Things have changed. The arrogance of the recent past is apparently giving room to signs that tell that the end of the Kagame’s regime is not far away.
Surprisingly, in the two last years or so, and most significantly during the last three to five months, the Rwandan president has resorted to criminal tactics that presuppose despair.
He has attacked the Rwandan youth, silencing it through the trial of singer Kizito Mihigo. The latter is today imprisoned for having called for true reconciliation between all Rwandans using a song. Kagame is screaming loudly that he will shot people in broad daylight.
The Rwandan regime is burning down public and private buildings (prisons, businesses, etc – 20 cases have been publicly reported) where lives and properties are being lost deliberately. Officially the regime is giving false motives to those incidents occurring almost across the whole country.
Rwandan activist Bosco Mutarambirwa has this to say on his facebook page about the burning of Rwandan public and private property:
“Rwanda: According to this story (https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=629176803289&id=80800621), looks like tons of prisoners have perished in the two prisons that were recently set on fire in a single month.
The rest of fires in quartier Matheus and Nyabugogo bus station are meant to (1) serve as a distraction from the prisons fire massacres, (2) free some badly needed land in the heart of Kigali for Crystal venture builders (Remember Emperor Nero and his fires? http://fb.me/3cKJIKoM2), (3) deprive owners of burned buildings and force their current tenants into leasing space in Crystal venture’s new skyscrapers, and (4) create business for RPF importers of fire extinction equipment… a bill was voted on recently requiring everyone to equip their buildings with fire extinguishers.”
Is the Rwandan president willing to sacrifice some of his achievements if he sees that political power is sleeping away from his hands? Looking at the burning prisons, business buildings etc, one would wonder if this is not one of the reasons that the Kagame’s regime is again resorting to chaos, possibly to make him think that he should always be the man to rule over Rwandans.
