The Minister of Foreign Affairs and East African Community, Louise Mushikiwabo has said that France will never succeed in its quest for burying evidence of its leaders’ role in the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi.

Mushikiwabo who was speaking Sunday to different French journalists in Kigali said France has for so long been characterized with insolent behaviors on matters concerning Rwanda.

“We have observed some behaviors, sorry to call them insolent, but we Rwandans today require that they admit their role in genocide,” she said.

“I can tell you that France will not succeed in this struggle they are fighting, it is indeed baseless. You can shield some evidence, but there are others you can’t. So, we recalled our ambassador because we are concerned with these endless accusations,” Mushikiwabo explained.

In July, France launched fresh investigations in the shooting down of Habyarimana’s plane.

French courts called Defence Minister Gen. Kabarebe in France by December to testify about the shooting down of a plane that was carrying President Juvenal Habyarimana in April 1994 which prompted Rwanda to recall Jacques Kabale, her ambassador to France.
