In 1998, Father Duchamp from Canada and Father Curick Vjechoslav from Croatia were killed by Kagame's death squads in Kigali.
All of these expatriates were killed because they had witnessed atrocities committed by RPF soldiers and could provide damning testimonies against Kagame and his RPF party at any time.
The above list is not exhaustive. It does not mention large scale massacres of the population such as those that took place in Kibeho camp for internally displaced people from April 18-22, 1995 where more than 10,000 people were killed; Byumba cathedral and Musanze massacres in 1996; Gatonde, Cyabingo, and Nyakinama massacres in 1997; etc. It is during these mass killings of Hutu civilians by the Tutsi dominated army that my own family has been wiped out in February 1997. The above list shows a killing pattern that was politically motivated with the sole aim of silencing political opponents and/or covering up multiple crimes against humanity ordered by Kagame and executed by his death squads.
The recently leaked UN report of Hutu genocide in Eastern Congo from 1993 to 2003 and the recently unearthed Gersony report about Hutu Genocide in Rwanda in aftermath of the civil war in 1994 have revealed even more atrocities than reported before. This a clear proof that Kagame is the major genocidaire of our era.
With lingering legitimacy at the beginning of his next seven-year term in power due to a strong opposition inside and outside Rwanda, divisions within the army and growing doubts among his western supporters, Kagame is likely to accelerate his killing machine, increase his crackdown on opposition and restrict the freedom of speech more than ever before. Meanwhile, I will continue to denounce all genocide crimes and crimes against humanity committed by President Kagame and his death squads until justice is done and the Rwandan people as a whole are set free.
