Kigali-U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon arrived on Tuesday in Rwanda, the United Nations said, following a dispute with the African nation over a leaked U.N. report saying its troops may have committed genocide.

U.N. spokesman Farhan Haq said Ban flew into the Rwandan capital Kigali on the unannounced visit. He would meet later on Tuesday with Foreign Minister Louise Mushikiwabo and would see President Paul Kagame on Wednesday, Haq said.

During the swearing in of President Kagame, were more than a dozen African Heads of states were in Kigali, Kagame shunned foreign agencies who want to give lessons on Rwandese about Human rights.
“We are tired of the people who criticize what we do, and give us what we did not do,” Kagame said
Mushikiwabo received Ban Ki-moon on air port to night where it’s said he will meet Kagame afternoon after the meeting with Rwanda’s foreign affairs minister.

Mushikiwabo said last week Rwanda is considering pulling out all its troops from U.N. peacekeeping missions, starting with Darfur in Sudan, because of its anger over the draft report.

The report, whose publication the United Nations has delayed until Oct. 1, said in the leaked draft that Rwandan troops may have committed genocide in the 1990s against Rwandan Hutus who had been driven into neighboring Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Rwanda has described that charge as malicious and ridiculous.

    Though the Agenda was not announced, I think the main discussion issue is the UN report. Why didn't they announce it officially? Is there anything to hide?

    Congratulations Robert for this unique blog. It's helpful
