The Diaspora will need to live up to their expectations

Editor, There is a raging debate over what the members of Diaspora should do regarding the inaccurate and negative information portrayed about Rwanda. Personally, I feel the debate has been prolonged unnecessarily because Rwandans in Diaspora should not be told even what to do since they know the reality on the ground.

Editor,

There is a raging debate over what the members of Diaspora should do regarding the inaccurate and negative information portrayed about Rwanda.

Personally, I feel the debate has been prolonged unnecessarily because Rwandans in Diaspora should not be told even what to do since they know the reality on the ground.

They have been to Rwanda and have seen, in their own words, the changes that have taken place since the 1994 Genocide against Tutsi. They have also heard or read unsubstantiated reports peddled by Rwanda’s detractors.

So, they don’t need to be told what to do. Though Rwanda is a country tolerant to positive criticism, there are some malicious reports which cannot be taken lightly. It’s sad especially, when people who committed genocide become the leading critics of the government.

So, it is the duty of Rwandans living in the Diaspora to always challenge the inaccurate and negative information about Rwanda without being reminded to do so.
