Rwandan President Paul Kagame will open a period of one hundred days of national mourning today Sunday April the 7th, by lighting a flame at the Kigali Genocide Memorial. This is followed by a ceremony at the Amahoro stadium.
I do not understand that the ceremony will be attended by the Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel, who yesterday smiled when giving a handshake to Kagame. The French president Emmanuel Macron was also invited, but becomes the large absentee ‘due to agenda problems’. Macron sends MP Hervé Berville, a Rwandan orphan who was adopted by a French family. Macron hopes that this decision reflects his will to build a new relationship with Rwanda.
But altogether Europe should have taken the opportunity to to declare this sitting president was one of the causers of the tragedy, who should be brought before court for crimes against humanity.
