SomeoneTellKagame: it’s more than 10 Rwandans who oppose his 3rd term

Picture of Ba Ki-Moon, UN Secretary General, by Don't Be Blind This Time, portraying the number of victims for whom UN experts indicate Rwanda could be responsible in front of a court.

African dictators come in different shades. The Rwandan President Paul Kagame is one of a kind.

He has been the strongman of the once genocide-ravaged country since 1994. 21 years have almost passed now.

He has stifled democracy in his country. When his senators and members of parliament reported back on national consultations on his 3rd term, this on Monday 10/08/15, they said that only 10 individuals opposed it. This can only be a laugthing matter.

The fear out of intimidation about expressing oneself in Rwanda on anything that contraries the regime in power is so enormous, that people decide instead to back anything thrown at them for public support. That is how that the almost ridiculous 100% record behind the 3rd term can find some explanation.

But luckily for Rwandans inside who oppose the 3rd term, they have found many voices among Kenyans through twitter, who are using the hashtag #SomeoneTellKagame to ask Kagame why he wants to spoil his legacy.

I’ve selected for the reader some of the interesting messages published with that hashtag:
