Kabila-Kagame: a deceptive pair ill-set on a collision course with CNDP
by Ntarugera Deo Koya, Independent Researcher
Kigali, Rwanda, Apr 15, 2009
For anyone attempting to understand the recent stunning rapprochement between Kigali and Kinshasa, multifarious interrogations remain unanswered in the thickly charged air of Kinshasa, Goma, Gisenyi and Kigali. Lots of people ask themselves in petto endless streams of questions out there in DR Congo and out here in Rwanda, as to how Kabila this and that, how Kagame this and that. Parliamentarians are the sort of people supposed not to pose questions as to that sudden and incredible rapprochement between two political regimes that had for quite a while cultivated enmity with such a high degree of fancy and virtuosity, that it had indeed become a culture, a political culture of sorts. Vital Kamerhe, erstwhile Congolese MP, must now be regretting speaking out loud to query president Kabila's sovereign decision to allow Kagame's armada into DR Congo.
In this part of the world, people do not oppose what their bosses say. Your boss could the minister of this or that; you must always keep your mouth shut when in session with minister x or y, you'll only acceptably open your mouth to say, 'Yes, Sir' or 'Yes, Ma'am'. Your boss could also be the president of the republic of Congo, Rwanda.... Countries here are all sick, pregnant with genocides and sectarian tendencies of all sorts. Government executives from top to bottom are rogues embezzling public funds on a day to day basis. All these cannot say 'No' to what the boss says, for they would lose their job. In these lands, you'd rather lose your life but not your job. Ministers are always afraid of being kicked out of their job by 'HE' – His Excellency.
If Kabila and Kagame cannot get advice from their advisors who fear HE, let some of us volunteer advice whenever we can. The world had for a long time been wishing to see Kabila and Kagame shaking hands and smiling to each other. It never happened when it was due. Embassies were supposed to reopen in both capitals years back, they never did. Kabila opposed the normalization of diplomatic relations between Kinshasa and Kigali. He knows why he kept refusing. The detention of general Nkunda has now determined both heads of states to envisage a semblance of diplomatic normalcy. It is all fake, nonetheless. The causes that severed diplomatic relations between Kigali and Kinshasa 15 years ago are still there. Nkunda is far from being part of those causes; if anything Chairman Nkunda may be perceived as just one of the effects of those causes. Calculations of politicians about to stage a reversal of order in their approaches are many. Kagame is apparently eager to befriend Kabila. Kabila is speaking out loud to voice his mistrust of his Kigali friend, alleged to have a hidden agenda behind his recent profusions of smiles. However, whether Kagame can see it or not, it is glaringly evident that Kabila is not interested in any diplomatic normalization of relations between Kigali and Kinshasa. Protecting his power matters very much to him, of course. Getting general Nkunda out of the way helps Kabila consolidate his grip on power for sure; indeed Nkunda had vowed to kick Kabila out of power, before long. Kabila could never have hoped to see Chairman Nkunda out of his way so easily.
There is a mystery unfolding between Kinshasa and Kigali, which may not take long in baring itself. Meantime genocide mongers have resumed their business in North and South Kivu. Death tolls have never been my long suit; counting the dead here and there is none of my business: the United Nations have the time and money to count the dead; let them go count the people dying as a result of the undue incapacitation of Chairman Nkunda and the disruption of CNDP – the only safeguards we have against genocide in DR Congo.
Kagame and his RPF (Rwandan Patriotic Front) are universally known to have stopped one of the major genocides in modern times. The US government donated fifteen million dollars to the RPF as a gratification for a job well done. Today, it looks like Kagame is out to tarnish his global image. The man who stopped Rwandan Tutsi genocide is now abetting the genocide of Congolese Tutsi.

NKUNDA SAY UN CRIMINALS IN CONGO (...Have you met personally with Alan Doss [top UN ambassador to Congo]?...."No, we talked only on phone. The first time I talked to him it was in January when we were in Goma in a Peace Talks of this Amani process. One day I told him: 'You are coming with your tanks to ask us to shut our mouth. ... But in Congo there is nothing: education nothing, infrastructure nothing. That's why I told him: If African countries who were under your colony refused you to continue to colonise them - even if you were doing something - don't think that you are going to oblige us to shut mouth. Because we are going to fight.... So you are asking us to not fight.... Our president is bad, and so bad... because he is robbing the country; he is destroying the country; he is destroying the people. He is destroying the economy and the minds. Because there is no education when teachers are not paid. He is destroying the nature of Congolese. So you ask me to not fight. I say to him: Bring the tanks and other aviation forces because we will fight until we will be free. That's the last time I talked to him - when he engaged MONUC to fight. And I told him: "You are engaging MONUC to fight. I'll fight them because I'm fighting for freedom. And you want me to shut mouth. And to be a slave - a slave in economic slavery of China. I'll not accept. I'll fight 'til I die. Then my brothers will continue to fight. And my elders will fight. And my son will fight". So does China's influence concern you now? "Yes, of course. Because we are going now in economic slavery, if we will accept this Chinese contract. It's the end for Congolese.... See Nkunda Interview: Part V, You Tube, Jan 3, 2009
