Banda to help Rwanda arrest genocide suspects

afrol News, 19 January - Zambian President Rupiah Banda has announced plans to back President Paul Kagame's government in identifying and arresting the 1994 genocide suspects who may have fled to Zambia as refugees.

According to a statement issued by Rwandan Presidency after a closed door meeting between President Banda and President Kagame on Monday afternoon in the capital Kigali, the two leaders have committed to help each other in prosecuting the genocide suspects.

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

However, Zambia had denied the reports, saying it had offered vital information to the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda directly and through the International Committee on the Great Lakes region, to ensure that genocide suspects were handed over to prosecutors.

President Banda flew to Kigali Sunday evening for a two-day state visit. The agenda given for Mr 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.

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 also testify for their defense in February.
