Advocating AGAINST the Lack of Freedom in Rwanda...

Lack of freedom is the most critical obstacle to the achievement of our people's dreams and aspirations. Freedom is the ultimate expression of human dignity and equality. Freedom is essential for human happiness and well-being. Freedom is a pre-requisite for peace and sustainable development, manifested by freedom of expression, association and choice

Despite the misleading claims by Kagame's regime, in present-day Rwanda, the following intolerable situation exists:

  • The monopoly of political power by a group with a narrow political base

  • The denial of space for political participation to individuals and political groups who are not members of the RPF

  • The marginalization of the majority of the population from genuine powersharing

  • The use of violence and other forms of persecution and fear to suppress attempts to exercise or claim fundamental and universal rights

  • Deep and widening polarization of society

  • Widespread and worsening poverty, especially among the rural population

  • Increasing disparities between the rich and poor

  • An endemic problem of refugees

  • Armed insurgency by groups based in the Democratic Republic of Congo

These all portend violent conflict in years to come. As such, Rwanda needs profound and systemic political reform immediately in order to avert the risk of violent conflict – conflict that, we fear, will be of catastrophic proportions.

The Rwanda National Congress (RNC) founders & members hold the unshakable view that Rwanda belongs to all Rwandans – Hutu, Tutsi and Twa equally – and that freedom, justice, peace and economic and social development are inextricably linked. We also share the firm belief that Rwandan society has not learned the necessary lessons from the traumatic events of the country‟s recent past; that the threat of new and deadly conflict looms large over the country‟s future; that only profound change – rooted in popular aspirations for freedom, peace and material well-being – can avert the looming crisis; and that the current ruling government, far from working to address the issues that so severely threaten the very survival of the nation, adamantly refuses to acknowledge the necessity for fundamental political change.



Rwanda National Congress, maintains the following vision for a new Rwanda:


“Rwanda will be a united, democratic, and prosperous nation inhabited by free citizens with harmonious and safe communities who will live together in peace, dignity and mutual respect, regardless of ethnic or other differences, within a democracy governed according to universal principles of human rights and the rule of law. "



The Rwanda National Congress attributes the problems of bad governance, deep social cleavages, and violent conflict that Rwanda has recently experienced, to the absence of sound values and adherence to the rights afforded all human beings pursuant to international conventions. The RNC firmly believes that political change in Rwanda must be grounded in the following core values:

  • Human dignity and respect for human rights

  • Equality and non-discrimination

  • Mutual respect

  • Democracy and the rule of law

  • Integrity

  • Empathy

  • Solidarity

  • Patriotism

  • Right and responsibility to hold leaders accountable

  • Accountable leadership

  • Truth

  • Justice and fairnes

  • Inclusion and embracing and celebrating diversity

  • Tolerance
