Truth and Reconciliation Video Now Available

Video of the landmark IHLI “Truth and Reconciliation” Roundtable of November 28, 2011 is now available online.

On October 1, 2011, formerly Rwanda’s Ambassador to the United States, Dr. Theogene Rudasingwa, issued a public apology to the Rwandan People for his role in the RPF cover-up of Paul Kagame’s assassination of the Presidents of Rwanda and Burundi on April 6, 1994 that triggered the “Rwanda genocide.”

On November 28, 2011, at the IHLI Rwandan Truth and Reconciliation Roundtable, Dr. Rudasingwa announced he had personally apologized to the widow of the slain Rwandan president just before coming to the Roundtable. Madam Habyarimana thanked him for his courage in coming forward, despite the very real threat of his own assassination; for his honesty, although too long delayed; and, she forgave him for his role in the cover-up of RPF crimes, including the assassination of her husband, President Juvenal Habyarimana of Rwanda, in the spirit of Truth and Reconciliation which will be necessary to heal the suffering of both Hutu and Tutsi Rwandans.
