The Rwandan rebels of National Liberation Forces have appointed a new spokesperson after the arrest of its former spokesperson Maj Callixte Nsabimana aka Sankara.
Capt Hermani Nsengimana is the new rebel publicist.
He was born in the Rwandan Southern province.
” I hold a post graduate diploma in Business Administration from Amity University in India,” he said in an interview with Eagleonline.
Sankara before his arrest said they had no option but to fight President Paul Kagame, who he described as “a dictator and murderer”.
In an interview with Eagle online before his arrest, Maj Sankara said the kidnap of refugees, harassing of the opposition and lack of freedom of expression are the reasons why his group has launched an armed struggle against the Kigali regime in Nyungwe National Park in Rwanda near Burundi border.
“MRCD and our FLN we are a revolutionary movement, we are fighting for democracy! Kagame and his junta they are killing, torturing, kidnapping, non-freedom of expression, non-independent media, opposition leaders some of them are in jail for nothing, thousands of Rwandans are refuges in different countries most of them fear to lose their lives,” he said.
Mouvement Rwandais pour le Changement démocratique [MRCD] is the political and FLN is the armed wing of the a coalition of three political parties, PDR Ihumure headed by Paul Rusesabagina, CNRD headed by Gen Wilson Irategeka and RRM headed by Major Callixte Sankara that have launched an armed struggle against Kagame.
