Documentary: Victoire Ingabire vs Paul Kagame

This documentary video on Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza shows how Rwandan government always reacted disproportionately and desperately against her and other people or organisations who slightly disagree with its policies. The video also documents how the government uses any means to silence any voice that talks about the RPF Crimes committed on the Rwandan people.

“The Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) should not shy away from free political competition after holding power for 16 years, especially since it claims having achieved National Unity and Reconciliation and having brought about an unprecedented economic development.”

Victoire Ingabire’s reconciliation speech that the government uses to send her to jail can be read here.

She refused to submit to the only one-sided orthodoxy permitted by Kagame’s regime. This is something that is still taboo in the country today. Mentioning that RPF leadership commandeered atrocities is a crime that could get you sentenced to more than 25 years of imprisonment under the country’s “genocide ideology” laws. For this, many compare Victoire Ingabire to the American activist, Rosa Louise McCauley Parks whose act of defiance to segregation laws became an important symbol of the modern Civil Rights Movement and an international icon of resistance to racial segregation.
