Re: Letter of congratulations from the coordinating committee of FDU-Inkingi (Rwanda) to His Excellency Mr. Barack Obama, on his reelection as President of the United States of America.

Your Excellency,

The American people have just chosen you again to preside over their destiny for the next four years.

It gives us immense pleasure to extend, on behalf of the coordinating committee of the Rwandan opposition FDU-INKINGI, our warmest congratulations and sincere greetings to Your Excellency. We are confident that your re-election will allow you to move forward with new and ambitious goals for the United States, as well as internationally. Your stunning victory rewards a tireless commitment to serving the American people and the world.

Your successful dedication to democracy, your extraordinary leadership in different capacities and your commitment to justice and human rights give more expectations to most oppressed people and especially in Africa where warlords continue to stage savage attacks against civilians.

A fresh proxy war in the North Kivu (DRC) waged by the so called M23 rebellion has been documented by the report by the United Nations (UN) Group of Experts on the DRC.   Evidence on the implication of Rwanda in arming, training, financing and recruiting is overwhelming.

On 01 October 2010, the UN report “DRC: Mapping human rights violations 1993-2003″ has documented at length that terrible humanitarian crimes in the DRC were partly committed by the current Rwandan leadership and its army. The plundering of minerals in the DRC continues. There has been no justice.

In Rwanda, we humbly need your attention for the release of opposition leaders and critic journalists serving hefty sentences in prisons on politically motivated charges. Our leader, Madame Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza was handed 8 years on 30 October 2012; Mr. Deogratias Mushayidi, leader of PDP Imanzi was given a life term in 2010 while Mr. Bernard Ntaganda, leader of PS Imberakuri, 4 years in 2011.

Your re-election comes the right time and we are sure you are the right person for the changes needed in the world today.

Accept, Your Excellency Mr. President, the renewed assurances of my very high consideration.

FDU-Inkingi

Coordinating Committee

Dr. Nkiko Nsengimana

Coordinator
