Samputu dismisses IBUKA's 'Negationist' accusations

Rwandan singer, Jean Paul Samputu, on Tuesday, scoffed at allegations that he's a negationist. The accusations were made by Theodore Simburudari, while addressing thousands of mourners during the 15th anniversary of the 994 Genocide against the Tutsi.

"He must have misinterpreted the message. I have never forced anyone to forgive, or repent whatsoever. The message was totally out of my own experience," Samputu said Tuesday afternoon at The New Times offices during the interview.
