A worrying development. Kagame, Rwanda’s current leader, got really good press in one of the more widely read books on the Rwandan genocide, Philip Gourevitch’s “We regret to inform
you that tomorrow we will be killed with our families”. Since the book came out, Kagame has had a very mixed record, doing a great deal in extraordinarily trying circumstances to rebuild the country and at the same time, getting stuck in a horrible and pointless conflict in the DRC. And now this.
I’d be curious to know whether Gourevitch has revised his opinion of Kagame in the meantime.
