H.E Paul Kagame:We now have security throughout the whole country. Rwandans and foreigners can go about their business without fear.
We owe all these developments to good governance that has taken root in our country. Through decentralisation, services have been brought closer to the people. Rwandans have a bigger role in choosing their own leaders and a say in programmes intended for them. Regular, free and peaceful elections are now part of Rwandan culture, as are accountability and transparency.
Leaders must present to citizens their programmes for evaluation, and if found unsatisfactory, leaders are answerable and where grave errors have been committed, they are punished.
Our economy continues to grow. In the last few years, our GDP has been growing at an average rate of 7% annually. Revenue collection has also increased so that that it now stands at more than half of our national budget – this means we can look forward to a near future when we will be self-sufficient.
Annual per capita income is now more than US $500. We are now self-sufficient in food production and even have excess for the market. Famine, which had become chronic in some parts of the country, has been eradicated.
Infrastructure has improved significantly, including roads, availability of clean water and electricity. The number of Rwandans with access to clean water has risen from 41% in 2003 to 80% today. 13% of households now have electricity – that figure was just 4% in 2000.

Yes, rwanda is full of fod, because kagame nd his allies have enough food, 98% of people are very poor nd children can hadly even eat dinner. It’s a sheme for mr Kagame to say that. I real don’t know why he said that. We are all rwandans and know the reality here men. Kagame forgot so fast his past life and the reality of hunger. most of us can even hardly eat.

What do you think about Kagame’s speeches?? Official speeches from a President! NO comments eh!! Shocking! About infrastructure, I believe that Rwanda would have been much much developed if there ws not that stupid War. Rwandans(like anyone else) need PEACE, FREEDOM, JUSTICE,IDENTITY before those fancy roads, electriciyt. Do you think Rwanda is more developed than Egypt!! Watch out!!

Rudasingwa is a psychatrist case and he should not be taken serious.
He has been saying that he left Rwanda with the perimission of the President, then why now make false declarations left and right. Why did Kagame let you go if you belive he is a killer? mind your language.
