It's the conclusion by Filip Reyntjens. Kagame sparked the genocide with the attack on the former President's plane, and started a war on neighbouring Congo to plunder their resources. over 6 millions dead in Eastern Congo since 1996. No wonder that the Rwandan Ministry of Sport manages to sponsor an international cycling race with relatively high standard, which neighbouring countries cannot for the time being. I cannot enjoy this race, it disgusts me. :Neutral:

It is far from certain that the shooting of the plane was ordered by Kagame. But perhaps this is not the right place.
 
That's one of the problems of pro cycling. It goes a bit too well with national or regional branding, ie whitewashing.

At least the enthusiasm from the fans feels more genuine than in the Chinese races. But that could easily be a cultural thing.
