From: Concerned Congolese people and friends
Mr. Kagame is one of the main players in the death of over 5 million people in the D.R.Congo.
We are here expressing our anger and rage because of the decision by The Africa-America Institute to present to President Kagame the award, even when it is honoring the people of Rwanda .
Here are some of our recommendations for the award:
- Find a survivor of the genocide to receive the award on behalf of the people of Rwanda .
- If the time does not allow to do no 1, have the ambassador of Rwanda to the United Nations or his or her representative receive it.
- Or just postpone the award for a period when Mr. Kagame will not be president or the only possible recipient of the award on behalf of the people.
Mr. Kagame if wise enough will not want to be present at a ceremony when he knows the Congolese that hold him responsible for the death, rape, and other atrocities of a father, mother, brother, sister, husband, wife, child and other countrymen will be waiting outside and inside to express themselves in this nation of freedom.
Of those who are going to be in the room, we have Congolese and friends of the Congo that do not have Congolese sounding names and have a skin color that is different from most people in the Congo.
We will stop our actions only when your website will announce on its home page that Mr. Kagame will no longer be at the ceremonies. Other wise we make it a duty to express to The Africa-America Institute and to the International community what we think of your organization every time we have the chance to do so.
We know that you understand that this is in the name of those who were raped, those who were brutalized like mere objects, and those who died because of decisions and direct orders of Mr. Kagame.
Hope to see you cooperate with human rights in the world

In spite of all the attrocities that Paul Kagame is responsible in Rwanda and in the Republique Democratic of Congo, costing million of lifes widely reported by the media, the Amnesty International and other Human Rights organizations, Africa-America Institute is granting its 21st Annual Award for African National Achievement to none else but President Paul Kagame, on behalf of the People of Rwanda. Ambassador Andrew Young is the Chairman of the event.
This is a disgrace to African and African American people.
We urge the great people of the United States and the Congolese community in particular to show their dismay by protesting in New York and elsewhere on Wenesday, September 14, 2005, 6:00 PM - 11:00 PM. Following is the Africa-America Institute press release for the event: AFRICA-AMERICA INSTITUTE'S 21st ANNUAL AWARD DINNER
We will present the AAI Award for African National Achievement to President Paul Kagame, on behalf of the People of Rwanda. In just 10 years, the Rwandan people have moved from genocide and anarchy and economic viability; progressed toward democratization and good governance, strengthened enterprise and entrepreneurship; and made great strides in the field of education.
While the world remember and draw lessons from the Rwanda's tragic recent history, we also should aknowledge an extraordinary progress--progress that gives cause for optimism about the future of the African continent.
