2. Political assassinations committed by Kagame's death squads outside Rwanda.

After taking power by force in Rwanda on July 4, 1994, Kagame dispatched his death squads outside the country to hunt down and kill political opponents. Later on, the same death squads started hunting down dissidents from the ruling party, RPF.

On October 6, 1996 Kagame's death squads killed Colonel Theoneste Lizinde in Nairobi, Kenya. Former member of the RPF and Governor of Byumba, Col. Lizinde defected and sought asylum in Kenya after falling out with Kagame following his complaints about the RPF killing of Hutu civilians in Byumba in 1994 and 1995.

On May 28, 1998, Kagame's death squads killed Mr. Seth Sendashonga in Nairobi, Kenya. Former interior minister under Kagame's regime, Mr. Sendashonga defected and fled to Kenya after falling out with Kagame on continued massacres of Hutu civilians in different parts of Rwanda by the Kagame's army and secret services.

On February 15, 1999, Kagame's death squads struck in Yaounde, Cameroun, killing Mr. Pasteur Musabe, former CEO of African Continental Bank and brother of Colonel Theoneste Bagosora.
