In a 29th January, 2010 article, a certain Chris Nzabandora, an FDU-Inkingi party member, could find no stronger words against The New Times for its publication of opinions and analyses by different patriots exposing the party and its president’s unhidden genocide ideology and revisionist discourses.
To start with, Mr. Nzabandora states that “for the sake of the truth, to the best of my knowledge, Ingabire’s mother is not a fugitive and has nothing to do with the wild allegations levelled against her by the paper.
Mrs. Ingabire’s mother has never been summoned to any hearing and is ready to clean her name…” Mr. Nzabandora chooses to, as an individual and by a stroke of a pen, dismiss the firm revelations by the Executive Secretary of Gacaca jurisdictions who confirmed in the same paper that Ms.
Theresa Dusabe, mother to Ms Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza, was years ago indeed judged and condemned by the Butamwa Gacaca court to life imprisonment over her infamous role in the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in a health center she was heading at Butamwa in the suburbs of Kigali.
And as Mr. Nzabandora seems to be in contact with Ingabire’s mother as he claims “her readiness to clean her name”, he should urge her to do exactly that, at least for the sake of her daughter’s presidential ambitions.
Although we agree that any crime is the responsibility of each individual and that Ingabire should not suffer from her parents’ criminal records, for a would be presidential candidate, such a background is not in the least an additional advantage, more so considering her own revisionist rhetoric and her hate for the Rwandan justice and Gacaca in particular, which her own mother has not escaped.
I am tempted to believe as she has alluded to when meeting Genocide convicts, that her ambition for the high office in the land and boundless love for Genocide convicts is related to a dire need to cleanse all those that committed Genocide, obviously starting with her mother.
As if to exonerate Ingabire of her recurrent criticism of Gacaca, Mr Nzabandora tells us that “the statement of Ingabire on Gacaca reflects the party’s position, not her own feelings…” Even if this was true, which is not, it makes things even worse! Well, we are not surprised as we already know what the party stands for and it is rather difficult to convince anyone that she might possess any “different feelings other than those that spring from the infamous RDR which Rwandans of today clearly know.”
Mr. Nzabandora goes on to dismiss the United Nations Group of Experts report especially where it clearly and with evidence links Ms Ingabire and her FDU party to the FDLR terrorists as “nothing but hearsays.”
He distorts the facts saying that “the Experts based their allegations on a meeting that took place in Barcelona and to which FDLR was invited…” Let us take this opportunity to enlighten the TNT readers from Canada who may want to know about the Group of Experts’ findings while also exposing the Barcelona meeting’s shroud agenda.
The report states that the Group established through evidence-based information that “…individuals affiliated with the Catholic Church and other religious and charitable institutions operating within and outside the Democratic Republic of the Congo provide financial and material support to FDLR.
The Group confirmed that Joan Casoliva was listed in 1999 as the president of an organization called Inshuti, which runs a Barcelona-based website posting articles alleging war crimes committed by top officials in the Rwandan Government and military, as well as hosting a link to the FDLR website… and Juan Carrero, another Spanish citizen (he is an eternal Peace Prize Nominee by Ingabire’s RDR political party), who runs the organization Fundació S’Olivar, which is among the sponsors of the prosecution through the Spanish courts of current Rwandan Government and military officials, for their alleged involvement in war crimes and revenge killings committed after the Rwandan genocide…”
The Group further revealed that it is in possession of “…documents showing that Fundacio S’Olivar received 198.000 Euros between 2001 and 2008 from the Fons Mallorqui de Solidarita I Coopracio, a trust established by various mayoral offices in the Isles Baleares, in order to sustain the prosecution of officials of the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) through the Spanish Courts…”
On 23 November, 2009, this same Juan Carrero tried to dismiss the Group of Experts’ accusations by invoking some international conspiracy theory: “…There is only one Mafia or Mafia Network which is capable of doing all this […]: the one which two decades ago set out on its goal to control the huge resources of Central Africa, using the small, but military strong country of Rwanda to achieve this purpose – and to a certain extent, Uganda, as well…The U.N initiated this investigation based on the testimony of witnesses who are part of a known group of professional informers working for the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF)…The wife of the secretary general of the FDU-Inkingi coalition led by Victoire Umuhoza who is running for president of Rwanda in the August 2010 elections, has just been victim of a brutal attack.
Apart from suffering serious injuries, she was poisoned (a common practice by the Tutsi aristocracy and one they have excelled in for centuries…) He concludes that “…Fundacio S’Ollivar is being harassed for playing an active role in the major issues challenging the Rwandan government: 1) The international arrest warrants of 40 alleged major criminals belonging to the top echelons of their government are the outcome of a criminal lawsuit filed by the Forum, which was in turn initiated by the Fundacio, 2) the Intra-Rwandan Dialogue, organized by the network of organizations also headed by our Foundation and 3) Victoire Umuhoza’s candidacy in the August 2010 presidential elections.
The Foundation is one of the few organizations which dare provide support…to a democratic alternative to the totalitarian and criminal government of the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF)…”
This revelation indeed says a lot about the wicked networking that led to the infamous indictments against Rwandan officials, the exact intentions and reasons why they must be treated with the utter contempt they deserve.
Victoire Umuhoza - Juan Carrero, FDU-Inkingi – Fundacio S’Ollivar… one wonders who is running for whom or whether they are not the same thing! They all and I dare say, together with their partners in ideology and crime, the FDLR/INTERAHAMWE, are indeed networking and fighting for the same cause, that cannot for any peace lover and in modern Rwanda be achieved.
Mr. Nzabandora Concludes questioning the New Times about talking of RDR roots of Ms Ingabire and urges that “should the paper have a case with the RDR, it should address itself to its leadership, not to Ms Ingabire as a person, as she is in Rwanda in her capacity as Chairperson of FDU INKINGI, not RDR…” This excuse we shall among other issues deal with in our next issue where we clearly demonstrate the undisputable links between FDU-INKINGI and RDR just as one should never try to differentiate between ALIR, PALIR and now FDLR/INTERAHAMWE.
