FRIDAY’S GRATITUDE: The people at the funeral of Kizito Mihigo

Text by Mrs. Ariane Mukundente

Friday’s Gratitude is back after the mourning of Kizito Mihigo. Following the assassination of our “saint Mihigo”, I would like to dedicate this Friday’s gratitude to all those brave people who accompanied him until his burial on February 22, 2020.

In his book Kizito Mihigo said: “deeply I am not afraid, on the contrary. I am ready to live what will happen because in my song I have already given birth to most of what has been weighing on my heart for a long time. They can do whatever they want. But I’m stressing out because I don’t know when and how it’s going to happen.”

And there you have it, the courage and greatness of this man. This courage he transmitted to those people (see the photo) who faced the fear of the regime to accompany him from the church to the cemetery.

You remember that even his artist friends abandoned him except the brave Karasira Aimable. Even abroad many people were afraid to attend mass. I do not understand!

Who gave the watchword, felt by Rwandans around the world not to accompany Kizito? Wasn’t the reported cause of death that he committed suicide? Why were you afraid to pay homage to him, then? Because no one believed that lie. By being afraid of reprisals from power, we automatically accused him. And the latter, he did not see that by sowing terror through his newspapers and his henchmen after the death of Kizito, he accused himself.

Like Jesus on the cross, Kizito Mihigo was not abandoned by the common people who always loved him. This is where these people showed their power.

Machiavelli said that whoever controls people’s fear becomes the master of their souls.

There are people who have chosen to be slaves to others by choosing to be afraid of them. It is indeed their choice.

But what they don’t know is that he who rules by fear is the most fearful of all.

People don’t know the power they have over him.

Let’s pay tribute to these brave people who accompanied their idol, Kizito Mihigo, until the end. They are real heroes of Rwanda. Probably they were afraid like everyone else, but they had the courage to defeat the fear, hence their heroism!

  11. First of all I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you
    don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.

    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying
    to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
