Here is a shock. The Rwandan ruling party’s conglomerate, Crystal Ventures Limited, has a direct link to Bill Jefferson Clinton (WJC). In the leaked emails, we see worried Clinton staffers seeking to independently vet the equity partners in a project called Mount Meru Soyco. Besides Clinton foundation equity in this project, the following partners are highlighted: Mount Meru Middle East (25%), Crystal Ventures (20%), Social Security Funds of Rwanda (20%), and Kayonza District (10%).
The leaked emails show something else -Clinton staffers are deeply worried not only about equity partnerships just noted, but also WJC’s relationship with Kagame. The following very specific reputation worries feature in a series of exchanges among Clinton staffers:
* “How is WJC’s name is being used with respect to our work in Rwanda?”
* “How is WJC’s name being used in conversations with Kagame?”
* “Would it be appropriate to ask…, given the sensitivity of WJC’s relationship with Kagame?”
* “…are we entirely informed of the work being done in Rwanda…?”
Hopefully future leaks will reveal the current relationship between Clinton, Crystal Ventures Ltd, and Kagame himself.
