Fight corruption by not participating in it

Kigali, 21 July 2014


President Kagame has told African youth that the best way to fight corruption is by aspiring to achieve great things through decent means. During an interactive session with youth from various African countries who are participating at the Youth Dialogues conference organized by the Mandela Institute for Development Studies (MINDS) in Kigali, President Kagame told the young Africans to desist from participating in corruption because then, they would be helping to entrench the social vice.

Responding to various questions from young men and women from different parts of Africa, President Kagame said young people should be assertive and resist injustice in whatever form it manifests itself:

“You need to be stubborn. As they stay on course of causing you problems, you stay on the course of pushing back. At the end you are the ones who pay the price if it goes wrong and benefit if it goes right.”

President Kagame today visited Muhanga District, where he was received by thousands of Muhanga residents in Kiyumba cell.

Welcoming President Kagame, the Mayor of Muhanga District, Yvonne Mutakwasuku said the district had come from a region blighted by insecurity, poverty and underdevelopment to one with security, rapid development and people who are enthusiastic about working to change their lives.

In his address, President Kagame said the development will come to Muhanga and spread to the entire nation when all Rwandans work together, with everyone making their contribution in different ways.

“We achieve because we chose to work together. We each have a role to play so that together we achieve more every day.We cannot maintain our development without security. Those who don't want you to develop start by trying to distabilise your security. We must learn from our past. Progress and security cannot be temporary and we must therefore work to maintain it.”

President Kagame, Obiang Nguema call for African solidarity

Kigali, 15 July 2014

Presidents Kagame and Teodoro Obiang Nguema of Equitorial Guinea have called for increased African cooperation with the aim of finding solutions to African problems through the South-South cooperation. While jointly addressing the press at the end of President Nguema’s two-day visit, the two Presidents underscored the need for African nations to focus on matters that will improve the lives of their people.

President Kagame said the discussions with President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo were fruitful and that practical steps would be taken to achieve even more.

Responding to a question about how Rwanda has managed to transform in such a short time, President Kagame said that after the Genocide, the Rwanda leadership had to change the politics and management so that the people could have a dignified life:

“We put the well being of Rwandans ahead and made sure there is accountability and raising everyone's stake in our development. We need to make progress on the development that matters to our people.”

President Nguema observed that the South-South Cooperation could be more efficient if African nations went through practical steps than indulging in bureaucracies in order to consolidate synergies for African development.
