After twice missing an opportunity to come in Rwanda ahead of presidential election campaign, Father Thomas Nahimana has founded a new government operating in exile, naming Victoire Ingabire, now serving her 15-year prison sentence in Rwanda, part of the cabinet.
BBC reports that the new government, represented by Father Nahimana, is made of 14 ministers, including Victoire Ingabire who is serving her sentence in Nyarugenge Prison, known as 1930, since December 13th, 2013.
Father Nahimana is reported to be the head of state in that government and is assisted by the Prime Minister and an advisor.
Victoire Ingabire, Umuhoza and Deogratias Mushayidi are part of the government where the former is in charge of culture, family and feminine promotion while the other is in charge of Justice, with each of them having a secretary.
While Nahimana’s new government was founded in exile, it invited the Government of Rwanda in Kigali to take part in the discussions between both sides, which is expected to coincide with the release of some inmates whose names were not mentioned.
It also calls the government of Kigali to open doors for people living abroad who want come back in their birth country so that they can take part in the presidential elections scheduled for August 2017, and this should be done not later than March 23rd, 2017
Father Nahimana is the head of Ishema political party, now operating abroad. He is also managing ‘Le Prophete’ newspaper, which is also operating abroad.
In November 2016, Igihe.com wrote that Father Nahimana has been understood to have badly treated and spoken both Tutsis and Hutus, who he called ‘Chicks’
He said, “When you see those [Hutus], you find that they seem not aware that they have a problem. They are like chicks playing under the eagle’s nest, not knowing the danger around. They aren’t aware of how to take care
Hutus have a serious problem in that country, they have been put aside, they are being killed […], what I want to tell Hutus, if they get to know, for at least 25 minutes, that they have a problem in that country, that they have been put aside, and understand it in 25 minutes. I don’t mean all Hutus who are in that country, only 10 per cent of them, their problem would be solved in the next 6 months […] . I have no idea of where Hutus are, may be they have no updates.
It is also reported that there have been a lot of statements that Nahimana has made while abroad, much of which ruling out Tutsi Genocide as it was confirmed by Dr Bideri, a CNLG lawyer.
Father Nahimana has twice missed out on landing in Rwanda, where, for the first time, he stopped his journey in Nairobi, Kenya and for the second occasion, his journey failed at Brussels airport.
Finding it difficult to to break into Rwanda made Father Nahimana to think about it, claiming that if there are crimes he might be suspected, he would have been allowed to come in Rwanda and be interrogated about it.
President Kagame said he doesn’t understand why Father Nahimana was banned from entering the country, claiming that the fact that any person who is under justice pursuit by any chance, cannot be banned from entering the country fearing that he can spread Genocide ideology,
Speaking during RPF-Inkotanyi Political Bureau on December 11th, 2016, Kagame added that a person like Nahimana or anyone else cannot be a threat to the country’s security.
Thomas Nahimana was born in former Cyangugu Province, now in Western Province, where he served as a Catholic Church father. He later left the country for France where he started to act like he is against the government of Kigali, Rwanda.
He is now on course to contesting in Rwanda’s upcoming presidential elections scheduled in August 2017.
