This week's edition of Afrika in Focus looks at Rwanda 30 years on from the genocide that resulted in the loss of over 1 million Afrikan lives.
The western media and political establishments present the narrative that Rwanda is an Afrikan economic 'miracle' and the leadership of Kagame is an example of progressive Afrikan leadership.
The essence of this podcast is to challenge this western narrative by debunking this idea that somehow Kagame is a saint.
We start by highlighting the historical legacy of colonialism and imperialism, including the murder of more than 10 million Afrikans by King Leopold II of Belgium that was at the root of the 1994 genocide.
We advise that The Europeans had a big hand on the 1994 genocide as identified by the role the Catholic church had in it and also pose the question who supplied the arms to Rwanda and its mix of armed forces including Kagame's Rwanda Patriotic Front (RPF) that became victorious after the 1994 genocide and civil war.
We then delve into the REAL governorship and leadership style of Kagame. We point there IS NO democracy in the country and the opposition has been silenced by Kagame. We state how some journalists who have criticised Kagame's style of leadership have either been jailed or silenced.
We end by stating that the genocide of 1994 was a collective Afrikan failure and that Kagame has used his backing from the West to enrich himself, family and close allies at the expense of the majority of the people of Rwanda.
