PANZI-BUKAVU:The Role of UMCOR in Destroying the Lives of Innocent Hutu Refugees in Bukavu DRC Between 1995 and 1996

By Umukundwa Donatha,

From May 1994 I was taking care of my brother Sgt Niyonzima who had been injured by filed mine as he was fighting the enemy in Kigali Ville. I was 15 years then since my family had only three children: my brother Niyonzima, Umukundwa, and our youngest brother Elijah who was 7 years then. Our brother Niyonzima was our hero, our friend, our eldest brother, and our breadwinner. Sgt Niyonzima left school in Gitwe Seventh-Day Adventist College in Gitarama to go to the battle in order to defend the sovereignty of

INTO BUKAVU IN DRC
Rwanda and her independence. However, there was another driving that compelled my brother to join the then Rwandan Armed Forces (FAR). In 1991 when RPF attacked Ruhengeri, they passed through our village in Nyange, Commune Kinigi. Through the process they killed every Hutu they met on their way to Ruhengeri town. That was how they met my hard working dad on his way to the farm and beheaded him. We did not find his head until a year later. Basically we buried our beloved father twice. This traumatized my brother who wanted to defend the country so that there were no other innocent people encountered what befell my dad in 1991. The same year Niyonzima joined the recruitment drive at Camp Mukamira. He was accepted and proceeded for his military education in Buture at "L' Ecole des Sous Officiers" ESO Butare. It was one of the military elitist schools in Rwanda. My brother excelled well and later he was dispatched to Byumba to fight the enemy RPF. He was our hero and a Godly young man. He always encouraged to love school, obey parents, and make God my point of reference. 


5 MAY 1994 A DAY I WILL NEVER FORGET
However, the hopes, dreams, love, happiness, and ambitions were shuttered on 5 May 1994. It was early in the morning and he was leading his soldiers in the combat at Rebero Ridge. That was when he sustained shrapnel in his face and lost two of his eyes. He was our only eye and a door to God's merciful nature. When we received this news every life in our home broke into pieces. I was the only person who could be with him in hospital. I was immediately sent to Kigali, a place I had never been before. It was in middle of crisis of bombs explosions and shelling everywhere. I was with a friend and a neighbor called
RWANDAN HUTU REFUGEES IN EASTERN DRC
Premier Sergent Nkinamubanzi who had come for me so that I take care of my brother. It was a hard choice for my mom. I was only 15. A girl from rural area who had never been away from her parents. My mom could have gone to be closer to my brother but my youngest brother was not feeling well so she had to make a bold decision. She sent me instead. Our journey to where my brother Sgt Niyonzima where the unusual one. We were heading to Kigali but we went back toward Gisenyi. Thank God I was with this friend Premier Sgt Nkinamubanzi who used his influence to get around. We went to Camp Muhoza where we boarded a Lorry to Camp Mukamira where we spent two days waiting for transportation to Camp Gitarama. After arriving to Camp Gitarama we met another friend of his whose name I remember, Sgt Major Simbikangwa who also had a friend injured at the battleground in Gikondo and was admitted at Camp Kanombe. He was driving alone he offered to take us to Camp Gako where my brother had been transferred to. 

THE DAY WE WERE TOLD KIGALI WAS IMPASSABLE
In early morning of May 1995 Sgt Major Simbikangwa, Premier Sgt Nkinamubanzi and myself took to the road heading to Camp Kanombe but few meters away from Camp Gitarama we were told that all casualties in Camp Kanombe and Camp Kigali had been evacuated for Camp Gako. To me I felt good because I knew that we were going to take less time to see my brother whom I thought he needed most as other injured people needed their beloved ones to be with them. Right, we now came back to take the road to South Gitarama to a place where we crossed a long and huge bridge. I don’t remember the name well but it might have been called KURWABUSORO. After crossing we arrived in
A HUTU KID SEARCHING FOR HER MOM
AMONG THE CORPSE OF OTHER REFUGEES
Camp Gako. We went straight to the room where my brother was staying. I vividly remember the first 5 seconds conversation when I entered the room. "Hey, that is my sweet sister Dona, I can’t see you anymore but your voice and smells remain untouched by hard days ahead," he said to me. He was wearing solar glasses. He then removed them to show me the reality of his life. "Here I am Dona, no eyes no hope, but I am glad you are here now. God willing you will see my mother again and tell her that after taking her husband from her, they also came back for son's eyes," he said to me. After hearing all that I was inconsolable. I cried day and night. I never saw a light again. All around me was darkness. No matter how hard and scorching the Bugesera sun could have been, it did not matter anymore. I was always feeling cold. Unlike today there were no cellphones so I couldn't communicate to mom anymore. Now I can try and discern how she felt inside her poor heart. There I had started a new life of a 15 year girl. I had to mature to be a rock that my brother needed. 

FROM CAMP GAKO TO BUTARE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL IN MAY 1994
Few days later we were told to evacuate the hospital to Butare. At this stage my brother was not looking so bad physically. May be he did not want me to feel scared. He could grab my hand then we start walking around the barracks when the Southern sun started retiring. I was his guide. At first I did not understand how this new role was going to help my brother or help me as a human being. It built this an incredible human relationship that no man can define. Apart from being his new eyes, I became his soul. He shifted his trust from mind and heart and replaced it with my presence. He became my genuine companion at that younger age and taught me tenderness, trust, reliability, and compassion. We built this bond that no one could break. Although he had lost his eyes he knew there was someone right there who shared his grief, despair, hope, and trust. I was the one for my brother. The next day we boarded a medical bus for relocation from Camp Gako in Bugesera to Butare University Referral Hospital. I remember in this journey I was surrounded by people with positive attitude. It was URWENYA all throughout the journey until I forgot that I had a patient who had no eyes. Among the people present on the bus were people I cannot remember their names because of my age then and the situation we were all in. However, I remember some of the guys who made a remarkable impact on me. My brother Sgt Niyonzima, his close friend Sgt Nteziyaremye Damien and another prayerful Sgt both from Commune Mukingo. Another soldier from Tero Kinigi who had lost his limb and one eye. There were also two Sgt Majors from Gikongoro and three other Premier Sgt who were members of medical team. I came to learn later that the entire medical team and operation was headed by one of the distinguished doctors that Rwanda has ever had, Lt. Colonel Mugemanyi Froduard. He was a man and a half. I will come back to him later in this story. 

FROM BUTARE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL TO KIGEME HOSPITAL
When we arrived in Butare hospital we could stay long. There was no food for the patients and life was also hard. However one of the most memorable moments I had in Butare hospital is evening devotion where all of us used to go in turns to teach the world of God. One of the songs that comforted me every evening was a song in Kinyarwanda Adventist Hymnal Book goes like this:
"Azaza, ndabizi kwazagaruka azaza Yes'azaza abagenzi bose barembye bazabona Umwami naza kwima."That was the only thing that we were left with. People were dying every second from injuries. Killing was also going on all over the nation. EX-FAR was losing ground faster, and there were rumors of the Burundian soldiers gathering on the border between Rwanda and Burundi ready to come and support their Tutsi relatives. Definitely our hospital was among the fast target. However, the noble man Lt. Col. Dr. Froduard Mugemanyi was both compassionate and strategist. He thought on his feet and later we were at Kigemi Hospital which was located in Gikongoro. Here, life was miserable but my brother was getting much better. He was no longer in pain. His gauged out eyes' wounds had healed properly but of course he always relied on me for any activities. What I liked most about him he never missed church on Sabbath. When I was weak to go he could find someone to take him to church but he never missed. Later we relocated to Gihundwe Hospital in Cyangugu. It has now dawned on us that we are leaving our forefathers land for the first time in our history. Whereas I was worried about the future of my brother Sgt Niyonzima, he was worried most about my mother and our youngest brother. It had been now almost three months since the last time I waved goodbye to them. We did not know what happened to them in the last two and half months. We are now in Cyangugu and the last news we are having is that the then government of Rwanda and the entire FAR Military Command have relocated to Camp Bigogwe in Gisenyi and some hundreds of thousands have already crossed the border to Goma in Eastern Zaire (DRC). Soon we crossed over into Bukavu, the Southern Capital of South Kivu.

CROSSING THE RWANDO-CONGOLESE BORDER FOR THE FIRST TIME (24/7/1994)
On the evening we crossed into Zaire there were around 1000 wounded soldiers, civilians, and their families. They all totaled about 5,000 people who crossed the border and were led to Camp Panzi. It was a military camp in South of Bukavu. It was in a pathetic conditions, which immediately reminded me that indeed we had left Rwanda. It also reminded me the loss of a man who had made us proud of our country Rwanda. It
A HUTU ORPHANED REFUGEE IN DRC 1994
reminded me all modern barracks Habyarimana had erected around the country. Full of clean and intelligent soldiers. People who never demanded anything from the citizens people who made each young Rwandan wants to be part of the Rwanda Armed Forces (FAR). Camp Panzi was like an abandoned ruin but to my surprised eyes, there were people living in those ruined houses. "Sergent look, there are people inside there!" I shouted to my brother trying to show him those Congolese soldiers. "I can’t see do you remember?" he posed. This was the place we were going to spend the next two years. Congolese soldiers and people were generous tough poor they were. They immediately blended well with BaRwandais as they used to refer to us. I was growing up too. Though my brother had no eyes, he had healed and accepted his fate. He was happy I was with him. Though I was I teen in a foreign country, with a lot of temptations from men of my age and older, I stayed true to my brother's expectations. He had been hurt enough I did not want to add salt into his fresh wounds. 

FATHER FRANCO, BROTHER PAUL, AND COL. DR. FRODUARD MUGEMANYI
Later Caritas International in cooperation with the Catholic Diocese of Bukavu helped to establish a medical camp for all the wounded people in the camp. Panzi camp became a solace for me and my brother because Dr. Mugemanyi took us in and we stayed at the hospital for all time we spent in Bukavu. Dr. Mugemanyi did all he could to make sure that all the wounded warriors and their families don’t go hungry. Dr. Mugemanyi is the only man who stayed clean in all the process and sacrificed his life for the wounded warriors. Without him many wounded EX-FAR could have died because of tetanus and other infectious diseases. I remember one day his family who lived in Belgium came together with the kids so that they could see their dad and implored him to go with them but he told them these words. "Je vous aime mes petit jolies, vous etes toujours dans mon coeur. Jour et nuit je pense à vous. Je rêve à ta jolie maman. Je me souviens notre enfance. Je vous visiterai quand Je peux. Je suis sure que votre maman et toujours là pour vous, mais ici il y'a des gens misérables que le monde ne veut pas. Leur future reste avec moi. Le Bon Dieu les a mis dans mes bras. Je ne veux pas les abandoner." Roughly translated "I love you and cherish you my beloved young ones. You are and will always be in my heart. I think of you day and night. I dream about your beautiful mom. I think about our young age, our childhood. Whenever I can I will visit you wherever you might be. I know and trust that your mom will take care of you well. There are other people here who have been hated by the world. No one cares about them. God has put them in my hands and they have no other help. I can’t leave them now. Please forgive me. They need me most. That is how much Dr. Mugemanyi Froduard sacrificed for all the wounded warriors in 1995. Dr. Mugemanyi went out of his way to advocate us whereas every body else was running away from us. Please see his interview here with TERRY LEONARD of the Associated Press. 

At Panzi Hospital they were other Good Samaritan like Father Franco, and another Senior Father who organized the assistance of people like my brother. All these clergies were killed by RPF in Shimanga when they were fleeing RPF in October 1996. However, there was another group I wanted to talk about in this article. The UNITED METHODIST CHURCH ORGANIZATION FOR REFUGEES (UMCOR). This is an American based charity organization affiliated to the Methodist Church of America. This organization in disguise of charity infiltrated into Panzi Camp in the name of bringing medical assistance to wounded warriors in Camp Panzi. However, this UMCOR had ulterior motives of coming into refugee camps. It was a gang of spies. American spies who were collecting information on daily basis for RPF and US. Some of the people I still remember are other so called missionaries who worked for UMCOR Bukavu and spent most of their times spying on refugees. They used to bring firewood in the Camp Panzi but their mission was to spy the EX-FAR activities and report to Kigali. Among the team were Gene and Jan Jones who spent most of their time navigating between Bukavu, Goma, Nairobi, and Kigali. These people can later be found working in Afghanistan after their mission in DR Congo ended in July 1996 when they knew beforehand that RPF was going to attack Zaire. These people went to work in Afghanistan as it is seen on this web:http://mediasense.com/blog/archives/75. All of us know well what happened to Rwandan Hutu refugees in Eastern DRC in 1996. The war by RPF, Burundi, and Uganda backed by US started in Uvira and Nyangezi spread into Camp Panzi and continued to all refugee camps in Eastern DRC.

HOW UMCOR CAUSED THE DEATHS OF MILLION HUTU REFUGEES IN ZAIRE
During the time Rwandan refugees stayed in Bukavu and Eastern DRC, UMCOR provided a haven for US spies in Eastern DRC and created a zone for future RPF invasion. Dr. Mugemanyi had worked hard to save most of injuries that we had in Camp Panzi. Most of them had recovered and doing well. Some of them went on to find love and found happiness again. Caritas International through Panzi Parish where catholic brothers were staying, provided me with opportunity to go back to school so that I could
CAMP PANZI IN BUKAVU DRC IN 1995
become useful to myself but also to my now blind brother Sgt Niyonzima. I joined a school in Bukavu and my brother could now stay at the medical tent where other patients could help me him walk around and come back in the evening to sleep. I was now an adult clocking 18 years. I had hopes for myself but also for my brother. I had become his best friend, a sister, and a mother. Guys in the camp were so nice to me. They could help him take a shower since our Rwandan culture does not allow a mature girl to see her brother naked, so they could come in whenever it is needed and make sure my brother is comfortable. People from UMCOR USA also used to show interests in my brother who was blind but could speak some English since he had gone to an Adventist school in Rwankeri Northern Rwanda. They could bring some little gifts just to make them look like people who were interested in helping but for sure what they wanted was information. They were plotting to make us suffer again. It did not take long in less than a month they all disappeared in a thin air. They had collected and provided all information they needed about EX-FAR, FAZ, and our soldiers who were quarantined in Camp Bulonge in DRC. The UMCOR team never came back to Bukavu because they had accomplished their mission of setting us up for more butchering. The work of UMCOR spying in the refugee camps in Eastern DRC gave birth to the deaths of 8 million Rwandan and Congolese refugees in DRC. It was also the beginning of filling RPF dreams of putting as much Hutus in prison as possible. 


WHEN RPF BUTCHERED FATHER FRANCO, CATHOLIC BROTHERS, AND RWANDAN WOUNDED REFUGEES FROM CAMP PANZI IN SHIMANGA
When we fled from Bukavu toward Nyamibwe we were thousands of both Rwandan and Congolese refugees. The bus which was carrying wounded refugees and medical equipment had to follow the road as if it was leading to Goma. However, there was no clear road that would have allowed them to proceed to Goma. I had kissed the last good bye to my brother because he was supposed to go by bus so that he reaches as farthest as he could in his state. I fled on foot together with other refugees. However, I did not know that was the last time I saw my beloved brother. As they fled by bus it was stuck in the mud somewhere passed Bukavu. Those who could walk fled on foot but those who were blind and other crippled ones who couldn’t walk were left in the bus hoping that the RPF murderer will feel pity and let them go back home to Rwanda. It never happened. When RPF and Burundian soldiers arrived there they set the bus on fire and all people inside. I learned about my brother's inferno death a month later when I arrived in Walikale. That is how UMCOR contributed in the deaths of millions of innocent Rwandan refugees. I hope when the Heavens open when the time for judgment comes and righteous ones are reunited again I will be all smiles as I hold my brother tight again. Love you brother.

During the time Rwandan refugees stayed in Bukavu and Eastern DRC, UMCOR provided a haven for US spies in Eastern DRC and created a zone for future RPF invasion. Dr. Mugemanyi had worked hard to save most of injuries that we had in Camp Panzi. Most of them had recovered and doing well. Some of them went on to find love and found happiness again. Caritas International through Panzi Parish where catholic brothers were staying, provided me with opportunity to go back to school so that I could
CAMP PANZI IN BUKAVU DRC IN 1995
become useful to myself but also to my now blind brother Sgt Niyonzima. I joined a school in Bukavu and my brother could now stay at the medical tent where other patients could help me him walk around and come back in the evening to sleep. I was now an adult clocking 18 years. I had hopes for myself but also for my brother. I had become his best friend, a sister, and a mother. Guys in the camp were so nice to me. They could help him take a shower since our Rwandan culture does not allow a mature girl to see her brother naked, so they could come in whenever it is needed and make sure my brother is comfortable. People from UMCOR USA also used to show interests in my brother who was blind but could speak some English since he had gone to an Adventist school in Rwankeri Northern Rwanda. They could bring some little gifts just to make them look like people who were interested in helping but for sure what they wanted was information. They were plotting to make us suffer again. It did not take long in less than a month they all disappeared in a thin air. They had collected and provided all information they needed about EX-FAR, FAZ, and our soldiers who were quarantined in Camp Bulonge in DRC. The UMCOR team never came back to Bukavu because they had accomplished their mission of setting us up for more butchering. The work of UMCOR spying in the refugee camps in Eastern DRC gave birth to the deaths of 8 million Rwandan and Congolese refugees in DRC. It was also the beginning of filling RPF dreams of putting as much Hutus in prison as possible. 


WHEN RPF BUTCHERED FATHER FRANCO, CATHOLIC BROTHERS, AND RWANDAN WOUNDED REFUGEES FROM CAMP PANZI IN SHIMANGA
When we fled from Bukavu toward Nyamibwe we were thousands of both Rwandan and Congolese refugees. The bus which was carrying wounded refugees and medical equipment had to follow the road as if it was leading to Goma. However, there was no clear road that would have allowed them to proceed to Goma. I had kissed the last good bye to my brother because he was supposed to go by bus so that he reaches as farthest as he could in his state. I fled on foot together with other refugees. However, I did not know that was the last time I saw my beloved brother. As they fled by bus it was stuck in the mud somewhere passed Bukavu. Those who could walk fled on foot but those who were blind and other crippled ones who couldn’t walk were left in the bus hoping that the RPF murderer will feel pity and let them go back home to Rwanda. It never happened. When RPF and Burundian soldiers arrived there they set the bus on fire and all people inside. I learned about my brother's inferno death a month later when I arrived in Walikale. That is how UMCOR contributed in the deaths of millions of innocent Rwandan refugees. I hope when the Heavens open when the time for judgment comes and righteous ones are reunited again I will be all smiles as I hold my brother tight again. Love you brother.

BYUMBA:NZAMURINDA FELECIEN NUMUDAMU WE BO MU RUBAYA I BYUMBA BISHWE BAZIRAKO NGO BABA BAKORANA NABARWANYA UBUTEGETSI BWA kAGAME

By Senzoga James,

Nkuko amakuru atugeraho avuye kubantu bizewe bo mu Karere ka Bicumbi ahahoze hitwa Commune Giti i byumba. uyumunsi mugitondo abaturage ba Rubaya baramukiye kunkuru ibabaje cyane aho basanze abaturanyi babo bigihe kirekire bishwe bakubiswe amafuni nabantu batari bamenyekana. Gusa nubwo abaturage wabonaga bafite ubwoba bwinshi badashaka kuvuga byagaragaragako bazi ko iyo famille y umugore numugabo we bishwe na FPR nkuko bamwe barimo kubivugira mumatamatama badashaka kwigaragaza abaribo kuko bazi ko baramutse bumvikanye ko balimo gushinja leta ya FPR ubwo bwicanyi nabo bahita bakurikizwaho. 

AKARERE ABANTU BABIRI BAPFIRIYEMO BANIZWE
NABANTU BAKEKWA KUBA ABASIRIKALI BA FPR
Abazi neza uyu muryango wa bwana Nzimurinda Felecien n’umugore we Cyabuga Josephine bo mu mudugudu wa Mugurano bavugako arabantu beza kandi bahoranaga ituze. Ikindi abantu bali babaziho nuko FPR yabamaze kurubyaro mugihe yayogozaga ibintu ibyumba kuburyo ubuntamwana bari basigaranye. Muli 1992 ubwo iyi famille yarituye za Bwesige mucyahoze ari Byumba inkotanyi zaraje maze zibicira abana bane icyarimo aho bari bacumbitse za Nyagahanga. Muli 1994 ubwo zamanukaga inkubiri zaje kwicira abandi bana babiri baribasigaranye ubwo zabasanganga za Gituza kuri Commune. Ibi rero byatumye uyu muryango wa Bwana Nzimurinda Felecien n’umugore we Cyabuga Josephine usigara mapfubyi.

Ikindi abantu bakekerako yatumye aba bantu bicwa nuko uyu muryango wari warahawe uburenganzira bwo kujya bafata amafranga yo gukondesha mumazu yabakuru babo cyane cyane basaza ba Josephine nabo bishwe ninkotanyi abandi tukaba tutazi niba bakiriho cg se barapfuye. Ayo mafranga rero yubukonde yaje nyuma yuko batsindiye urubanza rwuwo mutungo wabenwabo mugihe izi nzu zari zarabohojwe na FPR nabandi basirikali bakuru mubutegetsi bari bazimazemo imyaka irenga 115 ntakintu nakimwe batanga kuri bene ayo mazu. Ibi nabyo bikaba byaba inkomoko yuru rupfu rwo guhorahoza aba babyeyi bombi bishwe. 

Tubutse ko Nzimurinda Felecien n’umugore we Cyabuga Josephine bakomokaga mu kagari ka Ngange mu murenge wa Byumba ho mu karere ka Gicumbi. Ikilimo gutangaza abantu bose nuko iyi famille yishwe ubwo muruyu mudugudu hari hamaze icyumweru abasirikari binkotanyi napolisi ya FPR bagobereza hano. "Nubundi twari twarabivuze, iri gobereza ryizi nkotanyi ntiryagombaga gucura ubusa kuko ntabwo twabonaga impamvu burigihe hahoraga patrouille yabantu bari kuburinzi nkaho rwose tuli muntambara, none baramuhitanye," nkuko byavuzwe na Nkuranga. 

ubwo inkuru yageze k'umunyamabanga nshingwabikorwa w’umurenge wa Rubaya Ngendabanga Jerome. Aba bantu bashobora kuba bali bamaze icyumweru bishwe. Ariko kuberako ntabana bagira ntamuntu numwe wabimenye. Abaturage baje kubimenya kuberako abantu banyuze kuri urwo rugo bakumva umunuko bagahita bajya kureba. Nubwo polisi nubutegetsi bwa FPR buvugako urugi bagasanze rudanangiye maze bafungura idirishya barebyemo babona abantu baryamye ku buriri barapfuye ntabwo aribyo. Kuko umuryango winyuma warufunguye byerekana ko ababishe bamaze kubikora bagasohokera mucyanzu. Tubibutse iyi famille yarimaranye imyaka 35 ariko FPR ikaba yarabiciye abantu bose kuburyo nyine ntanumuntu basize kwino si. 

Ibi kandi bije bikurikiye ibura ryabantu benshi bamze iminsi bashimutwa na FPR mukarere ka Rubaya nahandi henshi muraka karere ka Byumba babaziza kuba bakorana nu Umwanzi. Abantu bose ubona badashaka kuvuga uretse kubivugira mumazu yabo naho ubundi Umwanzi atumereye nabi nugutabara. FPR yongeye kubura ibyubwicanyi bwayo bwo muli za 1990s ilimo kuzura inkovu za kera aho abantu bibyumba twishwe umusubizo ubwo yajyaga itubagira abantu ikababwira ngo nibifate mumifuka kandi yabasatuye imbavu. Akarakurikira aka tuzagakizwa n'Imana.

Iyi migambi mibisha yerekana ko ingoma ya FPR nabanyamerika badashobora kutwemerera kubaho kenze tubirwaniye. Dore abanyarwanda navuze haruguru babasore ubu tuli mumitwe yose ya FPR. Nubwo tudafite ubuyobozi dufite amaboko abatutsi badashobora kutwaka. Nibyo bamaze imyaka 20 kungoma batwica urubozo ariko ndagirango ngire inama ya kigabo kubana babahutu bose banyumva nababyeyi babo.

Ariko kuko imigambi yabo ari ukuduhaka baduhatira kurongora bashiki babo kuko bazi neza ko tuzi gutunga abagore neza. Ikibabaje nuko batemera ko tubyarana nabo. Ibi byose nimumigambi ya RPF yokwica amaraso yose yabahutu nkuko babigenje mumyaka 500 bamaze kungoma. 

ABABYEYI BACU NIBARWANE INTAMBARA BABWIRE ABANA AMATEKA YURWANDA BAHEREYE KO URWANDA RUGIZWE NA PREFECTURES 10
Tubaye abagabo turi mubuhake nkubwo basokuruza bacu bavukiyemo bakavukuriramo ndetse bakanabupfiramo. Nonese twese twiyemeje gupfa urwo rupfu mumaboko y Umwanzi wacu wa kera ariwe RPF? Ntibikabeho!

MBESE AMASHYAKA RNC NA FDLR YABA ARAMWE MAGAYANE YAVUZE AZABOHOZA ABANYARWANDA?

Banyarwanda, banyarwandakazi ncuti zurwanda muramahoro masa. Uyumunsi nshatse ko tuganira kukiganiro radio Ijwi rya Rubanda na Ikonderainfo bagiranye na Bwana Gen Kayumba Nyamwasa.
GEN KAYUMBA NYAMWASA
Ndimubantu bakunda gukurikirana politiki ya Rwanda nkarebera hamwe namateka yaranzwe muli politiki nyarwanda. Ariko ibyo byose nabyo nkabikorera analysis nkurikije ibyo abahanuzi babanyarwanda bagiye bavuga kera cyane mbere yuko abanyarwanda bamenya gusomaa no kwandika. Mubavugwa cyane ni Nyirabiyoro wi Karagwe ubu ibarizwa muli Tanzania ariko icyo gihe hari mugihugu cyu Rwanda. Hari na Magayane wavukaga mukarere ka Bukonya muri Prefecture ya Ruhengeri ubu ubutegetsi bwa bene Kanjogera bwahinduye bukayita Musanze ariko abanyarwanda twese tuzi neza ko ari Ruhengeri izahora ari Ruhengeri. Undi wavuzwe cyane ni Mama Domitilla w'Umunyamurenge. Hagakubitiraho nabandi batavuzwe cyane halimo Sgt Nsabagasani. 

ABAHANUZI NYARWANDA NIBYO BAVUZE KUNGOMA YA KAGAME
Ikigaragara nuko impinduka zigenda ziza mugihujgu cyu Rwanda. Ndagirango mbibutseko impanuro ziza nkuko ubuhnuzi Imana yahaga abahanuzi babayisraeli byatwaraga imyaka myinsih. Imana ikura abayahudi mugihugu cya Misiri byatwaye aba abantu imyaka 40 kugirango basubire mugihugu cyabo
INGABO YA FDLR 
kandi mubyukuri ari urugendo rwagombaga gutwara ukwezi. Nomu Rwanda rero niko byagenze kandi naniko bikigenda. Nyirabiyoro yabwiye umwami ko ingoma ye izavaho nabi kandi abahutu bakigenga nuko umwami aba yishe nyirabiyoro. Ntibyatinze uwitwa Domitilla w'umunyamurenge yabwiye abatutsi ko nubwo bahunze kandi bazasubira mugihugu cyu Rwanda. Niko byagenze abazi Mama Domitilla twavuganye bemezako yashatse no kubwira bwana Kagame urumutegereje ariko Kagame aranga. Nyuma Mama Domitilla yaguye mu Rwanda nkuko yari yarabihanuye. Umuhanuzi ukunzwe kandi Kagame ahora yikanga kandi akemera nindaguze ni Bwana Magayane. Uyu mugabo yabwiye ba Kanyarengwe uko bizabagendekera uburyo abantu bazahunga benshi ndetse abanyuze mumajyaruguru yu Rwanda bagapfa buri munsi niko byagenze. Ndetse abwira Kagame uburyo azavaho nabi kubera ko arangwa n' umururumba. Mwese murabibona uko murwanda byifashe abantu baricwa ninzara. Ibyo byose Magayane yarabivuze. Nonese uko mubona urwanda rugeze hehe?

Ukuri nuko abana besnhi Kagame akoresha muli State Policing nabana babahutu. Abana yiciye base guhera muli za 1990s. Aba bana Kagame akoresha bose ntibakunda ubutegetsi bwa Kagame kandi bazi neza ko ababyeyi babo bishwe nubukene kubera ingoma ya Kalinga igihe cyose iyo nganiriye nabo baba bavuga bati icyaduha FDLR cg se RNC bakaza izi mbunda twazibasanganiza. Ibi byerekana ko FDLR na RNC byagombye kuba barihamwe kugirango bivune umwanzi.

INYUNGU RNC IFITE MUKWIFATANYA NA FDLR
Ntagushidikanya ko FDLR igaragara nkumutwe uharanira kwishira no kwizana kwabanyarwanda ariko abenshi arabahutu. Abahutu rero bibona muli FDLR nkumutwe wabo bajyamo baziko bisanga. Nukuvugako numukecuru rukukuri iyo umubajije ibya FDLR aravuga ati abo nabana banjye. RNC kwifatanya na FDLR byatuma abantu badakomeza kuyibona nkakagatsiko kabatutsi baba exptremist bagamije kugumya guhaka abahutu. Ariko RNC ifatanije na FDLR kwaba ari ukwikiza nibirego byinshi abahutu bahora baabrega ko RNC yashinzwe kubera ko abatutsi barimo gusahuranwa ko ariko ideology ya RNC ariyayindi yo kwica abahutu bagashigikira ingoma ntutsi iriho mu Rwanda. Gufatanya kwa RNC kwaba kubaye intandaro ya democracy twese twifuza mu Rwanda aho abahutu nabatutsi barwanya umwanzi wabo icyarimwe. Ikibazo cyabahutu nabatutsi cyaba gishize kuko nabatutsi besnhi banga gushigikira FDLR kuko babona ko ari umutwe wabahutu waba ugarutse kubatsembatsemba babona ko bafite ijambo mwibohoza ryigihug. Erega abesnhi mubantu bifuza u Rwanda rwabose. RNC kwifatanya na FDLR byazanayorohera mugusobanura ubwicanyi Kayumba nagatsiko ke baregwa bakoreye inzirakarengane zabahutu mu Rwanda no muli Congo. ntagushidikanya ko byatanga insinzi yabanyarwanda.

INYUNGU FDLR IFITE MUGUFATANYA NA RNC
Nkuko nabivuze haruguru FDLR ifite abantu benshi bayikurikira muli ideology yayo ariko
ABAYOBOZI BA FDLR MULI DRC
ntamahanga ifite ayuva kuko FPR igenda iyirega kuba yarishe abatutsi muli genocide anaribyo biyihejeje hanze imyaka 20 yose. Ntagushidikanya ko FDLR ibonye ingufu za gisirikali abanyarwanda besnshi cyane urubyiruko rwabahutu bose bayita inyuma bakayirwanira inkundura. Ariko ikibazo abesnhi mumahanga bayobona ko iba igamije gutsembatsemba abatutsi analibyo Kigali iyirega. Mubyukuri rero FDLR ifatanije na RNC abesnhi tubona nkishyaka ryabatutsi batavuga rumwe na FPR byayifasha cyane kuko Kagame yaba atabonye uburyo ayirega ko ije kwica abatutsi kandi RNC ili muruwo mutwe. FDLR igomba guha RNC imyanya yubuyobozi kugirango muli decision zifashwe RNC nayo ibe izilimo kugirango birengere inyungu zabatutsi. ibibyaha ingufu nyinshi uyu mutwe kandi bigatuma abesnhi murubyiruko rufite intwaro ruza rwisanga muli COALITION. 

Narangiza iyinyandiko nsaba abantu bo muli RNC kubitekerezaho koko niba bashaka gukuraho amakimbirane mubanyarwanda no gukuraho ingoma ya FPR hakaza democracy mu Rwanda nuko RNC igomba kureka ibintu byokwishira hejuru maze ikemera igafatanya na FDLR. Niba ataribyo twe dukomeza kubonamo RNC bwa bwishongozi bwabatutsi basanganywe bumva ko aribo babona ikibazo cyabanyarwanda neza kurusha abahutu. Ikindi RNC igomba kumenya nuko ntagihe nakimwe RNC izinjira urwanda idafite imfashanyo mubanyapolitiki ningabo zigizwe nabahutu. Na FDLR igomba kumenyako ukwishirahejuru ngo ntibafatanya na RNC kuberako batwishe umusubizo muli Congo na songamana muli Ruhengeri na Gisenyi ibyo ntacyo bikivuze muli politiki there is no permanent enemy. Kandi nkurikije ikiganiro Bwana Kayumba yatanze kwitahuka nikondera nuko yamaze kwemera amakosa yakoze cg se yakoreshejwe akiri muli FPR kandi koko iyo uli umusirikari burigihe wumvira umukuru wigihug kuko consititution imuha uburenganzira bwo kukumanika wanze kumwumvira. 

MAGAYANE ATI UMUNSI UBWATSI BWAMAJYEPFO NAMAJYARUGURU BWAHUYE IGIHURU KIZABYARA IGIHUNYIRA. UYU USHOBORA KUBA ARUMUNSI FDLR NA RNC BEMEYE GUSHIRA IMBARAGA ZABO HAMWE. Abahutu nabatutsi bagomba kurenga ibyabaye bagashakira hamwe umuti wikibazo cyu Rwanda uzaboneka aruko Kagame nagatsiko ke kavugijwe amahiri. Ikigaragara cyo nuko Kagame agiye guhindura consititution kandi akaba yiteguye kurwana solution twese baba abahutu cg se abatutsi bamurwanya dufite nimwe. Nugushira hamwe kandi ndabona Kagame azafatirwa mumiringoti ya Jali nkuko Col. Gaddafi nawe yakuwe muri Ruhurura.

Have you noticed that Rwanda's "success story" has suddenly switched from "foreign aid" to "borrowing"?

RWANDA: KEEPING TRACK OF KAGAME'S BORROWING ADDICTION
A $400 million eurobond issued last summer, a $22 million local currency bond this month, and a record breaking $1 billion bond planned for next year!
Paul Kagame has invested most of
his wealth in Israel and UK.He does'nt
care whether the country goes bankrupcy
Sometimes I wonder if Kagame or his servants have read "A Game As Old As Empire". [oh and you too should read it by the way]. The book may helps understand how Kagame got addicted to an extravagant lifestyle that he had never heard of when he was young, stupid, and in the bushes. Kagame has received a lot of free money in form of foreign aid that he hijacked into buying more guns to kill and intimidate his compatriots for over 20 years. Kagame also made a lot of money from looting minerals from DRC and that he wasted on private jets, corrupting lobbyists, spending hotel rooms as expensive as $20 thousand a night, and many other stuff he did not really need. With a fat ego he has nurtured over the years, Kagame does not realize that good things don't always last. And he's busy setting the tone from above telling Rwandans that they are doing just fine, saying it in a way that is really disturbing for anyone thinking long-term.
Rwanda does not have natural resources, and cannot advantageously compete in service market since its educational system sucks. Why? Partly because Kagame dares to tell the younger generations awkward things such as the "educated" is the "stupid". Additionally, the average Rwandan citizen is poor, and the regime has suspended financial aid for students.
And it is not just education programs that are struggling financially. Kagame has starved the Rwanda's public system by embezzling public funds into Crystal Venture, a mafia-like business vehicle Kagame uses to maliciously "privatize" any lucrative SOE (State Owned Enterprise). Last time was EWSA, a utilities company, and next is likely to be the Social Security fund. The latter has become the Finance ministry's cash cow or emergency fund whenever it runs out of cash to pay the big salaries of public servants. Notice that foreign aid made up about 50% of the nations's budget which pays these salaries. Now Kagame thinks he can keep paying these big wages by swiping the credit card. It does not work like that in the real world. At least not in the long run.
Soon later Kagame will have to learn the hard way. Sadly enough, he will have to slash the big wages. He will have to put his elite class through austerity measures, and that will be the end of Kagame as we know him. Remember, Kagame runs on "economic miracle" without which he's a criminal and a genocidaire in the eyes of Rwanda and in the eyes of DRC.
Kagame has started the process to cut salaries, but he's not sure how to proceed. Recently Kagame authorized civil servants to sign employment contracts elsewhere which was a no go zone in past when foreign aid afforded him to pay big salaries. He's hoping the private sector can slowly absorb these public servants. What private sector? In Rwanda there's no private sector outside Kagame's Crystal Venture.
Why will Kagame be finished if he slashes salaries and continues refusing to open the coffers of Crustal Venture? Because most top earners are in military officers whom Kagame has failed to demobilize. Kagame does not what to do with them. Rwanda is a tiny country in the region, but has a bigger more men in uniform and more military generals than any country in its region. Kagame has more more generals than Rwanda needs. Kagame has so many generals that he can no longer control the his army. RDF military chain of command is so fractured that the soldiers have no idea whose orders to obey. The sad part is that Kagame has to keep promoting the military officers in ranks because otherwise he would have to retire them, which he does not have the balls to do.
Now foreign aid is running dry due to Kagame's human rights abuses and Rwanda is maxing on its credit card. Things have gotten so bad that Rwanda is borrowing in local currency to pay debt. For instance, the RWF15.5 billion ($22 million) bond being issued this August is intended to cover a RWF18.5 billion balloon payment that is due on a RWF43.5 billion 5-year bond issued locally in 2008 with a 2014 maturity. Kagame is lying that the August issue is intended to pay for infrastructure project. However, notice that he refrains from specifying which infrastructure to avoid answering tough questions in the future. Borrowing on local markets offers added conveniency because BNR, Rwanda's mother bank, can print money to repay the bond. On the flip side? Excessive printing dilutes the currency value and exacerbates the already rampant inflation in Rwanda. And by the way, notice one of the factors bankrupting Rwanda's import export sector is "negative foreign exchange effects". By borrowing to pay debt, Kagame is taking on a huge gambling risk. The alternative would be to default on the due payments and risk a credit ratings downgrade, and a rejection of (or an astronomical interest rate for) Rwanda's 2015 eurobond issue for $1 billion.
Kagame has also tried to tap into the equity markets, but but Kigali stock market boasts only two companies - Bank of Kigali and brewery company Bralirwa net profit has dramatically gone down during 2013 and is down 29% in 1H 2014 versus last year.
Kagame bankrupting Rwanda and has become a huge liability for the Rwandan people.
