Burundi. The United Nations shall inform to preparing a genocide.

17 Apr

April 03 2014, the United Nations Office in Burundi inform the Headquarters of the United Nations in New York that ended the distribution of weapons and uniforms of army and police to the young militiamen Imbonerakure.


Imbonerakure (literally: those that see far) is a para military militia created by the ruling party CNDD-FDD and composed of fanatical Hutu Power ideology of racial superiority, of several members of the opposition against extra-judicial executions carried out since 2013 . the Office of the United Nations has documented 27 cases of political violence against the opposition from January 2014 to date. The Imbonerakure are organized on the model of the infamous Rwandan Interahamwe militia, the author of the Genocide of 1994.

The Burundian journalist Roland Rugero and the Burundian human rights activist Leonce Ngendakumana inform that a REMA FM radio is preparing transmissions of ethnic hatred directed at population and a coordination service for the operations of genocide aimed at militants Imbonerakure just as he did Radio Mille hills before and during the genocide in Rwanda in 1994. Among the organizers of Radio Mille hills, there was a Belgian of Italian origin: Georges Reggiu.

Sentenced to 12 years in jail in June 2000 by the Special Tribunal for Crimes in Rwanda in Arusha (Tanzania) during the famous “Media Trial” (the process to the media), Reggiu was imprisoned in Tanzania, where he spent the first eight years. Later extradited to Italy in February 2008 thanks to an agreement on the enforcement of the sentence signed between the Italian government and the United Nations, April 21, 2009, two years and ten months before the end of the sentence, unexplained Raggiu benefited an amnesty signed personally by the Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. Released from prison, Raggiu did lose track of him.

Since January 2014, Burundi is living a dangerous political crisis due to the attempt of President Pierre Nkurunziza to change the constitution to get the third Presidential term in 2015.

The intent of the President Nkurunziza and his party, the National Council for the Defence of DemocracyForces for the Defence of Democracy (CNDD-FDD), is to reinforce the racial Hutu control over the country.

Are twelve constitutional amendments that he intends to implement. Among the most important: to destroy the current balance of ethnic power, reduce the necessary quorum in parliament for the approval of the law by two-thirds to a simple majority, prohibit the right of trade union association and the right to strike in the courts, army and police, restrict the Parliament only to parties that get 5% of the vote, providing the government with the power to unilaterally decide the criteria for the eligibility of candidates for the presidential elections.

Hidden behind these changes there is the goal constitutional of the President Nkurunziza and the CNDD-FDD to destroy the delicate balance of power between the Hutu majority and the Tutsi minority, established in the peace agreement in Arusha, Tanzania, signed between the warring parties in 2000 which put an end to seven years of devastating civil war and ethnic diversity.

The ethnic balance is ensured by a Hutu President and a Vice President Tutsis with almost the same powers. The proposal of the CNDD-FDD is to deprive those powers, the Vice President of transforming it into a figurehead to transfer them to the Prime Minister appointed by the President, who is also currently the Chairman of the party in power.

On 21 last March Burundian parliament has rejected the presidential proposal of the revision of the Constitution to a vote, thus preventing the President Nkurunziza to be able to apply to the third term and to institutionalize the project of racial Hutu domination over the country.

On March 8, 2014, a rally on the occasion of International Women’s Day has been interrupted by charges of unprecedented brutality of the riot Burundian forces with a provisional budget of 14 injured and 71 arrests of senior opposition figures including Alexis Sinduhije Party President Movement: Solidarity and Democracy (MSD). The repression of the demonstration, the police did not hesitate to shoot real bullets and commit acts of rape violence against women. On March 13, the Court of Bujumbura sentenced Alexis Sijduhije and 71 political activists to life in prison on the basis of charges of attempted insurrection.

Now the ciphertext of the United Nations, which was published by The Guardian and The Times, is opening disturbing scenarios on the future of the small central African country and the entire Great Lakes region already devastated by civil wars in Central African Republic and South Sudan and tensions between Rwanda, Uganda and Congo.

Occurring genocide in Burundi would imply an automatic military intervention by the Rwandan and Ugandan armies in defense of the Burundian people with the possibility of extension of the conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo which until now hosts the Rwandan FDLR terrorist group (formed by ex-genocidaires of 1994).

Since August 2013 the FDLR is preparing an invasion of Rwanda to bring down the current government and “finish the job” stopped in 1994. A first attempt to invasion was implemented in September 2013 with the direct support of the government of Kinshasa and France: Abacunguzi operation.

Martin Kobler, the head of the UN peacekeeping mission in Congo: MONUSCO in February, has secured the commitment of the United Nations to permanently destroy and without mercy the Rwandan FDLR terrorist group.

On March 13, 2014 France24 published the news that the UN troops launched an offensive against Rwandan rebels in the east of the country. Diplomatic sources and eyewitnesses on site say that the offensive was in reality a marketing operation orchestrated by MONUSCO and the government in Kinshasa. The FDLR forces (valued at around 12,000 men) remain intact and ready to invade Rwanda.

The news of preparations for the genocide in Burundi has been confirmed by Western sources earmarked to the African country.

According to several regional and international experts, the CNDD FDD does not take consideration the possibility of leaving power in 2015, the president turned to the Constitutional Court (which he nominated) for advice on changing the constitution in order to cancel the vote of Parliament.

The intransigence of Nkurunziza and his party is likely to lead to a new Burundi civil war. The risk of moving the ethnic conflict on a plane is high. The ethnic card would be able to steer and manipulate the violence and the anger of the starving Hutu from the wretched management of the country carried out by the President and his party. The Tutsi minority would be divided and indicated as the responsible for all the ills of Burundi. Logic and scenarios already lived during the economic and political crisis in Rwanda from 1991 to 1994.

Playing the ethnic card is not only a desperate and dangerous move for the Government but also a crime. Since independence (1962), Burundi has already recorded two ethnic cleansings that went very close to genocide. On April 27, 1972 we have seen a rebellion of some departments Hutu of the army in the Romonge city and Nyanza. The rebels declared the Independent Republic of Martyazo. During the uprising were wiped in a few days more than 1,200 Tutsis and Hutus who refused to join the rebellion. In reaction the Tutsi President Michel Micombero has declared martial law and suppressed the rebellion. During the military offensive of the regular army (controlled mostly by Tutsi) were registered mass killings. At least 15,000 Hutus were killed, including many members of the Hutu intelligentsia. About 30,000 Hutus sought refuge in neighboring countries: Zaire, Rwanda and Tanzania. On April 30, 1972 Hutu rebels backed by Congolese guerrilla Mulele attacked the border town of Gitega and Bujumbura, the capital, killing more than 35,000 Tutsi.

In May 1973 young Hutu leaders exiled in Rwanda, Tanzania, Zaire has organize three separate attacks in the failed attempt to overthrow the government. During the invasion were massacres of the population. The precise number of Tutsis and Hutus killed is still unknown.

On October 21, 1993, 25,000 Tutsi were killed a result of the revolt caused by the assassination of Hutu President Melchior Ndadaye (Hutu) undertaken by the army units.

The Civil War 1993 – 2003 made 300,000 deaths out of a population of 8.7 million people.

According to reliable sources all countries of a certain importance have sent ambassadors and ministers in order to convince Nkurunziza to change politics and get rid of the generals extremists who control the government, to express disagreed and push it to observe the rules of democracy that is committed to respect. Italy also sent a diplomatic delegation to persuade the Burundian President to desist from the genocidal level. The Italian ambassador Stefano Antonio Dejak in Kampala, Uganda, last week was on a mission to Bujumbura, Burundi. The Italian Embassy in Uganda maintains diplomatic relations with Burundi and Rwanda where there is only the consular representation. African Voices will attempt to contact the Ambassador, Dejak, and Honorary Consul in Burundi: Guido Ghirini to get more detailed information about it.

We publish the full text of the message encrypted promising to follow closely and consistently the evolution of these dramatic events in Burundi and keep you informed.
