To cover up all his wrongdoings and suppress the truth about what happened in Rwanda since October 1990, Kagame targeted independent reporters and investigative journalists. Score of journalists have since been killed while the luckier ones escaped and sought asylum abroad.

Many journalists were assassinated in retaliation to their work. Freethinking journalism has become a non starter under Kagame's regime.

In August 1995, Mr. Manasse Mugabo, director of the United Nations radio stations disappeared and his body was never recovered.

In April 1997, Mr. Apollo Hakizimana, editor of Umuravumba, was assassinated a week after authorities seized his journal for reporting RPF massacres of Hutu civilians in Northern and Western Rwanda.

On March 7, 1998, Father Andre Sibomana, reporter for the Catholic Church journal, Kinyamateka, was killed by starvation in Gitarama.
