Call for Support to the Family of the Murdered Rwandan Journalist

The Democratic Green Party of Rwanda strongly condemns the murder of the Rwandan Journalist, Jean Leonard RUGAMBAJE, Deputy Editor of UMUVUGIZI Newspaper, who was gunned down on 24th June 2010, outside his home in Kigali.

We call upon the Rwandan and International media fraternity plus all other well-wishers to extend their support to the family of the murdered Rwandan journalist. The deceased journalist has left behind a two year old boy whose mother is un-employed.

We appeal to the Rwandan Government to use all means available to bring to justice these criminals and do whatever possible to help end these sad happenings. Revenge killings are completely un-acceptable. We support all non-violent means in conflict resolution.

We call upon the Rwandan Journalist Association to take this initiative forward and support the Late RUGAMBAJE’s family. The International media fraternity should take this initiative seriously and show solidarity to the deceased’s family, which is indeed in urgent need for support.

Issued at Kigali, 28th June 2010.
