Genocidaires will hide but won’t evade justice forever. This Wednesday, in the Norwegian capital of Oslo, a genocide perpetrator (yet to be named) was arrested for his role in the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi. The criminal is set to be extradited to Rwanda as confirmed by Norway’s National Criminal Investigation Service spokesperson- Thea Elise Kjæraas.
The new development left genocide fugitives cabal shuddering from their hideouts waiting for the same fate. This happens amidst intensified campaigns to deny and belittle the genocide against Tutsi led by genocidaires, their dependents and sympathizers. Those rogue agents include Marcel Sebatware and Charles Ndereyehe, the FDU-Inkingi trolls like Theophile Mpozembizi, Pierre Celestin Rwalinda, Denise Zaneza, Ruhumuliza Mbonyumutwa from Jambo Asbl among others who have been relentlessly pushing the genocide denial agenda in attempt to conceal their parents’ genocide crimes; however the world will not forget them.
The latest arrest and the ongoing trial of Felicien Kabuga, the chief financier and one of the masterminds of the genocide against Tutsi are a testament that the perpetrators will face the music and justice will be served to the victims.
Rwandan government’s call to have genocide perpetrators brought to book has yielded positive results. France renewed its committed to have all genocide fugitives extradited for trial in Rwanda. They include “Col” Aloys Ntiwiragabo, Priest Marcel Hitayezu, Agathe Kanziga Habyarimana-widow of the genocidal regime ruler Juvenal Habyarimana. Kanziga is a treacherous woman who also doubled as a member of his husband’s inner circle “Akazu”, a small group of Hutu elites that orchestrated the genocide against Tutsi.
The ongoing efforts to arrest genocide fugitives bring hope to genocide survivors that their killers will face justice. Be soon or late, it is just a matter of time; they will pay for their horrendous crimes.
