Bishop John Osmers testifies to the plight of the Rwandans who have lost their refugee status in Zambia and on whom Rwandan President Kagame is trying to force repatriation.

Osmers and Phil Taylor discuss why the Rwandan refugees in Zambia lost their refugee status in Zambia June of 2013, Rwanda's offer for repatriation of these ex-refugees, why the Rwandans in Zambia are afriad to repatriate (obvious fear of Kagame's retaliatory brutal regime), the recent meetings between the Rwanda government, the Zambian government and the UN High Commission on Refugees.

The clincher is: Removal of the former refugee status not only creates stiff limitations on freedom of movement in Zambia but it also disqualifies the Rwandans for UNHCR support for services such as health and education needs and consideration for resettlement programs.
The sound was not good for Bishop Osmer's voice in this interview.
