BBC has a double-faced reputation

Editor,

Reference is made to Arthur Asiimwe’s article, “Instead of being bullish, the BBC should eat humble pie” (The New Times, April 22).

The callousness, sheer lack of respect of laws, social conventions and simple gentility are glaring in the BBC's handling of this case. However, as the fall from grace of the former host of top gear has shown, what goes around comes around.

This crass, racist, uncouth presenter, who had exhibited the same traits his employers have at an organisational level, was recently sacked for physically abusing other members of staff of the same BBC. Let them fall on their own sword.

The greatest trick the BBC ever pulled was to convince people that it operated on any values, let alone those of fairness, accuracy and impartiality. It has for a long time been milking that fabricated reputation for all it is worth to frog off its own agenda and those of its senior executives.

The good thing is that Rwandans know the difference between the advertised brand BBC and the underlying sordid reality.

The BBC has clearly proved to the world that it’s an official mouthpiece of deniers of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda and the enemies of Rwanda.

Despite the turning point of producing and broadcasting the infamous documentary, their agenda has been going on for long in their usual programmes such as Imvo n'Imvano. Now that Rwandans know what they want, let us fight the BBC just like any other enemy.
