R.T.L.M. Tape 0166—Extract

Speaker: Valérie BEMERIKI, Journalist for R.T.L.M.

We know the wisdom of our armed forces. They are careful. They are prudent. What we can do is to help them and help them wholeheartedly. A short while ago, some listeners called to confirm it to me saying: “We shall be behind our army and, if need be, we shall take up any weapon, spears, bows.” Traditionally, every man has one at home, however we shall also rise up. Our thinking is that the Inkotanyi must know that whatever they do, destruction of infrastructure, killing of innocent people, they will not be able to seize power in Rwanda. Let them know that that is impossible. They should know, however, that they are doing harm to their children and grand children because they might one day have to account for those actions.
