RWANDA: THE LEADERS OF THE ISHEMA PARTY BARRED FROM RETURN TO THEIR HOME COUNTRY

The political party FDU-Inkingi denounces the manoeuvers of the Rwandan dictatorial regime aimed at preventing its citizens from returning to their home country freely.

According to reliable sources, including Reuters, RFI and the leadership of the Ishema Party, Rwandan immigration officials allegedly put pressure on Kenya Airways to prevent Rev. Father Thomas Nahimana and his delegation from boarding on its flight to Kigali, on Wednesday, November 23, 2016.

According to the press release issued by the Ishema party, the delegation led by its Secretary General Father Thomas Nahimana was on its way to Rwanda to set up its political party headquarters and carry out its political activities in Rwanda.

We take this opportunity to condemn the determination of the RPF dictatorship to monopolize the political space in Rwanda. At the same time, we denounce the hypocrisy of the Kigali regime which, while demanding the application of the cessation clause of the UN Convention on Refugees, and the forced return of refugees, it has blocked from accessing the Rwandan territory, Rwandan citizens that are eager to return peacefully and spontaneously to their home country.

Done in London, UK, on November 25, 2016.
