stadium when they came under attack by hutu militia and during a ceremony at the genocide memorial praised rwandans for reuniting after the massacre inside story is coming up next on al-jazeera. it's a quarter of a century since rwanda was torn apart by a campaign of genocide that killed at least eight hundred thousand nine hundred since then the country's recovery is widely seen as an example of african potential but how much freedom do people there have lived of rwandans paying
2:22 am
a price for peace this is inside story. hello and welcome to the program i'm martin dennis now twenty five years ago the world watched as unimaginable atrocities were committed in the rwandan genocide at least eight hundred thousand people were slaughtered within one hundred days rwanda has since made a remarkable turnaround and is often portrayed today as a shining example of what can be achieved in africa when our president paul kagame has started one hundred days of commemorations by lighting a flame at the kid galley genocide memorial it's believed two hundred fifty thousand victims are buried at that site alone where president kagame he says
2:23 am
rwanda's recovery is a story of hope for the world you nineteen ninety four there was no talk on it. as. like the reveres from the splits so viruses. there on are ones. we're being left to give. their full give. and that is their forgiveness well since the genocide rwanda has emerged as a model for economic development it has one of africa's strongest economies growing by more than seven percent every year since two thousand it's now the second
2:24 am
easiest place to do business on the continent that's according to the world bank and it has more women politicians in parliament than anywhere else in the world part president kagame me has been criticised for becoming increasingly authoritarian he won a third term in twenty seventeen with ninety eight percent of the vote human rights watch says laws to control hate speech have been used to silence criticism of the government. all right let's introduce our guests now we have to run a gain z. who is a genocide survivor he fled rwanda in one thousand nine hundred seven and is chairman of the global campaign for rwandans human rights and we're not revealing his location for safety reasons from compiler in uganda we have andrew moore and who is a member of the presidential advisory committee of president gammy in london we
2:25 am
have phil clark an assistant professor specializing in african politics at so as the school of oriental and african studies at the university of london thank you all gentlemen for joining me today can i start with you renee we're not disclosing your location for your own security give us an idea of what has happened to you since you survived the genocide you've obviously arrived in the u.k. why do we have to keep your location secret. yes. in two thousand and eleven the york a security service was discovered as a solution or quote to conspire myself our unsought the two you know to take some measure for my six months my secure my security this. mission was brought was organized by that one a government because of my human right arctic is right thank you for that i have to become very careful about my real question ok let's put this now to andrew in camp
2:26 am
allah now this is a an accusation that is leveled pretty regularly at the government of poor guy me and that is that they relentlessly pursue dissidents even crossing international boundaries the the security forces in places as far afield as south africa and sweden have alerted people of their suspicions why is that but i think the enemies of the present government and the current government in one have been very successful at branding the government of rwanda as murderous i can tell you this if the government of rwanda through the security is correct and just that if the government of the united states would feel of the city its security is certain but also bin laden of course crossing the national borders to get a tourist and kill them. the third governments in the world to do that in that case the good want to be in the different from other governments so patrick callen here in south africa general. near mazar who has been shot three times not
2:27 am
dead seth senda shown that he was shot dead in nyrabia hutu politician and the journalist charles nga binay he was shot in camp all in twenty eleven and died these are all people who were plotting against the government of paul kagame me. for example i don't think we have any guess what so ever that it is the government of wonder who killed the people who have russian but is one of those we have it is an academic record. jerrold premier who are people called africa's world war and in that case he was personally working with the system in mobile is incomes of acquitting and invent one if the government of rwanda. because he was organising the respective against a country that i think again that's just your action ok coming to you phil now few countries in the world divide international opinion as much as rwanda on the one
2:28 am
hand it is the the miracle of rebirth after the the horrors of nine hundred ninety four and on the other hand it is an increasingly altera tarion regime who will stop at nothing to quell dissent both at home and abroad. i mean i think one of the reasons opinion on her wonders extremely divided is that the country itself is extremely complex on the one hand you have a country that has recovered remarkably well since ninety ninety four where we see a level of reconciliation between two at sea in hutu inside the country we see a socio economic development program that has cut across the ethnic divide these are enormous strides that this country has my since the genocide but at the signs on we also see i think some very worrying tendencies of a very controlling a state there are some significant problems at the level of national politics big
2:29 am
questions about democracy whether kidani will in fact leave the presidency now that he has changed the constitution to enable him to stay in power until twenty thirty four all of this is happening at the same time some enormous positives but some very worrying trends as well and it renee coming back to you as a real one don't you feels. too intimidated to go back home presumably do you not look at these wonderful achievements made by your country under the tutelage of pool could be in the government wonderful economic growth a great deal of reconciliation that has been widely lauded around the world i mean poll could go me has really made them some amazing achievements feel country. and to what they did when the government has done very good job in trying to portray themselves as a country which have been develop some sort of consideration times of economic
2:30 am
development but if you look too fucked that you can will to do reconsideration of course edition candle to be complete with zero to just go to twelve because that be noted or not a defect was just these people committed to genocide some have been been tried in a political maturity to try to survive as needed really very good justice they didn't get it in terms of the dumbest of the economy as well one done. show to have some good economy could have implemented but which a ton to be fake so they trying to have been trying to fake figures so the country that being progressive for example to give you one fucked their country for example they haven't they don't you can look to develop at that rate we don't have to sit and wonder how go two hundred twenty two hundred twenty one may go a tool for tricity which is a list done the hustle for the village of africa you can go to the ripples of that country at the top of it pretty in terms of the aid one that get one billion
2:31 am
dollars a and they get the same amount into taxes so that is not part of productive part of the the economy cut it so so a cut will cycle denies that is safety almost three thousand long as you know it could just as the government do going to be safe and you wanda. does through right but if you're trying to if you're trying to to to to criticize you have been your pride and k. so that the greatest situation to others and. all right so those are not a consideration is in our court because the argument all right can i can i'll come back to rene andree the kinds of things that have been expressed by renee are often repeated about the government of gummi can you understand why there is such concern about what appears to be an alarming path that is being trodden by those supporting porker garny do you understand why victor is that the polls of ninety eight percent
2:32 am
provoke a certain amount of alarm internationally. please remember but we need to understand who and in context i want for support and. looked at three o'clock look their course general said institutions of rwanda are designed to reflect the experience one has going through they're not designed to reflect some textbooks you're about to democracy in belgium or the united kingdom they respond to very specific historical and social events is a good one and even the process of the government or the fact that the reality you see the test of the pudding is in the eating if you look at the rate of economic change and one the level of social harmony in that country just yesterday twenty five years ago father killed son husband killed wife waif killed daughter neighbor killed a neighbor friend killed a friend i can tell you people it is difficult in a country in the world where is
2:33 am
a set it disintegrated at that little shop of his and within a blink of an an eye it has been a test you know and it is i hear what it is but it together that one has been successful in large part because it had that percy's institutions processes and procedures that are relevant to experience and andresen therefore you are to follow your argument then logically then we shouldn't even be expecting the wonder at this stage twenty five years on to be a pluralistic democratic society is that what you're suggesting. i'm suggesting that to wonder how not to be reproduced democratic society on the lanes we used to show those practices and procedures. of the limited kingdom or that it is that one does democracy or for very specific example there wasn't any that when they did this it's if you'll go under look at the institutions and procedures of bussing so what we have would you say that it's really if your book or movie the context of a name you live in you may think this is
2:34 am
a stalinist or he collaborated with him it is not that this means this subject to proceed doesn't have been pressed into airports around the world but was persuaded to say it's there for a specific historical reality context right i said i for one does his dishes that reflect the same right that i want to pluck up the structure in a textbook fill an abstract theory from a textbook models of democracy from from belgium of the united kingdom should not be applied to a country that is still interim or still just about post conflict twenty five years is no time at all what are we complaining about. look i don't think anybody's expecting rwanda to follow some textbook model here i think what we have to get to grips with in the rwandan case is that the society needed a very strong studies to be able to recover from the genocide in one thousand nine hundred four and i think we do have to attribute some substantial successes to kidani and to the rwandan patriotic front but this is a potty this is
2:35 am
a government that has systematically rebuilt the state and society from its lowest possible but even within the one by itself there is increasing disquiet about the lack of democratic space questions about how long a key dami will last this is not a set of ideas that is being imposed from the outside this is something that many rwandans themselves are saying now what is interesting i think when we in all the to listen to every day the wound is that many rwandans will cite look we on doubts italy have a standard of living today that we could not have imagined in one thousand nine hundred four and even many of my hutu respondents will say things like we don't particularly like it i mean we don't particularly like the tutsi dominated apia but we have to recognize that the apia of has delivered health care education social economic development in a way that we never would have imagined so even many every day who to
2:36 am
a say we recognize that a gang of assad let this go at the title of this not the same time at the same time they are also concerned about the fact that elections are clearly not free and fair that there is a clampdown on opposition voices that people have to be very very careful about what they say in public so they are not entirely black and white in their views people are saying we recognize this government has done some remarkable things but when will the day come when this political space begins to open up and we start to see a different brand of politics that is a question that i think many. every job or one dancer also oscar and i think andrew has got to reply to but but the point guys here is the point i think that fear is a label and remind that anecdotal stories listening to a fringe of opinion we can read and say that does not cause it to run and set in clear disability in my newspaper. had an international french international farm it's just to go and look you know important one eighty six percent of one said
2:37 am
elections are free and fair about eighty seven percent said in texas or great for of a symbol of freedom of the press freedom of expression they feel free now if an abstract your says one is going to feel free but the subject of the people involved in our coming subject includes through free then the viewer we have what in court the course of the problem one does understand that the un freedoms in the country but these and the freedoms. for that matter in a state that but a specific historic and social context are right and i definitely don't see an oppression don't let me let me say wrists lesser in a london letter in a coming in into that because according to andrew according to the poll that he commission not that long ago eighty six percent of rwandans feel that they elections are free and fair in his country what if you go back and take part. no no no one that they want to say will live on their government want them to say if they want to stay alive and or does you know does why i disagree with undo that one up
2:38 am
in the us the question is what do they want to answer because they know what will happen if they don't us would they don't the us or the government want them to say that's why you know i don't agree with sofie or you know feedback you know which going to be requested from london so that wanda and us win the finals i will go as in the one that was going to be out citing the same question question in terms of then democracy after the genocide said one national to be no photo you know that photo that the country on a contradiction to which has has experienced a general side a country which. has expressed that kind of suffering that people should do there should be a country were to teach the ward the whole prime it comes with democracy defeated too and the human right this this this this values and station so we have been installed just after the genocide and to teach the world how did all of those one have been fed by before that i'm really a country this is what it said on the senate it's a good one that can do and i can i get can i think you know what to do and how to
2:39 am
write sorry when a college kid i don't could i just ask you about one specific point one of the main missions of pool could gummy seems to be to to almost transcend try i think you'll agree that would have been absolutely vital for any country to recover from what it went through so that seems to have been achieved do you agree that he has managed to achieve a kind of amazing amount of reconciliation between the two major tribes of rwanda. good it could have done it but he missed the opportunity because he had just won a victory was just his according to his very quick people report to the u.n. human rights would be the cut on to government to the country must like a thousand on cells into a whole new who to put position all those who did what relation some of them within the government were to doubt quieted if i may have been disseminated daniel talking so all those population who are quiet and have no go to see if the just these very
2:40 am
wounded about what will my will might happen in the future the best solution would have done it to justice for everyone and that too would be hard for us to and do consideration and make to make make a sustainable peace because you cannot to just run a country we've all pretty pristine flooded parts of the population and no one just justice and he's told have shown you cannot prove or puts the duck under oath to do that's going to put in for a long time that's why we're calling always for that one out of government to try to do the justice for everybody to read it democrats say for you don't just let an engine come back and iraqis. yes let us use your income to practice rene is saying that one and afraid to speak against their government in the same opinion poll sixty six percent of london said the economic situation had looked improved over the previous year about seventy percent of the right and said that if somebody was arrested by the police some awful person can come and get them released the court
2:41 am
was but of course the suspects of the conduct of the police and the and government of what it was would happen with his responses but the weather where it would say so so it's not true that one of the spirit predicted and there are. no longer has no information of course chemical let me as of the second point you see democracy is a journey it is not an event we need to understand where it is what the coming from where has it reached and wages going that this is still a clock that country if you are caught if you want to run an engine into seven the government allegedly lied under oppression in order to assert it oh increasingly as the state has also dated the wonderbook state has moved away from repression increasingly towards the rights of scientists and that's why you see when you let let me jump in here just for you made i made that point i get your point i want to move you on that specifically to weigh you while you're in camp polar in the ugandan capital what's going on between rwanda and uganda the border is closed in
2:42 am
part some people are talking about the possibility of there being war between. seventy and camp all his effectively the goat father of the r.p.s. in rwanda what's gone wrong is this paul kagame is paranoia well i think that. the wound and uganda may be suffering what you call structural stressed in the sense that i get the sense of perhaps the rays of wonder instills fear in uganda you gotta be seen in the ways of rwanda is threats to our security threats to our position as a regional hegemonic military headman and therefore you've got. what you or structure rather yes structural suckage competition or i feel what you what do you make of the current situation between uganda and rwanda structural stress or structural repositioning of british society to competition according to andrew or
2:43 am
is this because at the heart of this dispute is apparently the position of so-called dissidents could go all the dissidents and the seventy not handing them over. look this in many ways martin goes back to your very first question about some of these rwandan figure is in the diaspora and in the rest of the region who are in fact mobilizing against the kid gobby regime you mention the likes of care a day or in cairo care a day is now being killed or is still alive that these activists who are actively wanting to overthrow the kidani regime in can dolly and have been very explicit about citing side part of the current antagonism between rwanda and uganda is really one does accusation that both the burundian and the ugandan governments are actively supporting kid ami's and to dolly's enemies in the wider region so i think when we talk about the difficulties in this region at the moment the tendency in the international press is to say that rwanda is the mind generator of all of these
2:44 am
