The Ossington Circle Episode 30: Crimes of the Rwandan Patriotic Front with Judi Rever

By Justin Podur

I talk to Judi Rever, author of the important new book In Praise of Blood: The Crimes of the Rwandan Patriotic Front. We start with the inception of the military force that would become the RPF in 1980s Uganda and follow it through the civil war and genocide to contemporary Rwanda and the Congo. The mind-boggling scale of deaths and atrocities of the many Central African wars and the central role of Paul Kagame are the focus of this interview.
