The Tanzanian government is again providing a platform for Agathon Rwasa and aggressively promoting his agenda. A few days ago Rwasa held a press conference in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania
. Once again, no attempt was made by the Tanzanian authorities to arrest him over his involvement in the August 2004 Gatumba massacre
, and the hundreds of other atrocities for which he is responsible. Once again, the FNL leader made hollow promises about a purported willingness to end the killings and seek the path of peace. And again, Reuters and other news agencies have failed to make any mention of the FNL's ongoing atrocities
, presenting Rwasa simply as a political leader.
