#Rwanda-A thread: I’ve praised HE @PaulKagame 4 his strategic & speedy interventions in #Mozambique & #CAR. Considering the lethargy in Africa he’s a breath of fresh air. Well trained; disciplined & mobile & agile #Rwanda Defence Forces are good 4 Africa‘s Defence & Security
As a Defence & Security analyst, I don’t focus on the internal politics of #Rwanda. That’s for Rwandans to decide but Pres. @PaulKagame has done well. I was in Kigali in the 90s soon after the #RwandaGenocide. Kagame has restored the pride; ”agaciro ka’banyarwanda & Nat. Security
#Rwanda has recovered through tenacity & focused leadership. @CityofKigali is cleanest & safest City in Africa now. #Gacaca courts a homegrown solution has fostered reconciliation. Extremists & activists may not like Pres @PaulKagame bt #Rwandans like him. I like him too!
