Les rebelles hutu rwandais continuent à semer la terreur dans l'est du Congo.
Les rebelles hutu rwandais des Forces démocratiques de libération du Rwanda (FDLR) continuent à semer la terreur dans l'est de la République démocratique du Congo malgré leur annonce de vouloir mettre fin à la lutte armée, a dénoncé mercredi la Mission de l'ONU (Monusco).

Les FDLR "continuent d'imposer des travaux forcés aux populations locales, les harcèlent, les battent et les torturent", a indiqué le porte-parole militaire de la Monusco, le lieutenant-colonel Félix Prosper Basse, au cours d'une conférence de presse à Kinshasa.

"Malgré le processus de désarmement volontaire" qu'ils ont timidement entamé fin mai, la Monusco considère que ces combattants "constituent toujours une source d'insécurité" pour les populations.

Barack Obama's special envoy to central Africa issues warning to FDLR, a group formed by leaders of the Rwanda genocide

fdlr_fighter.jpgBarack Obama's special envoy to central Africa has warned an armed group in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) that it has months to surrender or face "the military option".

Speaking at the US president's summit with African leaders in Washington, Russell Feingold said there was a "tremendous need to finish off" the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR), a group formed by the leaders of the genocide in Rwanda 20 years ago and which controls parts of eastern DRC.

"We have to get rid of the FDLR, not so much because of their military capacity, but because of what they represent and the destabilising effect that they have with regard to relations with Rwanda.

Rwanda : quand la jeune diaspora retourne au bercail. Print

Miracle économique et opportunités d'affaires séduisent des jeunes. Ils succombent de plus en plus à l'appel du pays des Mille-Collines.

La fuite des cerveaux vers l'Occident est souvent considérée comme l'un des obstacles au développement du continent africain. Le Rwanda n'y échappe pas, mais a toutefois trouvé une parade : inciter la diaspora à rentrer au bercail. Et ça marche ! Alors qu'au cours de leur histoire les Rwandais ont, souvent malgré eux, été obligés d'aller vivre dans les pays voisins tels que l'Ouganda, le Congo, le Burundi, la Tanzanie, ou en Europe, la Belgique ou la France, ils reviennent petit à petit au pays.

olivier_nduhungirehe.jpg1. On 31 July 2014, Rwanda, which is a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council for the period January 1st 2013 through December 31st 2014, has completed its second and last presidency of that organ. During that period, our country presided over the Council twice, in April 2013 and in July 2014, as the presidency is rotating, by alphabetical order and on a monthly basis, between members of the Security Council.

2. For both presidencies, Rwanda decided to convene “Wrap-Up Sessions”, which provide an opportunity for the Council to assess its work, through country-specific situations and thematic issues considered during the month, and critically examine its progress on those issues, its processes, and how it can increase its efficiency and effectiveness.!Google!Live!Facebook!StumbleUpon!Yahoo!Free social bookmarking plugins and extensions for Joomla! websites!

Published July 2, 2014

dr_kinani.jpgJean-Felix Kinani was far from center stage Tuesday when Rwanda held its tenth annual Kwita Izina, the national naming ceremony for baby mountain gorillas born during the past 12 months. Yet the 18 baby gorillas named at the event owe much to his team of veterinarians.

Kinani, 42, is the head Rwanda veterinarian with Gorilla Doctors, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving the health of the world's 880 remaining mountain gorillas—the iconic animals found in Rwanda, Uganda, and the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and the only great apes on Earth whose numbers are increasing.

Rwanda acting lawfully to address serious security threats Print

Rwanda is dealing with a specific security challenge in the North of the country where FDLR, an armed genocidal militia based in DRC, and their associates, have been recruiting and infiltrating. A judicial process is underway triggered by recent FDLR attacks in Musanze, resulting in several casualties including the death of a police officer shot outside the Police School, and the death of an infant child of a local mayor at her home. Earlier grenade attacks in crowded public places are another tactic that have caused death and suffering to innocent civilians.

Easter Memories and Miracles Are Testimony for Rwanda 1994. Print

Georgianne Nienaber


georgianne_nienaber.jpgThe funeral is over. Mourners have come and gone. It is an April spring and flowers are struggling to push through winter's cold soil and bloom in testimony to life. But the survivors of great and unspeakable loss carry an agonizing burden. Sometimes the darkest days are those following the funeral, when loneliness and remembrance slow the mind and fill the heart with pain. The bereaved are left alone with cruel sorrow. Hope is unable to bloom.

Discours du Président Paul Kagame à l’occasio du 20ème Commémoration du Génocide contre les Tutsi Print

Il n’y a pas de mots assez forts pour exprimer ma gratitude envers tous nos amis venus du monde entier pour s’associer à nous en un jour aussi important que celui-ci. Par la même occasion, j’aimerais aussi remercier tous ceux qui se sont tenus à nos côtés tout au long de l’incroyable voyage sur le chemin de la reconstruction du Rwanda.

Nous sommes ici rassemblés, pour rappeler à notre souvenir la mémoire de ceux qui ont perdu la vie pendant le génocide et pour réconforter ceux qui y ont survécu.

Tout en rendant hommage aux victimes toujours vivantes ou trépassées, nous saluons également l’inébranlable résilience de l’âme rwandaise, grâce à laquelle notre pays a pu survivre et renaître.

A nos parents, à nos enfants, à nos frères et soeurs qui ont survécu, aux Rwandais qui ont résisté à l’incitation au génocide ainsi qu’à ceux qui expriment leurs remords, je dis que c’est vous qui portez le fardeau de notre histoire.

Nous avons recherché la justice et la réconciliation du mieux que nous pouvions, mais cela ne ramène guère ce que nous avons perdu.
