Philibert Muzima, a survivor and author of ”# Imbibé de leur sang, gravé de leurs noms ” brings us another thought provoking article: Épître d_Élie ou les jérémiades d_un génocidaire impénitent. In this piece, Muzima discusses a story of a genocide-convicted inmate from his home town who recently wrote to Pope Francis NOT for repentance of his transgression against the 6th God-commandment but for something else shockingly different.
The inmate’s name is Elie Ndayambaje. He was a mayor of Muganza commune, a district in the southern part of Rwanda. Elie Ndayambaje was sentenced to 47 years behind the bars for genocide crimes by the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for #Rwanda (UNICTR). Having exhausted all legal remedies, he sent an open letter to Pope Francis. The letter was signed from the Arusha prison (Tanzania) on good Thursday 2016.
