- Frank Habineza elected as Head of the African Greens

- Americans should know that their tax dollars are going not to schools and hospitals, but to prop up dictatorship. (Didas Gasana)

Frank Habineza, chair of the Green Party of Rwanda, has been elected as President of the Executive Committee of the Federation of African Greens on April 18th in Kampala – Uganda.

Although his party and others, and the press, are still challenged in Rwanda, this is considered as a significant step.

Annie Garrison has made a radio report on Frank Habineza’s election and on the conditions prevailing in Rwanda before the presidential elections.
