The shocking revelations from the United States confidential diplomatic cables, which were leaked by whistle-blowing website, Wikileaks, that the retired French Judge, Bruguière consulted the Government of France, including President Chirac, on the timing and fallout of his issuance of arrest warrants against top RPF officials, was not only an embarrassment to France but also an exposure of Bruguière’s ill intentions against our leaders.
But, news from Wikileaks is not surprising to Rwandans. Since 2006, when Bruguière issued his controversial indictments against nine former senior officials in the Rwanda Patriotic Army, anybody who follows Rwanda’s politics closely concluded that the report was politically motivated and highly concocted.
But Bruguière is not the first person to tell blatant lies about our government. Some critics are actually Rwandans who leave the country after committing various crimes but later turn up, portraying themselves as persecuted.
I think Rwanda has achieved a lot and any right thinking member of society will agree with me.
