RNC terror organization mouthpiece David Himbara is jubilating; one of his ploys to lure a gullible has yielded results. Paid to smear Rwanda by Museveni and Rujugiro, Himbara aka Murunganwa is very pleased that gullible Yvonne Idamange has been convicted of crimes in Rwanda and sentenced to 15 years in prison.
Himbara picked interest in Idamage when she began to utter fake news, hate speech and call for violent upheaval on YouTube. She falsely proclaimed the President of the Republic dead, called for public uprising, as well as for the denigration of genocide commemoration artifacts among other crimes and misdemeanors. Her crimes were blatant and those who encouraged her only wanted to weaponize against Rwanda the obvious legal troubles that she would find herself in.
Murunganwa couldn’t wait for Idamange to be convicted of her crimes, as it was another juicy opportunity to smear Rwanda with fake stories of “stifling free speech”, “human rights” and other made up lies to please his paymasters.
But in no jurisdiction, worldwide, is the propagation of false news legal. Such rumormongering becomes even more criminal when the intent is to spark social unrest and public disorder. On YouTube and social media, speech is regulated with a clear distinctions between free speech and criminal incitation. In one of the most infamous case, Hassan Ngeze was convicted for crimes of genocide, “direct and public incitement to commit genocide” amongst others by the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda.
Idamange’s utterances on YouTube were similar to Hassan Ngeze’s on RTLM.
So the law dealt with her.
Murunganwa is so shameless to be inciting gullibles to commit serious crimes, yet after they are behind bars he won’t send them even one coin.
