As Rwanda celebrated liberation of the country which happened 23 years ago, President Paul Kagame declared that the war to free Rwanda from bad leadership might have ended, but the battle in which every Rwandan must participate is one of striving towards attaining best standards of living.
The President who presided over the 23rd Liberation anniversary in Shyira, Nyabihu district yesterday noted that although bad leadership was defeated, they left about long term damages to the economy and politics which must be cleaned by the current leadership.
He observed; “Bad leadership under bad leaders has bad consequences in which poverty, famine, disease, hunger and dependency were fueled. These must be done away with,” he said.
He explained that in the past 23 years, the government has been preoccupied with reversing the evils that were left behind by the bad leadership of yesteryears. “We are achieving it, but there is still a long way to go.”
