On February 7, 2010, I spoke to the Rwandan FDU-Inkingi Party's presidential candidate Victoire IngabirÃ© Umuhoza, on the phone from San Francisco, California, U.S.A., to Kigali, Rwanda, for KPFA Radio News. (See Youtube post below.)
On February 10th, 2010, Human Rights Watch issued a report, Rwanda: End attacks on opposition parties, which the BBC, Reuters, and AFP all covered on the same day.
On the same day, hundreds of people protested in front of the Rwanda Embassy in Brussels, Belgium, against repression and dictatorship, and the Rwanda Police Criminal Investigation Division interrogated Victoire Victoire Ingabire, presidential candidate of the FDU-Inkingi, for four hours, on "genocide ideology," "divisionism," and links to the FDLR militia in Eastern Congo.
Whether because of the Human Rights Watch report or not, they did not arrest IngabirÃ©, as they had arrested her aide Joseph Ntawangundi the week before, and as many had expected.
