RWANDA : ALL RWANDANS WILL BEAR THE BURDEN OF THIS NEW PROXY WAR.

Kigali , 27 July 2012

It’s only the current Rwandan leadership that is denying the overwhelming evidence of its new military involvement in the DRC atrocities while the international community including United Nations, USA, EU, UK, South Africa, African Union, etc … is calling for an immediate end to this humanitarian disaster. The growing pressure from international and bilateral donors will bear fruits if it is reinforced through a more candid and demanding stand on key issues of justice, accountability, human rights, regional stability, opening of political space and freedom of expression. It’s not the first time the same leadership has been warmongering in the DRC.  The longer and wider those atrocities continue, the higher will be the cost for Rwandan citizens in short and long terms. Cutting the budget support is not enough, a domestic political space is urgent.
