HOPE FOR RWANDA: Conversations with Laure Guilbert and Herve Deguine
‘Readers of this book have a chance to share [the author’s] journey and, as they deepen their understanding of the Rwandan tragedy, to renew their own commitment to the ideals of justice, peace, and reconciliation that fired the spirit of André Sibomana.’ Alison Des Forges, from the Foreword
André Sibomana was a remarkable man. A Rwandan Catholic priest, journalist and leading human rights activist, he was one of the very few independent voices to speak out against the abuses perpetrated by past and present governments in Rwanda.
Hope for Rwanda is his personal testimony and the first major English-language account of the events surrounding the 1994 genocide in Rwanda by a Rwandan national. Sibomana offers a personal reflection on the issues surrounding the genocide, as well as confronting many of the preconceptions and stereotypes that are evident in the West’s portrayal of the genocide. In an acclaimed testimony, Sibomana addresses controversial topics such as the role of the church in the genocide, the failure of the international community to prevent massacres and the human rights record of the new Rwandan government. Despite the inhumanity of the massacres and the endless suffering of the Rwandan people, Sibomana offers a strong vision of hope for the future of his country and for the future of humanity.
Hope for Rwanda was published to great acclaim in France. This English edition includes a new postscript which describes the circumstances of Sibomana’s death and an updated chronology and additional chapter by the translator which summarises some of the more recent developments in Rwanda.
'For those of us concerned with the brewing violence in our own societies (and where it might lead), for those interested in the politics of contemporary Africa or what happene in small Rwanda in the 1990s,.. for those active in building organizations for human rights and peac, Hope for Rwanda is a crucial, and ultimately inspiring text.'Peace News
