Rwandan Diaspora in Australia (RDA) has once again raised a request to Australia Government through an open letter to not let a group of genocide deniers led by Amiel Nubaha desecrate into a platform for spreading their genocide ideology and denial agenda.

Nubaha Nubaha is a former president of Rwandan Association of Queensland and one of the children from suspect families live in Queensland known to have been involved in the genocide which claimed over 1 million Tutsi women, men, and children. No wonder that they call it Rwandan Genocide.

Nubaha is a former president of Rwandan Association of Queensland and one of the children from suspect families live in Queensland.

Their activities are very well documented. During a similar sham commemoration last year, they invited well -known genocide deniers and leaders of terrorist organisations: Paul Rusesabagina and Gervais Condo.

The former is the leader of a party called MRCD (Revolutionary Movement for Democratic Change) – FLN (National Liberation Front), and the latter is one of the RNC (Rwandese National Congress). Both MRCD and RNC are part of P4 Group fighting to overthrow the Rwandan government and have been designated as terrorist by the UN Panel of Experts.

The letter makes clear that Commemoration of Genocide against Tutsi in 1994 is a recognizable event worldwide referring that on 26th January of 2018,

“It is worth recalling that on the 26th January 2018, the General Assembly of the United Nations unanimously designed April 7th as International Day of reflection against the Tutsi in Rwanda.

The Rwandan Diaspora of Australia therefore strongly objects to the plan by a group of genocide revisionists and deniers to hold a simulacre of commemoration of what they call Rwandan Genocide, in bid to spread their denialism agenda.” The Express News has a copy of Letter.

“Honourable Members of Parliament and Senators, we consequently beg you not to let these deniers desecrate into a platform for spreading their genocide ideology and denial agenda. Would this even allowed to take place, it would be an act of dishonouring the 1994 Genocide victims,…” the letter states.

The letter also warns that “The Rwandan Diaspora in Australia expressed its strong objection to the use of the August House in what could be viewed as support for the well documented existence of the Genocide denials and propagandists of the double genocide campaign for denying of Genocide against the Tutsi.”

RDA concluded by requesting the parliament to not let these deniers desecrate into a platform for spreading their genocide ideology and denial agenda, adding that if they allow this event to  take place that it would be an act of dishonouring the 1994 genocide victims.

Genocide commemoration week starts on 7th April and ends on 13th April every year. Many Genocide deniers around the World use to take days before this week to increase their efforts to spread their wrong information in order to disrupt the week and cause damages to the whole nation, particularly Genocide survivors.

Therefore, the Government of Rwanda sensitizes citizens to avoid these deniers and come together while the country is mourning the loss of more than one million lives killed in Genocide against Tutsi in 1994.

This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic that is hitting the entire globe and African countries including Rwanda, the commemoration of Genocide perpetrated against the Tutsi was done at homes as citizens are locked down to avoid the spread of the epidemic.
