Rwandan First Lady Jeannette Kagame honored by Oklahoma Christan University
Oklahoma (USA) – During the graduation ceremony at the Oklahoma Christian University where her husband Paul Kagame was the keynote speaker, Rwandan First Lady Jeannette Kagame was conferred an honorary Doctorate Degree for her significant contribution to the worldwide fight against HIV/AIDS and poverty.
In her acceptance speech, the First Lady acknowledged the honour, dedicated it to Rwandans and thanked the University for its contribution towards providing quality education to Rwanda’s youth.
“I dedicate this award to the resilient men, women and children of Rwanda, with whom we toil daily, and whose lives and testimony have put me at this place of honour and prestige,” Mrs Kagame said.
But Jeannette and husband Paul Kagame were to leave the premises hurriedly as Kagame was avoiding being served with a lawsuit accusing him of ordering former Rwandan President Habyarimana’s assassination and triggering the 1994 Rwandan genocide.
