Rwanda: Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza: 3 years after January 16th, 2010

At the occasion of the third anniversary of Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza returning back home to Rwanda, it is important to look briefly at the journey that democracy has followed as a critical path for a true development of the country.

It was on January 16th, 2010 that the leader of FDU-Inkingi landed in Kigali after an exile of sixteen years in The Netherlands.

One of her political acts on the first day in Rwanda was to visit the Genocide Memorial at Gisozi. The short announcement she made at the intention of the press would constitute her initial sin in the face of the RPF regime. Maybe to measure and understand how Paul Kagame is opposed to differing ideas from his own, a reading of Ingabire’s statement to journalists at the time is necessary.
