To Orwell Today,

Dear Jackie Jura,

I would like to take the exceptional privilege of writing to you, to add my voice to that of Davinnah, and thank you very much for your concern over the people of Rwanda. I know I talk for the majority of Rwandans when I tell you that we are extremely grateful to you for the way you have taken your time and energy to understand the situation in our country.

It is true that many in the international community are reluctant to recognise the very vital role played by President Kagame, and the valiant women and men of the RPF that he led, in putting our people back on the path to civilisation, a people who were headed for the abyss. We fail to understand why they would prefer to see us continue to murder one another -- maybe to re-inforce their conclusion that we are a primitive people, eternally condemned to continual ethnic slaughter?

In the name of many Rwandans, I thank you and wish you the best in your work. We hope you will find time to pay us a visit.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours.


Greetings Pan,

Don't take it personally that the international community, otherwise known as Big Brother, portrays Rwanda in a false light. They do that to every nation they are attempting to destroy, and it doesn't matter if you are black or white. The victims of evil are made up of every race, just as the perpetrators of evil come from every race. Orwell talked about it in 1984, as you can see in theme 10.The Rulers.

Thank you very much for your warm wishes from Rwanda. If ever it becomes possible I would love to visit your country. When I watched the documentaries this year I thought to myself that I would like to go there. The spirit of your people is impressive and inspirational and an example to the world. Another thing I love about your country is the music and the dancing and the physical beauty of the land.

Merry Christmas to you too and all the best for Rwanda in the New Year.
