — based on research led by historian Vincent Duclert, concludes there had been a “failure” on the part of France under former leader Francois Mitterrand.

Jean Dushimimana, a visitor at the museum, appears to have mixed feelings.

“There is nothing that the French can do to pay back for what they did (in the genocide) but what I would say is that maybe they could do something for the victims and the survivors who are still suffering from the effects of the genocide to help them improve their lives.”
