We don’t need any lessons from foreigners about upholding values of democracy and human rights- President Paul Kagame

Rwanda President Paul Kagame responded to the BBCjournalist who questioned him about the state of human rights and democracy in Rwanda.

President Kagame said the foreigners with their news agencies like BBC need to get the facts right before pointing any fingers to Rwanda or any other African state concerning the state of human rights and democracy.

Kagame who recently hosted the CHOGM 2022 summit in Kigali said that it is actually foreigners who have for long been behind the destabilization of peace and democracy in Africa by fueling crises that have led to millions of deaths of Africans.

He cited the example of how the United Nations kept a blind eye when a genocide was taking place in Rwanda in the mid 90’s that led to the death of over a million people.

According to Kagame, the UN Security Council meeting that was held only concluded that it was a mere civil war between Rwandese and thus there was no need to intervene in the matter.

Mr Kagame so took time tell the journalist and listeners about how the same foreigners mistreated Africans like King Leopold II of Belgium who dehumanized Congolese to the lowest point possible robbing the mineral rich country of its resources and nothing was done about it.

Further, Mr Kagame also said that these same foreigners love playing the good and bad cop policy to hoodwink the world thay they care a lot. He then said that he was told by the same foreigners to release some of the criminals who were behind the injustices during the genocide yet such criminals deserve to serve their terms in jail.

Kagame said that its high time the foreigners left issues of Africans to Africans because they are most of the times destabilizers than peace keepers as they want many to think.
