Burundi: The ideology of genocide of the Tutsis in Burundi has its roots in Rwanda
Historians and our ancestors tell us that Rwanda and Burundi are two brothers which were the first countries to exist in this region and which had a good respected leadership and solid administration. Colonization could not impose its domination without destroying this system. Hence the policy of « divide to reign ».
To destroy our countries, colonization has relied or used as tools, a certain category of people (Hutue ethnicity) who agreed to be manipulated and based on ethnic criteria to think of eliminating the Tutsis considered as more dominating than the settlers.
The Mushingantahe Zénon Nicayenzi considers that the beginning of open conflicts between Hutu and Tutsi originates from the ‘’ Bahutus manifesto ’’, published on March 24, 1957 by Nine Hutu Intellectuals in Rwanda. These are Maximilien Niyonzima, Grégoire Kayibanda, Claver Ndahayo, Isidore Nzeyimana, Calliope Mulindaha, Godefroy Sentama, Sylvestre Munyambonera, Joseph Sibomana and Joseph Habyarimana.
Some writings seem to want to minimize the scope of this act by considering it as a simple expression of understandable demands, moreover moderate, but, in reality, it constitutes the visible part of an ideology already anchored in the hearts of these so-called leaders Hutus and that they will teach without delay in the mass so that the latter can go to acts of genocide.
It is also surprising that this ideology is conveyed by so -called Christians committed; This means that it was taught in schools led by religious or under convention and churches. Indeed, it is said that Kayibanda, Nzeyimana and Habyarimana had even received training which intended them for the priesthood. In addition, Kayibanda and Niyonzima were editors in the Kinyamateka newspaper, the Official Journal of the Church at the time; And Mulindahabi was secretary to the bishopric of Kabwayi and led, with Kayibanda, the Catholic action. This means that the white man who had this objective of penetrating and destroying this administration, taught them the emancipation or promotion of the Hutu people who was neither less nor more the idea of getting rid of all the Tutsis considered as a minority but dominating.
Some of the authors of the manifesto have also founded political parties in the months following its publication: in June, Kayibanda created the Muhutu social movement (which became the Parmehutu in 1959), and in November Habyarimana founded the association for Social promotion of mass (APROSOMA). These were the first channels for the dissemination of the Genocide ideology of the Tutsis and which began to be implemented in Rwanda in 1959 where Rwandan Tutsis were executed, many others forced in exile.
It is also this ideology that was taught to the Burundian Hutus who were in Rwanda either as refugees or students and who set up parties like ‘’Palipehutu’’ and ‘’UBU’’ based on which the FRODEBU was born and the FDD and CNDDFD which is in power today in Burundi.
It should also be noted that some Hutus have always tried to copy and paste of what was done in Rwanda in 1959; This justifies the different political crises – ethnic which have always shaken the country to date, including the genocide of the tutsis planned and executed by certain Hutus of Frodebu in 1993 (see report of the Nu S/1996/682 of the August 22, 1996).
URN Hitamwoneza once again reminds Burundian and the international community that Burundi is today led by people who have only in their veins the ideology of genocide and who always seek all the possible means of implementing it. It is for this reason that they always surround themselves with Rwandan genocidaires who committed the irreparable in 1994 by refusing the outstretched hand of Kigali power to resume exchanges between the two countries whose respective peoples have so much needs. We repeat to all those who want to hear us that it is impossible to think of peace for all and development in a country under the yoke of such leaders haunted by revenge and exclusion. It is necessary to think quickly of the effective strategies of getting rid of it, if not, the poorest country on the planet risks seeing its population die by masse of famine and diseases.
