Are U.N. peacekeeping operations causing more instability than they are resolving in Africa?

January 6, 2014

One may reasonably argue that Rwanda, Uganda and any of those poor African countries contributing U.N. peacekeepers have no interest in peace around the continent. Based on the current financing structure of U.N. peacekeeping operations, these poor countries have a lot of financial incentives to create instability within Africa so that they can send in their “peacekeeping” troops and make some much needed cash.

Kampala ‘declaration’ would contract DRC to concede to M23 (with French translation)

December 11, 2013

At the end of November, headlines around the world announced the Congolese Army’s defeat of the M23 militia, with the help of U.N. intervention forces. Since that time, the Democratic Republic of the Congo has been under pressure from Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni and his so-called mediators, and from US Envoy Russ Feingold and U.N. Envoy Mary Robinson, to sign an agreement with M23.

Letter to my Rwandan, Ugandan and Congolese brothers and sisters celebrating M23’s defeat

November 10, 2013

Rwanda’s M23 has finally been defeated in DR Congo, but what are we to make of DR Congo negotiating with M23, not Rwanda’s Kagame and Uganda’s Museveni? M23 was commanded by Rwanda’s top military officers and officials, but its collaboration with Uganda is clear to anyone who gives the Great Lakes Region any attention, as is Rwanda and Uganda’s collaboration with the Western powers.

Congo, AFRICOM and the U.S. Corporate Council on Africa

December 12, 2012

The deadly conflict in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo continues, as leaders of Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Rwandan and Ugandan M23 militia fighting in Congo gather in Uganda’s capital for peace talks, which members of the Congolese political opposition are boycotting.

Implicated in Congo crimes, Rwanda’s Gen. Kagame has bigger headache than silencing Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza, opposition chief

October 30, 2012

The sham treason trial of Rwanda’s top opposition leader, Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza, has finally ended with her expected conviction. The U.S., which recently cut aid to Rwanda for its role in Congo atrocities, must call for Umuhoza’s release. She has been sentenced to eight years in prison by a kangaroo court. Her conviction by the kangaroo court must be set aside.

Obama could end Congo’s human catastrophe

June 7, 2012

The Congo conflict and human catastrophe has continued despite a 2003 peace treaty. It entered a new phase with the Rwandan backed CNDP rebellion in the Kivu Provinces in April 2012. Ugandan reporter, television producer and broadcaster Paul Ndiho told KPFA that everyone knows who is doing what in Congo, but that regional and international powers are unwilling to stop it.

Kabila, Tshisekedi, Congo and the International Criminal Court

December 7, 2011

If the International Criminal Court and ICC Chief Prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo were committed to international justice, they would issue an arrest warrant for sitting Congolese President Joseph Kabila. But the Western powers that control the ICC have been expected to do whatever it takes to keep Kabila in power.

Rwanda Genocide survivor: My mother and I were ordered to dig our own graves

December 4, 2011

They had machetes and guns and all kinds of weapons and they ordered us to dig our own graves. Two young men came and negotiated for us; they wouldn’t give up until the militia just got tired of negotiating and left us alone and let us go. I was 14. I felt like I was going to get chopped up into pieces. I felt like I was going to be one of those people screaming for help with no hope of getting help. But good people came to our rescue. The truth will be turned on its head by having Paul Kagame, a genocide perpetrator, speak about genocide denial and genocide prevention.

KPFA Weekend News on Uganda, Rwanda and Uganda’s Feb. 18 election

February 15, 2011

One of Uganda’s three leading opposition presidential candidates and others predict that Uganda could become the next Egypt or Tunisia after Friday’s presidential and parliamentary elections, which few expect to be free or fair.

Museveni regime denies Kato’s murder was homophobic

January 29, 2011

How can Ugandan Deputy Police Spokesperson Vincent Sekate, before doing an investigation, be so sure that David Kato’s murder had nothing to do with his being openly gay or with his work as advocacy officer for Sexual Minorities Uganda? And why does the U.S. keep throwing money and weaponry behind the regime that Sekate speaks for?

U.S. backed the invasion of Eastern Congo on Obama’s inauguration day

January 25, 2011

Instead of the racist story about Hutus killing Tusis with machetes in 100 days of genocide, the truth is that the U.S., British and Israeli military and their Ugandan and Rwandan proxy forces are responsible for genocide against both Tutsis and Hutus in Rwanda, Congo and Burundi.

Children in armed conflict: Olara Otunnu speaks to KPFA and Afrobeat Radio

January 7, 2011

Much of the world focuses on family and creating safe and loving environments for children during the holidays, but many of the world’s children suffer extreme deprivation and abuse of their human rights. Acholi children living in an internally displaced persons (IDP) camp in Kitgum, Northern Uganda, “think that a refugee camp is home.”

Obama take heed: French judge files charges against Kagame allies

December 27, 2010

On Dec. 15, a French judge filed preliminary charges against six people close to Rwandan President Paul Kagame for the 1994 assassination of the Rwandan and Burundian presidents that triggered the Rwanda Genocide. When will Obama take heed of these new French charges? How much longer will the U.S. back the regime sued on two continents and in three countries?

Bill Clinton, the genocider who just might get away

November 3, 2010

Bill Clinton is the one who established the stranglehold that the murderous gang of Gen. Kagame of Rwanda and Yoweri Museveni of Uganda have on the people of central Africa. As millions of civilians were being butchered, Clinton doubled his support for these murderers.

Need to examine U.S. complicity in Africa Genocide

October 15, 2010

With respect to the United Nations Report officially released Oct. 1, regarding genocide against Hutus in the Congo, I think that the language used is much less important than the killing of 6 million or more and the illegal extraction of resources from the eastern Congo.

The Rwandan Patriotic Front’s bloody record and the history of U.N. cover-ups

September 15, 2010

The leaked U.N. report to be officially released Oct. 1 is not the first such report to have been drafted by the U.N. – nor is it the first one to be covered up. On Oct. 11, 1994, Robert Gersony of USAID reported that Kagame’s RPF army had been committing systematic massacres of the Hutu population in Rwanda starting in April 1994.

Outsourcing a U.S. war: Ugandans in Iraq

August 24, 2010

Last week the Pentagon proclaimed that the last U.S. combat forces had left Iraq. The U.S. has long outsourced the Iraq occupation to troops from some of the world’s poor nations, and many of the mercenaries due to replace other U.S. troops will also come from those countries, especially from Uganda.

A critique of ‘Rwanda: The Two Faces of Paul Kagame’ by Jon Rosen

May 28, 2010

Rosen glosses over the damning case against Kagame – in the same way he ignores most Kagame critics. He fails to mention that right now Kagame’s regime is shutting down newspapers, is kidnapping the homeless and is demonizing and pronouncing Victoire Ingabire guilty. And hours ago in Rwanda, Kagame arrested eminent American law professor, Peter Erlinder.

Congolese women offer prescriptions for ending sexual violence in Congo

April 17, 2010

Congolese women are telling world leaders, “Listen to the Congolese for a change. We CAN bring an end to the geo-strategic resource war in the Congo.” Come hear Kambale Musavuli, the dynamic young Congolese leader who travels the U.S. breaking the silence about that war that has taken 6 million lives. He’s speaking Sunday, April 18, 6:30 p.m., at the Black Dot Cafe, 1195 Pine St., West Oakland.

December 13, 2009

With the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) engulfed in bloodshed and terrorism due to the secretive occupation and expansion by the Rwandan regime of Paul Kagame, Congo’s President Joseph Kabila has reportedly requested an immediate emergency military intervention from Belgium to crush a growing rebellion sparked by resistance forces in the far Western Congo.
