Kagame-Museveni: Who is the worst killer?
By Abbey K. Semuwemba
12th Dec 2011: It was sad to learn of the murder of Rwanda journalist Charles Ingabire (RIP) who was gunned down in Kampala on 30th November 2011. He was a known critic of Rwandan President Paul Kagame and if it can be proved that Rwanda was responsible for the death of this Journalist, then it’s the responsibility of every African to make sure the culprits are brought to justice.
I have always admired Kagame’s leadership. But I think he has reached his weakest point by being accused of killing his political opponents abroad. This is where Museveni is better. At least he kills some and bribes some. If it wasn’t for that, people like UPC’s Hajji Badru Wegulo, Peter Mayiga, and Eriya Kategeya would all be dead. That said, I wouldn’t say that I don’t look over my shoulders when I am in Kampala.
Museveni and his NRM do not kill their opponents in broad day light unless you are protesting on streets. He only eliminates serious opponents. Secondly, I have a feeling that Kagame is a very emotional no-nonsense guy in comparison to Museveni. Museveni knows how to control his anger and emotions. If he has to, he will kill you when you least expect it. I don’t know whether his unpredictability makes him more dangerous than Kagame.
Kagame comes across as a sadist mafia. He can easily put a bullet in one’s mouth without thinking twice. I am sorry to say this, but I think most Rwandese are like this. Their past has had a big impact on how they value human life. They find killing so easy. I have watched documentaries about the genocide and they are horrible.
Anyway let me end by sending my condolences to the family of the late Charles Ingabire. Nobody deserves to be killed like that. END. Please login to www.ugandacorrespondent.com every Monday to read our top stories and anytime mid-week for our news updates.
