Of Fake Survivors and their Genocide Denialism Agenda

Standard

By Jean Kayigamba

This painful three-month period of national life is a time when we, Rwandans and friends of Rwanda remember our loved ones we lost in 1994 to the worst of the genocides of the twentieth century. It is also a time of reflection and taking stock of where we are twenty-six years on. Continue reading

My Nightmares of Kibeho and Beyond

Standard

By: Tom Ndahiro

As a survivor and witness of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda I have many nightmares.

Genocidaire’s Disciples and Their Useful Dupes (Part IV)

Standard

By Tom Ndahiro

Genocide ideologues never cease to create and recreate forums to sustain their toxic isms. The political juggling and tricks packaged as human rights activism and Democratic campaigning, are recycled over and over again. In the planning and execution phases of the genocide and the subsequent denial, metaphoric catchphrases are liberally employed.

A majority among the non-Rwandan category served the genocidal regimes; others are trapped by ignorance or relationships—of family or friendship. Continue reading

Charles Kambanda Should Not Be Accorded Academic License To Spread His Anti-Tutsi Genocide Ideology

Standard

By: Tom Ndahiro

Professor Charles Kambanda wears professorial robes, vestments conferred on him by others. There is however a question for his students and the dons of St. John’s University in New York City (NYC): Does his intellect fit his academic vestments? The same question goes to the New York State Bar Association, if he belongs to it. Do St. John’s students and teaching staff deserve a full-fledged genocide ideologue in their midst? Continue reading
