Dramatic developments from Dr. Rudasingwa, our guest from last week.

On October 1st, Dr. Theogen Rudasingwa, former secretary-General and chief of staff to the Rwandan Patriotic Front, surprised the world when he issued a statement that Paul Kagame was involved in the shooting down of the Falcon 50 jet carrying the Presidents of Rwanda and Burundi in 1994.

The current President of Rwanda came to power during the tragic events of 1994. Although discussed by investigators connected to the ICTR, as well as refugees, this is the first time someone so close to Kagame has confirmed the President's involvement in sparking the conflict:

Paul Kagame was responsible for the crime of killing [President Juvénal Habyarimana of Rwanda and President Cyprien Ntaryamira of Burundi] in 1994. Kagame "told me that he was personally" involved in the downing of the jet, which is a 'public secret' within RPF circles.

It has been a difficult journey for Rudasingwa. "I enthusiastically sold this deceptive story to foreigners, who by and large came to believe it, even when I knew Kagame was the culprit in this crime." Having experienced feelings of guilt for having been part of a false narrative, it has also been a redemptive process. "I've cast my burdens now, and I feel very free."
