The newly established Political Party (Partie Sociale IMBERAKURI) is reportedly embroiled in wrangles after its Secretary General Noel Hakizimfura broke away with few other senior party members protesting the leadership of the current party head, Bernard Ntaganda.
In a press release, Hakizimfura, accused Ntaganda of divisionism and changing the party’s strategy towards his own interest.
“Since July 22 when the party was accepted by government, I have been having this urge to reveal anomalies in this party, particularly the leader, Ntaganda,” Hakizimfura said in a press release.
“Ntaganda has divisionism bent on tribal, religious and regional grounds,” Hakizimfura, who has since been expelled from the party, is quoted in the release as saying.
He alleges that Ntaganda’s character changed when he came back from abroad where he reportedly met Victoire Ingabire, Deo Mushayidi and Boniface Hitimana, all known for their hate campaign against the Rwandan Government.
Ntaganda reportedly signed an agreement with the above individuals to prepare for the 2010 presidential elections.
Several other threats and administrative irregularities were also highlighted in the press release which caused Hakizimfura and colleagues to break away from the party.
However, when contacted, Ntaganda said that Hakizimfura was suspended from their party on accusations of poor administration and spreading malicious propaganda aimed at destroying the party.
He however declined to reveal details of the accusations.
