Just how far has Rwanda risen, when it comes to political and economic growth? And how is everything going on in terms of the political and economic development of Rwanda since the genocide? To discuss these questions, The Heat spoke to:

  • Romeo Dallaire, the UN peacekeeper who bore witness to a genocide he was powerless to stop.
  • Nii Akuetteh, the Executive Director of the African Immigrant Council.
  • Cedric Muhammad, a macroeconomist and Managing Director of Africa PreBrief, an advisory and investment firm.

    Great broadcast, panelists however, they have no idea what they are talking about. General was talking about people like those panelists who support people who still have the same ideology that created Genocide. Rwanda is moving on working hard to shape its future. Rwandan people are making it happen. Great leadership only works if there is someone to lead. Kagame is not the beginning and the end and he never was. He is simply a good leader. Rwandan people want Kagame to run again. Where does that fit in your model of democracy? One of the panelists advised Kagame to use his influence in the Senate to deny what people need….? Is that democracy? True democracy is the democracy that respect the people and their needs because at the end of the the day it’s for them and not international community or politicians.
