RB promises to handover genocide suspects to Kagame

Rwandan president Paul Kagame

President Rupiah Banda has agreed to help Rwanda identify that country’s genocide suspects who may be hiding in Zambia.

President Banda and Rwanda’s Paul Kagame held a closed door meeting Monday afternoon in the Rwandan capital Kigali.

President Banda flew to Kigali Sunday evening for a two-day state visit. The agenda given for President Banda’s visit was to consult on the issue of security in the Great Lake’s region, ahead of the African Union summit scheduled for Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, at the end of the month.

But Information received by the Watchdog indicates that the talks centred more on the Rwandan genocide. President Banda is said to have agreed to send all suspects that maybe living in Zambia for possible trial in their country.

Rwandan Media has consistently accused Zambia and other African countries of harbouring genocide suspects.

About 800,000 ethnic Tutsis and moderate Hutus were killed in the massacre, which went on for 100 days in 1994

Just next month, witnesses to the 1994 Rwanda genocide will testify in Finland at the trial of a man charged with 15 killings in the massacres.

Four Rwandans who sought asylum in Zambia will testify for the defense in February.
