Paul Kagame Has Closed Over 6,000 Churches And Mosques His Country.

Rwanda is awoke and many people in the country did not wonder his reasons for the closure of churches and Mosques because they knew his crucial rule can cause certain things.

I have closed over 6000 churches and mosques in my country and I am now demanding for a theology degree for every religious leader.

Stop playing with people's faith and making it a business. Rwanda is already a blessed country. Yes, he modified his country's constitution to allow him to rule for up to 40 years until 2034, but who expects true democracy in that part of the world anyway?

President Paul Kagame said call me a grudge-holder, but Rwandan just can't forgive and forget that Paul Kagame ordered the killing of approximately 350,000 ethnic Hutu in Rwanda and Congo in the 1990s. This puts him in the pantheon of post WWII murderers alongside Pol Pot and Idi Amin.

In 1994, as his forces seized control of Rwanda, they slaughtered an estimated 100,000 Hutu civilians. After many surviving Hutu fled to Congo and he pursued them in 1996 murdering another 200,000. When remaining domestic Hutu resisted his ethnic dictatorship in 1998 and he ordered a brutal counterinsurgency that killed 50,000 more.

In a 2014 report titled "Repression Across Borders", Human Rights Watch documents at least 10 cases involving attacks or threats against critics outside Rwanda since the late 1990s, citing their criticism of the Rwandan government, the RPF or Kagame. Examples include the killing of Sendashonga in 1998, the assassination attempts against Nyamwasa in South Africa as well as the murder of former intelligence chief Patrick Karegeya in South Africa on 31 December 2013. Speaking about Karegeya's killing, Kagame spoke of his approval saying "whoever betrays the country will pay the price, I assure you".

 In 2015, a former Rwandan military officer testified before the U.S. Congress that the Rwandan government had offered him $1 million to assassinate Karegeya as well as Kagame critic General Kayumba Nyamwasa. After his testimony, this officer himself faced threats in Belgium as did a Canadian journalist. In December 2017, a South African court found that the Rwandan government continued to plot the assassination of its critics overseas.
