Paul Kagame is the man who triggered the Rwandan and Burundi genocide, when he as commander of the RPF (Rwandan Patriotic Front) used a Ugandan surface to air missile to shoot down a jet carrying the Rwandan President Juvénal Habyarimana and his Burundian counterpart Cyprien Ntaryamira.

This calculated move was designed to anger Hutus in both countries and get them to massacre Tutsis to create grounds for Kagame to launch a Tutsi counter attack on Rwanda, to snatch power from the majority Hutus and replace them with the colonial minority Tutsi hierarchy. In other words Kagame sacrificed a million of his people for power.

Trained at Fort Leavenworth in the United States, this heartless tactician is a US military asset that has been used to destabilize the Great Lakes and Congo in particular, for western corporations to loot its strategic minerals.

This is why even though Rwanda has very limited Cassiterite deposits, it exports more Cassiterite than Congo which has the world’s biggest deposits because much of Congo’s Carciterite is smuggled through Rwanda to the west.

After the war, Kagame became Rwanda’s Vice President and Minister Of Defense from where his rebels assisted Laurent Kabila to overthrow Mobutu Sese Seko. In return, he wanted his rebels to get positions in Kabila’s government, which Kabila declined.

In retaliation, Kagame and his patron Museveni of Uganda sent their western backed rebels to remove Kabila and push a UN plan to divide Congo into 5 separate states that western companies could loot with ease.

Kabila then asked SADC to help him halt the invasion. Zimbabwe, Namibia and Angola together with Chad, Sudan and Libya from the north, then intervened, leading to the Sun City Accord which rejected the UN proposal to balkanize Congo.

This angered the west who responded by imposing sanctions on Zimbabwe as punishment for leading the SADC intervention and land reform. It’s interesting to note that all the northern states that joined Zimbabwe and her SADC allies have all been destabilized by wars (Libya) and coups (Chad ans Sudan) since Congo.

Soon after the SADC intervention, the armies of Malawi and South Africa would be sent into Congo as UN peace keepers to protect western interests. Since then, war has flared up again in Congo, killing 6mil civilians, Rwanda is looting for the west and Kagame the Trojan Horse is being rewarded by the west championing him to lead African Free Trade. Beware Africa!
