At least 14 protesters were killed on Wednesday during demonstrations in Sudan, the health ministry of the dissolved Sudanese government said.

On Wednesday, Khartoum and other cities witnessed huge demonstrations against measures recently adopted by the Sudanese army commander, including dissolving the government and appointing a new sovereign council.

The protesters gathered in the cities of Khartoum, Bahri and Omdurman. Due to closure of the bridges linking the three cities and the intensive security presence on main roads, the protesters failed to reach central Khartoum, where vital government utilities sit, including the government headquarters, the Republican Palace and the Army Command.

The protesters raised banners demanding restoration of the civilian government led by the removed Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok as well as release of political detainees.

The Sudanese police has not yet issued any comment about the events which accompanied Wednesday’s protests. The mobile phone service was cut off inside Sudan shortly before Wednesday’s demonstrations began, with intensive presence for the security and police forces on the main roads.

Sudan has been suffering a political crisis after General Commander of the Sudanese Armed Forces Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan declared a state of emergency on Oct. 25 and dissolved the sovereign council and government

Ugandan authorities have been caught red handed and left with no excuses to make after an agent of RNC is seen in a video mobilising for support to destabilise Rwanda.

RNC is a terrorist group composed of Rwandans living in South Africa, European countries and in their field bases in Uganda.

Ugandan authorities have denied the presence of RNC for long.

Finally more undesputed evidence is out. A video has surfaced on internet showing RNC agents during a burial ceremony in Kagadi, Bunyoro, openly calling up on Rwandans in Uganda to support the organisation’s terror activities.

Muhamad Nzabandora from Gayaza town, Kyadondo, stood before dozens of mourners and spoke in Kinyarwanda in the video that is not yet know when it was captured. “…we can’t keep it a secret any more, we have to be open about it,” he said, referring to plans to attack Rwanda.

Prior to him, another agent had spoken and said he had brought contributions from RNC leadership as condolences. He categorically announced the presence of the RNC and encouraged more Rwandans to join the organisation.

The burial was held publicly. Ugandan local authorities and regions leaders were reportedly  present.

Meanwhile, the recent evidence is that of RNC’s armed wing, P5, operating from DRC jungles where it’s agents are trained.

Many of them were trained under Rtd. Major Mudathiru who has been convicted for life in Rwanda.

P5 were attacked by the FARDC forces, a raid that left many of its forces dead. Others were captured and handed to Rwanda in August 2019.

There are also other 35 that were in the P5 and RUD Urunana who were captured in Kinigi, northern province in 2019. Others fled to Uganda with their ring leader Capt. Cassien Nshimiyimana alias ‘Gavana’ who is protected by Uganda.

Another ring leader, Lt. Col. Selemani Kabayija,  was also captured and sentenced to life imprisonment. 

Meanwhile, the video has created a social media frenzy. Ugandan authorities have made no comments.

50 Witnesses To Testify In Muhayimana’s Genocide Case

Published

on

About 50 witnesses are expected to give out their testimonies today in France accusing Claude Muhayimana for his role in the Genocide against the Tutsi that was perpetrated Tutsi in Bisesero, and areas of Kibuye.

ICTR’s witness reports regard Bisesero as among the worst places of the horror of the Genocide against the Tutsi.

The feature of the witnesses includes 15 from Rwanda that will be testifying before the judges at Assize Court in Paris in the one-month-long case.

In the last session, the judges have postponed the hearing because the witnesses couldn’t travel during the Covid-19 travel restrictions.

His case follows those of Captain Pascal Simbikangwa, sentenced in 2016 to 25 years in prison, and former mayors Octavien Ngenzi and Tito Barahira, sentenced in 2018 to life imprisonment after a joint trial.

The legal systems in France grant him universal jurisdiction for the prosecution of crimes against humanity.

During the last hearing, Muhayimana, 60, and a former hotel were accused of complicity in genocide as well as crimes against humanity for providing aid and assistance. The accusations are based on the ground that he transported Hutu militias to the killing sites in the Kibuye areas.

French judges rejected the charges against Claude Muhayimana for the massacre at the Kibuye church on April 17, 1994, where almost 2,000 Tutsis were killed.

IBUKA France in a statement said it was happy that the 10-year trial was finally taking place.

Egide Nkuranga, President of Ibuka, the umbrella of Genocide survivors, said the trial had been hampered by different political reasons over the past years but now France has shown interest in collaborating the impunity.

The 60-year old was investigated in December 2011 when an arrest warrant was issued against him but he was arrested in 2012 at his workplace in the city of Rouen and placed under extradition and was released later and re-arrested again in 2014.
