8:32 pm
context i went for support and. looked at two o'clock look there was genocide institutions of rwanda are designed to reflect the experience one has gone 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 a set it disintegrated at that little shop of his and within a blink of an an eye it has been obsessed you know andrea it is i hear what it is but it together that the wonder has been successful in large part because it had
8:33 pm
that percy's institutions processes and procedures that are relevant to experience and andresen there for you 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. suggesting that the wonder cannot be produced democratic society on the lanes shows practices and procedures. of the myth that it can do or that it is it's one does democracy refer very specifically i don't give an example there wasn't any little thing they did that says if you'll go under look at the institutions and procedures of bussing so we have what you think it's really if your book or movie the context of a name you live in you may think this is a stalinist or he collaborated with him it is not that this means this subject to proceed doesn't have been pressed around the world but was persuaded that sets
8:34 pm
reflect a specific historical reality a context right answer for one does his dishes affect the same right it's a multiplex an upper 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 a 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 good gami and to the rwandan patriotic front this is a potty this is a government that has systematically rebuilt the state and society from its lowest
8:35 pm
possible but even within the one by itself there is increasing disquiet about the lack of democratic space questions about how long a kid 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 wonder is that many rwandans will say look we aren't doubted lee 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 a say we recognize that a gang of assad let this go until this not the same time at the same time they are
8:36 pm
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 day over 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 does not cause it to run and set in clear disability in my despair but i have an international french international farm it's just to go and look you know important one eighty six percent of one said 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
8:37 pm
abstract your says one is going to be free but the subject of the people involved in our coming subject excellence are free then the viewer we have what in court the course of the problem the wonders understand that the un freedoms in the country but these and the freedoms. for that matter in a state that but specific historic and social context are right and i definitely don't see an oppression when i let a legislator wrists lesser in a london ledger 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 they want to stay alive does you know that's why i disagree with undo that they want an up in the us the question is what do they want to answer because they know what will happen if they don't us would be done to us what the government wanted them to say that's why you know i don't agree with sofie or you know feedback you know
8:38 pm
which going to be requested from london so that wanda and us will define those i will go as in the one that was going to be outside in the same question question themselves 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 gentle side a country which. has experience that kind of suffering that people should do there should be a country where to teach the ward the whole prime it comes with democracy defrayed and the human right this this this this values and station so we have been installed just after the genocide in the fish of the world how did all of those one have been fed by before they got on really a country this is what he said all this in a very good one that can do then i can i get can i do you know doing it right sorry i'm in a college could i get can i just ask you about one specific point one of the main missions of paul could gummy seems to be to to almost transcend tried i think
8:39 pm
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 as just his according to this very quickly bull report to the u.n. human rights would be the cut on to government to do come into the house much like a thousand on cells into a hole know 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 wounded about what will my them will not 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
8:40 pm
consideration and make to make make a sustainable peace because you cannot 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 produce the. dude that's going to put in a photo in time that's why we're quoting always pull 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 know if you are to come to practice renee is saying that the one and afraid to speak against their government in the same opinion poll sixty six percent of london said the economic situation had not 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 easily come and get them released the court was but of course the suspects over the conduct of the police and the and government of rwanda was not happy with his responses but the writers
8:41 pm
were able to say so so it's not true that one of the spirit to be did that and that i say all right ok yes or no longer has long for question of course chemical has 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 weight is going that this is to be a clock that country if you're 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 consolidated the wonder of the 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 way you while you're in camp polar in the ugandan capital what's going on between rwanda and uganda the border is closed impart some people are talking about the possibility of there being war between. seventy and camp all his effectively the goat father of the other p.f.
8:42 pm
in rwanda what's gone wrong is this paul kagame is paranoia well i think that the. ground and uganda may be suffering what you call structural stress 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 head to mali military headman and therefore you've got. what you or structure rather yes structural suckage competition or i feel what what's 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 is this because of the holes 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
8:43 pm
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 saying 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 problems i think we need to have a much more honest and open discussion about the role that many of rwanda's neighbors are also playing in the deep deliberate destabilization of the country
8:44 pm
right specifically in the case of uganda one thing that has been very clear in the last ten or fifteen years is that most seventy has always wanted to play this almost patronize ing role towards kidani he's wanted to claim ownership or the remarkable recovery that that rwanda has made but over the time i think what we're one that has also done it is to unveil the problems that are taking place in uganda especially in socio economic terms and so uganda i think over time has become incredibly jealous of the stability of the price in the development that rwanda has has enjoyed and so we are now seeing i think uganda doing its utmost to try to destabilize the situation inside rwanda so we really need a regional dialogue not what's going to jump him because we have run out of time i want to give the last word to you renee have you had anything today and please be brief have you had anything today not discussion that would persuade you to go back
8:45 pm
home to rwanda and take part in the political landscape. and for trying to know what you know one day is big risk increasingly becoming in a pretty secretive regime suppressing all you know dissent is it distant force so there's an openness where you know it was somebody wanted freedom mechanical and tried because there were you know people didn't even dissented it or put a position to this i've been killed or did last two months and the other the bin does the disappearing so that there's a whole country which democratic ideals in terms of the man right is traveling all right thank you very much indeed all three of you thank you so much ran a mcgann's a talking to us from an undisclosed location and room when talking to us from the ugandan capital kampala and of course phil clark talking to us from london thank you very much indeed now if you want to see the program again you can go to the website al-jazeera dot com should you want more discussion you can get to our facebook page at facebook dot com for slash a.j.
