Editor,

Reference is made to Awel Uwihanganye’s “Why Rwanda can ignore the BBC documentary but Africa should not” (The New Times, December 24).

What puzzles me is the degree of arrogance to-date some western organisations feel, thinking that they did a great job.

Some of these western imperialists’ rascals are old and backward to the extent they do some things in the name of democracy, but in real sense displaying the true colors criminality of the highest caliber like refusing to respect a visiting heads of state.

That documentary surely is terrible that Africa should never forget.

****************

Everyone knows how those documentary makers intended to distort and tarnish the good image of Rwanda. Western media usually do this to Africa or to any other country they consider weak.

Rwandans stood together and condemned the BBC film, but we want all Africans to do the same because what happened in Rwanda (the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi) can happen elsewhere.

Together, we can win those who want to undermine Africa and African values.
