The Global Campaign for Rwandans’ Rights condemns in the strongest possible terms the assassination of Colonel Patrick Karegeya an opposition activist and Rwanda's former spy chief in South Africa on New Year ’s Day 2014.
The Global Campaign for Rwandans’ Human Rights is also very concern about continuous abductions, assassinations and assassination attempts of Rwandan opposition activists, human rights advocates and journalists in Rwanda and abroad.
Furthermore we are also deeply disturbed by President Paul Kagame's and other Rwandan government official’s comments that appeared to endorse and celebrate Karegeya’s murder.
The Global Campaign for Rwandans’ Human Rights call on governments’ to protect Rwandan refugees, particularly political and human rights activists against those on going threats against them.
The Global Campaign for Rwandans’ Human Rights hopes that the South African police will be able to shed light on to the murder of Col. Karegeya and to bring the perpetrators to justice.
