Rwanda has upon the visit to Mozambique by President Paul Kagame called on the host government to extradite twelve Genocide suspects hiding in that South African country.
Mozambique is home to 3000 Rwandan refugees most which are former militia including Interahamwe and other Genocidaires.
The suspects are alleged of their roles in the 1994 massacres of ethnic Tutsi in a Genocide that was organized the then President Juvenile Habyarimana for years and committed by government of Abatabazi led by Theodore Sindikubwabo who was also killed in the same year by his fellow criminals.
President Kagame’s concern was given immediate utmost response by the leaders in that country accepting to collaborate in the identification of the suspects’ whereabouts and their arrest and extradition to the East African Country.
“We are to carefully collaborate and in the fulfillment of international norms,” Oldemiro Baloi, Mozambique Foreign Minister said.
The Rwandan president led the 1990-94 liberation war that ended tribalism, territorial and sectarian discrimination and the Genocide against Tutsi.
The arrest warrants brought by Rwanda extend also to DR.Congo which agreed to send Genocide suspects for trial in Kigali but dates are yet to be disclosed from the Kinshasa government as it prepares for presidential elections.
