The Democratic Green Party of Rwanda would like to inform the public that it neither owns nor supports a new online Newspaper in the names of Rwanda Tribune.

It has come to our attention that Rwanda Tribune and its social media platforms have published some articles attacking other politicians. We hereby disassociate ourselves from those publications. Whomsoever that contributed to those articles did so on their own capacity and not in the names of the party.

Facts about ownership of this Newspaper can be retrieved from the office of the Registrar General, at Rwanda Development Board and from the Rwandan Association of Media Professional (ARJ).

We take on this opportunity to caution all party members who occupy positions in the party structures but are at the same time working as journalists to either resign from the party leadership portfolios with immediate effect or stop working as journalists, since the Rwandan media Law, does not allow active politicians to work as journalists.

 

Done at Kigali, 12th June 2020

Dr. Frank Habineza [MP]

President, DGPR
