Rwanda: Is it Denver Dictatorship Conference?

Vincent does not understand why Rwandan president Paul Kagame is invited to Denver Leadership Conference: “Paul Kagame is responsable, according to several UN reports, of plundering the congo, supporting armed rebels inside the Congo, crimes against humanity and possibly genocide on an immensely large scale.”

    Vincent, all the accusations against President Kagame are simply hearesay advanced by his detractors and cannot thus be taken seriously. President Kagame has been fighting against injustice for most of his life. Together with President Museveni and other colleagues, they liberated Uganda from Obote’s fascist regime and together with other colleagues, he was able to stop genocide in Rwanda and to pursue the perpetrators and to liberate Congo from Mubutu’s kleptocracy. President Kagame was among the first leaders that sent forces to Darfur to protect civilians. President kagame has reconciled Rwandans, built schools and hospitals, thereby curbing infant mortality rate and maternal mortality rate. Surely how can detractors turn around and falsely accuse genocide a man who pursues and achieves noble goals as already stated. All those accusations are false and will eventually become irrelevant as more and more people get know the truth.

    musabe(assassinated in Cameroon)kayumba Nyamwasa to name only few….
    had families .(luckily Nyamwasa survived kagame’s first attemp to end his life)
    such hurtful comments serve only to cause further psychological damages.
    you should probably make them in kagame’s backyard well,as you prove to be his praise singer.you are entitled to your own political ideologies though.
    or were you informing bereaved spanish families that kagame is compansating the blood of their people or families of twelve innocent american tourists….
    kagame and Museveni are heroes but unfortunately only to you and probably
    you family members…..but the worl knows he is far from being a global terrorist
    in the kind of Osama Bin Laden, but a serial bloodythisty vampire whose day is due.
    Those myth of hospitals and development please give us abreak.
    The third Reich or apartheid regimes were developed but the world know
    how they treated people.
