Agathon Rwasa demands $12 million to stop killing people - Tanzania admits bankrolling the FNL

From the East African

The growing restlessness of the rebel leaders drove the countries involved in the regional initiative to arrange a meeting in Dar-es-Salaam last week in which the FNL leaders were persuaded to fulfil their obligations under the ceasefire agreement and return to Bujumbura.

Sources close to the process told The EastAfrican that it was made specifically clear to the rebels that their $12 million claim to, among others, clear war debts, would not be honoured under the terms of the deal.

Another source in the Tanzanian government also revealed to The EastAfrican that “it was made clear to the rebel leaders that they could not continue to lounge in the hotels here, while we paid all their bills and gave them a per diem.”

I wonder what would happen if the Families of the victims of Agathon Rwasa brutality would decide to be compensated for their loss.

In Burundi,the system and the international community seems to continue allowing criminals to be...honoured for their actions.

Poor families continue to suffer, People have died of hunger...while Agathon Rwasa is asking for $12million,how sad and arrogant is that?

Let's note that the average salary in Burundi is estimated to be $150/year,my question is:what logic or fairness is there to continue robbing the poor and the most vulnerable to the race of power?

It is time that the international community honours some sense of moral values in this country that has been ravaged by war,stop feeding the criminals to oppress the victims.
