Maybe this Delegation of European Union to Rwanda should be reminded of their missionaries of yesteryear whose sole mission in Rwanda was to create hierarchical divisions and labeling that would eventually set in motion the vehicle that drove the nation into chaos.

Maybe this Delegation of European Union to Rwanda should be reminded of their missionaries of yesteryear whose sole mission in Rwanda was to create hierarchical divisions and labeling that would eventually set in motion the vehicle that drove the nation into chaos.

 

What an arrogant statement to make by claiming to set the standards “upon which the world shall be judged upon”? And why do we as Africans keep letting and allowing such disrespect to continue?
