On May 18, 1993, Kagame's death squads killed Mr. Emmanuel Gapyisi, a prominent political leader and Vice-President of the Republican Party. Mr. Gapyisi was a critical voice of the atrocious killing methods used by the RPF rebels led by Kagame.

In June 1993, Kagame's death squads killed Mr. Fidele Rwambuka, Mayor of Kanzenze Commune. Mr. Rwambuka's death prompted much tension between Tutsi and Hutu in the South-Eastern part of the country.

On February 21, 1994, Kagame's death squads struck again in KigaliCity, killing Mr. Felicien Gatabazi, the Chairman of the Social Democratic party (PSD).
