I bet Leon Mugesera never anticipated it would all end this way. On a private jet, no less.
After abusing and misusing the Canadian justice system for almost two decades, this unrepentant criminal is about to face Rwandan justice.
The flight to Kigali will surely be the greatest test Mugesera has had to face since that infamous 1992 vitriolic speech of his where he called for the extermination of all Tutsi. One would assume that Mugesera will get in touch with his conscience as he approaches Kigali. But the man has shown no remorse all these years. At 59, he will have many years to reach deep within himself to come to terms with his evil nature.
The next time we see Mugesera, he will be in his jail-issued pink uniform. Psychologists say that pink makes one ponder one’s actions and thoughts. Well, let’s see if this will work on Mugesera.
Hooray to Canada, for upholding the rule of law and sending the message forth : Canada is no haven for war criminals.
To others on the run, your time will come. To the man in Paw Paw — and you know who you are — I say, get your house in order, because you are next.
