Even though Kagame did not finish the high school and has no school diploma, he has mastered the techniques of killing, especially with regard to assassinations of his political opponents. The failed assassination attempt of General Faustin Kayumba Nyamwasa in South Africa on June 19, 2010, is obviously the last attempt by Kagame's death squads to silence a high profile political opponent. Even if this assassination attempt has attracted much public attention it only is a drop in ocean.
Besides numerous targeted political assassinations, Kagame has ordered mass killings of Hutu and Tutsi civilians in Rwanda since October 1, 1990. People have been rounded up away from public view (mostly during the nights), executed and dumped in mass graves. Kagame also sent bulldozers to destroy camps for internally displaced people in Kibeho, Rwanda (1995) and refugee camps in Goma, DR Congo (1996-1997), killing hundreds thousands of people. The unpublished Gersony report about mass killing inside Rwanda in 1994 as well as the recently leaked UN report about Hutu genocide in RDC from 1993 to 2003 are clear proofs of Kagame's crimes against humanity if not genocide.
The list below is not exhaustive, it however shows clearly how Kagame and his death squads have killed so many people both inside Rwanda and abroad since the launch of the Rwandan war by the RPF on October 1, 1990 from Uganda.
1. Political Assassinations Inside Rwanda
Between 1991 and 1993, Kagame's death-squads infiltrated Rwanda from Uganda to conduct targeted assassinations of prominent politicians and local administrative leaders who had actively denounced the RPF invasion of Rwanda and the killings of civilians by RPF soldiers in northern regions of Ruhengeri and Byumba. He also launched several raids on border towns targeting politicians and civil leaders.
On January 23, 1991, the RPF launched a raid on the city of Ruhengeri, killing score of Hutu civilians selectively and rooting administrative offices and shops. The same day RPF killed Congressman Telesphore Munyaruyenzi, an outspoken opponent of the RPF and its war.
