Dear Mr. President

Dear Mr. President

Thank you for the recent #CitizenOutreach tour, which brought to the general public eye what many of us, your people, already knew: below a certain level, governance in Rwanda is mostly failing the people. Recently, on social media, you were tagged in several threads from Rwandan citizens, desperately trying to hold “public servants” accountable. I say “public servants”, because these people are public servants only in theory. In practice they are nothing more than presidential servants. Otherwise, why would it…

How To Phase Out Motos And Improve The Lives of Millions in #Rwanda

How To Phase Out Motos And Improve The Lives of Millions in #Rwanda

A few days ago, I vented on Twitter about my frustration with the situation of motorcycle (motos) taxis in this country. As with my previous threads about motos – I said phase out. Unfortunately, this was Twitter and with reading comprehension levels being what they are on that platform, Rwandans on Twitter (#RwOT) read “phase out” to somehow mean “ban“. What follows is a sampling of the reactions to my thread about phasing out motos:     One of my…

The Rwandan Model is an African Model

The Rwandan Model is an African Model

The 29th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of the African Union (AU) held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in July 2017, elected Rwanda to lead the Union for a period of one year, in 2018. The 30th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of the Heads of State and Government, that convenes in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, from January 28 to 29, will therefore be chaired by President Paul Kagame in his capacity as Chairman of the Union. He takes over from his…

The East African’s content-free opinion piece on #Rwanda

The East African’s content-free opinion piece on #Rwanda

An opinion piece published in The East African on Tuesday 12th September has brought that paper to a new low: according to Christopher Kayumba “Kagame faces two critical challenges in the next seven years” I am used to reading this type of output in western publications, but when African outlets regurgitate the same stale slop it hurts. Let’s go over these opinions, piece by piece. Right off the bat, the title already disqualifies the post. When you read “Kagame faces…

#NiWowe! #NiWowe! #NiWowe! (#KagameInauguration)

This year, 2017, has been a very special one for me, so far. So many wonderful things have happened. I got married! I’m expecting a baby! I voted for the first time in my life! And today, 18th August, I attended the Presidential Inauguration of my greatest hero: His Excellency President Paul Kagame! I arrived at Amahoro Stadium at 8:30AM. The crowd was hype, the excitement was electric! The stadium was packed! Music was playing from a stage below, people…

The underlying racism behind western media’s anti-Rwanda hysteria

The underlying racism behind western media’s anti-Rwanda hysteria

The implicitly racist language with which western media and “NGOs” spread their anti-Rwanda hate, the closer Rwanda gets to the 2017 presidential elections is deeply disturbing. There is a lie that is being pushed in western media, one of an alleged “climate of fear” in Rwanda. As I have said before on Twitter, there’s definitely a climate of fear. But it’s not in Rwanda. There’s a climate of fear about Rwanda. The fear that Rwanda will continue to rise. Nobody’s…
