Democracy wind from North Africa can not hit Rwanda, assures General Kagame

According to General Kagame, what happens in Tunisia, Egypt and other countries in North Africa can not happen in Rwanda. His best argument: he has been elected by 93% of the Rwandan voting population. Mr Mugenzi from London reminded him that other dictators like Mubarak had also ‘won’ the elections in their countries, but Kagame knows his people and he knows no-one in Rwanda would try to do what young people and political opponents have done elsewhere in Africa. Is he right or is he in denial?
Listen to his answer given during the live interview broadcast on BBC on Tuesday 22 March.
