Mukuralinda elucidated that since the announcement of this program by both countries following the agreement signed in April 2022, a coalition of UK politicians, alongside individuals advocating for "racial extremists, including those implicated in the Genocide against the Tutsi," has emerged to launch attacks against Rwanda.
Opponents argue that Rwanda lacks the capacity to accommodate migrants, a claim Mukuralinda dismissed, emphasizing that the country already hosts over 130,000 refugees. He underscored that the criticism against Rwanda based on the migration agreement has emboldened extremists aiming to undermine Rwanda’s security and the reconciliation of its people.
Citing a document circulated by a Genocide denier and trivializer, Norman Nishimwe, who leads the Jambo Asbl organization, Mukuralinda highlighted how some members of Parliament relied on it to cast doubt on Rwanda’s development. He pointed out that Nishimwe falsely claims there were two genocides in Rwanda, aiming to sanitize those involved in the planning and execution of the Genocide against the Tutsi.
Mukuralinda revealed, "This group provided a platform to leaders of the FDLR genocidaire group, consisting of murderers who fled Rwanda in 1994. These genocidaires have been involved in deadly attacks in Rwanda, seeking to overthrow the government that liberated the country and continues to transform it."
Addressing politicians opposing the program, Mukuralinda urged them to scrutinize their alliances, emphasizing that they are associating with genocide deniers and individuals advocating for violence and hatred, seeking to plunge the country back into chaos and conflict.
He reiterated Rwanda’s remarkable economic growth and the improved lives of its citizens, with life expectancy doubling to an average of 70 years.
