Australian UN peacekeepers witnessed without intervening the slaughter of more than 4,000 internally displaced hutu refugees by the Rwandan Patriotic Front in Kibeho – Rwanda. This was on April 22nd, 1995.

The Deluge is the title of a film  in preparation by the investigative journalist Keith Harmon Snow. It focuses on the myths and realities of genocide in Central Africa. The producer is looking for financial contributions to finalize the project. To make the public understand more the issues at stake in the film, we have decided to publish scripts of short interviews or extracts of speeches of some identifiable people who are shown in the film. In this fifth note, we have cinq people: Nobel Mbala, former Congolese minister under President Mobutu, Prof. Yan-Lengi Ngemi, author – Genocide in the Congo, Chris Black, attorney – International Crime Tribunal for Rwanda [ICTR], Marianne Bazirawiha, Rwandan Embassy dignitary and genocide survivor, Georges Gittoes, international photojournalist.

Noel Mbala:

Everybody is saying that 8 million [of victims] have been killed in DRC. Half a million of women have been raped but no one is pointing the finger in the right direction. All these things are happening because we have someone called Mr Kagame. He is the only one who is training tutsi militias sending them to the DRC to create instability in the East part of the Congo so he may occupy this part of the Congo.

Professor Yaa-Lengi Ngemi:

Rwanda and Uganda with the support of the United States including weapons and soldiers that worked with them and marched with them all the way to the Congo invaded the Congo. They have been occupying the Congo since 1998. The world is keeping quiet. The world is keeping quiet because the world is participating in this holocaust including the United Nations. And shame on us, on the world, shame on every human being who has some kind of power to stop this and is not stopping this, beginning with the superpower – the United States. Shame on us!

Chris Black:

A letter written by Paul Kagame to a man named Bagaza who is a tutsi and had been president of Burundi saying that he had just had a conversation with his brother Museveni president of Uganda and that the plans for Zaire had to be put on hold for a little while because of the problem of Hutu refugees in the Congo was impeding. They were in their way.

Marianne Baziruwiha:

So we were in a meeting, State Department meeting, where the decisions had beem made to declare a war against those refugees.

Georges Gittoes:

There was this girl who was riddled with bullet wounds, who shouldn’t have been walking… she was just all shot up. And she came to me like a ghost and she just put a hand out to me and she said: “you are not going anywhere,” and I wasn’t going anywhere because myself I could’ve been cut by bullets. And she went back and got her little sisters and her mother, an old woman. And like a gag she kept being hit by more bullets but none of them did. She sat them around me. And she put her head down on my chest. She was all hot. And then in a few seconds she was cold and she died. And that was the bravest act of courage I have ever seen in my whole life. And that girl had not done anything. She couldn’t be possibly part of any genocide massacres.
