Kigali, 25 July 2014


President Kagame today closed the seventh Itorero program bringing together more than 250 Rwandan youth living abroad, which took place at the Gabiro School of Combat in Gatsibo District. In an interactive address, President Kagame told the youth to guard their identity jealously because this is what will guide them in whatever they do, wherever they may be in the world.

Nothing stands in the way of staying true to yourself. No one should erase their identity and who they truly are. You must build on your identity because Rwanda belongs to you and you belong to your country. It is about your identity, knowing who you are and your values.”

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:
