Tanzanian Foreign Minister Bernard Membe has wondered at Rwanda's strange atitude to over react on a simple advice given in good faith on how to engage and find amicable solution to negative forces in Eastern DRC, saying it is up to Rwandan Government to accept or turn down the advice.
The Foreign Minister also stated categorically that the government will not move even an inch to apologize to Rwanda since what Presdent Jakaya Mrisho Kikwetesaid in Ethiopia was still valid and the most workable aproach to neutralize the negative forces in Eastern DRC including FDLR.
For the last one week a section of Rwandan government officials, including the Country Foreign Minster, Madam Mushakiwabo attacked President Kikwete to be pro 1994 genocide instigators saying there was no way Rwandan government could engage rebels linked the 1994 Rwandan genocide.
Speaking before the full Parliament in Dodoma yesterday, the visibly irked Minister wondered as to why Rwanda was making lots of politics with a simple advice which it is within their powers to accept or turn down if wanted to.
Using the famous quotation used once by the Former Israel Prime Minister, Yizak Rabin Mr Membe said "We negotiate peace with our enemies not our friends" adding that" there is no need for Rwanda to sound an alarm for the advise given in the open table in Ethiopia."
