Abstract: Private Homepage of Prof. Kimenyi (1948-2010), who was teaching Linguistics, Ethnic Studies and African Languages at the California State University, Sacramento. At the same time, he was the president of Amahoro, one of the main opposition parties to the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) of Kagame. As Kimenyi himself formerly was in the RPF, he was not without controversy.
