Something Big

Hassan Ngeze (CDR) wrote two articles in Kangura, both predicting that President
Habyarimana would die in March 1994.

There was a lot of talk about “something very big ” happening both in the intelligence community and in the national press, and also on the RTLM.

Then on 6th April 1994, President Juvenal
Habyarimana and President Cyrien Ntaryamira of Burundi were flying into Kigali when, at 20:23, the plane was shot down on its approach to Kigali airport.

By 21:15 roadblocks had been constructed throughout Kigali and houses were being searched.

Shooting began to be heard within an hour.

The death lists had been prepared in advance.
