Shameless Anonymous Terrorist Mastermind Psycho and their Subordinates

There are different kinds of political crimes, the worst one being political violence against unarmed civilians. It takes a psycho to believe that it is okay to intentionally murder unarmed civilians just so you can stay in power or just so you can remove an existing government. Many of these psychos give orders for unarmed civilians to be killed and yet they are such cowards that they fear publicly claiming responsibility for their actions. They privately celebrate within their inner circle for causing such a loss of life in order to achieve their political goals. It is likely that these psychos are actually not humans, that they are demons who have transformed themselves into the human flesh. Which would explain why they clearly have no conscience.

This anonymous terrorist mastermind psycho has struck again in Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda. On Friday February 19, three grenades went off at 3 public places simultaneously, killing 1 innocent civilian and injuring dozens. The psycho is already achieving their diabolic goals as different sides have started blaming each other, with the likely outcome that there may be more bloodshed or incarceration and torture of innocent suspects. All this may go on while the psycho coward quietly celebrates within their inner circle for getting closer to achieving their political goal.

For his or her lack of a conscience and his or her use of deadly violence against unarmed civilians in order to attain his or her political goals, the anonymous terrorist mastermind psycho is hereby added to the Rwanda Hall of Shame (

The psycho of course is usually too cowardly to physically do the crime themselves. So, they tend to send their subordinates to go out there and do the deed. Time and again, there seems to be enough supply of these subordinates, who are so intellectually challenged that they actually follow these orders by going out and committing those murders.

For their lack of a reasonable human brain, the subordinates of the anonymous terrorist mastermind psycho now join him or her in the Rwanda Hall of Shame.

Below is a press release by the opposition in Rwanda denouncing the recent anonymous acts of deadly political violence in Kigali:


The Permanent Consultative Council of Opposition Parties in Rwanda which brings together, the following political organisations: The United Democratic Forces–Inkingi, The Democratic Green Party of Rwanda, Le Parti Social IMBERAKURI, has learnt with shock and horror about the Grenade blasts which occurred last night 19th Feb 2010 almost simultaneously in three different localities in Kigali.

At the moment three are conflicting reports about the dead and the injured; however the main issue at hand is the lives of innocent and defenceless citizens who are at a serious risk.

These cowardly and wicked acts are meant to instil fear in the population at a crucial time when we are heading for the Presidential elections in a few months to come.

We strongly condemn these barbaric acts in the strongest terms possible and call upon the Rwandan Government, as we have done in recent past to:

1. Investigate and bring to book the perpetrators of these acts

2. Ensure a fair hearing of the suspects once they are apprehended

3. Guarantee security of persons and their property

Issued at Kigali, 20th February 2010

Mrs. Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza
Chairperson, United Democratic Forces

Chairman, Democratic Green Party of Rwanda

Shameless Ngango Rukara and The New Times newspaper

Many Rwandans have a Western first name and a Kinyarwanda last name (family name). But Mr Ngango Rukara's both names are in Kinyarwanda. In general, this would have suggested that this is a patriotic individual, intent on preserving his roots and culture. But reading his article yesterday in The New Times newspaper, well-known to be an RPF government mouthpiece, proves otherwise. Mr Rukara's only goal in life seems to be to perpetuate the RPF political oppression of the Rwandan population by attacking tooth and nail anyone who dares aspire to a better Rwanda, where all Rwandans are treated as human beings as enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

It appears that the only aspect of Rwandan culture and history that Rukara is eager to keep, is the ability to assassinate the character of any non-violent political opposition that presents an alternative path of human rights and justice for all in Rwanda. The average citizen in Rwanda has been oppressed by the RPF regime for many years as evidenced by numerous reports from Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International. The vigour with which Mr Rukara is attacking Mrs Ingabire, a new presidential candidate, obviously proves that Rukara is very happy with the way things are in Rwanda and will use his pen to protect the ruling dictatorial regime at any cost.

The main theme of Mr Rukara's article is that presidential candidate Victoire Umuhoza Ingabire either denies the 1994 genocide or claims that there were 2 genocides. Apparently, after all these years, Rukara still cannot distinguish between a genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity. A month ago, in a previous response to another New Times attack, Mrs Ingabire made it clear that "I would strongly like to set the record straight regarding the genocide against Tutsi in Rwanda. My position is still and has always been that the genocide against Tutsi took place in Rwanda and all criminals should be brought to book." This was after she had been criticized for saying that "For example, we are here honouring at this Memorial the Tutsi victims of the Genocide; there are also Hutu who were victims of crimes against humanity and war crimes, not remembered or honoured here. Hutus are also suffering. They are wondering when their time will come to remember their people. In order for us to get to that desirable reconciliation, we must be fair and compassionate towards every Rwandan’s suffering. It is imperative that for Tutsi survivors, Hutu who killed their relatives understand the crimes they committed and accept the legal consequences. It is also crucial that those who may have killed Hutus understand that they must be equally punished by the laws."

As for accusing Ingabire of being a member of the rebel group FDLR, Rukara is basing himself on the one paragraph below (the only paragraph out of a 58 page UN Group of Experts report):
"The Group confirmed that the FDLR military leaders are also in phone contact with diaspora members of the FDU-Inkingi political party in Belgium, including Jean-Baptiste Mberabahizi, and Naom Mukakinani, who is married to FDU-Inkingi politician Michel Niyibizi. The Group shows below that Victoire Ingabire, the president of FDU who is based in the Netherlands, has attended “Inter Rwandan dialogue” meetings with pro-FDLR participants (see paragraph 114)." (Source: As a champion of political dialogue as a solution to Rwanda's problems, Ingabire has the right to attend conferences where all points of views are represented. That does not automatically mean that she supports the opinions of every single individual who attends at the conference. Implying otherwise, as Mr Rukara does, is simply intellectual dishonesty, which needs to be shunned.

Rukara goes on to deride Ingabire for paying homage to the grave of the late Dominique Mbonyumutwa. He describes the late Mbonyumutwa as "an extremist politician" and one of the "founders of the Genocide ideology in Rwanda." Mbonyumutwa, who served as the first (provisional) President of Rwanda is well known for his work to end the monarchy, a monarchy during which a tiny group of elites had savagely enslaved the Rwandan population for hundreds of years. Somehow, Rukara sees the establishment of a Republic in Rwanda where a leader should be elected by the people instead of appointment by birth as "extremist" and a "Genocide ideology." Two hundred years ago, Rukara's opinion could have been mainstream anywhere in the world. But this twisted logic has no place in the world today.

For Mr Ngango Rukara's obvious disregard for facts and logic in his support for the continued oppression of the Rwandan population, he now joins the growing list of inductees to the Rwanda Hall of Shame.

The New Times' web site claims that its mission is "To help become an exemplary and constructive media house." It is not exemplary and it is not constructive to publish articles whose sole purpose is character assassination of a legitimate non-violent political opposition. There is nothing exemplary or constructive about an attempt to silence the voice of a legitimate peaceful opposition presidential candidate. By publishing such unfounded partisan rant from Mr Rukara without any editorial comment to distinguish fact from fiction, The New Times joins him into the Rwanda Hall of Shame.

Below is the complete article that earned Ngango Rukara and The New Times their (dis)honour of becoming part of the Rwanda Hall of Shame (

Rwanda: The Media Shouldn't Give Succour to Ingabire's Revisionist Rhetoric

By Ngango Rukara

The New Times

19 February 2010

The Media Shouldn’t Give Succour to Ingabire’s Revisionist Rhetoric
Last month, Victoire Ingabire earned herself the most vicious distinction for being the first and only person to publicly espouse a revisionist and Genocide denial position, in relation to the Genocide against the Tutsi, on the Rwandan territory.

Indeed the kind of extremist rhetoric she has been articulating in the last month is nothing new to the Rwandan public. The difference here is that Ingabire is rubbing salt in the wounds of the Genocide survivors, right at the scene of the crime.

On her arrival in Kigali after 16 years of self-imposed exile, the top item on her agenda was an immediate visit to the Gisozi Genocide Memorial Site where, standing on the graves of the victims – 250,000 of them – Victoire Ingabire went on to tell the world that there were two Genocides in Rwanda.

Diabolic as it is, make no mistake about, Ingabire has a fringe constituency, mainly in Europe and North America who subscribe to her revisionist line. However, before Ingabire did it at Gisozi, the revisionist forces had never had a voice in Rwanda or the East African region for that matter.

For the editorial management of a respectable regional publication – The East African – to choose to give space to a known revisionist and Genocide denier, simply boggles the mind. Indeed the newspaper could easily label our observations as sentimental or even emotional. Tell that to the United Nations.

Ingabire’s dossier is much deeper than the editors at Nation Media Group think. Her membership and active role in the upper echelons of FDLR are well documented.

Victoire Ingabire’s name features prominently on United Nation’s list among the top leaders and active fund-raisers of the FDLR, an organization included on the State Department’s list of terrorist groups.

It was only this week that a senior United States legislator recommended the publishing of the names of all FDLR leaders.

Senator Richard Durbin from Illinois, Deputy Senate Majority leader, made the declaration on his visit to Goma in North Kivu, in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Victoire Ingabire is already listed and has been exposed, as member of a terrorist organization FDLR, by none other than the United Nations itself. The question is: Why should a regional publication seek to give succour to such an individual?

The objectives and outcomes of the ideology that FDLR and Ingabire represent are not a remote concept. The Rwandan people, who were at the receiving end some sixteen years ago, still remember as if it happened yesterday.

Indeed, having declared “I do not waver on my genocide ideology” some readers gave her the benefit of the doubt, believing that maybe the quote was an error that Ms Ingabire would rectify.

It’s now coming to a week and we haven’t heard any correction to that effect. Clearly, Ingabire knew what she was talking about and she shouldn’t be second-guessed.

Reports that Ingabire’s interview with The East African was masterminded by some intelligence organizations within the region, with a long history of using journalists as agents and assets, if true, do not augur well for regional stability.

Apart from re-affirming what she describes as her “genocide ideology”, the interview was a joke calculated to introduce Victoire Ingabire to The East African readers.

Her tirades against such national institutions and programmes as Gacaca, unity and reconciliation, as well as gender equality cannot be dignified with a comment, given the fact that they have been recognized the world over, for the critical role they have played in the recovery and subsequent development of the country.

Victoire Ingabire is an individual frozen in time. Ever since she was initiated into the Parmehutu mindset and view society, which evolved into the Genocide ideology in Rwanda, her view of the world has remained static.

Her ideological roots are often betrayed by the kind of language that has characterized her declarations and news releases.

Since her return last month, Ingabire has been communicating to the public through inciting but coded messages, the same language that characterized the founders of the Genocide ideology in Rwanda, including Dominique Mbonyumutwa, one of her ideological ancestors and extremist politician whose grave Ingabire visited to pay homage, soon after she arrived in the country.

And her statements in English and French, vicious as they are, sound much more sanitized compared to her Kinyarwanda versions which are designed to incite the Rwandan public.

For those granting Victoire Ingabire the platform and media channels to articulate her views, her recent interview with The East African where she doesn’t mince her words about her unwavering commitment to her Genocide ideology, should serve as a wakeup call demonstrating that to certain Rwandan politicians, Genocide is an unfinished business.

Shameless Chairman of the National Electoral Commission, Professor Crysologue Karangwa

He spent 7 years as a member of the RPF National Executive Committee. Only last month did he resign from that position. Therefore, his ability to administer fair presidential elections between the RPF and other parties was suspect to begin with. However, as a former Science professor, we were willing to give him the benefit of doubt. We thought that may be this man had the guts to handle the task of ensuring free and fair presidential elections that can pass an independent observer test, despite his 7 years as an RPF Executive.

However, after announcing that candidates will have only 18 days to campaign, Crysologue Karangwa today went on the record saying that "Eighteen days are enough for a serious presidential candidate to cover the country." This by the way is a country that has 30 districts. Basically, with a grueling schedule of one district per day, one would cover only 60 percent of the country.

He went a step further by declaring that "Before the said dates, those planning to declare their candidature should abide by the law and wait. According to the electoral law no political activities are expected before the approval of candidates." The said dates being that Karangwa has decided the earliest a presidential candidate can declare their candidacy for this year's election is 45 days before the election. So, according to him, anyone declaring their candidacy earlier than the 45 days is breaking the rules.

You know that a nation is in trouble when someone such as Crysologue Karangwa carries a title of Professor. Basically, some of the future generation of Rwanda has received their education at a Rwandan university from him. Oh my!

For dishonouring the title of "Professor" by failing to fairly and logically fulfill his duties as Chairman of the National Electoral Commission, "Professor" Crysologue Karangwa becomes a member of the Rwanda Hall of Shame.

Below is the full article containing his absurd declarations:

Rwandan presidential aspirants given 26 days to register, campaign

By Modou APA-Kigali

February 19, 2010

Aspirants for the forthcoming presidential polls in Rwanda have been given 26 days to declare their candidature and carry out campaigns before the polls day on August 9, APA has learnt.

According to the electoral calendar made public Thursday evening, presidential candidates are supposed to declare their candidature between June 24 and July 2 while campaigns will officially begin July 20 to August 8.

Registration and approval of candidates was given 8 days while the act of campaigning was strictly allocated 18 days.

The Chairman of the National Electoral Commission, Professor Crysologue Karangwa told APA Friday that the eighteen days were enough for a serious presidential aspirant to go around the country of thirty districts campaigning.

"Eighteen days are enough for a serious presidential candidate to cover the country, we do not expect them to visit every village or district in the country by themselves, they have supporters who should help in campaigns," Karangwa said.

In the remaining less than four months those wishing to stand for presidency were advised to keep it to themselves as in accordance to the law.

"Before the said dates, those planning to declare their candidature should abide by the law and wait. According to the electoral law no political activities are expected before the approval of candidates," Karangwa said.

This will be the second presidential election to be held after an eight-year provisional government that ran from 1995 to 2003 walking the country out of the political crisis triggered by 1994 genocide.

The first presidential elections were held in 2003 seeing the incumbent President Paul Kagame in power.

Rwandan constitution allows a presidential term of seven years with the incumbent expected to serve not more than two terms.

The electoral calendar was announced at a time when the constitution is under amendments where a clause on presidential elections is to be amended.

The clause says any one aspiring to be presidential candidate is expected to be in the country by the time of declaration of their candidature.

Karangwa said Rwandan government will foot 60% of the over 10 million dollar electoral budget, the remaining 40% is expected from the national budget and international community based on bilateral relations of the donor countries.

Shameless Mayor Ndizeye K. Willy

Mr Ndizeye gets the (dis)honour of becoming the first Rwandan official to be part of the Rwanda Hall of Shame. In a letter explaining why the Green Party in Rwanda cannot convene, which means the party cannot become a registered party, one of the two reasons given by Mr Ndizeye was:

"As far as the Presence of the Public Notary from Gasabo District is concerned, I regret to inform you that she is on maternity leave."

Ndizeye is not worthy of the title of Mayor. How is it possible that this so-called Mayor cannot understand how unintelligent this excuse is? Really? He really has the audacity to say that one of the two reasons why a political party cannot be registered is because someone who works for the district is on maternity leave? Really? The quality of these RPF games is becoming lower and lower each day. It would really be quite laughable except that people's lives, real people's lives, are at stake here.

The entire letter that earned Mr Ndizeye his place in the Rwanda Hall of Shame is below:

Gasabo District
Done on 10th Feb 2010
Ref.No. 315/07.0102/

To: Mr. Frank Habineza
Re: Your Request for Permission

Dear Sir,

In reference to your letter dated 2nd Feb 2010 in which you requested permission to hold the inaugural congress of the Democratic Green Party of Rwanda at CASABONITA-Kimironko on 12th March 2010 and requested the presence of the Public Notary to witness the signing of the official documents.

I would like to draw your attention to our earlier letter written to you, Ref No. 2985/07.0102/2009 of 6th November 2009. In said letter we requested you to give us police clearance indicating that the conflict that occurred during your meeting held at St. Paul on 30th October 2009 had been resolved.

Once again we would like to request you indicate to us how the conflict that occurred at St. Paul was resolved by the police since it is the National Police that intervened and solved the problem. This will give us assurance that the problems that occurred in Nyarugenge District will not happen again in Gasabo District.

As far as the Presence of the Public Notary from Gasabo District is concerned, I regret to inform you that she is on maternity leave.

Wishing you peace and good work,


(Signed and stamped)

Mayor of Gasabo District


- Minister of Local Government
- Mayor of Kigali City Council
- Commissioner General of Police
