RWANDA-UN:Kagame's Regime Is More Interested In Covering Up Its Crimes Rather Than Properly Representing Africa

Rwanda At The UN Security Council (UNSC): Kagame's Regime Is More Interested In Covering Up Its Crimes Rather Than Properly Representing Africa
Before Rwanda's membership expires soon, Kagame is hoping to rewrite history in a way that completely erases any reference to the crimes committed by RPF against innocent hutu populations, crimes that amount to genocide.

As I have always said, one does not need to deny the genocide against tutsis in order acknowledge the genocide against hutus. The two are not mutually exclusive. Not even close. You can lie about either, but soon or later the truth will come out.

Below is the account of an ongoing effort by Kagame to falsify Rwanda's history:
As negotiations progress on renewing the UN Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO) - including the mandate of the intervention brigade - 'Another issue revolves around the language used to describe the genocide that took place in Rwanda in 1994. During the negotiations on resolution 2136, adopted 30 January 2014, Rwanda suggested adding in a paragraph on the operations of the FDLR that the rebel group includes perpetrators of “the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda”. It seems the US suggested adding language on other victims, and the resolution as adopted referred to the “perpetrators of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda, during which Hutu and others who opposed the genocide were also killed”. The language adopted was a marked change from the more general “genocide in Rwanda” used by the Council over the last two decades to refer to the atrocities that took place in Rwanda. Rwanda would like this recently agreed to language to be used in the MONUSCO draft resolution, while several other Council members prefer to retain “genocide in Rwanda”. At press time there were ongoing discussions to try and resolve this issue.

Looking ahead, how this issue is resolved may impact language in a draft resolution being planned for a debate on genocide to be held next month when Nigeria presides over the Security Council. Rwanda recently circulated a draft resolution to commemorate the “1994 genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda” to Council members, which stressed the importance of the prevention of genocide, the responsibility to protect and justice mechanisms such as the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda. Negotiations on the draft resolution are expected to commence in early April.'
Let us make sure Paul Kagame's regime fails again; let's make sure the truth prevails.
