Our Dad Is A Hero

By Francis Xavier Ndagabanye Muhoozi

Former Rwandan President Juvenal Habyarimana, one of four presidents (including Melchior NDADAYE, Cyprien NTARYAMIRA et Laurent-Desire KABILA) from the Great Lakes region of Africa who died victims of the coalition of the dictators Paul Kagame and Joweri Museveni and their US and UK sponsors.

22 years have passed when duty called. On that  06th day of April 1994, our dad General Juvenal Habyarimana answered the call.

When evil Museveni taught hatred, our Dad preached peace; when evil Kagame taught how to kill, our Dad talked peace; when evil Salim Saleh talked revenge, our dad taught unity; but when Museveni invaded Rwanda to kill, our dad answered to protect without hesitation or fear.

He didn’t ask what it would cost him,
He just saw a need that was clear.

A need to defend his country,
No matter what anyone else thought.
Despite back-stubbing from his own, our Dad went to the frontline.
Despite being despised by his own, our Dad stood firm and talked peace, and taught unity.
And there he stood and he fought.

He fought to preserve our freedom, he fought to maintain our unity, he fought to keep our peace,
Our right to govern ourselves,
Unencumbered by some foreign nation,
Trying to erase the beliefs we hold dear.

So our dad is a hero in my eyes,
And I hope he’s one in many eyes too.
Left with no option, he gave up his life trying to ensure every Rwandan maintained love, peace, unity, freedom, and development.

Rest in peace my Hero Juvenal Habyarimana.
