Dr. Bizimana asserts that the Congolese regime is endorsing the proliferation of ’Tutsiphobia’ on social media as part of a manifest plan to incite and execute a genocide against the Tutsi community.
He points out that this animosity towards Tutsis is not a new phenomenon in the DRC, recalling historical instances such as the 1998 statements by Yerodia Abdoulaye Ndombasi, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the DRC, who advocated for the extermination of Tutsis. Ndombasi had likened Tutsis to "insects" and "vermin" to be eradicated.
Bizimana draws parallels between Ndombasi’s statements and derogatory terms like Inyenzi (cockroaches), inzoka (snakes), and inda (lice) used against Tutsis on the RTLM radio and television in 1993 and 1994.
He also highlights that despite Belgium issuing an arrest warrant against Ndombasi in 2002 for incitement to hatred, the DRC regime protected him until his death in 2019, and he never faced prosecution for his actions.
