Kagame speaks

Jeune Afrique's interview with Rwandan president Paul Kagame, reprinted in the New Times, is an interesting read for those who follow the region. On Congolese Tutsi rebel leader Laurent Nkunda, a supposed Rwandan proxy now in detention in Rwanda:

Wasn’t he a member of the Rwandese Patriotic Army, your army, from 1991 to 1996?

Absolutely not. I even read somewhere that he may have helped us to liberate Kigali in July 1994. It is all rubbish.


I don’t know Laurent Nkunda. I have never met him, I have never seen him anywhere apart from the television, and I have never spoken to him on telephone. I hope that is clear.
