Carine Kanimba survived Rwanda’s 1994 genocide, during which her father, Paul Rusesabagina, saved more than 1,200 people in his hotel. Today she is campaigning to free her father from a Rwandan gulag. Rusesabagina’s heroic feat was portrayed in the Hollywood film “Hotel Rwanda” but in 2020, the Belgian citizen and U.S. Permanent Resident was  forcibly rendered to Rwanda and imprisoned for speaking out against the tyranny of the man credited with ending the genocide: Paul Kagame. In 2021, Kanimba was identified as a victim of the Pegasus spyware, with Kagame’s regime suspected of being behind the attack.
