This is an illustration of Paul Kagame’s criminal hands that investor Howard Buffet, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, and other lobby groups have been avoiding to consider in their advocacy for the Rwandan dictator so their business interests continue to flourish in the region, at the expense of millions of Congolese, hundreds of thousands of raped women, Rwandans, and others, for almost 20 years now.

The author of this note read Patrick Mbeko’s reflection also posted on this blog on how the latter understands the problem that Africans who consider the West as their savior have.
