R.T.L.M. Tape 0017—Extract

Speaker: Gaspard GAHIGI, Editor-in-Chief of R.T.L.M.

Another thing I’d like to talk about: you have heard it said that the Inkotanyi started off by saying that there is a military company, the GP, which, according to them, was involved in the massacres; those things must also be treated with utmost caution because, during the negotiations, if anyone admitted even ever so slightly that there were soldiers who played a role, it would cost us dearly, because they would then say that soldiers are murderers, the company ought to be dissolved, the Rwandan Army ought to be dissolved, and, in fact, those things have been talked about for a long time now, and even during the Arusha talks, at the beginning, the Inkotanyi demanded that, and it was only later that they said that they wanted a merger to be called for, but in reality, the Inkotanyi’s objective was to see the Rwandan army dissolved.
