Rwanda will continue to progress even if France denies its role in the Genocide -Kagame
Twenty two years now, France has been denying its role in the 1994 genocide that claimed over 1 million Tutsi.
In November last year, Rwandaâ€™s national commission against genocide (CNLG) identified three key French nationals; General Jacques Hogard, Jean-Claude La Fourcade Jacques Rosier and Michel Robardey, for being behind a project to finance and support the genocide.
General Jacques Rosier was head of the Military Assistance Detachment and Instruction (DAMI) between June 1992 and November 1992 during the period when the Rwandan army committed several massacres on Tutsis.
DAMI was housed in military camps of Gabiro, Mukamira and Bigogwe as well as at Nyakinama university campus and Gako military camp in Bugesera.
During that time, the Rwandan army intensified military and ideological training of Interahamwe in these military camps where Jacques Rosier was the coordinator of these courses as head of DAMI.
All these had been living evidence that Rwandan continued to show France and requested it to accept its role in the genocide, but France remained tight-ripped.
For President Kagame, â€œRwanda will continue to live on and progress even whether France accept its responsibility or not.â€
Addressing member of local and international media at Amahoro National Stadium during a night vigil to commemorate the genocide, President Kagame said that: â€œPeople who have responsibility in Genocide have not been tried and real issue has not been addressed.â€
On whether France has shown any sign of accepting its role in the genocide, Kagame said: â€œNothing new.â€
Recently, Alain Juppe â€“ former France Foreign Minister during the 1994 genocide against Tutsis, made an itching statement saying accusing France of its role in the genocide is a â€œdisgrace and historical falsificationâ€.
