Rwandan President Paul Kagame does what world’s best presidents do: inspire the people by drawing out the best to build a better society. This is one important reason why he is the toast of the world today
Hear Paul Kagame on Radio Rwanda: “If our country ranks first in Africa, and the whole world is watching us today, it is not because we have the Vatican, the Kaaba, the White House, the Elysée or the Taj Mahal here at home.
No more because you have a certain Paul Kagame as Head of State, but rather because you have sons and daughters of Rwanda in this country.
Men and especially young people and Rwandan women who have forgiven each other, and who have taken the destiny of their country in their hands, by the meaning of work, innovations and patriotism as key to their progress and development. What we are doing here in Rwanda is not a miracle, nor is it impossible elsewhere, it is simply the commitment of an entire nation, especially Rwandan youth and women, but also political will.
Soon, we will have the best universities in the world in our country (NYU, Harvard, London School of Economics, MIT …) We will also have the best hospitals in Rwanda. The intelligence and competence of our children will be equal to or greater than those of the great powers, and our country Rwanda will be a new door of opportunity, knowledge, technology and innovation for all African children and the world who want to learn from us or better still bring us their knowledge.
Rwanda will not only be at the rendezvous of civilizations, but also of science and technology and all the cultures that will dominate the world.
Today, more than 40% of our agriculture is being dominated by technology, Africa as a whole can do better than us for essential food self-sufficiency, it is all about national interest and the African people.
Although we are now far from our past, let us make good use of the present to hit the future. Because the most difficult thing is no longer where we come from, but rather where we want and dream to go. In Rwanda, we desire and dream to go far, thanks to these people and to this now conscious youth “
