Kagame’s Stooge James Musoni Is Gone — His Life Is In Great Danger

BY DAVID HIMBARA (THE MEDIUM)
James Musoni is dumped
As of today (April 6, 2018) James Musoni was dumped by President Paul Kagame. This issue began with stories about Musoni’s extramarital affairs. We do not know what President Kagame will do to James Musoni after the latter was fired as Minister of Infrastructure. But we do know this — Musoni has been untouchable in Rwanda for a very long time. After dictator General Kagame himself, James Musoni was the most feared, and rightly so.

James Musoni was number two to the Kagames since 2000
Musoni has been Kagame’s stooge and thieving assistant since 2000.   Musoni was the only person to survive and retain high-level and cabinet positions for nearly two decades in the Kagame regime. MusoniI was the de facto head of the US$500 million Crystal Ventures – the ruling party’s business empire built on cronyism.
So what have we here?

As the saying goes, there is no honour among thieves – which obviously means that thieves will not be honorable. To expect good traits from thieves is rather foolish. If they steal from others and destroy other people’s lives they will do the same to each other. Kagame’s dumping of James Musoni amounts to the same thing – there is no honor lost. It is use and dump.

Who is James Musoni?

Kagame appointed Musoni to high-level positions and cabinet portfolios for 18 years. This is extraordinary — most Kagame ministers only last 2 years on the average. Here is Musoni path to power:
2000-2001, Musoni served as the Deputy Commissioner General of Rwanda Revenue Authority.
2001–2005, promoted to Commissioner General of Rwanda Revenue Authority.
2005–2005 State minister for Commerce, Industry and Investment Promotion, Tourism and Cooperatives.
2005–2006, Minister for Commerce, Industry and Investment Promotion, Tourism and Cooperatives.
2006–2009, Minister of Finance and Economic Planning.
2009–2014, Minister of Local Government.
2014–2018, Minister of Infrastructure.
Musoni is a deadman walking

Directly and indirectly, Musoni controlled everything in Rwanda on Kagame’s behalf. He was one-man appointing committee supporting Kagame to recruit even cabinet ministers. Musoni delivered emotional speeches to motivate and mobilize Rwandans for Kagame – and destroyed careers of people he disliked. Musoni considered himself as a successor to Kagame. But now he is a dead man walking.

Musoni’s life is in great danger

Lives of prominent people in Kagame’s Rwanda typically end in one of three ways – prison, exile, or mysterious death. In a perpetual struggle to please Kagame, those who fall out of favor end very badly. Working for Kagame, especially people like Musoni who was close to legal and illegal power and money, is particularly an occupational hazard. 
As we speak, we do not know what became of James Gatera who until recently was the executive chairman of Crystal Ventures, and before that, CEO of the Bank of Kigali. These two organizations are the centre of Kagame’s legal and illegal powers. Musoni’s role in Kagame’s world puts the life of the former crony in great danger.
