Miriki: Forging Evidence to Kill Hutus in DRC

February 11, 2016

I received a link to this Congolese website benilubero.com, which features news items about atrocities committed against the local population in Beni Lubero, DRC. The pictures are beyond horrifying. People chopped into pieces, some disemboweled, men, women, children. Imagine for one minute what you would be ready to do if one of those victims happened to be a member of your family. Imagine what you’d be ready to do to the criminal if they suddenly found themselves in your custody. Suppose you stumbled on a phone conversation where the murderers talk about their crimes, totally incriminating themselves.

I clicked on the audio links in the article. The two conversations are in Kinyarwanda, my mother tongue. I was stunned. Not once does any of the persons in that conversation say what the article accuse them of saying.

The author pointed out 25 points which are supposed to incriminate Hutus. Not a single one of those points even remotely appears in the recorded conversations. The article is written in French, the audio is in Kinyarwanda and the target audience probably speaks French, Nande and maybe Swahili and Lingala.

The author is telling a bereaved Nande population whose members have been recently victim of massacres that Hutu immigrants are to blame for the horrendous crimes. He is basing his accusations on a conversation in a language that neither he nor his translator, does understand.

Any Kinyarwanda-speaking, ten year-old listener can tell the whole article is a blatant fabrication, not even a smart one. In the meantime, chances are Hutus in Nande neighborhoods are being hunted down as we speak. Based on a misleading translation.

Here is a scrupulous transcription of the audio conversations in Kinyarwanda along with the translation into French.

I’m sure benilubero.com serves some helpful purpose to the local population, but they really should stop fabricating evidence to incite gullible peasants into killing their neighbor who happen to be of a different tribe.

Former RPF soldiers testify on mass murdering Hutus and Tustis.

December 7, 2015

This video is a testimony by former members of the RPF military on how they committed genocide against Hutus, killing Tutsi witnesses in the process. In the video they mention how the RPF massacred the Gogwe Tutsis in 1993 to discredit Habyarimana’s government and how the RPF used that as an excuse to break the ceasefire.  They talk about one instance in 1994 when they rounded up around 100 young Tutsi men who were suffering from PTSD and bashed in their skulls one by one, using agafuni, a used, worn hoe, a tool RPF men have been known to use whenever they need to kill people without using guns.  They talk about how they eviscerated a 17-year old Hutu girl near Base in the northern part of Rwanda and how they shot a woman in the vagina after killing both her sons and how they proceeded to kill the entire village of around 50 households which they suspected of supporting Hutu rebels. I remember that such horrible acts were reported in the media as “counterinsurgency operations”.

Miss Tutsi a.k.a. Miss Rwanda Beauty Pageant

February 16, 2015
Miss Rwanda contest 2015

Miss Rwanda 2015: a Tutsi-only pageant?

Height is part of the admission criteria in Miss Rwanda beauty pageant. Contestants under 170 cm need not apply, plain and simple. Such a criteria would be OK if this was say, the Netherlands or South Sudan. But this is Rwanda, where the Twa community lives and has been living before the Hutu and Tutsi came in. Twa are descendants of pygmies, which means most members of that community are short people, rarely taller than 160 cm. The Hutu tend to be taller, and the Tutsi are known to be among the tallest people on the planet. Dinka from South Sudan are the only people I can think of who are generally taller than the Rwandan Tutsi.

Anywhere else in the world, such a blatant racist criteria would spark outrage, but this is Rwanda. Hutu and Twa living under the current regime in Rwanda have gotten used to so much abuse and discrimination of all kinds that nobody dares to protest this. And by the way, all members of the Miss Rwanda jury-except maybe one- just happen to look Tutsi.

Paul Kagame’s RPF has installed such an apartheid-like regime that Rwandans who were born under the tall man’s rule seem to have no issues with such an obvious display of racism. At least they aren’t expressing any. They have gotten used to the idea that every high-ranking position in government is meant for the tall folks. Today in Rwanda, any prosperous businessman has to be either Tutsi or have a lot of important Tutsi friends. Any movie star, rock (more probably rap) star, church leader or whatever successful business owner has to be either a Tutsi or a self-loathing Hutu or Twa who has sworn loyalty to the Tutsi supremacist criminal organization-turned political party RPF.

The repression against anyone who doesn’t actively work to further the nazi-like RPF agenda is such that people proactively discriminate against the Hutu and the Twa to stay in king Kagame’s good graces. I’m sure nobody specifically instructed the organizers of Miss Rwanda to keep Hutus and Twas out. They proactively did so to escape the wrath of the tall man. Keep feeding the beast lest it gets hungry and considers chewing you up, that seems to be everybody’s motto in Rwanda these days.

UNHCR Gabon’s Role in Hutu Genocide

August 18, 2014

Amiel Ntamuhanga’s article should be read, shared, copied and pasted a million times. He’s giving the names of the victims, the time and place of the crime(s).

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE RWANDAN HUTU REFUGEES WHO FLED FROM GOMA IN 1997 TO FRANCEVILLE IN THE REPUBLIC OF GABON?

I am a cousin to one of those Hutu refugees who were forcibly returned to Rwanda by UNHCR Gabon, which was represented by Ms. Louise in concordance with the RPF government, which was represented by Gen. Charles Kayonga.  Once they were returned to Rwanda, most of the refugees were brutally executed, others were put under house arrest where they were subjected to daily physical and emotional torture. Before I start widely exploring to what befell these innocent Hutu refugees in Gabon, I want to add that this people had fled on foot from various refugees camps which had formerly been established in Eastern DRC such as Kibumba, Kahindo, Gatare, Mugunga, Kiwanja, Panzi, ENRA, Nyangezi I, II, III, and IV, Kavumu, Gako, and other refugee camps that were found in Eastern DR Congo, the former Zaire. I want to give you a brief chronology of what happened to the day that innocent Rwandan refugees were forcibly deported from Franceville in Gabon to Kigali Rwanda. How did really UNHCR and the world’s powerful countries decide to leave the Rwandan Hutu refugees for the RPF and its allies’ onslaught?

Rwandan Hutu Refugees in Goma, October 1996

The RPF, Uganda, and Burundi together with Kabila’s rebels’ invaded Hutu refugee camps in Eastern DRC killing any living creature. The rest were forced to go back to Rwanda. In the process young Hutu refugees were singled out and were either butchered or sent back to DRC to fight their relatives who were fleeing into interior DRC. In Sake the RPF, Burundian, and

RPF SOLDIERS HUNTING HUTU REFUGEES IN DRC

Ugandan soldiers supported by American helicopters and armored vehicles came and attacked millions of Hutu refugees who had gathered in the Sake shopping center. They started shooting and shelling at refugees from the ridges of Sake hills. Thousands of refugees lost their lives and others sustained life-threatening injuries. This indiscriminate bombing of refugees continued for three good days until one early morning young people had to come together to save our lives. The EX-FARS, Contingents, and Congolese Hutu combatants pushed through the hills of Sake and created a humanitarian corridor that saved millions of Hutu Rwandan, Burundian, and Congolese refugees. Many refugees swam over the hills of Masisi. Of course RPF soldiers were at our heels slaughtering the weak ones that lagged behind either because they were sick, tired, children, mothers with babies on their back, elderly people, or pregnant women were the first to fall on Kagame’s brutal sword. Despite all this mass onslaught the American government made sure its media does not broadcast the mass murder that was taking place against Rwandan refugees. In addition, the UNHCR which claimed to protect refugees was the first to brand innocent Hutu refugees as genocidaires who are fleeing justice. That is how we all were left helplessly to be butchered as chicken under the butchers’ knife.

Rwandan Hutu Refugees in Walikale, November, 1996 

After two months of running under RPF’s, Kabila’s, Ugandan, and Burundian bombs, we arrived in Walikale. This was like a meeting place because this is the place where Hutu refugees from North Kivu and those from Hutu refugee camps of Bukavu converged. Out of 4 million

HUTU REFUGEES MASSACRE IN WALIKALE

refugees who were found in both Bukavu and Goma, more than 1.5 million Hutu refugees had managed to soldier on toward the unknown destination. This time around there were also around 300,000 of Congolese refugees from South and North Kivu. The majority of them were Congolese Hutu communities from Rutchuru, Masisi and other Congolese regions who were also being targeted by Tutsi-led RPF soldiers. Here we have to remember that all these attacks were led by General Kayumba Nyamwasa and General Kabarebe. The RPF were catching up with Hutu refugees who were tired and extremely exhausted because of long distance on foot and hunger. The Hutu refugees continued their exodus toward Kisangani and now they were on the road. They continued from Walikale to Amisi where they established the first camp of people who were extremely tired, sick, and pregnant women. There were around 150,000 refugees from all courses of life. Other refugees who were still strong mainly comprising young people went and established another refugee camp at an aerodrome of Tingitingi in Maniema region. This was near the Christmas of 1996. It was after three months of fleeing without stopping at all. Refugees had witnessed RPF slaughtering their relatives and others die of sickness or exhaustion.

Rwandan Hutu Refugees in Tingitingi, Christmas of 1996

More than 300,000 Rwandan Hutu refugees and more than 50000 Congolese refugees and more than 30000 Hutu refugees from Burundi. All of them gathered in Tingitingi hoping that UNHCR and other humanitarian organizations will come to their help but they did not. Instead the then President of UNHCR Sadako Ogata and European Commissioner Louise Arbor visited Tingitingi and looked at the emaciated children and told them, “you must go back to Rwanda or you die in this jungle.” Two months after the sad news from Sadako the RPF attacked the Tingitingi refugee camp. Around half a million refugees were forced to cross over River Lubutu. In the process the bridge was overburdened and collapsed into River Lubutu. Thousands of refugees, children, mothers, pregnant women, and elderly people sunk into the river until they made a new bridge. The refugees who crossed the river at around 5am managed to cross over bodies that were accumulated in that river. Families were lost forever in Lubutu river. In Kisangani when the refugees were taken to Ubundu, RPF soldiers disguised as Red Cross volunteers and lured all refugees from Eastern Zaire to Ubundu refugee camp and were killed at night when the so called Red Cross volunteers put on RPF uniforms and started shooting randomly, killing more than 10000 refugees overnight. Those who survived continued all the way to Kisangani, Ubundu, Ikela, all the way to Mbandaka.

Rwandan Hutu Refugees in Mbandaka, March 1997

This time, majority of refugees had given up and decided to remain in the Ituli forest of Equator. Others had continued to run from the enemy who had now gained ground because he had accessed the routes leading to Kisangani and the River Congo and the Kisangani Airport.

HUTU REFUGEES IN KISANGANI

RPF was determined to kill Hutu refugees at any cost and the international community had given them right to kill anything that looked like Hutu. They continued their killing spree from Ubundu all the way to Mbandaka. At Mbandaka, RPF soldiers disguised as Congolese soldiers brought a ship which was supposed to assist refugees to cross over to Lukolela in Eastern Republic of Congo. However, after more than 5000 refugees, mostly Hutus and those Congolese refugees from Eastern DRC had boarded the ship which had been mined with explosives, it was ferried into the middle of River Congo and abandoned there full of refugees, children, elderly people and women. Then the explosives were detonated. Thousands of refugees died in that river. Those who survived crossed over the border to the Republic of Congo in Lukolela refugee camps others went all the way down to Brazzaville, the capital of the Republic of Congo. These refugees in Brazzaville were moved to Bilolo refugee camp.

Rwandan Hutu Refugees in Brazzaville, Bilolo in the Republic of Congo May 1997

Rwandan Hutu refugees together with other refugees that were in Kinshasa and Brazzaville were relocated to Bilolo Refugee camps. However, it did not take long before the Cobra and Ninja for both Sassou Nguesso and Pascal Lissuba started fighting. Some of Rwandan refugees and other refugees from other countries decided to continue fleeing again from Brazzaville towards Gabon, Central African Republic, and Cameroon. Others went up to Guinea. Some were so tired and exhausted they decided not to flee any more. Instead they stayed in Brazzaville to face whatever challenges could come. Others continued fleeing up to Lekoni in Bongoville, Gabon. When they arrived in Gabon they were taken to Franceville.

Rwandan Hutu Refugees in Lekoni, Franceville, Gabon June 1997

HUTU REFUGEE KID PULLING THE BODY OF HER MUM
AFTER BEING KILLED BY RPF IN DR CONGO

In Lekoni the Rwandan refugees were not so lucky because they found Tutsis who had lived and married Gabonese women and they immediately established an anti-Hutu refugee newsletter called Lekoni Matin (meaning Lekoni morning). This RPF propaganda mouthpiece was designed to instigate hatred against Hutu refugees in Gabon. The newspaper published stories defaming refugees and calling them genocidaires. The hatred against innocent Hutu refugees grew faster and later Paul Kagame and his government which was led by Twagiramungu Faustin they dispatched General Charles Kayonga to go to Gabon and negotiate Rwandan Hutu refugees deportation. In charge of UNHCR in Gabon was a lady by the name Louise who hailed from Cameroon. She was given a huge amount of dollars in order to assist in influencing Gabonese politicians to expel Rwandan Hutu Refugees. Among those who were involved in accomplishing RPF plan to forcibly deport Rwandan refugees from Franceville to Kigali was also the Governor of Franceville. UNHCR facilitated the process by telling refugees that they must leave Gabonese soil because UNHCR does not have land but in true sense Ms. Louise did everything to make sure Rwandan Hutu refugees were expelled from Gabon. The process was just peaceful but militarized.

What Really Happened to the Rwandan Hutus Refugees in Franceville, Gabon 1997?

UNHCR asked the Franceville governor to bring soldiers to threaten and intimidate refugees so that they accept to be deported back to Rwanda. In the presence of Gen. Charles Kayonga, and the US representative. They all brought enough money and they were staying in the nearby hotel at MVENGE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. Refugees of course refused to accept

MVENGE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FRANCEVILLE

what UNHCR representative Ms. Louise was asking them, to go back to Rwanda. It was not an easy thing for refugees who had walked more than 6000km on foot to be told that now you are going back to Rwanda and yet you have spent the last three years running from RPF and now you are told you are going back to Rwanda. What was shocking is that there had been numerous reports on Human Rights abuse in Rwanda and one of them was a UNHCR-sponsored report which was to be known as the Garson Report which never saw the light because of UNHCR and US pressure to kill it. This report outlined thousands of cases of people who disappeared. Most of those disappeared were people who sometimes related to some of these refugees who had been running away to save their lives. Now they are being told to go back to Rwanda and be butchered as their relatives who had been killed by RPF. In addition, a RPF representative Gen. Charles Kayonga who was a Colonel then had flew all the way from Kigali to come for refugees’ heads. However, UNHCR overlooked all this and subjected these refugees to brutality and possible murder.

When the Franceville governor brought in soldiers they were given instructions to beat us and rape our sisters, daughters, and wives we were with. That is what happened. They separated men from women and put women in their own room and raped them day and night. They also put red pepper in women’s private parts whereas women they were spread with red pepper in their eyes. It was a three day’s ordeal which saw two people losing their lives. At the end refugees had nowhere to go. We accepted to be taken back to Rwanda because it was no longer possible to remain in Franceville Gabon and they did not want to let us go back to Congo Brazzaville, two refugees had already died of beatings from Gabonese gendarmerie and Rwanda was determined to have our heads decapitated. Then UNHCR representative known by only one name Louise said that they wanted to give Rwandan refugees exile somewhere else in another country. When all refugees were inside the plane they were all taken to Rwanda. More than 540 refugees comprising children as young as 1 year old were taken to prison in Camp Kigali where they were tortured both physically and mentally. They used to be beaten up three times a day in what they termed as breakfast, late lunch, and supper. This included mob beatings where more than 10 solders could swarm on one person hitting with whatever they could lay their hands on.

545 Rwandan Hutu Refugees from Gabon to Kanombe, Kigali July 1997

At their arrival in Kigali the Gabonese Rwandan refugees were received with beatings, torture of all sorts and threats that they were going to be killed. It did not take long before the RPF started killing them one by one. They were denied food, water, and medicine. All these refugees were put in a clandestine torture chamber where they couldn’t sleep or sit but spend their entire life inside standing. Many people’s legs and testicles started swelling. The RPF denied refugees water and food but promised them enough beatings. It is in this process that many refugees started dying of beatings and other sorts of torture. Briefly the following is a list of those who succumbed to death due to RPF torture after they were forcibly deported from Gabon to Rwanda by the UNHCR under the supervision of Gen. Charles Kayonga: Some of the names are of your brothers and sisters who were killed and disappeared and you didn’t know that RPF and KAYONGA sucked their last blood. All the list below were killed by starvation and beatings. Others were killed by a hammer in their heads.

PLEASE DISTRIBUTE THIS LIST WIDELY SO THAT SOME OF THE MOTHERS OR CHILDREN CN NOW KNOW HOW THEIR BELOVED ONES DIED. IF UNHCR GABON DID NOT COOPERATE WITH RPF GOVERNMENT REPRESENTED BY GEN CHARLES KAYONGA THIS PEOPLE WOULD STILL BE ALIVE. HOWEVER, I MUST ALSO THANK AN INKOTANYI USED TO BE KNOWN AS SGT MUROKORE POKEZA FROM CYANGUGU WHO, DESPITE THE HARSH PUNISHMENTS WERE AWATING FOR HIM, HE MADE SURE TO BRING WATERS TO THE VICTIMS WHENEVER HE WAS KUBURINZI. MAY GOD BLESS HIM. ALSO FATHER LAURENT LORENZO OF FRANCEVILLE PARISH WHO PLEADED WITH THE UNHCR REPRESENTATIVES TO ALLOW RWANDAN REFUGEES TO BE ALLOWED TO GO BACK TO CONGO BRAZZAVILLE INSTEAD OF BEING FORCIBLY DEPORTED TO RWANDA WHERE THEY COULD BE KILLED. 

Who’s been setting Rwandan jails on fire during the World Cup 2014?

July 17, 2014

While the world was passionately watching the World Cup in Brazil, news kept coming from Rwanda about jails inexplicably catching fire. Here is what inyenyerinews.org says about it. This is my rendition of the article originally in Kinyarwanda.

A SURVIVOR OF THE MASS MURDER IN RUBAVU JAIL CALLS FOR HELP

The witnesses of the deaths caused by fires in Rwandan jails can find no words to describe the horror. One of them told us about what he(or she) saw when a jail burned. He also tells us about his worries regarding the future. «  We lost hundreds and hundreds of inmates », said the witness.

 

« Kagame is exterminating us. If it is within your power, please help us without delay. Over 1000 prisoners perished in the fires KAGAME ordered for Rwandan prisons. By reading this you might think that I am exaggerating but it is 500% true because I personally witnessed it.

 

The first action KAGAME has planned to accomplish before his own death is to kill all the inmates in the country in the shortest time possible because he considers them likely to be recruited and fight him in the last war that is about to break out in Rwanda.

 

His second action will be to exterminate all the opponents to his regime. He calls them all FDLR. As they too are likely to take up arms against him at short notice, they must be killed very swiftly.

 

The first action has already started, and preparations for the second action are well advanced. Those who predicted what is about to happen in Rwanda and who dared tell Kagame about it were immediately thrown in jail.

 

If you doubt this news, I challenge you to produce the names of any survivor of the mass murder in Nyakiriba Prison. While you’re at it, try and produce the name of any Muhanga Prison survivor who would have been transferred to another location. I have seen with my own eyes hundreds and hundreds of corpses, mixed with tree trunks and stones, thrown in a huge hole inside the Nyakiriba jail. Whoever has the power to request an independent international investigation about these horrifying murders should act swiftly so that the truth comes out.

Soma iyi nkuru mu kinyarwanda.

Paul Kagame snitching on the West

June 25, 2012

Had to share this. In this press conference, which he gave a few days after his regime had been accused by Western media of helping a Tutsi congolese armed rebellion, Paul Kagame is basically saying f…ck it, I ain’t going down alone, I’ll reveal all of you mofos secrets on TV.
