Murder on The Ghan.

I was travelling on the Ghan, the luxurious overnight train that crosses Australia, from Adelaide to Darwin. For most people, it is a fantastic way to experience the Australian outback, but to me, it was something else. I was here on a mission.

I am Samantha Nyamwasa and the sole survivor from my family of the Rwandan genocide in 1994. I travelled on this train to kill Patrick Bagosora, the man who murdered my family and avoided justice through living in Australia under a fake identity.

I finished my drink in the luxurious restaurant carriage, and I told my husband Jakob that I needed to visit the bathroom.  I wasn’t, I had something far more important to perform. It was time for Patrick Bagosora to face justice.

I published my manifesto detailing Patrick’s crimes and collected the gun that I had bought illegally. After that, I turned on a live video feed to the internet and went to Patrick’s cabin. I opened the door and shot the man who had murdered my family, streaming the murder online. Jakob saw me and came running towards me.

“Samantha, what have you done!”

“I did it!”

“You did what?”

“I killed Patrick.”

“But why? Have you lost your mind?”

“No, he killed my family. I am infertile, and my family ends with me. This is my resolution.”

“So, what are we doing now?”

“I will do what Patrick should have done. I will own up to my crimes and take my punishment.”

Sometime later, the train stopped, and the police arrested me when we arrived at Alice Springs. A few days later, I received some great news. The autopsy revealed that Patrick Bagosora had died many hours before I shot him. Someone had poisoned Patrick the night before.
