Rwanda 2014: 24 years after the Ugandan invasion

KPFA Evening News, broadcast 04.13.2014

Twenty-four years after the Ugandan invasion of Rwanda in October 1990, both the history of the four year war that followed, and realities of life on the ground in Rwanda today are fiercely disputed. Claude Gatebuke survived the violence and founded the African Great Lakes Action Network (AGLAN) to promote truth and reconciliation in Rwanda and the rest of the Great Lakes Region of Africa.

Rwandan political prisoner Bernard Ntaganda in peril

Rwanda's P.S.-Imberakuri Party leader Bernard Ntaganda tried to run for president against sitting Rwandan President Paul Kagame, as did FDU-Inkingi Party leader Victoire Ingabire, in 2010. Neither were allowed to run, and instead, both were imprisoned and have been since. Bernard Ntaganda is now in perilous condition after going on hunger strike against torture and inhumane conditions in Rwanda's Mpanga Prison, also knowns as Rwanda's Guantanamo. Rwanda has been a close ally and military partner of the U.S. since 1994.

The International Development Committee of British Parliament’s House of Commons has announced that it will examine the controversial decision to disburse budget support to the Government of Rwanda, after first withholding it in response to UN investigators’ reports that Rwanda is behind the M23 militia fighting and seizing territory in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo.
