Paul Kagame said to Rwandan Youth at the graduation of the “Itorero” training. August 2019. (Rwandan NYSC version) on how religion has manipulated some minds of Africans through Arab religion(Islam) and western version of Christianity.
“The 1994 genocide was an example of how the West are waiting on us to kill each other so they can share our gold and take our lands. I & your fathers came and stopped the killings.
Now, they are not happy, they might kill me, but before then, I want you to understand that your destiny is in your hands. Do not allow yourselves to be manipulated into thinking that you are inferior.

- The ‘world’s most beautiful girl’ from Nigeria finds big break in international modelling
Do not allow yourselves to be manipulated by Arab religion “Islam or the Western version of Christianity.
You must protect your cultural heritage, you must protect the lands, you must farm your food, you must protect the forest, you must fly rockets to the space, you must invent AI technology. You’re the pride of Africa, you must always remember this.”
Paul Kagame’s quotes
The efficiency of a President at the beginning of his term depends on their capacity to get everything under control. That was my case. But once the institutions have been put in place, and the responsibilities delegated, the leader becomes a reference, a referee, a symbol and unifying figure for the nation. The issue is how and when to recognize the moment when staying in power becomes counterproductive.
