The President of Rwanda, Paul Kigame, has for the first time been directly implicated in the killing of his predecessor, Juvenal Habyarimana. A French judge has recommended that Kigame be brought before the UN International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, which sits in Tanzania, to answer charges. International arrest warrants have been issued for nine of Kigame’s entourage, including the head of the country’s army. Kagame has always denied any involvement in the incident, which triggered Africa’s worst genocide of modern times. As a serving head of state, an arrest warrant cannot be issued in Kigame’s name.
