Rwandan Economics- THREAD
Economy braved global economic constraints, climate shocks &inflationary pressure to grow at the 8.2% in FY 2022. Sectors that have driven the growth are Service representing 47% of the national GDP, agriculture-25% while Industry accounted for 21%
@TheGreatLakesE1 @Rwandan_Patriot @Rugusuki @RwandaFinance @RwandaOGS @jumuiya @r_rukaka @The_EastAfrican @guardian @business Rwanda’s GDP’s current market value is calculated at US$ 12,681,551,309 (Rwf13,716 billion) in 2022, having grown from up from US$ 10,121,462,424 (Rwf10,930 billion) in the FY2021.
Such metrics shows a remarkable growth in spite of the global economic difficulties owing to the Russia-Ukraine war and effects of the climate change.

#RwOT at Yuhi we have been testing the @SpaceX #Starlink in Rwanda so that you don't have to venture into it blindly and not knowing what to expect, and here are a couple of observations we have made for the last couple of weeks of using it... 🧵 ImageImage
1. It took about 12 days from the day it was shipped to be delivered to us. This was a door-to-door delivery, so there was no hustle with customs or getting licenses from RURA.
2. From the packaging it seemed like the dish wasn't new, it looked like it had been used (had dust)
3. The setup is straightforward - you just need to plug in the power cable to the router, then the ethernet cable from the router to the dish (For power and data).
4. They don't use the usual connectors, so make sure not to damage them cause it'll hard finding a replacement/spare

Some advice for foreign friends living in Rwanda:

Many foreigners in Rwanda get frustrated when people call, ‘Muzungu!’ Today I had an interesting experience at Umuganda. Two men watching me were talking and one said, ‘Atari muzungu, ari umunyarwanda!’ This made me think…
(Their words meant, ‘He is not a Muzungu, he is Rwandan!) It seems that the ideas of being ‘Muzungu’ or ‘Rwandan’ in my neighborhood are not just fixed to racial identity, but rather to how you engage in community.
Their words were so encouraging! Not only because I hope one day to be a Rwandan citizen, but also because it shows that Rwanda really is open to outsiders willing to do the work to engage.

So here are tips for those who want to transcend the name ‘Muzungu’:

Dear Mayor @PudenceR, Dear CEO @cakamanzi,
our restaurant @LoungeTania was closed yesterday, August 12, by the @RemeraRwanda E.S. for apparent "#noisepollution". #Kigali #RwOT #Rwanda
We are located in a commercial area in Gishushu (with little to no residential presence) and have been operational since February 2020. We have been organizing events on our front yard (mainly acoustic live band or DJ) since October 2021.
In May 2022, we received apparent "noise pollution" warnings/a 150K fine. Since June, we moved our events at the back, facing offices (M&M Plaza, Tele 10, RDB etc). Yesterday, @RemeraRwanda decided to close the restaurant after a complaint from a citizen living in Nyarutarama.

What most of us (young people) might not understand is that although our chances of recovery are high, we still run the risk of infecting people with weaker immune systems if we do not take necessary precautions. We should try and practice social distancing. #WashYourHands 🙏🏿❤️
Again #Rwot, a lot of people will lose their livelihood and only mean of putting food on the table, for a while, if we do not abide by the rules. Social distancing should be our civic duty. Stay home and stay safe 🙏🏿❤️

Thought I'd hold my peace but I get a sense that silence in the face of reckless, divisive & highly inflammatory posts that put our reputation & values, as a people and country, in disrepute is not an option. #Rwanda #RwOT 1/12
Someone has literally been shaming women who experienced sexual harassment or even rape, or whose loved ones have been victims, or for simply for denouncing rapists. He went as far as questioning the integrity of our justice system suggesting it is easily swayed by tweets! 2/12
Social media is an equaliser. You don’t need to be a lawyer or anybody for that matter to have a say on these streets. It’s an open space with a cocktail of different emotions, opinions & allegations, some fake. And not all must necessarily align with our biases or beliefs. 3/12

#Rwot Don’t take this Leadership for granted.

My father often says that these rights we have today ,the freedom of movement,the right to education and other rights in general ,plus the development we see everywhere were not here before.
He told me that back in the years,traveling from one district or one province to another for example Butare to Kigali ,recquired a special travelling permission referred to as a “ Laisser Passer.”
The permission lasted after some days and it was mandatory to show it to local authorities of the place you travelled to as a stranger in their constituency.

The countdown to #RWOT9 in Prague continues, and my review of some more of our advance reading and topic papers that were submitted to help inform the community about our mutual interests and the "weak signals" of the edges of decentralized identity tech to collaborate on…
TITLE Gently introducing DIDs to the Mastodon/ActivityPub Fediverse KEY CONCEPT Many in this community are joining us at #RWOT9 & this paper discusses how to transition their existing DNS-based actorIDs to use DIDs to allow portability between servers…
…"long term stability of a federated service crucially depends on persistent trust relations across all participants (developers, admins, users) that are not distorted by the implicit hierarchical structure of a centralized reference system, such as DNS."

1. En cette période de commémoration, je voudrais parler de Rose, une grande dame pour laquelle je veux tenir nos mémoires en éveil. Sa vie a basculé entre le 22/04 et le 17/06/1994. Chaque jour jusqu'au 17/06, je vais vous parler de celle qu'elle fut #laVieDeRose #Rwanda #RwOT🇷🇼
2. Comme toute chronique, l’itinéraire de vie que je vais vous raconter est divisé en plusieurs périodes. L'histoire de Rose suit le calendrier de l'Histoire de son pays natal, le Rwanda : avant 1959, entre 1959 et 1994, entre avril et juillet 1994 et après 1994. #laVieDeRose
3. Elle s’appelait donc Rose, et elle était aussi belle que la reine des fleurs. Comme ne tarderait pas à le démontrer son parcours accidenté de jeune fille, de femme, de mère puis de veuve, Rose appartenait à la version la plus résistante de l’arbuste dont elle porte le nom.
