From Watchdogs To Traitors

In this compelling book, I delve into the enigmatic world of Rwanda's media, uncovering the truth that lies beneath its operation. As my journey unfolds, I come face to face with the startling realization that the less I knew, the more I believed, while the more I learned, the closer troubles approached.

Throughout my short but eventful career, I played a pivotal role in revolutionizing Rwanda's media landscape, championing professional investigative journalism and tirelessly advocating for its existence, even at great personal cost.

Within these pages, I recount the extraordinary transformation of Rwanda's media, shedding light on the preeminent change that has shaped its history. I lay the groundwork for the emergence of professional investigative journalism, highlighting its significance in raising awareness and fostering a genuine connection with the audience.

Moreover, I navigate the treacherous waters of persuading those "In Charge" to embrace this new form of journalism, rife with its inherent risks and challenges.

However, my passion for the truth and unwavering commitment to journalism exacted a heavy toll. I expose the harrowing truth about how journalists themselves can betray the very public they are duty-bound to serve, leading to a pervasive erosion of press freedom.

I share the intimate details of my personal journey, recounting the tremendous sacrifices I made, which ultimately propelled me into a relentless pursuit of truth. Despite enduring multiple arrests, extrajudicial actions, and unyielding opposition, I resolutely returned to my craft, refusing to be silenced.

Within these pages, I pull back the curtains on the machinery of misinformation, offering a firsthand account of its inner workings, the puppeteers who pull the strings, and their ulterior motives.

I bear witness to a system that operates above the law, highlighting the complicity of NGOs and civil societies who have themselves betrayed the very fabric of society they purportedly serve.

By delving into the annals of Rwanda's media history, I provide valuable context both before and after the tragic 1994 genocide against the Tutsi.

Through a deeply personal lens, I recount the trials and tribulations of my journalistic career, offering an unfiltered and uncensored account of the events that unfolded before my eyes.

I expose the assault on one of journalism's fundamental principles: telling the truth. The book unravels the complex interplay between my life, my career, the misinformation factory, and the powerful forces that drive the production of the fake news that permeates narratives about Rwanda.

Within the pages of "From Watchdogs to Traitors": readers will embark on a gripping journey, uncovering the intricate tapestry of Rwanda's media world. Ultimately, it is a testament to the enduring quest for truth in the face of adversity and the unwavering commitment to upholding the principles of journalism.

"From Watchdogs To Traitors" is coming soon.
