France-based cabals of fugitives and deniers of the 1994 Genocide against Tutsi are increasingly experiencing sleepless nights and nightmares following Rwanda and France’s political courage and sincerity to keep the historical records of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi alive forevermore.
The International Colloquium on research about the 1994 Genocide against Tutsi – that was held at Kigali Genocide Memorial yesterday as a result of the flourishing page of a new chapter in Rwanda-France relations, is one of the developments that drove those unrepentant criminals in a frenzy of rage in their respective dens in the European country.
The symposium, held under the theme ‘knowledge, sources and resources on the Genocide perpetrated against the Tutsi, was organized by the Ministry of National Unity and Civic Engagement (MINUBUMWE), University of Rwanda, and French historian Vincent Duclert.
The academic conference convened a year after the French President, Emmanuel Macron, sought the forgiveness of the genocide survivors for what he admitted was his country’s “historical and political responsibility in Rwanda.” The President also pledged to not tolerate a bunch of genocidaires who remain at large in his country anymore.
Macron made the revelation during his historical visit to Rwanda, whereby he visited the Kigali Genocide Memorial – the final resting place for more than 250,000 victims of the Genocide against Tutsi. He has since walked his talk as top genocide masterminds who had been roaming scot-free in France were brought to book.
Those genocidaires include genocide financer Félicien Kabuga and the former Gikongoro Prefect, Laurent Bucyibaruta a.k.a “the butcher of Gikongoro”.
Hitherto, France is home to at least 47 indicted Genocide suspects, including Agathe Kanziga Habyarimana, widow of the genocidal regime tyrant Habyarimana and hundreds of deniers and revisionists who have been hiding in the country for years.
There is hope that all these crooks will meet their fate as the current French government is committed to changing the status quo on the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi, a subject that had been an elephant in the room in the country’s political landscape.
