To those wishing to lessen genocide:

It would be a colossal error to invite Pres. Paul Kagame of Rwanda, who is himself one of the foremost genocidists in the world, as a panelist to discuss this topic on Sept. 29. Why do I say this? Because from June, 1994-August, 1996, I served as U.S. Ambassador to Burundi, neighbor to Rwanda, as 1,000 refugees per day were fleeing from Rwanda to Burundi.

Rwanda: The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) is opposed to the weekly visits of Ms. Victoire Ingabire

Kigali, September 13, 2013.

On Friday, September 13, 2013, the members of FDU-Inkingi political party went as usual to the Kigali maximum security prison, commonly known as 1930, to visit their party Chairperson who is detained there by the RPF regime for political reasons. Upon their arrival, an officer of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) blocked their access to Ms. Victoire Ingabire without giving any reason. Surprisingly, according to the prison instructions, the visitors were all carrying their identity cards and were not exceeding the maximum number set forth by the prison authorities. When the visitors attempted to plead their case, an officer of the CID branch of the prison, by the name of James Baguma, ordered them to return home immediately without any further ado.
