RWANDA: SOS: Mrs. ILLUMINEE IRAGENA REPORTED TO BE IN CRITICAL CONDITION FOLLOWING TORTURE IN KAMI MILITARY CAMP

According to informed sources Mrs. Illuminee Iragena, reported missing since March 26, 2016, could be held in the notorious Kami military barracks, on the outskirts of Kigali City, Rwanda. The Kami military camp is notoriously known for its cruel interrogation methods used to extract false testimonies. Some reliable sources report that Mrs. Iragena has been tortured.

It should be recalled that in 2012 Amnesty International published a detailed report condemning the systematic use of torture in Rwanda by military intelligence services. According to former inmates, some methods include the use of electric shocks, beating detainees or sensory deprivation to force them to speak, and by suffocation with a plastic bag over the head.

RWANDA: APRL 2006 – APRIL 2016: TENTH ANNIVERSARY OF FDU-INKINGI

Ten years ago, the Rwandan Democratic Forces decided to pool together their efforts to force the Rwandan dictatorship to open the political space and to allow the Rwandan people enjoy their inalienable rights. Their determination and tenacity not to give in to blackmail and fear of paying the ultimate sacrifice are embodied by their leader Madame Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza, who is incarcerated in the despicable Kigali maximum security prison. As a true disciple of Sun Tzu and Gandhi, Mrs. Ingabire and her followers in the FDU-Inkingi party, have always privileged non-violence in their struggle against dictatorship and have worked hard to build a platform of the Rwandan Democratic opposition and to make it an effective tool to fight against the dictatorship that oppresses the Rwandan people. The United Democratic Forces (FDU-Inkingi) were officially born on April 26, 2006. On this day we pay tribute to all Rwandans who are fighting for their fundamental and inalienable rights.

RWANDA: MEMBERS OF THE PLATFORM WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE ZAMBIA GOVERNMENT FOR TAKING ACTION TO STOP XENOPHOBIA AGAINST RWANDANS

During the violence that took place in Lusaka – Zambia starting on Monday April 18, 2016, hundreds of people attacked and looted the houses and shops owned by foreign nationals. Foreigners, mainly Rwandans, are accused of “ritual murders”. Rwandan nationals in particular in the districts of Misisi, Makeni South,  Kanyama, and Lusaka townships were particularly targeted. They are victims of rumours that accused them of murder in the recent death “of seven people whose bodies were found amputated of their ears, hearts and genitals.”
