About us

Welcome to the Rwanda National Congress - RNC.

As an introduction to your exploration of the different facets of our organization, it is my pleasure to briefly present to you the vision that motivates our political commitment as well as
the main ideological and structural bases on which the RNC is based.

The deep aspiration of the members of the RNC and its leadership is to put an end to the serious socio-political crises that have become endemic in Rwanda and to transform the
country into a rule of law, respectful of human rights and international conventions, favoring sustainable and inclusive economic development. It is this ideal that inspired our motto of
Peace, Unity, and Freedom, three essential conditions for the citizens of a country to realize their full potential, but of which the totalitarian regime of Kigali deprived the Rwandan people.

To definitively put an end to the dangerous strategies of seizing and maintaining power through the antagonization of ethnic groups, RNC promotes consensual democracy as the form of political system best suited to Rwandan society. We are firmly convinced that the equal representation of Hutu and Tutsi in the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of
government as well as in the law enforcement agencies and other security organs will prevent the balance of power from tilting to one side or the other. We are also committed to the
establishment of an active policy of inclusion of the Twa, the most economically and politically disadvantaged minority group, in decision-making bodies. In this way, all components of the Rwandan population will be reassured, shape their common destiny together, and will be able to look to the future with confidence and serenity.

At the organizational level, RNC is officially represented by formal structures in ten countries spread across Africa, North America, and Europe. Since its founding on December 12, 2010, to date, its members reflect Rwandan society in all its diversity and the consensual democracy that it advocates for Rwanda constitutes its mode of operation. Likewise, from the first days of its foundation, RNC has moved into a dynamic of collaboration with other Rwandan opposition organizations. Currently, it is one of the four political organizations that form the Rwandan Opposition Platform P4, along with the Amahoro – People Congress, United Democratic Forces (FDU) – Inkingi, and Social Party (PS) – Imberakuri. We have the firm certainty that the combined efforts of countless freedom-loving people will ultimately triumph over the tyranny of the totalitarian regime of the Rwandan government and will open to the Rwandan people and the populations of the Great Lakes region a new era of peace and prosperity.

I hope that these few elements will help you gain a deeper understanding of the Rwandan National Congress.
