Rwanda, and Corporate Sustained Catastrophe by Keith Harmon Snow (Part 2)
But Rwanda pimps its sanitized image through numerous celebrities. In 2007,
actress Natalie Portman joined other global celebrities to name baby mountain
gorillas for the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund in Virunga National Park; actress
Daryl Hannah has also played that role. Actress Sigourney Weaver is officially
tied to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund. William Taliaferro Close, the father of
actress Glen Close was for many years the personal physician for Zaire’s
president Joseph Mobutu. Ewan McGregor also boosts Rwanda’s image by traveling
there in league with the regime.
The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund and Jane Goodall Institute are two big profit-based ‘conservation’ NGOs directly tied to militias involved in extortion, land theft and other organized crime in North Kivu province. Jane Goodall is currently a United Nations Messenger of Peace but she is so busy giving “Save the Chimp” lectures worldwide that she doesn’t know what she is talking about, and is blind to the crimes that the Jane Goodall Institute is committing, in her name, in Congo.
A number of other big international names, including Quincy Jones, and the CEOs of Starbucks, Microsoft, Google and CISCO, have previously visited Rwanda on business missions. Kagame’s strategy of surrounding himself with big business to shield his regime against criticisms or indictments for war crimes and acts of genocide has paid off. Big business leaders, business web sites and public relations campaigns the world over describe Paul Kagame as ‘The Entrepreneur President.’
