President Paul Kagame and the Government of Rwanda on Sunday joined World leaders to congratulate the U.S President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on their historical victory.

“President Kagame and the Government of Rwanda have congratulated U.S. President-elect @JoeBiden and Vice President-elect @KamalaHarris upon their victory;

“We look forward to building on the strong partnership between our countries,” the President’s Office tweeted on Sunday.

It was on Saturday, after four days of voting, that Democratic Party candidate Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. defeated Donald Trump in a landslide victory.

Biden, 78, pipped incumbent Trump in one of the U.S most competitive elections, garnering 50.6 percent of the total votes cast, equivalent to 75,198,127 -the highest number of votes to be received by any U.S Presidential candidate, giving him 290 electoral college votes, compared to Trump’s 214.

Kamala Harris, on the other hand, became the first female Vice President in the history of America, and the first Black person and the first person of South Asian descent to be elected to the second most coveted position in U.S politics.
