 Arrest of the Rwandan Holocaust wanted man: his radio station incites people to pick up machetes


Kabuga is a Hutu ethnic group in Rwanda. When the Rwanda massacre broke out in 1994, he was one of the main patrons of the provocative underground radio station, RTLM, and a close friend of President habiyalimana of Rwanda who died in the bizarre 4.6 air crash.

As the territory of the former Belgian King, Rwanda had two major ethnic groups, Hutu and Tutsi before independence. The former had a large population (accounting for more than 80% of the total population of the country), engaged in farming, with darker skin; the latter only accounted for 14% of the total population, engaged in animal husbandry, with slightly white skin.

In 1962, Rwanda became independent, and France replaced Belgium as the most influential western country in Rwanda. On the basis of supporting the self-determination of the majority, France supported the Hutu to control the Rwandan regime for a long time.

Once Hutu, who had been bullied by Tutsi in the colonial era, turned around, their counterattack against Tutsi intensified.

In 1973, after the national defense minister habiyalimana launched a coup, he initially suppressed the Tutsis and forced a large number of Tutsis to exile in neighboring countries. Then, out of political interests, they began to reconcile with the Tutsis.

At the age of 58, kabuga was originally a poor man. Relying on her nepotism with the president, she became the richest man in Rwanda in the late 1980s.

Since April 1993, he has led the way in setting up radio freedom in Rwanda (RTLM), vigorously exaggerating the so-called atrocities of Tutsi and weakness of the president, and instigating the Hutu people to take up the machete to protect their family and property.

Not only that, kabuga, fearing that the incited Hutu people could not find the machete, generously made and imported the machete known as enough to arm 2 / 3 Hutu men, which was distributed to Hutu people free of charge.

On April 6, 1994, habiyalimana, who ended the international conference, returned by air. At about 21 oclock that day, he was killed in a strange crash near Kigali, the capital of Rwanda.

The chaos began: kabuga and others immediately manipulated the underground radio station to make waves, and instigated Hutu militia and thugs to kill Tutsi.

From April to July 1990, in a short period of 100 days, as many as 910000 people died, accounting for one ninth of the national population at that time, 91% of them are Tutsis, which is the most appalling humanitarian disaster and genocide after World War II.

In accordance with resolution 955 adopted on November 8, 1994, the United Nations established the Special Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (TPIR) in 1995 to prosecute the promoters and participants of the Holocaust, kabuga among them.

A tough step for France

In this regard, Frances attitude is of great concern.

Since then, Rwandas regime has been controlled by Tutsi, which has also started a long period of settling accounts after autumn with France.

There are many disputes between the two countries. Rwanda broke off diplomatic relations with France in November 2006.

This incident not only set off an unprecedented wave of anti French in Africa, but also prompted Rwanda to abandon its long-standing French and join the Commonwealth, which has not much to do with its own history.

It seems that the French police arrested AGAT habiyalimana, the widow of habiyalimana, who was believed to have a close relationship with the radio incitement in March 2010, in order to ease the tension between the two countries, and revoked the brugie investigation and the arrest warrants for several senior Rwandan officials.

In April 2015, then president Hollande ordered that the Mitterrand archives recording the secret French actions in the Rwanda massacre be opened on the 21st anniversary of the Rwanda massacre, which eased relations between the two countries and restored diplomatic relations.

Nevertheless, because the turquoise group and its patrons are deeply rooted, and because of the colonial patriarchal complex prevailing in the French political circle, the Rwandan massacre has always been difficult to uncover.

This time, France finally gritted its teeth and attacked kabuga, the representative of the turquoise group. It was the most historic action taken so far against the background of making France easily withdraw from African responsibility to reduce the burden of France.

Not enough

But thats not the end of the problem.

To this day, there are still French lawyers, with the support of some behind the scenes forces, trying to solve the Rwanda massacre, and whitewashing the turquoise people, kabuga and other people, putting the responsibility on the Tutsi and the current government of Kagame who were victims at that time.

(function(){( window.slotbydup=window .slotbydup||[]).push({id:u5811557,container:ssp_ 5811557, async:true }African media have said that agate habimana and other more important Turquoise people still stay in Paris well. Kabuga, though infamous, was only a small person who had no public office at that time. If so, we cant even talk about sacrificing soldiers to protect cars, at best, sacrificing soldiers to protect cars. Whats more, even at the pawn level, there is still much to be said: in terms of incitement to Hutu militias and the operation of underground radio stations, there were then known as Trident: Kabuga, Mu Phelan A and bijmana. The other two remain at large. But kabuga, though caught, did not know whether or when he could be sent to the TPIR (International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda) for justice punishment 26 years late. But in any case, the arrest of kabuga represents a big step for Rwanda and France - better late than never.
