The Vatican should apologise

Dear editor,
The Vatican should establish the truth about the Catholic Church’s role in the 1994 Genocide of the Tutsis and this should not be ignored.

The church’s leadership should be strong enough to face the challenge of telling exactly what happened in their churches among their congregation in 1994 if they really mean and understand what they say in the repentant prayer that opens the Holy Mass.

I am of the view that the Vatican has accepted to be misled by the same people who participated in the Genocide.

They say there was a double Genocide but sincerely had the Tutsis had the same means to fight back they wouldn’t have been killed in such big numbers.

The Catholic Church played an active role in Rwanda’s politics right from the colonial times, at independence and organising the killings of Tutsis in 1953; 1959; 1973 and in 1994 when they were tormented and killed in big numbers.

The same people who oversaw the killing of the Tutsi continue to torment them by denying them to join the priesthood telling the Vatican that they are either traumatised or not fit, while those still there are forced to abandon the vocation.

This kind of treatment by the Catholic Church leadership is unacceptable! Otherwise I would be forced to think that their minds are no different from the mind of the devil himself!
