RE: “No amount of manipulation will make Rwanda bend” (The New Times, August 12).
Even more hilarious, it seems the self-acclaimed ‘masters of the universe’ geniuses never seem to get it, inspite of coming a cropper for their nth time: The moment they attack our President for imagined faults — and through him all of us Rwandans — the even closer and more united around him we become.
It seems they are so clueless they can never understand the unbreakable bond we, the people of Rwanda, have with our President and our hero, Paul Kagame, to whom we owe our very survival as a people, when all these pretentious lesson-givers and their governments had forsaken us as not being worthy to save from genocide one of theirs was actively abetting.
Let them give us peace. Their lectures simply grate on our nerves.
The western media is all about the dollar. Nice stories don’t grab headlines or sell. A journalist, even the locals, looks for a juicy story. Other than that, there is nothing much else to report about from our shores.
However, it serves no purpose to constantly lash out at ‘western enemies’. To know you have someone’s attention is how they react. The best thing is to ignore them. And I am not sure they are serving ‘their masters’ either. They are simply outdoing each other for ratings, influence and ultimately the revenues.
