A new organisation has been recently created to raise awareness globally about the fate of the Rwandan politician Victoire Umuhoza Ingabire and other prisoners of conscience in Rwanda.

To find out more about that organisation – Friends of Victoire [FoV] please click here.

You can read this among other things on the site of the organization:

“The symbol of women selflessness, honesty and determination – Victoire Ingabire is a woman of exceptional courage. She has distinguished herself by her leadership, her spirit of selflessness which transcends her other interests, for her family, her career.

Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza took upon her shoulders the destiny of her people and of her nation when she decided to confront the oppression prevailing in her country of origin, in the hope of providing an alternative to the Rwandan people with democratic governance and a lasting peace.

She is imprisoned in Rwanda since October 14, 2010 and sentenced to 15 years in jail for daring to express different opinion from those in power.”
