Call on President Kagame to help end security threats in Rwanda

The Democratic Green Party of Rwanda has learned with great sadness the news of the deaths and causalities of the recent grenade attack in Kigali on 3rd January 2012.

We are very shocked that this is the second grenade attack falling near our party offices in Remera-Kigali. The last one was thrown just 100 metres away and this recent one has also been close.

Several of our members in Remera-Kimironko, which also happens to be the home area of the Party President, Frank Habineza, are now living in great fear. This is also coupled with some people who have threatened to rape and decapitate some of our members, who have braved to re-open our party offices.

We would like to deliver our message of condolences to all those injured and all the families that have lost their loved ones. We request all our members and supporters to remain vigilant. Let's pull ourselves together and be able to overcome.

We call upon President Kagame and all the Rwandan security agencies to help end these security threats as soon as possible. It is the primary role of the state to ensure security of its citizens ; we cannot afford having more Rwandans die from such things that could be prevented.

There is no way, the country will move forward if the perpetrators of such cowardly acts are not brought to justice.

We would also like to once again call for the re-opening up of the investigation into the gruesome murder of our Vice President, Andre Kagwa Rwisereka, who was decapitated on 14th July 2010.
