RWANDA: RELATIVES OF CRITICS LIVING ABROAD TAKEN HOSTAGE.

The witch hunt for relatives of critics living abroad have started in earnest on the 13th December 2020, with visit by covert operatives, masquerading as reporters of Urugano TV, to relatives of one government critic PC Rwalinda, to intimidate them and to force him to stop his legitimate campaign against the reign of totalitarianism in Rwanda. It worth noting that during the last one month this channel has carried a smear campaign against other critics of government policies including Justin Bahunga, Marcel Sebatware, Mrs Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza and Faustin Twagiramungu. Other pro-government social media attacked Iddi Nshimiyimana, another critic based in Belgium, saying that he should not criticize since his family still lives in Rwanda. One Kayitare Jean stated in a tweet that Urugano TV, one of TV channels sponsored by the Rwandan Directorate of Military Intelligence (DMI) “visited the family and relatives of Rwalinda Pierre Claver, whom he described as “a person who spends all his time criticising the Rwandan leadership”. He quotes the sister of Rwalinda as having “called on his brother to come back home and serve his country”. We would like to recall that the command post of RPF armed group and its propaganda radio Muhabura were based in “Urugano” (Echuya Forest in Uganda) adjacent to the Rwandan border.
