Rio Tinto, the global multinational which is involved in a range of mining projects across the world, is developing in the Simandou mining concession – Guinea Conakry, what will become the biggest production unit of iron ore in Africa, once completed. Many of us, when we hear about this mining company we think of it as totally western in its ownership. But apparently, Aluminum Corporation of China Limited (Chinalco) is its main shareholder. It does not however have the majority of shares to control the company.  Continue reading

Rwanda: RPF Crimes in DRC, an exiled ex-DMI and soldier testifies


Boston - Rwanda Day 2012Jambonews, an online news outlet, made a French transcript of a testimony given by an ex-DMI and soldier of the Rwandan Patriotic Front. I personally heard him live in Kinyarwanda on Radio Itahuka where he was being interviewed by the presenter. The text has been translated into English. What is astonishing after listening and reading the testimony is the disconnect between those like Howard G. Buffett and Tony Blair  who are still backing Paul Kagame. No wonder some voices are calling racists these western sponsors of the dictator of Rwanda, because they don’t seem to have any threshold of victims beyond which their friend can go for them to leave him sank on his own. Please read below the translation of the testimony. It is chilling and raises goose bumps on the skin. Only Hitler’s gas chambers and the entire Nazi experience get closer. 

This is an illustration of Paul Kagame's criminal hands that Howard Buffet and Tony Blair are avoiding to consider in their advocacy for the dictator so their business interests continue to flourish in the region, at the expense of millions of Congolese, hundreds of thousands of raped women, Rwandans, and others, for almost 20 years now.

“I’ll give you my testimony about what happened in the Congo, where I was a soldier of the RPA (now the RDF Rwandese Defence Force) before being assigned to the DMI (Directorate of Military Intelligence). We were sent to kill refugees in Kisangani at the orders of Captain Shema of the DMI and Lieutenant Frank Bashimake. Up until Kisangani fleeing refugees walked on the road, once there they were blocked by the river, and this is where they perished; what happened there is the subject of the story I am going to tell you Rwandan friends,” declares the former DMI member who recognizes himself to be a former RPF killer, now a refugee in Europe, and did not want to reveal his name or address for his safety and that of his family. He delivered his story in Kinyarwanda on radio Itahuka on Saturday 9th of February. Radio Itahuka is online broadcasting outlet established by RNC, an entity initiated and led by former RPF personalities once close to Paul Kagame.  Continue reading
